L’Unione Europea ha 27 paesi membri. I paesi membri dell’euro, 17 e così via.
Esiste dunque un Europa a geometria variabile.
L’Europa ” militare” per così dire, è rappresentata dalla NATO che include anche gli Stati Uniti .
L’aver dato il premio Nobel alla Unione Europea mentre quasi tutti gli Stati che la compongono hanno dei corpi di spedizione ( tranne la Spagna ) inviati a guerreggiare – ma non la chiamano guerra – da qualche parte, equivale a dare il premio per l’eleganza a una ballerina di Strip-tease che passa la maggior parte del tempo nuda.
In questo tempio dell'ipocrisia c'è di tutto, tranne gente priva di sangue sulle proprie mani.
In coda, troverete l'elenco dei laureati col Nobel tranne Henry Dunant che fu il primo , ma che il "mio copia e incolla" si è ostinatamente rifiutato di accettare…
Noto, pur non essendo un fan del Vaticano o della Confederazione Svizzera ( che non partecipa a una guerra da cinquecento anni) che la Chiesa Cattolica nelle persone di almeno uno dei Papi, avrebbero potuto essere premiati o almeno ragionevolmente candidati.
Hanno premiato il Dalai Lama .
Hanno premiato noti assassini come Begin e Saadat e persino l'unico italiano premiato – Francesco Moneta da Sanremo – era stato un volontario garibaldino. (Ci sono morti anche nelle ottime cause…)
Mah, divertitevi con l'elenco ( ci sono quattro presidenti USA, tra cui Teodoro Roosevelt!!!) e cominciamo a considerare questo premio come la valvola di sfogo della cultura protestante nel mondo, dato che , poverini, non hanno l'istituto della confessione come i cattolici e trovano che gli psicologi siano troppo costosi.
Non gli resta che l'ipocrisia.
