Dear Mr. Barroso,
Below is a letter which I sent to the EU Commission on 6 June 2013.
It is my comment on the state of the Union.
The EU is absolutely unable to enforce even the most basic respect for human dignity and human rights among its members. Dignity is the subject of the first article of the EU Charter of the Fundamental Rights.
I am aware of legal constraints that do not allow a direct intervention into a country’s “internal affairs”. However if we are to be a _Union_, i.e. a community, then we must engage in a direct, honest and free exchange of views on anything that bothers us. Specific legal constraints cannot be an obstacle to a free exchange of information among the citizens of different countries of Europe and its European representatives.
The problem described in my letter is very real and very ugly. For some reason the psychological terror is not treated as crime. The entire human rights framework is blind to this type of crimes.
I urge you to take action on this issue. I repeat my and my wife’s offer of travelling to Brussels in order to present testimony and evidence of how psychological terror is applied in Poland. Is anyone in Brussels afraid of facing the truth?
By the way, the following paragraph in your speech is surprisingly similar to a paragraph from our letter:
“For that reason, strengthening the social dimension is a priority for the months to come, together with our social partners. The Commission will come with its communication on the social dimension of the economic and monetary union on the 2nd of October. Solidarity is a key element of what being part of Europe is all about, and something to take pride in.”
In our letter we say:
“The advanced knowledge of the social sciences was employed for the sole purpose of murdering the soul and murdering the social dimension of a person. Psychology became operational psychology. The key elements to the successful murder of the social being are the isolation of the victim and the participation of as many perpetrators as possible. This is the true meaning of Solidarity in Poland. It is the solidarity of the oppressors against an individual. All these methods inherited by the current Polish junta are widely used in Poland today. Psychological terror against any bright and brave individual standing up for dignity and honor is the main tool of the regime.”
The phrases that appear in both texts are “social dimension”, “key elements”, “solidarity”.
Note that also the phrase “the trenches” appears in your speech as well as in our letter.
