If there is any chance for peace in Europe, it is obvious that is lies in the hands of the ordinary Europeans, Ukrainians and Russians. Do not fall for your government's propaganda, for blinded nationalism and the promise that your interests lie in a nation state, a national government or on constant power games between your nation's and other neighboring ones.

"Internet a permis de nombreux développements, notamment celui des sites d’entraide et de partage ou la mise en relation entre particuliers. Du covoiturage à la récupération, de la location de logements inoccupés au prêt entre particuliers, c’est tout un écosystème qui se développe, offrant des solutions moins chères voire gratuites aux consommateurs. Parfois en concurrence avec des entreprises, ces services créent souvent des opportunités inexistantes. [...] Des solutions innovantes offrant aux citoyens des possibilités nouvelles et plus avantageuses, c’est bien trop libéral, et ça crée une concurrence à l’économie traditionnelle. Vite, règlementons, taxons, interdisons ! [...] Ce n’est pas seulement l’écosystème de la mise en relation entre particuliers qu’il faut tuer dans l’œuf, mais l’idée même de la solidarité et du partage."

The risks are clear: capture of regulators and legislators by industry sectors, resulting in law-making done in support of private, rather than the public interest; influence-peddling by EU legislators to negotiate attractive employment offers after leaving office; and the exercise of undue influence on the EP and the use of insider information when ex-MEPs are in their new roles.

Cerise sur le gâteau: "So sieht sich Litauens Staatschefin Dalia Grybauskaité zum Beispiel schon praktisch im Krieg mit Russland."

Der rechte Hardliner tritt auch in der Sanktionsfrage aufs Gas: In einer Woche soll über eine Verschärfung gesprochen werden, die Tusk längst gefordert hatte. ... Mogherini wurde trotz der Vorwürfe einer "russlandfreundlichen Haltung" und angeblich fehlender Erfahrung ernannt: Dass sie nun doch gewählt wurde, hatte mit der Hartnäckigkeit von Renzi zu tun und mit der Tatsache, dass sie eine Frau ist. ... Nun steigen die Chancen dafür, dass auch Merkels Kandidat als Eurogruppenchef durchkommt. Das soll ausgerechnet ein Manager der Pleitebank Lehman Brothers werden. Der Spanier Luis de Guindos: Unter seiner Ägide hat Spanien Rekorde bei Verschuldung und Defizit erklommen. 2013 fiel es in Spanien mit 10,6 Prozent sogar noch höher aus als in Griechenland...
