A group of European intellectuals has presented in Paris, at the headquarters of the French Senate, the “One of Us” Cultural Platform and its manifesto, which defends the dignity of the person and the defense of all human life. Its promoters, led by the French Remi Brague, philosopher and professor emeritus of the University of the Sorbonne and the University of Munich, offer in the manifesto a diagnosis of the moral crisis that Europe suffers and defend all human life. The symptoms include the crisis of the family and marriage, relativism, attacks on freedoms, the social acceptance of abortion, misery, violence, degradation of the environment and the contempt of the person, that is, the dehumanization of man.
The aim of “One of Us” is to draw attention to the awareness of society and the regeneration of European morality through the re-establishment of its fundamental principles and values; the education reform; the awakening of the European conscience, and the reform of its public opinion. In the declaration it is emphasized that the vocation is not political but intellectual and moral, since they are not a political group but a group of thinkers. The manifesto promotes, among other things, the defense of life, the protection of the family, the birthrate, the affirmation of sexual binarity, the protection of freedom of thought, expression and education, the promotion of natural reproduction and the development of the potential of human nature.
