An inconvenient truth

Yesterday I got a “politically correct” lesson about an inconvenient truth I did not expect to receive from an institution that was supposed to promote open-mindedness and free discussion. The lesson reminded of a comparison by one insider of then the CEEC to the Andropov’s Politburo of the USSR. The full range of similarities is given in the book by the person who worked in the Cabinet. Unfortunately, I have to admit that propaganda officers of the present time European Commission behave likewise. The worst scenario, when manner of dealing with inconvenient opinions (and persons?) has grown backwards, even back to Stalinist methods of censorship. It appears that some people need to have their opinions approved “imprimatur” before they appear even in a privately-owned public forum as facebook. As one French president said once that the Eastern European countries have missed their possibility to stay silent, yesterday one propaganda officer from some European institution lost his chance to enrol into public debate and to make points clear to everyone (especially when looking for new recruits), to discuss questions in a professional and transparent manner, but chose to eliminate the question and the person from it’s contacts. It still left the question open to the candidates, as this is not the only forum where the European governance and staffing issues are discussed, and hopefully more politically (and humanly) correctly than the people paid by the European tax payers.

Without an open and free discussion there is no open and free Europe!
