Europe? (19/12/21 08:37:21)
    It is my understanding that EU/EEA is not an empire. There is a deep split, and it seems to me that some of it is temporarily hidden by substantial transfers of money from the nonbelievers to the believers. In my experience and terminology religion as it is declared, is very much about preserving power structures. It is still relevant to highlight the fact that the original sin in Judaism and Christianity was the seeking of knowledge.

    Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 have passed some 20 000 000 000 km into space and have seen interesting sights on their way. How can that be irrelevant and compatible with the orthodox beliefs?

    So - to have a stable EU when the money runs out, there is a need for a massive improvement of education in science and technology: Not on the avantgarde, but on the prosaic level. Mechanics, optics, electricity, biology, chemistry. The real stuff.

    "The Iron Curtain that once divided Europe may be long gone, but the continent today is split by stark differences in public attitudes toward religion, minorities and social issues such as gay marriage and legal abortion. Compared with Western Europeans, fewer Central and Eastern Europeans would welcome Muslims or Jews into their families or neighborhoods, extend the right of marriage to gay or lesbian couples or broaden the definition of national identity to include people born outside their country.

    These differences emerge from a series of surveys conducted by Pew Research Center between 2015 and 2017 among nearly 56,000 adults (ages 18 and older) in 34 Western, Central and Eastern European countries, and they continue to divide the continent more than a decade after the European Union began to expand well beyond its Western European roots to include, among others, the Central European countries of Poland and Hungary, and the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania."
