European Community

July 11th, 2013

The European Community signed in the Dutch city of Maastricht in December 1991, the Treaty on the European Union to preveyio by the end of the last century a complete economic and monetary union, a common foreign policy and the road to political integration. We have to recognize, by placing the hand over the heart, which Europe we admitted, that Yes!, as poor brothers in union of our poor men also poor brothers: Portuguese and Greeks. Our diplomatic authorities were not the sufficiently ambitious to learn to negotiate agreements and treaties which benefit, under formulas clear and decisive, political and economic interests beyond the seas. We are already poor men! Does under this climate, Spain, fully integrated in the global concert of Nations, held that must have been his great year 1992?. Commemoration of the V centenary of the Gesta of Christopher Columbus, the Universal exhibition in Seville and the European Cultural capital in Madrid. We are already rich men! However, these events may have been decisive for our European and global launches platform, but it is no less true that the atmosphere of political crisis and current concern regarding the State of the autonomies contrasts excessively with the spirit of the past ephemeris, which contributed to delayed awareness of austerity and realism that today lives the Spanish society. Incidentally step, internal problems, and thanks to God, we are faithfully informed with daily punctuality by all means of communication. If a man of State politician has done wrong it should rectify and recognize their mistakes, will not be the error becomes obligation, and by obligation to continue keeping their mistakes.

Spaniards are a people easy to govern, but it is clear that we have already reached our coming of age, and today, not we can deceive. The truth has to be one and clear, even though it is hard. There is an old poem by India, which says: If you have two pieces of bread, gives one to the poor: sells another and buy hyacinths to feed thy soul. This is the India of Gandhi (born in 1869 and was murdered in 1948), theoretical activist that change the thoughts of our twentieth century. In their dream and cherished nation, today, still exist: rich man, poor man! Many poor men. The Spanish village complies with little: A love, a friend, a good book, what does not take away the football! It is our daily bread. I think and reflect, what will I be?: rich man, poor man? Could it be that I am a poor man? La Coruna, October 30, 2006 * Mariano Cabrero Barcena is original author and source of the article
