The future of Europe : the Two presidents – a thought

To the rules of the game of diplomacy, you know, but not always, on your application speaks. Thus, it is also difficult to prove whether or not there has been between the Elysee and the Bellevue in those days, a breast-feeding contact. A contact that Frank-Walter Steinmeier, in comparison to his French colleagues is more likely to make poor German head of state, in a speech before the American Academy in Berlin last Tuesday evening a number of those thoughts of Emmanuel Macron took the same Morning Newspapers in the 28 EU-States had spread. Then again, a day later, the French Ambassador in Germany, Anne-Marie Descotes, articulated in front of a highly interested circle in Berlin as the third great concern for the future of Europe, but can hardly go through as a coincidence. A lot to be said for a concerted action, born out of the concern, Yes, fear, the project of the century Europe could be with the elections to the European Parliament at the end of may for the victims of populists and nationalists.

Sigmar Gabriel has to be pointed out in the daily mirror that this passionate, and at first glance, lonely appeal Emmanuel Macrons took place a few weeks after the signing of the Aachen Treaty of the continuation of the historic Élysée Treaty and open the way for a joint German-French initiatives to pave.

Germany slows down, because it Is the-condition

It is estimated can, you can gear these French alone – it is already the third French European Initiative this year – suggest little else than a loud one ", Then without you!" In the direction of Germany, whose Chancellor has been overrun by the Insistence of Macrons obvious. Only in this way, the first reaction from government spokesman Steffen Seibert is to be interpreted. The said, it is a pleasure for the Federal government, that France was of the opinion that the European treaties would have to be changed where they proved to be.

The tendency to take the pace out of the debate on Europe, corresponds to the classical German and, above all, a Christian democratic Position, the French initiatives on the long-haul to starve, because the status quo has been for Germany for a long time as very convenient. This Urge is behind Macrons domestic and European political concern. If he is not in France with its path of Reform, if he can't convince the French that only a relaxation of the very rigid economic and social policy can save the country from economic relegation, it could be the next President is a woman. What could certainly be a progress, if it would be Marine Le Pen, which wants to control the country on a Europe-hostile, Neutra list and populist course.

no, Emmanuel Macron, has anxiety – not only his, but also to the future of Europe. Therefore, he warns in an almost desperate with the views of the United Kingdom. The Brexit he suggests as an example for this is that the EU failed to respond adequately "to the protection needs of the peoples in the face of the upheavals in the world today". And he complains of would not have told the British the truth about their future after the Brexit. He denounces the false claims of the nationalists, which would imply that the withdrawal from Europe, the rejection of the EU, as the identity of the bidder. No, his appeal: It is the European civilization that unites us.

reason is not in Europe at the Moment, just the economy

Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the reads a little differently: With the loss of reason, democracy is at the game, and the reason is not in Europe at the Moment, just the economy. He quoted Thomas Mann of the US-American exile, the voice of the "sentimental rawness", if behind the imposing mask of the mind of the German loyalty to the hide. And it is also believed to hear a Macron over the Brexit talk, if his Berlin colleague in Germany, announced a winner of globalisation, but deplored that there was, nevertheless, in Each of the many losers; if he urges that we "have to draw the social upheavals in human trajectories".

And then a Steinmeier-set, of which it was the wish comes, he may stand as a leitmotif through all the appeals, by the end of may number of this call for the EU to go to Parliament, and not left to the choice of law only to the populists: "The contempt of reason is a warning signal. Each people's Thinking prides itself with the demand for an 'end of talk' – that is, the termination of the Dialogue."

the presidents of both countries, given the rise of populist will find thematic movements in Europe, a common language, and diplomatic with you, is a good sign. And, perhaps, a sign of encouragement comes from the Chancellor. Until then, we are relying on the fact that at least the lines between the Elysee Palace and the Bellevue Palace to work.
