European Peace Project


Objective

Our new Europe - with and for us citizens throughout Europe!

 

1.   diverse, democratic, constantly evolving, flexible Europe, open to the world, in which we citizens determine, in referenda, the European issues we want to resolve ourselves in referenda: e.g. our country's role in Europe, a new Constitution, the entry of new member countries (Turkey, Ukraine, Belarus, Balkans...), the euro/European taxes, immigration, climate, Corona and the war in Ukraine.

 

2.   A prosperous, strong, subsidiary and free Europe from Vladivostok to Reykjavik, in which all European countries live and cooperate in peace, freedom and to the benefit of all - according to our will.

 

3.   A Europe that takes us seriously as its sovereign, responsible, empowered citizens and as convinced, emancipated, critical Europeans - since we have the last word in our new Europe with the ballot sheet! 

 

 

1. "Never Waste a Good Crisis!"

 

In our Europe, crises - especially the war in Ukraine, Corona and climate change - are used as chances to resolve conflicts and to strengthen democracy, the rights of the citizens and a peaceful, prosperous cooperation that will serve all European countries - by means of referenda:

  1. The refugee crisis will finally be successfully and sustainably overcome with a humanitarian, common, flexible European asylum and refugee policy. A new Refugee Union of like-minded European countries and voluntary agreements with the rest of Europe are intended to strengthen border protection and to reduce the influx of refugees and asylum seekers, thanks, in particular, to effective measures to promote the economic development in the countries of origin and of transit of the refugees.

  2. The euro crisis is leading to a close Economic, monetary and fiscal union (EMU), incl. the euro, a European economic government and common taxes in the member countries willing to integrate. All other European countries (incl. Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Turkey, Great Britain, Switzerland, etc.) are invited to join the European free trade area or the common market/economic area (EEA - with the free movement of goods, services and capital, but without the free movement of people and without the euro). The resulting diverse and, depending on the country, more or less extensive economic cooperation and free trade will bring prosperity, stability and peace to the entire continent!

  3. Experience with the Corona pandemic shows that, in order to combat future pandemics more effectively and more successfully, every country must prepare without delay the necessary national emergency laws and flexible, efficient measures that are adapted to local and national circumstances, supported by the citizens and approved in referenda, as well as an experienced and well-trained national crisis organization that can be deployed at short notice at any time. - In addition, an effective international cooperation requires at the European level an unbureaucratic, readily available and flexible support, and in the UNO/WHO an efficient, independent global pandemic monitoring and alarm system.

  4. In order to prevent the climate apocalypse announced by Greta Thunberg and the climate youth, Europe must go ahead with the most effective global climate program: In the "Citizens' Climate Alliance", all Europeans can, united with all willing citizens worldwide, as consumers and citizens at all levels of government (municipality, region, nation, UNO) commit themselves to create an efficient, globally sustainable climate protection program, including, specifically, a "climate cent" of willing countries on fossil fuels to finance the most effective climate protection measures, particularly in the poorest parts of the world, and to enhance climate-friendly international cooperation, incl. emission certificates, as well as an independent global UN climate monitoring.

  5. Concerning the war in Ukraine, the West's strategy of confrontation with Russia (NATO rearmament and eastward expansion, weapons and military support of Ukraine and ever more sanctions against Russia) is not likely to lead to a fast unconditional surrender of Russia, as the West's large majority is hoping. There is rather a growing risk of an endless war of attrition and a new Cold War, cаusing every day new victims on both sides, a catastrophic global economic crisis and finally, in the worst case, a nuclear word war!

    Crucial to a quick end to the war is a face-saving compromise acceptable to both sides (e.g. Russia as of 2/23/2022 before beginning the war and a neutral, confederal Ukraine) - a compromise that allows both countries, according to the will of their citizens, to live and work together peacefully with all European countries and peoples to their mutual benefit in the Common European House!


2. A Democratic Constitution

The present Constitution is based on the Swiss Federal Constitution and provides the legal basis for our European peace project, i.e. for: 

  • A new, diverse, democratic, confederal, subsidiary, sustainably prosperous Europe, that is open to all European countries and - respectful of their very different historical experiences, allows them to maintain their political institutions, cultures, customs and languages;
    xxx
  • An armed, neutral Europe, which - to protect its security and independence, to prevent wars, and to strengthen peace in the world - has its own strong, purely defensive army of willing countries, whose sole purpose is to deter any potential attacker from attacking;
     xxx
  • A direct-democratic Europe, in which citizens have the last word in referenda on all important European issues, e.g. concerning their country's place in Europe, the accession of new member countries, the euro, refugees, climate change, Corona and the war in Ukraine;
     xxx
  • A Europe to be created democratically, whose citizens elect their country's members to the Constitutional Council, ratify the Constitution in a national referendum and finally implement it by means of regular referenda.

The Constitution of our new Europe is short, concise and easily understandable for us citizens throughout Europe - as Europe's Sovereign - (16 pages, 21 §)*.

___________________

*) All details have to be regulated at the level of laws and ordinances.

 

 

 

3. Referenda - the Citizen's Sword of Damocles!

 

There is no true democracy without mutual trust between the State and its citizens - and there is no better way to create and reinforce such a trust than referenda - since:
 

Nothing strengthens democracy, peace and freedom and the commitment of us citizens throughout Europe for our new Europe, our sense of belonging together and our democratic responsibility, as well as our certainty to be taken seriously by our new Europe, like regular constitutionally determined referenda, in which (after broad and open, instructive campaigns) we citizens across Europe can decide freely on all essential European issues!*

 

On the other hand, nothing frustrates, offends and hurts us citizens more than politicians who ignore, disregard, reject, launch - or misuse referenda for their own purposes and careers, or even ask to repeat them until they like the results! - As it happens time and again also in Europe! 
_____________

*) In Switzerland, referend have been held regularly at federal level since 1848 (today usually 4 times a year on several issues on the same day)! 

 

 

 Referenda turning Patronized Subjects into Responsible Citizens 

- and plutocrats, bureaucrats, autocrats, eurocrats into servants of the people!  

  • We empowered citizens are taken seriously by Europe, because we can decide by referendum all the important questions in Europe (and, according to nation law, possibly also at national level

  • The politicians elected by us are implementing, together with us citizens, our new Europe, the Europe of and for us citizens - under our always threatening sword of Damocles referenda!

  • By means of referenda, we citizens first define our country's role in Europe and then create our diverse, democratic prospering new Europe of peacefully cooperating sovereign nations!

 

 

4. The New Era: Peace, Liberty and Democracy!

We citizens across Europe shall seize power in Europe with our sword of Damocles referenda! We will turn our politicians into loyal servants of the people, crises (climate change, Covid, refugee fiasco...) into opportunities, "swords into ploughshares", and the war in Europe into our Common house of peace, freedom and democracy, in which we shall solve problems no longer with weapons, but with the ballot paper! - We are creating a new era, a new Europe of the citizens - with new politicians and empowered, sovereign, convinced Europeans! 

 

I.  A New Europe in 10 years!

 

Our New Europe - Roadmap

 I. Ukraine/Corona/climate reset for a new, diverse, democratic Europe in the 21st century

  • 2023/24 - Citizens' Revolt on www.our-new-europe.eu: Millions of citizens across Europe, incl. Russia & Ukraine, ask for mutually beneficial cooperation, bringing democracy, prosperity and peace to all countries and peoples!
  • 2024/25 - Turn of an era: The politicians elected in the next European elections will go down in history as the founders of our Peace Project, global beacon for democracy, peace, freedom, prosperity, human rights

II. Takeover of power with referenda - bottom-up - throughout Europe

  • 2025 - First Pan-European Referendum: What role shall your country play in our new Europe:
    • In the politically integrated top-down core Europe to join the common European economic, foreign and security
      policy and - by means of a referendum - the purely dissuasive army of willing nations, that will deter any aggressor!
    • In the European Free Trade Area to cooperate with all nations throughout Europe and throughout the world! -
      Nationally independent! - Under my far-sighted Government's determined leadership! – Like Great Britain after Brexit!
    • In the European common market, incl. the free movement of goods & services (but not people)! - To cooperate in peace and to the mutual benefit in many areas! - Permanent political independence and voluntary association!
  • 2026/31 - Constitution: National elections of the Constitutional Council (2026) - Ratification by national referenda (2030/31)!
  • 2032/... - Regular adjustments with the ballot sheet: legislative referenda and constitutional initiatives - forever!

 

II.  The Democracy Virus conquering Europe!

 

In order to realize our peace project within 10 years (!), we, millions of citizens across Europe, must take power and responsibility in Europe with a viral pan-European democracy pandemic and force our politicians to cooperate. - For this we need:

  • A fundamental reorganization and decentralization, i.e. a powerful marketing organization that mobilizes millions of citizens for our new Europe with a huge country campaign in each of the 51 participating countries.

  • A CEO* with good knowledge of the country and language, who leads the campaign for our new Europe in his country, also in Russia and Ukraine - and who wins partner organizations and networks with the same or similar goals, willing to commit themselves to using their channels to promote our new Europe!

  • Exponential growth thanks to the snowball effect**: The detailed results (number of votes per country on all 11 questions) and a ranking list with all 51 countries (number of petition signatures per million inhabitants) are published in real time and must be disseminated by the media in all European countries, making it a major issue of discussion throughout Europe! - The democracy virus cannot be stopped!**

____________
*) e.g.: Voluntary, enthusiastic "Seniors for our new Europe" who are willing to give their time for peace, freedom and democracy in Europe.

**) If each voter wins 2 friends, there will be 1,000 votes after 10 days, 500,000 after 19 d., 1 million after 20 d., 133 million votes after 27 d.!

 

 

III.  E-direct Democratically to e-direct Democracy!

 

The platform www.our-new-europe.eu gives us citizens throughout Europe the possibility to launch direct digital democracy (e-referenda, e-initiatives, e-voting) at European level. As a result, for the first time ever, all citizens on an entire continent can today:

  • Sign a petition for our new Europe;
  • Communicate and consult digitally across all borders;
  • Express their opinion on all important issues in Europe: e.g. on new member countries,
    the European Constitution, Corona, climate change, the war in Ukraine, refugees and the euro,..;
  • Multiple-choice voting online instead of, as so far, "by hand", with yes/no answers only;
  • Build and adapt, whenever needed, our new Europe - direct-democratically with the digital ballot paper!

 

 

We citizens are called upon to emancipate ourselves at long last!

The fate of Europe is in our hands! - We alone can and must do it!

Together, peacefully, with the ballot sheet, bottom-up!

Don't give up! - Trust!
