The other Europe

By David Bidussa*

It is not true that the Charter of Values recently signed by 16 right-wing political groups is “against Europe”. That text is the voice and convictions of the “other Europe”. The one that does not have as “livre de chevet” the Encyclopeadia by d’Alembert and Diderot but Memories illustrating the history of Jacobinism by Augustin Barruel and then The protocols of the elders of Zion. Two texts that have shaped millions of Europeans in the last 230 years and still do.
