Live in Corona times: It's the European Whole

The recent negotiations on the EU budget and the European aid Fund for the compensation of Corona follow: recovery after the pandemic is a Chance to make the European Union stronger, as well as a risk that the opposite will occur. The opportunity arises from the fact that almost all European countries were taken out of the blue from an invisible enemy to any nation-state border stops. And the opportunity lies in the realization that in Europe's political-economic System can flourish, and the other, the other permanently unhappy.

But if no unit is achieved when divisions and national selfishness prevail, the effect is exactly the opposite: The Chance is lost, each country will continue alone, and the recovery phase will make some countries richer and others poorer. This would allow the populists of every Hue, of every country and of every origin, the Failure of the European idea and of the democratic institutions in each country to take advantage of.
