Op Euronews werd vanochtend een wel heel gekleurd beeld geschetst over de politieke impasse waar schurkenstaat België in terecht is gekomen. Ik stuurde volgende lezersbrief:
(merk op dat het begrip schurkenstaat een overtolligheid in zich draagt)
Viewing your news item on Belgium this morning on the Cyprus Euronews broadcast, I could not help being outraged. You depicted the ‘battle’ of the ‘powerful Dutch representatives’ against the ‘stranded francophones’ as a form of wrongdoing, citing a francophone socialist saying it would be a ‘declaration of war’. By this you do not present a reliable view, even though your advertisement claims Euronews to be reliable. By the undertone of your message you prove you don’t know anything about Flemish history nor of the ‘realpolitik’ of modern day socialism/democratism – with democracy the Belgian state has nothing to do whatsoever.
The subduing of the Flemish people for centuries, ended in the sixties of last century by fixing permanently the borders of the land that belongs to it. The continuous and sneakingly conquering of Flemish soil by the francophones has to be halted and the splitting of the electoral district will not leave stranded francophones deprived of ‘candidates to choose form’, but force them to adjust to the laws and customs of the land they have chosen to live in. And may I remind you that this reflects nothing less than a basic right of nations upheld in international law.
The reality of the grounds of the battle on the francophone side is however that of socialism and thus of stealing. As every socialist’s creed goes, it is ok to steal money from your neighbour as long as you have the self declared legitimacy to do so – be it unjust inequality, deprivation of chances, consent by a majority of ’the people’ or any other nonsense. And so the francophone socialists think, believe, that billions of euros can justly be stolen from the Flemish to support their particracy and welfare statism.
No, dear Editor, the battle of the Flemish is not an unjust battle, it is a battle with a wrong goal. In stead of seeking to further defederalise or to split the country’s government, it should aim at abolishing the state altogether. Let virtue, success and self earned prosperity decide what language should be spoken where. If such would globally be the case, I predict that with the present mindset and attitude of the majority of francophones, the French language would quickly be eradicated.
