How do we see Europe?
An IN member recently quoted a FT article on Silvio Tremonti, the Italian Minister of Finance and Economics :
"Giulio Tremonti calls for a return to values centred on the family, a philosophy based on “Judaeo-Christian roots” and a clear European identity. “Europe has a confused identity because it is based on a globalised culture based on indiscriminate equality and free import of merchandise and then people,” he writes. “The confusion between us and them becomes suicidal in times of globalisation.”
And the IN member mentions that Tremonti identifies seven passwords to save Europe: values, family and identity, and authority, order, responsibility and federalism, adding :” He deplores the leftwing protest movements of Protected content he says killed authority and destroyed its symbols, and suggests identity-enhancing flag-raising ceremonies with European, national and regional flags. “It is small and simple things that count because they are the only ones that people really understand,” he writes".”
