Progress in Europe – Labyrint Europa

Got up early to get a head start on my collegues.Opmaak 1

But Nooteboom’s Labyrint Europa came in between.

The story about the recession in the 1970s should be a awareness starter for all swayed-by-the-issues-of-the-day politicians. Especially an interesting analysis of Enoch Powell’s affairs. Very relevant today, this more intelligent and eloquent British predecessor of our Geert Wilders.

Interestingly, Nooteboom in the book contemplates when he would be able to travel through Europe without having to change money and with a European passport in his pocket. In a wheel chair, he assumes.

He wrote this in 1977, and we can say things have been achieved in Europe  after all.
