HOW TO DEFEND DEMOCRACY

19-03-2017

With Vladimir Putin in Russia, Donald Trump in America and Recep Erdogan in Turkey. the post war world order is confronted with new forms of autocracy,- in addition to the regimes in China, North Korea and the Middle-East. With populism rampant in several European countries, autocracy may be within easier reach. Just watch how the Brexit tragedy is unfolding in Great Britain, or shall we say in England and Scotland.  For those of us, who still believe in democracy as the most viable political system, we must try to learn from the cruel and violent twentieth century how to defend and save democracy. Timothy Snyder's 20 lessons are worth reading and following up. You can find the lessons below under document 63.pdf.

European Unification into the Twenty First Century

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The story of European Unification is fascinating. In 1950, two sworn enemies – France and Germany – decide to seek reconciliation and European federal unity. As a first step, they created the European Coal and Steel Community together with Italy and the Benelux countries. The fathers of this new Europe were visionary persons. Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?
