The EU is coming out of it’s life threatening crisis better and stronger!!

(In Nederlands)

The EU is coming out of this life threatening crisis better and stronger!!! NO WAY..NO F#CKING WAY!!! that it will be brain death as the US, UK, NATO and their sympathisers here in Europe and EU want!!! We are going to defeat and defuse the collaborators and nationalists in the EU!!!

First of all, there will be an end as soon as possible to this nasty proxy war that they have deliberately provoked in Ukraine with…again…disastrous consequences for the country, region and world…just like Afghanistan and Iraq. Also Ukraine, Belarus and Russia will become EU members towards 2045!!! When we commemorate and celebrate in Europe that the horrible destructive Second World War ended 100 years ago here in 1945.. #StrongerTogether #WeAreEurope

From which these nationalists and collaborators out and inside Europe-EU learned nothing. Nor from their earlier destructive and disastrous projects in Afghanistan 2001-2021 and especially Iraq 2003. Who ever thought that people here would fall for it…again?!?!

And in 2045 NATO as we know it today will no longer exist!! Even though it now thinks to be alive again because of the conflict in Ukraine after the French president Macron recently called NATO brain death…now the EU seems to become brain death after taking a wrong turn. But this is just an apparent phase…just like the earlier claimed NATO ‘successes’ of its missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan and Iraq and Libya and Syria…and so now Ukraine.

NATO took the wrong turn by collaborating with US and UK and their sympathisers in their egocentric nationalistic project against Russia…and against the EU(!!). And will, unlike the EU, not be able to come back and recover from that.

So the EU gets its own EUropean Defence Union – EDU to collectively protect the territories of its member states and their strategic interest in the world.

It will be a hard fight towards 2045. But we as Europeans will win…again…against this bad nationalism!!! The European Dream is not killed today…after we learned these painful lessons in our history
Nor is the European Union – the EU!!!

AN UNDIVIDED EUROPE!!!

#StrongerTogether #WeAreEUrope🇪🇺

Versailles! How cynical…

“The additional sanctions still have to be approved by the leaders of the 27 member states. They will meet in the French city of Versailles on Thursday and Friday.”

Versailles! How cynical…😖

And the attendees have apparently learned nothing from the painfully acquired lessons of our European past!😔

Are they just gullible or downright malicious then!🤷‍♂️🤦

Or will Macron have a higher purpose in doing so after all?🤔

Together with Merkel, he was one of the few people in the EU who did show knowledge and understanding of these historical lessons and who did want a more inclusive European solution to the conflict with Russia.

Or is that false hope again?🤷‍♂️

It remains very difficult for me to stay calm and reasonable when I see too many fellow EUropeans collaborating with…

It looks like I will have to confess that my mission has failed..

(In het Nederlands)

In these days of…again…”Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.” the so needed Disclaimer


Firstly, for consideration…”So You really think that if…

“NEVER AGAIN!!” I swore over 40 years ago in 1980 as a boy of 12 between the far too many headstones at the huge American military cemetery in Normandy. During our holiday in France, when I insisted on visiting the D-Day landing sites and this cemetery, my mother and father told me. Intensely crying and sobbing. It became the mission of my life, my training, my task..still..almost every day, almost every hour…far too often…far too long…but I found it necessary and did my best.

This painting hangs above my bed and reminds me every day of my mission and pledge every day. Even in the regular moments when I wanted to drop out, badly frustrated by what was happening…wanted to quit altogether…so much people made in my opinion the same mistakes again…went along with wrong projects and wars again…but still continued on.

But if I return there one day, more then 40 years later, it looks like I will have to confess that my mission has failed. Europe is once again divided, in a hard Cold War with now bloody proxy war in Ukraine. New iron curtains are strengthened and expanded. Enemy thinking, hatred and demonisation are spread through the now modern much more extensive and powerful propaganda and disinformation channels and thus reinforced. Mass forming and hysteria follows, new form of Mccarthyism is back. Because our current leaders…American and British leaders in front… harshly and egocentrically rejected an inclusive undivided Europe

So right after the flattening of the terrible and stressful years of our collective global corona pandemic and crisis they took their change…apparently nothing learned from that yet either.

I never thought then that…after more than 40 years of fighting for “NEVER AGAIN”, for peace and security and the European dream as I learned it and feel it deeply in my system…our current leaders, including those of all those then fallen and still mostly young Americans, would so betray their sacrifice.

What a sad day it will be…


Update 21 May 2022
‘It looks like I will have to confess that my mission has failed…’
NO IT IS NOT!!!⚔️😠
As this is not my EU and Europe!!😠
This bad nationalists and their collaborators are..again..not gonna win!!
So towards an undivided EUrope🇪🇺 in 2045!!💪

So You really think that if…

(In het Nederlands)

In these days of…again…”Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.” the so needed Disclaimer


So You really think that if tens of thousands of dead and wounded were considered acceptable (“We are so sorry for you loss”) in their projects in Afghanistan and Iraq from 2001 and 2003 onwards from their nationalist self-centred doctrines…

Project 2 uuhh 1 – After the very painful 9/11 surprise. The Bush administration, which had just taken office, was already busy with Iraq and neglected the clear warnings. While many experts suggested bombing, it became Project 1 of the Bush Doctrine..forced regime change and occupation to bring democracy American Style. Would have welcomed the Afghans just like the Germans and Japanese with open arms.

The Taliban were primitive barbarians, still living in the stone age and as diabolical as their Al Qaeda cronies and their leader Osama Bin Laden! 20 years of American and Western military power, including NATO, just like during the Russian occupation earlier, could not break the Afghan resistance. Also because many more Afghans supported them than was claimed..and really not all of them were forced..but because they did not want democracy and progressive frivolous freedoms (yet). At least not forced upon them by.. (mostly Christian).. foreigners.. again. The Taliban is back in power after a debacle of a retreat..and there are now talks and negotiations with “those barbarians”…

Project 1 uuhh 2 – After the apparently easy and successful start at project 2..uuhh 1.. in Afghanistan.. that would be all right!!..the critics were all wrong!!.. did the Bush administration go after all quickly back to work planning for their original main project of their Bushdoctrine.. forced regime change and occupation of Iraq. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Tony Blair, anti-EU-skeptical(!!), who has become enthusiastic about Afghanistan and (nationalistically) realised the greatness of also his country Great Britain besides his important, god-given, role in the fight of Christian good against evil…Islam uuhh Terror!!… was happy to participate now.

Because that devilish psychopath Saddam Hussein, from ally, to (misled) conqueror in 1990/1991 evil occupation of ally Kuwait!! That had already been severely punished then.. but not finished by father Bush (the dumbass!! because after that almost killed by order of Hussein.. they said). That cruelty troublemaker, defying Americans and their power and allies in the Gulf now really needed to be eliminated. And the Iraqi people, like Germany and Japan in WW2, would be gratefully liberated and propelled in the development of peoples, like the Afghans, under inspiring American-British leadership. Possibly next projects the equally evil regimes in Syria and Iran. Democracy in the region, peace…and ally Israel happy. Could he give the Palestinians something with freedom and rights…or not…also well…Jordan, after all, already the Palestinian state. President Bush, now somewhat less inexperienced, decided after the eventual dramatic development in Iraq and disappointing in Afghanistan to abandon these new projects. His government and policy were therefore changed in the second period.

However, the criticism and protests against this new-old project 1 uuhh 2 were unprecedentedly fierce, large, widely shared… even large groups of former soldiers and politicians wrote protest letters. People warned that a Pandora’s box was about to be opened in the region. But they did not listen in Washington and London and friendly capitals. After all, there was now fait accompli evidence that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and, according to Blair, he would be able to fire many missiles at Europe at any moment and in a short time! That this was all self-fabricated evidence and lies many already understood but heard most only later during the investigations after this debacle.

So the green light was given. Supported by many Western and European governments (including actively by the Polish…and politically supported by the Dutch). The once again enormous military build-up in the still friendly Gulf states. Which presence of so many American/western/Christian military in the core country of Islam Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War in 1991 radicalised Osama Bin Laden and made him found Al Qaeda..you know of 9/11 attack and reason for project 2 uuhh 1. Thousands of Iraqi soldiers were literally buried in their trenches or roasted in their tanks.

The Iraqi people, however, did not take to the streets en masse. That was already a worrying omen and had been warned about beforehand. The weapons of mass destruction were not found..despite everything being double-edged. Saddam Hussein, however, was eventually found like a weasel in a hole, his sons having already been killed in battle. Going down fighting is not his thing as a great Arab ruler, but he did go down screaming and cursing on the gallows. Would Bush and Blair have done the same or pissed their trousers? What seemed to be a success soon became a great tragic drama. Pandora’s box had indeed been opened in Iraq and in the region, even in nearby continents and in the world…with consequences also in European streets, cafes and theatres.

So you really think that if tens of thousands of dead and wounded were considered acceptable (“We are so sorry for you loss”) in their projects in Afghanistan and Iraq from 2001 and 2003 onwards from their nationalist self-centred doctrines…it became hundreds of thousands dead and wounded…

…and millions of displaced people and refugees…also towards the EU, civil wars in Syria and Libya, failed states, the bloody collapse of the Arab democratic spring in Egypt, the rise of IS, genocide Yazidis and many bloody terror attacks in the world…also the EU, even more big-brother-like measures to prevent them, eliminating the IS in bloody battle, flaring up nuclear weapons problems in Iran and North Korea (who felt even more threatened by the forced regime changes and occupations in Afghanistan and Iraq), economic misery, even more loss of credibility in our democratic system and therefore also growth of religious radicalism elsewhere and extremism and conspiracy thinking here, more assertive steps by countries such as China, Turkey and Russia, and so on… and then I probably forgot a lot of things still…

So you really think that if tens of thousands of dead and wounded were considered acceptable (“We are so sorry for you loss”) in their projects in Afghanistan and Iraq from 2001 and 2003 onwards from their nationalist self-centred doctrines…it became hundreds of thousands dead and wounded and millions of displaced people and refugees…that those few thousand dead and wounded Ukrainians and Russians and tens of thousands…already millions of…displaced and fleeing Ukrainians, the still nationalistic American and British governments Biden and Johnson and their supporters in NATO and here in Europe would stop this time and really care so much?! Now within this still ongoing primary US-UK project (that already started late 1990’s and was accelerated by US Bush and UK Blair administrations from 2001’s) of their still egocentric nationalistic doctrines and projects (like recently AUKUS).

Those who did keep a more broader objective view then and now understood what happened…and what the main cause was then and still is now…learned the lessons from Europe’s own war-rich history and also from these recent projects, would never follow our EU leaders decision so supportive and gullibly into another (proxy)war as has happened now…again…

The EU took the wrong turn..

(In het Nederlands)

Update: The attack on Ukraine unfortunately also took place… Putin apparently saw after the talks no hope for an inclusive European solution (that’s what Russia was asking for!!) and the need to perpetuate the Russian red lines again that he had been pointing at for so long… and explained the reasons for that. Horrible for the Ukrainian civilians and soldiers, but also Russian soldiers and civilians. And that after the great human tragedies in Afghanistan and especially Iraq and region and world!!! (the US, UK, NATO and supporters here were apparently for more reasons in a rush now!!).
No lessons learned?!?! Because too many also apparently did not learn the lessons of those wrong nationalistic projects or quickly forgot them, it seems that also my over 40 years (life)mission has failed. Thank you also on behalf of so many Europeans…unfortunately a minority, also within politics and fellow experts…who did remember, correctly understood and continued to apply these painfully learned historical European lessons and therefore recent lessons… and so wanted like me an inclusive and undivided Europe!!! But too many…part loyal gullible but also bad collaborators
and most because of the huge amount of propaganda and disinformation right here with and towards us and effects of mass formation and hysteria, now think that the failure of this all and this horrific proxy war in Ukraine is the fault of only Russia and even only this devilish Putin himself!!! They should know

So the end of the EUropean dream!!! And not NATO but the EU now brain death!! Or is it not still…?! I still hold out a tiny bit of hope…a tiny bit…


Sorry to tell you..the EUropean dream has come to an end..

The EU took a wrong turn last week. The majority decided to remains part of Pax Americana..meaning divided and controlled. That means it will get weaker and I expect also breaking up further..

Because if you do not create a solid foundation under your own building but lean on another building next to yours, your building will collapse in even a light storm, if the owner of that other building will reduce its support to your building out of self-interest (and they probably will do one day…). And by using this construction, you are already creating a strong wind at your building..

And so Europe is divided again by a new iron curtain that will increasingly take shape in the coming years. So we are back in the old days before 1989, the days of the “old” Cold War. Which actually never really stopped in certain political capitals and too many heads. For a time to which too many (former)politicians and think-tankers still look back with positive nostalgia.

So life in the EU will get tougher in the coming decades, given the increasingly tough geopolitical and geoeconomic battle for influence in the world and for a larger share of the wealth. Poorer people want their share too. Creating more wealth is becoming increasingly difficult now that the earth is exhausted and climate change requires reduction.And we have it in abundance. But protect it badly. So less prosperity and less well-being for EUropeans.. sad future.. own fault!!

Sadly recognition of Donetsk and Luhansk was a logical next step of Russia to take when an inclusive undivided European solution and vision was constantly torpedoed by US, UK, NATO and (EU) allies. Despite efforts by Germans new chancellor Scholz and especially by the French president Macron!! Besides sanctions against Russia will not help at all!! I explained in this thread on Twitter..

So it was the EU, the real centre and goal of this conflict, who faced a fundamental choice!! Remain part of Pax Americana, divided and controlled in a divided Europe, as USA, UK and supporters want?! Or an autonomous Pax EUropaea, of which Ukraine, Belarus and Russia also become part?!

Sadly, the majority of the leaders of the EU took the wrong turn. They want to remain being part of Pax Americana. The moment of the “The EU now faces..” in the title of a former blog post is past now…

As an EUropean Dutch polemologist I chose for an autonomous Pax EUropaea and an undivided Europe. I defended that vision for 27 years now.. but I lost last week. Sadly Merkel left office. She kept earlier attempts (like in March 2021) of the US, UK, NATO and their supporters within the EU down and gave hope for an inclusive European future.

She left and they took their chance. Putin’s Russia then put them on the spot but they flatly refused to come to an inclusive European solution. As Putin likes(ed) it to.. also his vision from 2010. Only the French president Macron made still an real attempt into this direction but lost the battle without the direct support of Merkel and with the new German chancellor Scholz still too weak and unexperienced.

The cynical thing is that by offering that, Russia would not be appeased, but rather put in front of the bloc itself. Do you want Putin’s vision or not? If so, develop and implement a vision, towards an inclusive and undivided Europe. If not, and not for relevant reasons, we know that your intentions are probably not positive. That is also why I am completely convinced that the US, UK, NATO and their supporters in the EU absolutely did not want this. Also without Putin. Not even if Russia had been a democracy.

Russia does/(did) not want this situation at all..as it also fears neighbour China! Therefore Putin’s vision in 2010 for creating first a EU-Russia free trade zone and even joining EU!!! This proposal repeated by Merkel in 2015 as peace gesture!! But well.. too many EU politicians, journalists and colleagues prefer to believe our power and economic competi… uuhh… allies who were and are vehemently against this vision!!

In authoritarian one-party state China, Xi Jinping and the regime look on with satisfaction. The EU again divided and controlled by the US.. weakened.. will further weaken and disintegrate!! And Russia, fearing for China and resisting, is being pressed more firmly into their sphere of influence and will soon have lost Siberia.. as the Chinese regime is looking for much more lebensraum…

So end of the story of the EUropean dream..
So end of a strong(er) more autonomous EU..
So end of the EU..?!
Future will tell.. but I am not hopeful..


Former US president Trump had warned us in a way.. in all his bluntness but irreverent openness sometimes. Told what he thought of the EU. And the Republicans and Democrats think the same about the EU!! But our EU politicians and experts were far too busy with their obsession with Putin and their underestimation of the corona pandemic..

More recently, we as EU received another clear warning about this anti-EU power politics from the US and it’s close allies..AUKUS!! But people here liked to mock president Macron and France more than to see the real implications for the EU itself. I already saw the problem..

And I have been proved right in recent weeks!! Unfortunately…

Talking about this kind of deception, propaganda and disinformation of these two allies, the US and UK… in 2003!! With very deadly destructive impact in Iraq, region, EU and world..
Hundreds of thousands death and wounded, many killed and wounded soldiers of our own, major refugees and migration flows, IS, terror, failed democratic rise, failed states, North Korea and Iran’s nuclear weapons problem, loss of own credibility, etc.)..
And still..many seem already to have forgotten. Just as they have apparently forgotten other lessons from our European past!!

So who was really firing up the conflict with Russia around Ukraine?!
I know.. I warned.. but the propaganda and disinformation was to great and extensive. So unfortunately most still think differently.. see Putin’s Russia as the main guilty one.. even too many of my colleagues.

So, sadly too, many still think that nothing has changed. The EU can go on as before. Can get more autonomous. Enlarge. They are wrong!! And they are going to feel it.. painfully.. as the wrong turn has been taken. The EU project is over. It will be something of the past soon. So get used to it. It’s going to be a tough ride…


And our EU politicians also thank you on behalf of our, Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian children by the way ..who.. just like Putin turns out, if you had believed and trusted him and not his (and our) opponents.. also saw their future within an inclusive undivided EUropa!!

No no not so…na-na-na-na-na!!!!

Nothing learned from…?!

Tragic that EUrope and America too seems to have forgotten the main lesson of the First World War. A defeated opponent (then Germany, now USSR>Russia after the Cold War) who feels unjustly treated is more revanchist and thus more dangerous than one you embrace and integrate again.

Is it getting through yet?! Germany.. despite terrible crimes of the Holocaust.. we embraced and integrated again after the Second World War. While Russia… fundamentally important to our liberation then… has been deliberately excluded again since 1990s.. and is not allowed to mention that and be angry about that?! And… how painfully… takes [took!] hard steps, because a fundamental red line, when the answer remains “njet”?!

So what we need [needed?] is an inclusive undivided EUropean vision towards 2045!! When we celebrate and remember the end of that horrific Second World War 100 years ago. Not (cold)warmonger talk of people who seems to have forgotten also the lessons of that war!!

Really?! Does it have to be Germany now [addition: at least so it seemed…but Merkel is gone and so is their understanding of and perseverance in this apparently…] to remind so many European and American politicians, military, journalists and think tankers here of the primary lessons of the First World War, the Second World War and Cold War and urge them to act accordingly in the interests of all of Europe (is also Russia)?!..Really?!?!

AN UNDIVIDED EUROPE!!

(In Nederlands)

Update 21-05-2022
– In 2045, NATO will no longer exist. Even though it now thinks to be alive again because of the conflict in Ukraine after the French president Macron recently called NATO brain death…now the EU seems to become brain death after taking a wrong turn. But this is an apparent phase…just like the earlier claimed NATO successes of its missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan and Iraq and Libya and Syria…and so now Ukraine. The organisation took the wrong turn by collaborating with US and UK and their sympathisers in their egocentric nationalistic project against Russia…and the EU(!!). And will, unlike the EU, not be able to come back and recover from that.


I was born during the Cold War, in June 1968. When studying Political science with specialisation in Polemology/War studies it ended. Not good for my future employment, not good at all I discovered later (because world peace had broken out they said) but still I was very happy as I love peace!!

The end of the Cold War meant the end of the Iron Curtain, end of Berlin Wall, end of divided Germany, end of communist authoritarian state USSR, end of a divided Europe!!

But the Cold War was deliberately fired up again in the late 90’s and especially from 2001. By American nationalists in the White House and their pro-Atlantic European allies, especially the EU skeptic UK. In their erroneous nationalistic Bush doctrine focus not alone on Afghanistan and Iraq.

Probably motivated by and against the growing relationship between Russia and EU in the years before, that in their view undermined NATO. So their own influence and strong positions in and via this organisation on the EU and Europe.

Especially towards the EU, ally, but also more and more a geopolitical and geoeconomic competitor of the USA, and now after Brexit the UK. Maybe logical from their strategic interests but very egocentric and not from the interest or good for the EU or even Europe as a whole!!

New iron curtains built in Europe, new tensions, new cold war, large military movements and new cold war language, disinformation and propaganda!!

Unacceptable!! Unacceptable!!

Tragic that also the EU seems to have forgotten the primary lesson of the First World War!! A defeated country (then Germany now USSR>Russia after Cold War) that feels unjustly treated and excluded is more revanchist and thus more dangerous for peace and stability than one you embrace and integrate again (Germany after the Second World War)!!

So I want an undivided European future!! Not a new divided Europe and new Cold War!!

An undivided Europe with an European Defence Union – EDU as part of the reformed European Union EU.

As NATO of today is our past and EDU and a reformed NATO our future!!

With first a solution and peace plan for the cruel war in Eastern Ukraine. That must end before any other step will be taken!!

And justice for the MH17 tragedy and its victims!!

Without that no deal and no end to the economic sanctions for Russia!!

Within this new strategic peace and security structure and vision for Europe and a renewed friendship between the EU and Russia this can culminate in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.. after reforms and as constitutional free democracies(!!).. joining the EU before 2045, when we commemorate and celebrate the end of the horrific Second World War 100 years ago in Europe. Putin will retire from politics in that process. I think he wants that for a long time already. But he can still secure and anchor the treaties and start the changing process as a sign of goodwill and trust in both ways.

And to show and proof that this was always his own desired European vision too. As by offering this inclusive EUropean vision, Russia would not be appeased, but rather put in front of the bloc itself. Do you want Putin’s vision or not? If so, develop and implement a vision, towards an inclusive and undivided Europe. If not, and not for relevant reasons, we know that your intentions are probably not positive.

As also the younger Russian generations feel being part of Europe and want to become part of the EU. As Daria Navalnaya said when she receives the Sakharov Prize, the European Union’s top human rights prize, on behalf of her father.
“…Russia is a part of Europe, and we strive to become a part of it.
But we also want Europe to strive for itself, to those amazing ideas, which are at its core. We strive for a Europe of ideas, the celebration of human rights, democracy and integrity.”
https://euronews.com/my-europe/2021/12/15/navalny-s-daughter-accepts-eu-s-highest-human-rights-award-on-his-behalf

Developments which hopefully the governments of America and UK will support this time and will join. I think in the end also better for them!!

So also Russia, Ukraine and Belarus becoming members of a reformed and refocused NATO this time.

Within a reformed NATO, the Northern Alliance Treaty Organisation, with the same defensive role but a different structure, different focus and with more new member states.

So we can counter and deter the real main threat to our Western and European security, welfare, wellbeing and stability today and tomorrow, revanchist totalitarian communist/Maoist one-party regime and state China!! Which is also a major threat to Russia!!! That is why Russia is so keen on joining the West and the EU!!!

As I find it bizarre that where we have conducted 46 years of Cold War against that other totalitarian communist/Stalinist 1-party dictatorship of former times..the USSR..deliberately(!!) restarted in the 1990’s against a militarily and economically much weaker and still not totalitarian Russia…

..the EUropean and western governments want to stay economic partners and friends with a dictatorial China?! Even after the corona crisis and cultural genocide against the Uyghur minority?! Really that is in my opinion as a child and adult of the Cold War totally bizarre!!

SO IT IS TIME FOR CHANGE!!

TOWARDS AN UNDIVIDED EUROPE AND A REFORMED NATO IN 2045!!


Because in this time of war mongering and mass formation/hysteria and where Mccarthyism seems to have returned and anyone who, like me, has a more balanced view of developments is called a fearsome Putinversteher, or worse, traitor, this disclaimer is unfortunately necessary…

Strategic Vision European Union – EU 2045


downloadlast updated: 19-07-2022 15:20
– Addition need for EU equivalents for too dominant US and Chinese tech giants. Design updated.
– Supplement on aligned aspects of EU labour market.
– Underline that this is not a federation United States of Europe, as several people, organisations and politicians now want, but a special confederation of EUrope.
– Larger EU Parliament (672) and more (assistent)commissionars (16+48).
– Switzerland became member of EU/EDU before 2045.
– Russia will also become a member of the EU before 2045. Still unthinkable today. But historically important, strategically important, and above all it offers a common European future for the younger Russian generations.

– Exit 2043, now snapshot 2045, 100 years after end of WO2. This is more symbolic of Europe as a whole.

Enlargement of the EU continued for a while. Brexit saw the UK leave the EU. But Brexit meant also the end of the United Kingdom. Scotland and Wales became independent states and were welcomed back into the EU. England joined the EU later too after a new referendum supported that move. Northern Ireland and Ireland merged. Also the candidate countries in the Balkans.
enlargement_doorhalf_open_sl


The end of the Ukraine conflict meant the relation between Ukraine and Russia and between EU and Russia got better again step by step. A far-reaching cooperation treaty was concluded with both Ukraine and Russia, first becoming primary partners of the EU. EU membership of Russia and Ukraine was realised before 2045, 100 years after the end of the Second World War. So happened with Belarus, Georgia and Armenia. Also Switzerland followed after these positive developments.

The long-sought Turkish EU membership became no reality because the resistance against it within the EU remained too strong and Turkey itself decided to chose a different course and to strengthen another economic, political and security union, the Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO). But a far-reaching cooperation treaty between Turkey and EU was concluded.

EU 2045 In General

Politics and administration
No EUropean presidents, only chairmen/chairwomen of the EUropean Council, the EUropean Commission, the Council of EU, the EUropean Central Bank and the EUropean Parliament. So in the end not a federation United States of Europe, as several wanted and probably still want, but a special confederation of EUrope!!

The EUropean Parliament is made up of members of existing national parliaments of the EU member states. A parliamentary double mandate: proportional selection of national representatives also sit in the EUropean Parliament. So no more separate EUropean parliamentary elections. Representation changes after national elections. The EUropean Parliament only reside in Brussels and meets several times a year, with each time focusing on a particular policy area or overall EU policy.

In this alternative strategic vision the parliament is much more decisive than the current EU Parliament (preferable the national parliaments of EU member states too!!). It is the legislature. The EUropean Commission, with sixteen departments with sixteen commissioners and forty-eight assistant commissioners, the executive. The EUropean Council provides advice to Parliament and also has the right of initiative.
In this alternative strategic vision the EUropean Parliament has 672 members, 16 from each of the 42 countries that will form the EU in 2045. With different voting weight for each national delegation. Legislation is drafted, discussed and decided upon in the separate parliamentary committees (minimum 16, 1 per department) with its own independent chairman. This is followed by a plenary vote where all parliamentarians are present and vote. Voting by absolute majority, three-quarters or in a limited number of areas still unanimously.

EU treaties that transfer national competences are only adopted if there is a two-thirds majority in national parliaments. Restraint in relation to far-reaching international free trade agreements. The EU’s core values ​​are absolutely leading in this respect, to strengthen and maintain its own credibility.

Economy
Remittance to the EU is a fixed percentage of GDP, which is the same for all member states. EU member states that do not comply with rules or budget agreements should be suspended. The EU must budget more transparently and also account for that budget per country.
Capture


The free movement of employees within the European Union has been restricted for some time, work permit needed again. The conditions required for this free movement…such as a more level economic playing field and a common language…were not yet present. Steps in that direction, such as the active equalisation of wages within the EU and the learning of a common language, Euranto, have been taken and are being further strengthened.

As far as the Euro is concerned, the Stability and Growth Pact remain guiding and strictly enforced. Groups of countries within the EU can proceed with further integration than elsewhere in the EU.

Both financially and with legislation and policy (e.g. protection schemes), equivalents within the EU of the far too dominant American and Chinese tech companies such as Google, Apple, Meta/Facebook/Instagram, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft, TikTok, Alibaba and their products, browsers or operating systems for computers and mobile phones.

Common language
EUrido (modernised version of Esperanto/Ido, which has a high symbolic historic value for Europe in view of its Jewish creator Leyzer Zamengov) has become the EU main language. In addition to the national and regional languages she will be included in the basic package at all (lower) schools within the EU.

Flag
In addition to the own national flag, the EU flag is showed on government buildings and in Parliaments of the EU member states. This is to strengthen the EUropean identity without neglecting national identity(ies) and certainly not a development towards a United States of Europe. Which I believe is undesirable. 41093730_303
