Macron. Sylvie Goulard. Ira furibonda per il controllo della Unione Europea.

Macron Merkel Parigi

Il superbo ha un concetto di sé stesso così elevato, ma così elevato da considerarsi dio sulla terra, Ma il percepirsi come una sorta di divinità autoreferenziale ha come conseguenza la granitica certezza che la propria volontà sia anche onnipotente: per il superbo al suo volere dovrebbe conseguire in modo automatico l’effettivo potere attuativo.

Ma nella vita umana ci sono anche gli altri, talora superbi anche essi.

Così la volontà del superbo si scontra con la dura realtà che gli altri possano non essere di accordo oppure anche contestarla. Dapprima il nostro uomo resta semplicemente stupefatto che gli altri non si sottomettano ai propri voleri, ma in breve inizia ad odiarli in modo violento e totale. Poco o punto importa il perché gli altri si siano opposti. La loro opposizione diventa immediatamente la prova euristica che la volontà del superbo non sia onnipotente: lo umilia fino al midollo.

E più è radicata la superbia nel proprio io, maggiore è l’odio viscerale che ne emerge, con l’imperiosa urgenza di distruggere fisicamente ogni possibile oppositore. Solo distruggendo quanti si siano opposti il superbo recupera la sua percezione di onnipotenza e, sotto sotto, la propria autostima. Si innesca di conseguenza una lotta mortale: è diventata questione di vita o di morte.

Come corollario a margine, è elemento caratteristico dei superbi l’incapacità strutturale ad ammettere di aver fatto un qualsivoglia errore: la capacità di autocritica e di saper chiedere scusa all’occorrenza è aliena alla mente superba. La colpa sarà sempre ed invariabilmente degli altri. E spesso la tragedia rasenta la farsa, il superbo appare ai più come un moccioso che frigna di rabbia impotente, accusando la maestra di avercela con lui, di perseguitarlo.

Senza avere ben presente questa realtà i comportamenti di Mr Macron risulterebbero essere incomprensibili.

È altro tratto caratteristico dei superbi grondanti di odio accusare gli altri di essere odiatori ad oltranza: si imputano agli altri i propri vizi.

La posta in gioco è chi sia egemone in questa Unione Europea.

In un clima politico così frammentato nessuno ha la forza numerica di imporsi, e Mr Macron si era illuso di poter essere lui l’egemone, appurata la lenta scomparsa della Bundeskanzlerin Frau Merkel verso l’oblio della inconsistenza politica.

Ma la dura realtà evidenzia come il fronte liberal-socialista stia disgregandosi. E questo sarebbe l’ultimo colpo:

Germania. Merkel rifiuta la firma alla lettera EU per il ‘clima’.

Gran brutto segno clinico lo scollamento dal reale.

Se è vero che l’Imperatore Caligola aveva fatto nominare senatore il proprio cavallo, sarebbe altrettanto vero constatare come Mr Macron non sia a livello di Caligola. Forse potrà impuntarsi su Mrs Sylvie Goulard, ma di essere l’egemone della Unione Europea adesso se lo può scordare in modo definitivo.

Reuters. 2019-10-11. Macron cries foul as EU lawmakers snub French pick for industry job

French President Emmanuel Macron insisted Sylvie Goulard was the victim of a “political game” on Thursday after France’s choice to be the head of EU industrial policy was emphatically rejected by European lawmakers.

Goulard was pressed by lawmakers over her role in a jobs scandal, in which she denies wrongdoing, and also her work in previous years as an adviser for a U.S. think-tank which paid her more than 10,000 euros a month.

Her rejection, led by the biggest group in the European Parliament, comes against the backdrop of a power struggle between lawmakers and Macron about who should take leadership roles in the next European Commission.

The wrestle for influence comes at a time when the EU executive needs a strong mandate to take on a host of challenges over the next five years, ranging from anti-EU populists at home to a more assertive China abroad.

After a second hearing, Goulard, an experienced former French diplomat and EU lawmaker, was rejected on Thursday by 82 EU lawmakers in two committees charged with vetting her, with only 29 backing her – failing to reach the requisite two-thirds support.

“EU citizens won’t put their trust in their institutions when a Commissioner sees absolutely no problem in making 10,000 euros a month from a private lobby in addition to her MEP salary,” said French far-left lawmaker Manon Aubry.

However Macron saw different motivations for the rejection.

“Sylvie Goulard has been the object of a political game which affects the whole of the European Commission,” said a statement issued by his office.

Macron said later: “I need to understand what was at play. Resentment. Pettiness maybe. But I need to understand.”

TOUGH TASK FOR NEW EU CHIEF

The rejection complicates the task of incoming European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen, who was also put forward by Macron. While she is a center-right politician, she was not the first choice of lawmakers of the center-right European People’s Party (EPP), the biggest bloc in parliament.

She has already seen her Hungarian and Romanian candidates for roles rejected by the assembly.

In July, Macron killed off an EPP initiative to decide who would become the next head of the powerful European Commission, which helps decide policy for 500 million Europeans.

Following Goulard’s rejection, president-elect von der Leyen called for European unity of purpose toward a “common objective” of forming a new Commission.

“We must not lose sight of what is at stake: the next five years will be decisive for Europe in a difficult global environment,” she said in a statement after meeting leaders of key lawmaker groups. “It is now necessary … to speed up the process so that Europe can act swiftly.”

GOULARD CAUGHT IN JOBS FUROR

Macron proposed Goulard for the post of EU internal market commissioner, responsible for European defense integration, a role which would have seen her manage a new multi-billion euro defense fund.

Following Macron’s 2017 election victory, Goulard was appointed defense minister but resigned barely a month into the job after an investigation into the way her political party, MoDem, hired assistants in the European assembly.

At an earlier hearing on Oct. 2, Goulard denied wrongdoing, saying the funds had been repaid and that she considered the affair a human resources issue rather than a legal one.

She said she risked becoming a victim of a “political game” among rival political groups in the European Parliament, particularly at the hands of the EPP.

“I am not under formal investigation,” she told lawmakers on Thursday as she protested her innocence once more.

She also expressed regret that her work for the Berggruen Institute, during her time as an EU lawmaker from 2013 to 2016, had cast a shadow over her candidacy.

European lawmaker Stephane Sejourne, an ally of Macron, echoed the French president’s sentiments.

“Sylvie Goulard was very clearly the hostage of national and European political game-playing,” he tweeted. “This shows that from the start, it was never about her competence. European politics shouldn’t be written by resentment.”

Parliament, which has been fragmented between pro and anti-EU groups since May elections, will vote on the Commission as a whole on Oct. 23 before it can take office.
