The rule of law is the response to the crimes in Cologne

The rule of law is the response to the crimes in Cologne

MSFL Member Tim Quitmann from Cologne explains his perspective on the recent incidents in his home city. source: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stadtentwicklung_in_Köln#/media/File:Kölner_Rhein.jpg The recent events during the night of New Year’s Eve in Cologne and other German cities certainly must have consequences for politics and our society. Women were sexually harassed and suffered physical violence helplessly. It goes without saying that those criminals need to be prosecuted and condemned as soon as possible, regardless of their background. But those crimes also need to have serious consequences for the way government works nowadays.   The recent occurrences raised discussions about general internal security in Germany….

Why Bombing Syria Is a Bad Decision

Why Bombing Syria Is a Bad Decision

By Joshua King Why Bombing Syria is a Bad Decision Picture taken from: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/68/RAF_Harrier_GR9.JPG A ludicrous decision was made last week in the House of Commons that bombing Syria would somehow be in the interests of the United Kingdom. Past British gung-ho foreign policy embarrassments have seemingly been wiped from the memory of 337MPs in favour of a knee-jerk emotion led response after the dreadful Paris tragedy. The common rabble during the debate from  ‘pro-bombers’ consisted of differing variations of: ‘Daesh is bad, therefore we should bomb them.’ Of course anyone who provided any thoughtful critique of this thesis was unhelpfully…

Prof. Erich Weede

Open Borders and Migration

Editorial note: The views expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect those of Maastricht Students For Liberty. OPEN BORDERS AND MIGRATION  by Prof. Dr. Erich Weede  In principle, I am in favor of open borders, in practice I am against. Why this ambivalence and ambiguity? Let me start with the case for open borders: The West invented economic freedom, established capitalism, and overcame mass poverty before the great Asian civilizations because of disunity or the political fragmentation of Europe, because of the exit opportunities for Europeans which this political disunity provided. If exit or migration opportunities have been a…

The Catalan Question – When Law meets Justice

The Catalan Question – When Law meets Justice ‘An unjust law is no law at all’ Martin Luther Only several weeks ago, on 18 September 2014, Europe could observe an astonishing case of direct democracy – the people of Scotland, 5,3 million, went to the ballot boxes to decide on whether or not to stay part of the United Kingdom. Running up to these, there had been long debates about whether such a vote would be rightful, who should be allowed to vote in it, and how England and the European Union would treat Scotland in the case of it…
