Internal European Parliament Survey

What do you think of human being?
  • It is others who make life worth living?
  • We are worth what our values are worth?
  • Our selfish and our altruistic instincts even each other out?
  • We dare not be kind for fear of appearing weak ?
  • Man is to man a wolf?
  • No man is entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent?

I kid you not. Now you must remember that the Parliament has hundreds of native Englsih speakers, plus phalanxes of professional translaters and what not.

Doe it suprise you in the light of this that the legislation is so dire?

Yes, that is presumably what they mean.

The sentiment is rubbish, however, because it is demonstrably untrue.

Hi: E-Votes for Europeans are possible: "http://www.we-change-europe.eu"
The EU does not give its citizens a voice. The Europe needs Initiative association recognizes this as a threat to the Union's future. “We Change Europe” are convinced that it is time to take initiative and to invigorate the concept of a European Citizens' Democracy.

"We Change Europe" wants to offer the opportunity of getting involved into the process of political decisions made in the EU. Therefore they created an E-Voting tool and the possibility to promote political aims in form of paneuropean initiatives.

Topics, you can vote for:
The Europeans are enlarging their Union.
The Europeans elect their President.
