‘Ode to Joy’ and the European Anthem

If you were to ask any EU citizen born before the fall of the Berlin Wall about the anthem of Europe, it’s likely that you’d get very different answers depending on their origin. If, for example, that citizen were Spanish, they may call to mind a song by rocker Miguel Ríos that has something to do with Europe, Beethoven, and the idea of brotherhood between human beings. Perhaps someone from a different country would recall a song or melody that also has something to do with Beethoven, and with peace and respect between brothers, although they may not be able to recall why. These testimonies help explain the European Anthem and of the anthem of the European Union; why they are what they are and how they have come to define our identity.

Intelligent machines force us to rethink our uniqueness

My brother and I had to take a flight from Lyon to Rome. However because of our chronic forgetfulness, doubled in this case, we only thought about it 4 days before. We went to see what the cheapest flight was, a 70 Euro Easyjet flight. We decided to wait, as we had other things to do. We returned on the afternoon 3 days before the flight: 95 Euros. A little annoyed, we decided to take it, but only after having eaten. We returned and the cost had gone up to 105 Euros after only an hour.

Deprived teachers and demanding parents

School is a place for learning, but for learning what? Education must convey values, such as freedom of expression, but also respect the counter-values coming from every subculture. Without the willingness of parents to accept a different point of view and without thorough training of teachers, pedagogical “battles” fail to achieve their goal.
