Who will really pay the “own revenues”?

Ever since the recovery package of the European Union was sent on its way through the institutions in Brussels, everyone knew that the joint debt obligations that the EU took up until 2058 need to be paid back somehow. This is particularly true because now that we’ve opened the slippery slope of taking up EU […]

Parenting, not paternalism, defeats bad diets

The European Union regulates so-called “junk food” advertising, in order to protect children from exposure to harmful content. Its rules target food that are high in energy, saturated fats, trans-fatty acids, sugar and salt. This really translates as a massive distrust in parenting.

The case against the EU vaccine passport

In Brussels, the European Commission and Member States have been ironing out the details for the so-called EU “digital green certificate”, a stylish new name for what is essentially an EU vaccine passport. In essence, the scheme is supposed to replace COVID-19 testing whereby travelers are now required to present a negative test upon arrival or […]

Deutschland sollte chinesische Importe mit Vorsicht genießen

Die Europäische Union hat vor kurzem einen wichtigen Schritt gegen Menschenrechtsverletzungen in China in Gang gesetzt. Gemeinsam mit den USA, Kanada und Großbritannien verurteilt Brüssel den Umgang mit den Uiguren in der Xinjiang Provinz. Zwangsarbeit, großangelegter Freiheitsentzug und Zwangssterilisierung werden in einer gemeinsamen Stellungnahme verurteilt und Sanktionen gegen hochrangige chinesische Regierungsvertreter wurden beschlossen. Langsam aber […]
