The spirit guiding those who initiated and negotiated the TTIP agreement involved a very strange conception of democracy: trade was elevated above the real values and aims of the EU and its member states. Trade interests predominate in policy related to agriculture, environment, consumer protection, energy and resources. They influence the provision of public services, the negotiation of contracts, and even the legislative process.

In 1543 Andrés Laguna, a prominent physician, presented a Latin address in which he referred to a woman who had come to him for medical assistance: "A woman came to me who looked to be in a very bad way: she was weeping uncontrollably, sorrowful, pale, her arms and legs were injured, even beaten, her eyes were vacant, she was shockingly wasted." The woman was called Europa, and she told Laguna of her sufferings.

The line of confrontation that seems to be emerging with greater prominence at an international scale is rather that between the liberal-democratic tradition of the West and extra-European cultural traditions that have re-established their guiding role and proudly lay claim to their difference.

Europe is a workshop where we are experimenting not just with a new form of economic and political organisation, but also with original forms of action and participation, new power relations, conflicts and alliances; a place for sharing models of behaviour and developing practices of interaction that cut across the national confines, and thus contribute to redefining our identities as Europeans.

The greatest achievement of twentieth century constitutionalism was the laying down of a complex system of limits and constraints to the agency of public authorities in the post-Second World War constitutions, in the form of fundamental rights. Thanks to the rigid constitutions, explicitly drafted to avoid any repetition of the horrors of the fascist regimes and the world wars, an extraordinary and happy mix of the ancient and ongoing contrasts between reason and will was produced.
