(Has George Orwell's '1984' become reality?)
This Europe isn't MY Europe.
The EU is a precarious subject these days. Both backers and detractors are subject to harsh criticism, and those wanting to leave the EU are habitually considered populists or nationalists. However, this Europe, with its undeniable capitalist and neoliberal penchants, isn't MY Europe, or at least not the Europe I once pictured it to be. That is why, as it stands, I vehemently oppose the present shape of the European Union.
I am Peter Van Els, and I was born in 1957, and I live in The Netherlands in a small city called Sluis. I am an autodidact, Life is my biggest teacher and I started to write last year to stand up against lawless and corrupt governments after I’d said to myself “enough is enough”! I believe all good souls must stand up and try to connect and unite, and try to change the system for the benefit for Mother Earth and for our offspring.
