European Solidarity is not free
Jun 21st, 2011
Friedhelm Hengsbach SJ, June 2011
The European Union is beside itself – not with excitement but with worry, and because of unrest and feelings of helplessness. Many people doubt whether financial and political elites are equipped to deal with the financial and debt crises European countries face, or indeed whether the existing capitalist system can be justifiably used to tackle these crises simply because it was successful on the level of systemic competition.
The lecture was held in Tervueren on 21st June 2011 at a joint public event of the German Political Foundations.
