If you are state blind, you do not see that state power is about right and wrong. State blindness is a special case of moral blindness. A moral blind person cannot see that any choice has a moral dimension. It is difficult to discuss paintings with a colour blind person - and to discuss politics with a state blind person.

"French EU Presidency endorses plan for University of Europe in Strasbourg"
The Sunday Express reported that the French EU Presidency is planning to create a University of Europe, based in Strasbourg and funded by the taxpayer, for people wanting to understand the "history of Europe and the European spirit." On Friday Agence Europe reported that the French government was planning to endorse the project, which was drawn up by the French Foundation for Political Innovation in a working paper.

The paper says the idea is to create a place for the "study and appreciation of the spirit and values of a united Europe", which would be run by the European Commission. According to the paper plans for the University are already underway: "In late March 2008 in the lead-up to France's assumption of the European Union presidency from 1 July 2008, a group of academics, together with representatives of the French and international governments, and members of the European Parliament gathered at the Fondation pour l'Innovation Politique in Paris to discuss options for the creation of a University of Europe."

Source: Open Europe 21 July, 2008.

In 1668 the Swedish kingdom created a university in Lund, ten years after this for long time Danish territory had become Swedish after a short war. The aim was to make this land more Swedish-minded.

History repeats itself.

"Katten Frasse får nytt uppdrag?"
Svaret - efter en kattomröstning - ges i min julikrönika (Se Articles July 2008).

Men före dess har elake Måns sagt ifrån: "Nu tiger ni, för nu ska vi alla tala med en röst!"

"Almedalen 2008: Tänk på vad ni säger, Alliansen!"
Ja, det är titeln på en liten men synnerligen angelägen skrift:

- Vad betyder det när en försäljning kallas ”utförsäljning” eller när en skattefinansierad tjänst kallas ”gratis”? Varför anses ofta rättvisa innebära att alla ska får lika snarare än att den som gör mest får mest?

- Makten över språket är i hög grad också makt över tanken. I sin tur kan den makten avgöra mycket av samhällsutvecklingen, för den anger vad som är politiskt möjligt.

I den nya publikationen Tänk på vad ni säger, Alliansen! analyserar Maria Eriksson och Fredrik Segerfeldt det politiska språket. De utgår från de senaste tillgängliga talen i Almedalen från de sju riksdagspartierna.

Slutsatsen är att vänstern i hög grad har makten över viktiga begrepp som jämlikhet, rättvisa och välfärd. Även borgerliga företrädare utgår ofta från vänsterns definitioner när de använder begreppen.

Författarna delar inte vänsterns uppfattning om vad dessa centrala begrepp borde stå för. De anser att inte heller Alliansens företrädare borde göra det och uppmanar dem därför att tänka på vad de säger.

In any case, Polish and German People would have declined it, too, had it only been a referendum in each country.
