About the talk
Europe is all about freedom, equality, solidarity or, to put it in other words, that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights! Well, for a European citizen it is like that, but coming from underdeveloped countries, Europe seals itself like a fortress, forgetting all the values it stands for. There is a new name for that phenomenon: Borderline Syndrome.
