The month of July 2012 will go down as a landmark in Romanian History. For this is the moment, when the light of individual freedom finally broke through the clouds, onto the nation.
While leaders from Western Europe and America bitterly reacted to the Governments hijacking of the constitution and newspapers around the world wrote headlines that “Freedom is threatened in Romania”, the average Romanian passively wondered “What is the big deal?”
The big deal is that individual freedom, which came to much of Europe after World War 1, is knocking at the door of every Romanian.
The word Democracy is meaningless. For centuries people have voted for government representatives, but still lived in fear, harassment and bondage to political corruption. The concept of individual freedom is all powerful. Individual freedom means average citizens no longer are subject to Mayors that can deny citizens legal building permits, access to jobs, or city records just because they vote for someone else or won’t pay a bribe. It means politicians cannot offer concessions, illegal logging rights, or special pensions to people that offer them gifts. He means that no politician can steal from the state and rob the nation of the money to pay decent salaries to our teachers, doctors, and police.
Individual power corrupts. Parliamentary power corrupts. It corrupts the same way in Romania, as is does in Germany, America and everywhere else. This is why it is essential that individual rights be protected by laws enforced by a judicial system free from political influence and manipulation. This is why the world is appalled and demanding the right of liberty for the Romanian people.
All of us in Romania know that the USL political interference in the Constitutional Court is no different than what happens every day in local courts across the country. The difference is that thanks to the European Union Mechanism for Cooperation and Verification (CVM) and good work of some Romanian leaders, Romanian judges are gaining the confidence to act independently from political influence. They are acting courageously to bring justice to the people that have stolen billions of dollars from the state. And they are paving the way for the dream of every Romanian; to live in a country where the court system gives the each citizen freedom from the harassment and manipulation of all powerful politicians. We have a long way to go, but we are at the beginning of the end to the disease of massive corruption in Romania.
What came to western Europeans less than century ago is now breaking forth in Romania. Do not believe in the propaganda on television and newspapers controlled by men that want to profit by keeping Romanians in bondage. Believe that the same individual freedom that came to Germans in the 1950’s is now at your Romania’s doorstep. Demand an independent judicial system that protects your individual rights.
