well, not exactly...
i see it as a snapshot in history, a distillation of centuries of recorded social engineering, from the first tribal groupings on to ....what?
it's 'just' a one point in a long journey, and compared to some of the horrendous social situations the masses of europe have endured over the centuries, the last 50 years have been a kind period indeed.
compared to what some of us envision and express our desire for here at ET, we have barely begun.
so i don't see it as cynically as some, though it certainly is tempting, lol, when you see some of the leaders.
on the whole i resonate most with in this thread is in wales' plea for a presentation of an historical document of great significance to be in language normal people don't need a lawyer to explain-
in this day and age i think a worldwide wiki on the composition, details, and possible ramifications would have been much more likely to produce something 'everyman/woman' could understand.
we've come a long way, baby, and we've still got so very far to go...
i'll raise a glass to that, if that makes you full of joy, louis, i'm happy too!
we have many blessings here in europe, and many things about which we can truly be proud...
