Holy crap. I read the news articles in OP's post, I had no idea the EU was being this insane. Seems as though they're overriding all national
laws in favour of their own misguided and opinionated judgement. The elimination of national borders? Why is that necessary? Why would they want to
simply delete culture and history, and perhaps language?
The whole thing reeks of Orwell's 1984. I wonder when we'll have to start learning newspeak, and recollecting the past will be forbidden.
As for banning stem cell research.. that makes me sick. Although I suspect that it wasn't done purely for "ethical" reasons, because no fool in
their right mind would hinder science like that. Remember how it was considered heresy to suggest that the Earth orbits the Sun, and we weren't at
the centre of the universe, etc? It's just going to hold back technological development for years and years - a repetition of the dark ages.
What's up with the herbal medicine thing? Does that mean if one were to grow some herbs in one's garden, and share them with one's friends and
neighbours by mixing up some traditional remedies, that one is breaking the law?
The elimination of tradition. It all coincides. They may as well burn down the libraries and galleries of art, tear down the ancient castles and
ensnare all citizens in chains. Why is no-one doing anything there? Does no-one care, or even know? If this were happening in my country, I would be
first in line to fight against it.
