Draghi’s Globalist EU Speech Urges Concentration of Power

A quite revealing speech about the future of the European Union was given in Brussels on April 16, 2024 by Mario Draghi, who some say is slated to become the next president of the EU Commission, replacing scandal-ridden Ursula von der Leyen. Draghi, former Italian PM and former head of the European Central Bank, gave policy recommendations for the future, directly to members of the EU Commission. In light of this year’s elections to the EU parliament, the content of this speech should be exposed, because it epitomizes so much of what is wrong today with the political direction of the European Union.

The speech was called “Radical Change—Is What Is Needed”; an understandable title considering the dismal path the EU is currently on. It would indeed be a “radical change” in the current political environment to allow more freedom, less regulation, less redistribution, and less taxation, in order to jumpstart Europe economically. Not surprisingly, that is not at all Draghi has in mind since he is a statist through and through. What he proposes is even more of the same interventionist diet.
