  • Globalizarea va continua – nu-ţi poţi imagina o întrerupere a transportului, de pildă. Dar „capitalul”, motorul globalizării vreme de decenii va fi sub un ochi critic. Poate va fi mai puţină avuţie, poate mai puţin câştig, dar va exista o coeziune socială mai puternică şi acest lucru va compensa. De la politicile de educaţie la politicile de sănătate, de la piaţa muncii şi atenţia faţă de angajat la felul în care capitalul se învârte şi produce bunăstare, trebuie să revedem judecăţile noastre din trecut.
  • Am mizat totul pe economie şi am neglijat societatea. Judecata viitoare trebuie să cuprindă larg, în analiza ei, acest aspect. Suntem într-o situaţie de criză. Dar este un vot de blam pentru guverne – pentru toate guvernele (din Occident – – să spui că ai fost luat pe nepregătite. Ne-am concentrat pe economie şi am uitat de societate (externalizând lanţurile vitale de aprovizionare – Trebuie să avem de azi înainte o reconstrucţie, inclusiv a pieţei interne a UE. Dacă ne-am fi concentrat mai mult pe societate, nu am fi trăit criza aceasta cu atâtea spaime.
  • UE s-a trezit în această criză că depinde prea mult în lanţurile de aprovizionare vitale de ţările din Asia. Dar „delocalizarea” a fost în bună măsură o sursă de prosperitate pentru Oc­cident. Acum această decizie începută cu de­cenii în urmă a transformat Europa în prizonier.

La Bruxelles, Parlamentul Global prinde contur – Dan Luca, 9.03.20

  • Atât partidele politice europene, cât şi structurile regionale precum ASEAN (un fel de Uniune Europeanã a Asiei) sau Uniunea Africanã, doresc lansarea unui proiect ambiţios pentru a impica cetãţenii în reprezentatea mondialã. Partidele politice europene, cu o istorie deja bine conturatã, pot sã fie factorii de coagulare spre ″societatea internaţionalã″. ″Partidele politice sunt în permanent contact cu cetãţenii, iar cu ajutorul acestora putem mai uşor sã trecem de la legalitate la legitimitate″, preciza prof. Vasile Puşcaş, prezent la dezbatere. (…)
  • Dimensiunea parlamentarã a structurii globale se contureazã clar, complementar cu actuala structurã a Naţiunilor Unite. În termeni europeni, actuala Adunare Generală a ONU este echivalentã Consiliului UE, iar un Parlament Global se poate inspira din construcţia treptatã a Parlamentului European, forumul care reprezintã interesele cetãţenilor.
