Cyclops awakens displeased

It cannot have escaped your notice: the giant one-eyed giant standing watch along the Flemish E17 motorway.éénoog After centuries of peace, the Cyclops awakened with a sour feeling. What he saw worried him: what happened to the fighting spirit of past eras? What caused commitment and dedication to be replaced by impotence and indifference?
The strong European Union, based on the promise of economic stability and solidarity remains a fleeting ideal rather than a concrete reality. Fuelled by constant selfishness and narcissism. Patiently conceded to through a weak currency and dilatory politicians.

  • More rules, while fewer are needed …
  • More taxes rather than fewer …
  • More involvement and less autonomy …
  • Minimal realisations against massive costs …
