Heyoka’s Workbench


(Walter Hallstein, German jurist and politician)

»Anyone who does not believe in miracles in European affairs is not a realist.«

Views on Hallstein may not be undivided – in the political sphere as well as regarding human interaction. But at any rate, the likes of Hallstein, Monnet, Schuman, Churchill, Beyen, De Gasperi and others had clear ideas of Europe and a European commonwealth and acted accordingly.
