A Constitutional Moment 2020 – Downplayed?

The rejections of the Constitutional treaty in 2005 was a not a
constitutional moment. It was a contrived top down attempt to generate
popular endorsement for modest progressive developments, which took place anyway in the home of the Lisbon Treaty. Today we have public officials and leaders downplaying a moment where there are generally fundamental constitutional issues to be resolved: They relate to finance and solidarity, immigration and belonging, as well as peace and defense in Europe and the World.
