Our New Europe!

1. A democratic revolution!

 

The Brexit, the euro and the refugee crisеs, as well as the growing number of EU-critical citizens in many countries have pushed the EU to the brink of collapse.

 

With its intransigent adherence to an allegedly ever closer, centralized Union, without any alternative, the EU risks to fail definitely.

A rescue "from above" can hardly be expected. The creation of a new, diverse, democratic Europe requires a revolution with millions of dedicated, corageous and perseverant citizens, beginning with a "revolt" on the Internet, i.e. an avalanche of votes and a strong, unequivocal petition, supported massively throughout Europe, so that politicians have no choice but to fundamentally renew Europe, bottom up, according to the scenario EU*:

2. Crises - opportunities!

2.1 Brexit

The Brexit negociations shall be conducted in an open, contructive spirit, leading to mutually beneficial solutions.

 

Brexit shall contribute to a prosperous, democratic and diverse new Europe, where all countries, including the United Kingdom, can occupy the place determined by its citizens, e.g. also  in the Common Market or the vast European Free Trade Zone.

 

2.2 Refugees

A European Refugee Union consisting of like-minded European countries, reinforced by voluntary agreements with other European countries and with countries of origin and of transit of the refugees, will be the basis for an effective, democratic common European refugee policy, which shall respect the needs and the potentials both of all European countries and of the refugees.

 


2.3 Euro

A close Economic, Fiscal and Monetary Union, led by an economic government - including transfer payments and revenue sharing as well as criteria for membership, accession and withdrawal – shall stabilize, legitimize and legally support the Euro.

 

Countries that do not want to join the Union, shall have the possibility to participate at the European Common Market or a European Free Trade Zone. Economic cooperation and free trade will bring prosperity and stability to our continent.

 

2.4 Ukraine and Russia

A common Foreign, Security and Defence Policy of willing countries shall strengthen Europe's role on a global level.

 

The conflict in the Ukraine shall be settled with the help of Russia and the US. The Crimeans shall be given the opportunity to vote in an internationally controlled referendum, on their belonging to Russia or to the Ukraine. The Ukrainians shall vote on their country's future, for instance as a neutral, federal (decentralized) state, serving as a bridge between East and West, in a large European free trade zone from Reykjavik to Valdivostok.


3. A new Constitution

Our new, diverse, democratic Europe can only come into being democratically - with us citizens. It has to be based on a new Constitution. This Constitution will be deliberated and adopted by a Constitutional Council, elected by us citizens in all participating countries; we shall then ratify it and put it into force in a referendum.

 

The Constitution will be the basis for direct democracy in a flexible and subsidiary Community of European States (CES) with variable geometry, including a politically integrated  Economic, Fiscal and Monetary Union, an effective, efficient and humanitarian European Refugee Union and a common European Foreign, Security and Defence Policy of the willing countries.

Constitution for a new Europe - Preamble

“We the citizens adopt the following Constitution of a democratic and diverse, strong and peace-making, free, fair and prosperous Community of European States (CES), open to all European countries.”  


4. Conclusion

4.1 Sovereign, dedicated and convinced Europeans

Referenda require dedicated, sovereign, responsible citizens as well as a Europe that trusts its citizens - because:

(1) Nothing frustrates the citizens more than politicians, who ignore, violate, reject or simply misuse referenda for their own purposes.  

 

(2) Nothing will arouse the citizens' interest in Europe better than a binding referendum in all European countries on the future of Europe.

(3) Nothing will strengthen the Europeans' sense of solidarity, their democratic competences and feeling to be taken seriously by Brussels more effectively than constitutionally defined referenda on all key European issues.

 

(4) Nothing can promote the citizens' enthusiasm and commitment to Europe better, than regular, open, fair referendum campaigns on Europe! 


4.2 A diverse, democratic, strong Europe

We citizens create our new Europe with referenda :

 

(1) A Europe, in which all European countries, peoples and cultures live together and cooperate in peace, freedom and prosperity;

(2) A Europe which will assume an exemplary political, economic and peace-keeping role on a global level;


(3) A Europe with democratically fully responsible, convinced, and proud Europeans.
