Dear World, but especially dear EU:

It’s been 70 years since the D-Day. And yet the re-emergence of the ideologies the Allies defeated in the WWII has never been so frightening as now. Though many votes on those kind of parties were the so-called “protest votes”, there were also some who voted because they agree with their ideology.

We need to stop sticking our heads in the sand, to stop being so narrow-minded in our vision and conception of Europe that thinks no evil can happen if we follow our own route. We need to be able to listen to different visions, or else people will follow the route of desperation and turn to extreme movements and parties.

It’s been 70 years. 70 years can seem a lot, yet on the great scheme of things it was just yesterday. Please don’t forget. Never forget.

 

“No thoughts had I of anything,
Or at least that’s what I thought;
I even thought I couldn’t think,
But now I think I never thought.”
