Contrarian Posted November 28, 2022 Report Share Posted November 28, 2022 (edited) According to a strong theory coming from political analysts in Romania and Bulgaria, the European Union might do a deflection on the Schengen access and just allow it by "air". Behind this decision, the factor might be that the powers in Western Europe want to keep the 2 countries as a "buffer" zone, in terms of immigration coming from other areas. Ok, so let me bring up some points, I welcome anyone to disagree with me: - Romania and Bulgaria were the good student in class while Hungary and Poland created issues for the European Union block. - The European Union decision will look like a punishment for the good students in class. So Hungary, Poland can smoke in the hallway and the good students need to stay in class. Ok. - Putin's sabotage is not only towards the Ukrainians. He wants to hit in my view power grids so Ukrainians flee in Europe to seek shelter. Romania and Bulgaria, especially the first were also the good students receiving and will still receive refugees as that is the correct thing to do during the war. Is not the fault of the Ukrainian people. - Economy is bad already in those regions, this winter -> this will intensity and now enters on the stage the far right. - In Romania, a former street football hooligan started a movement with the usual nationalistic tendencies. His tactic is simple, he travels the country and targets the villages, people that do not have access to that much information, plays some local music, talks about foreigners disrespecting Romanians, EU sceptic, etc, etc. Propaganda 101. But guess what? Politics is not your idealism, is what you can do to win and take advantage also about mistakes on the other side. - If the European Union decides soon to bar entry to Schengen, the messages from the populists in Eastern Europe will become stronger. You add in the pot the economic insecurity. Does the European Union want a Orban in Romania, Bulgaria? Or is this some sort of punishment because Romania put America first and not old Europe first? - These are theories, I hope the powers that be at EU allow access to these 2 countries to the Schengen. Reward the good students in class, especially after this war. Loyalty needs to be rewarded, or else people will look somewhere else and that is a risk for democracy. The decision should be in a few days. Edited November 28, 2022 by Contrarian Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
