The creation of the EU has at least been able to maintain one of the many decisions – to preserve peace and unity in the EU country’s diverse cultures and across ethnic differences.
One of the countries that have applied for membership in the EU community is Turkey and it is long since the country started with the first application. The EU has time and again refused Turkey as being a valid member country of the EU and all, that have followed the news the past few days will understand why Turkey can not live up to the democratic rules of the game, which among many other things are based on freedom in a democratic legal system.
This is not new, but the Turkish leaders have for years closed their eyes to both the human rights and religious conditional statements as being the foundation of political life and the well-known hand fixed Islamic laws.
And the flames continues to burn in Turkey’s neighboring country of Syria, while Tunisia, Egypt, Iraq, Libya with more still has many violent clashes with others from the fanaticism’s religious medieval leftovers. It is more than miracles that perhaps can resolve disputes on the basis of religious conservative attitudes, and with just a little knowledge of the Arab mentality, no leaders to give up their power before they may be killed.
It’s actually only France, on the other side of the Mediterranean’s coastline that has both experience and military superiority if it becomes necessary to add forces in the struggle for peace and justice in this otherwise great territory ‘.
Just the French efforts in several North African countries has been a stabilizing factor over the last several years, but no one knows for sure how long the financial resources will continue to hold these war high costs up without losing on the home front.
Under these circumstances, it is worth noting that although the greater part of people are not affected by these many conflicts – well, then you will in the long run get involved indirectly or directly.
The European Revolutions of 1848, known in some countries as the Spring of Nations, Springtime of the People or the Year of Revolution, were a series of political upheavals throughout Europe in 1848. It remains the most widespread revolutionary wave in European history, but within a year, reactionary forces had regained control, and the revolutions collapsed.
Five factors were involved: widespread dissatisfaction with political leadership; demands for more participation in government and democracy; the demands of the working classes; the upsurge of nationalism; and finally, the regrouping of the reactionary forces based on the royalty, the aristocracy, the army, and the peasants.
The uprisings were led by shaky ad hoc coalitions of reformers, the middle classes and workers, which did not hold together for long. Tens of thousands of people were killed, and many more forced into exile. The only significant lasting reforms were the abolition of serfdom in Austria and Hungary, the end of absolute monarchy in Denmark, and the definitive end of the Capetian monarchy in France. The revolutions were most important in France, Germany, Poland, Italy, and the Austrian Empire, and did not reach Russia, Great Britain, Spain, Sweden, Portugal, or the Ottoman Empire.
