    The way to “make Europe great again,” the speakers agreed, was by restoring individual nations and cultures.

    The gathering was cosponsored by the Milan-based political-cultural journal Logos together with Breitbart News. A group of leading thinkers came together last Thursday to discuss the future of Europe and taking back the sovereignty of their own nations from the autocratic rule of Brussels.

    Ted Malloch, Donald Trump’s putative ambassador to the European Union, spoke about economic stagnation and migration crisis in the EU, while prof. Giuseppe Valditara, the academic director of Logos, likened Europe’s contemporary migrant crisis with similar events in the ancient Roman Empire that eventually led to its collapse.

    “Many speak of the need for ‘generosity’ in welcoming huge numbers of economic migrants,” Valditara pointed out, “but few speak of the generosity needed toward our children and future generations as we hand on to them a society that scarcely resembles the one we received in heritage.”

    Italy’s former finance minister, Senator Giulio Tremonti, said the “new man” and the “new society,” were both based on a unitary idea allowing no opposition, undermining the very democratic system they claimed to be serving.

    Tremonti, the author of numerous books including his recently published Mundus Furiosus, offered a historical analysis of how the European Union has gradually separated itself from an active partnership with the individual member states, arrogating more and more decision-making power to itself.

    Brussels, Tremonti argued, has become fearful of the people it governs. “The Europe of Brussels has little by little taken on the absurd form of an upside-down pyramid,” Tremonti said, “built with para-constitutional measures of an excess of power and a deficit of democracy.”

    Marcello Foa, editor-in-chief of the Swiss-based Corriere del Ticino, said the voters had grown tired of the aloof and arrogant establishment. News was branded as “fake” Foa noted, when alternative perspectives and worldviews were put forward.
