Reform #5: Armed forces

Ferenc Gräff |

Introduction The united and strong Europe – reformed along the principles introduced previously (see Enlightened Europism) – is going to be able to defend and promote its achievements globally only through a wise and decisive foreign policy with clear strategic aims. However, in my view, the necessary precondition of a successful foreign policy and diplomacy […]

Reform #4: State

Ferenc Gräff |

Introduction The reforms previously introduced aimed to construct a solid political and fiscal union upon enlightened ideological foundations (see Enlightened Europism), creating strong frames for the Republic of the United Europe (or RUE) to introduce a fair and just social system by redefining the role and authority of the state. The capitalist state – mainly […]

Reform #3: Finance and economy (vol. 2) – Economy

Ferenc Gräff |

Introduction As previously discussed, the reformation of the united Europe’s finance and economy must start with establishing a fiscal union within the political union of the member states (see Reform #3 vol. 1). After the financial and political preconditions are fulfilled, the leaders of the Republic of the United Europe (or RUE) are going to […]

Reform #3: Finance and economy (vol. 1) – Finance

Ferenc Gräff |

Introduction As previously discussed (see Reform #2), the reformation of the united Europe’s political system is the precondition of introducing further reforms related to Republic of the United Europe’s (or RUE) finance, economy, social system, armed forces, and foreign policy. In this volume, I am going to focus on the most critical topics related to […]

Reform #2: Political system (vol. 5) – Overview

[…]

Reform #2: Political system (vol. 3) – European Government

Ferenc Gräff |

Introduction In my previous articles, I introduced my ideas on reforming the European electoral system (see Reform #2 vol. 1) and the European Parliament (or EP, see Reform #2 vol. 2) as the first steps of the reformation of the European political system. As previously discussed, pan-Europarties are going to be elected to the EP, […]

Reform #2: Political system (vol. 2) – European Parliament

Ferenc Gräff |

Introduction As discussed in my previous article (see Reform #2 vol. 1), the European electoral system would go through a radical reformation, which affects the composition and working dynamics of the European Parliament (or EP) profoundly. Based on the figures of turnout and election results, the pan-Europarties and their national branches are going to reshape […]

Reform #2: Political system (vol. 1) - European electoral system

Ferenc Gräff |

Introduction Once the reformation of suffrage (see Reform #1) is accomplished – laying down the foundation of enlightened democracy –, the transformation of the united Europe’s (henceforward Republic of the United Europe or RUE) political system is the next priority. As any political system is complex and their institutions are interconnected, I am going to […]

Reform #1: Suffrage

Ferenc Gräff |

Introduction Today’s modern European democracy grants every adult citizen – regardless of race, gender, social status, wealth, or education – the right to vote in the form of universal suffrage. The right to vote (or active suffrage) is not to be taken for granted, as until the second half of the twentieth century not all […]
