Even a committed European must admit there is something rotten in the Union of Europe today: our utterly defensive attitude to change. Contemporary European discourse is overly dominated by the limits and borders of Europe as if the whole world were against us. Seldom has this kind of ostrich attitude carried the day. Instead, for centuries, greater economic and intellectual openness has been central to human development. It has been one of Europe's fundamental strenghts since the Age of Enlightenment. Instead of limits and borders,couldnt we Europeans think in terms of the next frontiers?
Borders are restrictive, limit our minds, constrain actions, and reduce our influence. Frontiers free our minds,stimulate action,and increase our influence.Why don't we take the bull by the horns and tackle the challenges with well-grounded self-confidence?
