  • La Commissione Europea non poteva non cogliere la straordinaria importanza – non solo simbolica – di quest’evento.
    Ormai è sotto gli occhi di tutti la certezza che il pianeta Terra non può più vivere così frantumato, né sul piano economico né su quello politico.
    Ma soltanto la cultura dell’unità – nata in ambiente ebraico ed europeo (Grecia e Roma) e sviluppatasi nei secoli – può portare al mondo quella comunione nella distinzione “trinitaria”, di cui l’intera umanità e la sua stessa casa terrena necessitano: ormai anche solo per sopravvivere!
    Penso che anche il Parlamento Europeo dovrebbe mettere in agenda, come primissimo impegno in ordine d’importanza, non solo la pienissima integrazione europea – dall’Atlantico agli Urali! -, ma anche ogni iniziativa utile a costruire al più presto un Mondo Unito in un’unica grande Democrazia, in cui ogni cultura, etnia, religione, e sani pensieri creativi siano ascoltati e valorizzati al massimo. Sconfiggendo definitivamente la guerra la fame e l’inquinamento ambientale e – per quanto possibile, data la nostra fragilità – la corruzione morale.
