“If the construction of a superstate takes place, we will function in a system of slavery” – Prof. Zbigniew Krysiak, chairman of the Program Council of the Institute of Schuman’s Thought, said during the debate “The risk of bankruptcy of Europe without Robert Schuman”, which took place at Agere Contra in Warsaw. The economist emphasized that “Spinelli’s ideology is a thousand times worse than the Soviet Union”.
“Schuman spoke about the community of European nations. Some people say ‘Schuman laid the foundations for the European Union’. Absolutely not. Schuman did not create the foundations for the European Union. Schuman built the community of European nations” – Prof. Krysiak recalled emphasizing that “Spinelli’s ideology is a thousand times worse than the Soviet Union”.
“In 1992, the Maastricht Treaty was created, where the name of the European Economic Community was changed to the European Union. The idea was to slowly remove this community idea and introduce a uniform, i.e. move towards a superstate” – he referred to history.
“When we read the Treaty of Maastricht or the Treaty of Amsterdam (1997), there are already such connotations, provisions that precisely introduce the mentality or directly show the building of a dehumanized society. The Treaty of Maastricht contains provisions that already constitute a message about destroying the family, introducing some ‘wildness’ introduced by gender ideology” – he added, pointing out that “this plan was, in some foundations, prepared by Spinelli’s ideology”. “Spinelli’s ideology is an ideology of introducing chaos. The more chaos, the weaker the intellect, the weaker the moral forces, the greater the reduction of logical thinking” – he noted and added: “Almost 12 years before Poland’s accession to the European Union, a framework was prepared that would later include such countries as Poland. We see the fury of the Germans who would like this process to be faster”.
When asked whether we should reform the EU from the inside or whether we should forget about the creation we have and start building it from scratch, prof. Krysiak noted: “The institutional arrangement in Brussels, or in the European Union in general, where there is no democratic procedure for electing, for example, Mrs. Ursula von der Leyen, is reminiscent of the Soviet Union, where before the death of each dignitary, there was an agreement as to the positions to hold. That is, no democratic procedures governed and we see exactly this similarity today. Schuman said that this community cannot be based on a superstate, because a superstate destroys the community, destroys diversity, destroys identity, destroys the entire color scheme of individual nations and therefore these steps towards building a community they were supposed to have certain institutions, but not ultimately, but temporarily”. The economist explained that “transitional organizational forms were supposed to perform specific tasks and functions, and then their functioning was to expire”. He noted that Schuman emphasized that in a community the most important thing is to build relationships, then they will be strong and lasting. This relationship is to be reflected into solidarity.
“Germany is a country that, unfortunately, is constantly building its position on capital domination. Their thinking goes back to the mentality of Germany in the fascist times of Hitler. This German mentality has survived. It has not undergone therapy. The Germans of World War II as compulsive murderers – just like we have alcoholics, drug addicts – they have not undergone therapy. Their addiction is capital violence, i.e. domination” – Prof. Krysiak diagnosed the situation. In this context, he pointed out, the issue of compensation is crucial. “If it does not happen, there will be no peace in Europe. Those who will cause further friction, even military ones, will be Germany” – he said.
Referring to the need to take remedial measures, the chairman of the Program Council of the Institute of Schuman’s Thouht noted that “in order to have an impact, you need to have a specific philosophy. Of course, it is all based on Christian values, but Schuman used the appropriate method and appropriate tools”. “In this method, an important issue was integrating people of good will. Schuman relied on people of good will. This is a necessity” – he assessed.
He warned that if the construction of a superstate takes place, we will function in a system of slavery, which in Spinelli’s ideology is a thousand times worse system than Soviet communism, because in Soviet communism there was an ideology with physical violence, prisons, but there were two sides there. “Everyone knew who was on one side of the barricade and who was on the other, even if those on the right side could not always speak freely” – he stated.
He pointed out that when Poland joined the EU, there was a large asymmetry between its economy and the economies of other member states. “Schuman’s goal was for convergence to occur. We observe that this is not happening” – he noted. He emphasized that experts agree that in the EU economic model such equalization of the potentials of the economies of individual nations will not be possible. “The pursuit of a superstate and Spinelli’s ideology, which largely guides groups of leaders in Germany, the Netherlands and France, leads to deterioration of economic efficiency. Also, if we look at the EU economic model, it is less and less competitive compared to other areas in the world” – he said.
“It is hardly surprising that the European economy is becoming less and less competitive, considering the goals pursued by the supporters of Spinelli’s ideology. These goals were very precisely defined in the Ventotene Manifesto. These include the abolition of private property and the central redistribution of goods. This is what is happening, for example by imposing ‘green levies’, including the speculative ETS tax. The Ventotene Manifesto was formulated in 1941, at a time when World War II was still going on and there were no such technical possibilities as they are now. Currently, it is being introduced non-cash transactions. There is an attempt to eliminate money as cash. What will be the economic model they want to impose on us at this point and what economic mechanisms will they use? – the journalist of “Schuman Optics Magazine” asked.
“Paradoxically, this is a differentiation, this group of 4-5 percent of the population has everything. They do not care about this model working positively for the rest, because they have full power. Just like the communist authorities, they wanted to consolidate power and did not analyze the well-being or sense of well-being or needs. People were tools. It’s basically similar in this ideology” – Prof. Krysiak explained.
He added that, for example, in Germany, German capital shows solidarity with international capital, not with citizens, which is a destructive process that begins to disintegrate this economy. “There is therefore no thinking about a good, reasonable, logical economic model. The lust for power will end in the destruction of those who reach for it” – he concluded. “If there are no mechanisms to stop this process, it will lead to destruction. That’s why we titled this meeting that without Schuman, there will be destruction” – he noted. “Blindness, capital as god, causes a blockage of logical thinking. Today we observe a massive blockage of logical thinking in the world” – he emphasized. He pointed out that the perspective of owners of large capital is short-term, while Schuman’s thought has a long-term perspective, covering subsequent generations.
Prof. Zbigniew Krysiak encouraged the construction of schools of social and political service in the Schuman model, so that the school of social and political service would build a community. “The idea is that those who graduate from this school do not end relationships, like a religious order. This formation will directly result in the fact that these people will act, serve in a specific mission and will feel obliged to be in this mission until end of life” – he clarified. He also drew attention to the need to introduce the social teachings of the Church as a compulsory subject at universities. “Schuman built on this. It was fruitful” – he emphasized.
