It is too early to send Macron to the builders’ pantheon, but he, a staunch supporter of a united Europe, is betting his future re-election on the success of a dubious and peril-ridden undertaking to recast the EU from stem to stern and newly burnish the shield of its diplomacy in a world that is decidedly unstable and hazy.

To the West, we have Trump’s contempt, to the East, Putin’s “one-man democracy”, and to the South, Erdogan’s triumphal Turkey, not to mention the various alliances that form and are torn apart in Asia or the Middle East. Meanwhile, Europe entertains the most lofty promises possible. Although damaged by the recent series of crises, the European Union must not cede an inch of its status as the foremost world economic power.
It must doubtless constantly re-evaluate its basic values, adjust its verbose guidelines to economic reality, invest in the sprouting new fields of knowledge, bet on the innovativeness of its companies, invent new mechanisms for mutual assistance between European countries, re-inspire youth tempted by populism, and combat the social dumping that undermines it from within.
And, in the course of this unmanageable enterprise, Jupiter will have to count on his Juno: Germany. Not as the loving sister of mythology, but rather as an obligated and demanding partner. The opportunity for recovery is within our reach...and we must seize it now! [ reduce text ]
