Europe’s Identity Crisis

My Preamble

Stefan Wilkanowicz, Tygodnik Powszechny (liberal Catholic weekly), Krakow, Poland, June 29, 2003

The current drafts of the preamble to the future constitution of the European Union have convinced me that it must be based on the noble and bitter truth, not selective memory or meaningless generalizations. Thus I wrote my own, for myself and those who think like me. I plan to live accordingly, regardless of the pronouncements of our collective body.

We, Europeans, are We, Europeans, would like to build our future together We commit ourselves to making every effort to create optimal conditions for the development of each person, society, and all of humanity.
