Macron's European Union 'renaissance' seeks to halt populist wave

  • 'Brexit is the symbol of Europe's crisis': Macron outlines vision for EU's future

Publishing an open letter in European media outlets on Monday, Macron said that Europe was in danger and that Brexit, the U.K.'s departure from the EU due to take place on March 29, symbolized a "retreat into nationalism".

Mr Macron suggested that a "European security council working with the United Kingdom" could help Europe to make "joint decisions" when it comes to defence and border protection.

"Europe, where social security was created, needs to introduce a social shield for all workers", Macron wrote, "guaranteeing the same pay for the same work, and an European Union minimum wage, appropriate to each country, and negotiated collectively every year".

Macron's address came less than a month from the UK's anticipated exit from the EU and three months ahead of the European elections that some observers believed threatened to bring to power populist forces who supported nationalist agendas such as Brexit.

"We can not wait for the renaissance of Europe - the renaissance of Europe must start now".

"Macron is all alone on the European stage". And he called for several improvements to help avoid a repetition, including harsher penalties for companies that fail to meet the EU's standards, and new European Union climate and environmental targets.

The modern EU began as a simple trade deal among six European nations, but over the years it has evolved to its present Big Government behemoth. He calls for "stringent border controls", as well as "a common border force and a European asylum office, strict control obligations and European solidarity to which each country will contribute under the authority of a European Council for Internal Security".

I propose creating a European Agency for the Protection of Democracies, which will provide each member state with European experts to protect their election processes against cyber-attacks and manipulation.

The President added that the subject of Brexit was "at an impasse", and said that France and Europe would never "shut the door on the British". Criticising his self-identity as a European leader first and French second, Morano said: "This is Macronism - France has to disappear into this European federalism".

Macron also advocates a protectionist policy, proposing "the adoption of European preference in strategic industries and our public procurement, as our American and Chinese competitors do".

The French opposition criticized Macron's tribune on Tuesday. When then-U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher warned years ago that the growing European superstate threatened Britain's national sovereignty, the globalists in her own country swiftly removed her. Globalists such as Emmanuel Macron do not like anyone who stands in the way of their plans of global integration.
