The progressives are looking at supranational solutions. The conservative view opposes these supranational solutions because it sees them as pulling apart the nation state and diluting its sovereignty. The sovereignty-based approach holds that nation states are the most important actors. They should cooperate to tackle global problems but they should never cede their sovereignties to anybody else – Professor John Yoo pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.

“The United States began to follow a different political pattern than Western democracies traditionally had — one that escaped democratic accountability. Certain non-governmental actors, notably foundations, were now licensed to bring about political change — not through the people’s representatives in Congress, but through the courts and the regulatory agencies" – Christopher Caldwell pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.

Today, it is evident that the tech companies have become a threat for our democracies and bring more polarization in society. They have to be regulated. The European proposals that are the precursors of coming national laws, such as in Hungary have the right approach – Jan A.G.M. VAN DIJK, Professor of University of Twente pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service.

“There are a couple of things we need to learn from Brexit. One of the things is how European countries at times distort their own internal debates in the EU” – Professor Holger Hestermeyer, leader of a research group at the Max-Planck-Institute in Heidelberg pointed out in a conversation about Brexit with Lénárd Sándor, researcher of the National University of Public Service.

This is where the Central European countries could take the lead by help European tech companies set up R&D- and manufacturing facilities there – Dr. Lennart Brandt pointed out in a conversation about the crises in Europe, the positive implications of Brexit, the uniqueness of a European way of life and situation of Central Europe.

Facing such profound challenges as the EU has done in the last decade or so has exposed the fundamental weakness of the Union; that many of its member states default to national solutions to the challenges they face, and have no patience for ex-cathedra instructions from a distant and aloof Brussels – Roger Moorhouse, British historian pointed out.

"A major difficulty with the courts adopting aggressive interpretations of rights is that Americans are now, in important respects, ruled by unelected judges. On many fundamental matters, we no longer have the possibility of voting. This is anti-democratic. It also undermines the rule of law" - Renée Lettow Lerner, Professor of Law at the George Washington University Law School, pointed out in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor.

Mais à la différence de Rome qui maintenait les identités des Peuples de l’Empire, les cours européennes ont tendance à niveler ces identités et à imposer à tous les Etats un système de valeur qui fait abstraction de leur histoire, de leur culture, de leur religion – dit Bertrand Mathieu, professeur de droit constitutionnel à l’Université de Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne.

Things will undoubtedly change now that the UK has gone. Without its powerful voice, the other member nations will either progress faster towards ‘ever closer union’, or someone else will have to step into the UK’s shoes. Either way, it will deeply affect the future relationships between nations within the EU – pointed out by Keith Lowe, British writer and historian.

Europe (and the West in general) are afflicted by a curious form of subconscious self-destruction: the unwillingness to defend their own cultural identity and strategic interests. The Visegrad states are for the moment the last large sanctuary of true European identity. This might be a historical occasion: they could become a firm basis from which Western European conservatives could proceed to the cultural reconquest of Europe – pointed by David Engels, professor of the Free University Brussels in a conversation with Lénárd Sándor, researcher at the National University of Public Service. An interview by Sándor Lénárd.
