Comment Neelie (Kroes)

Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
[...] Because these are not the values of one particular culture, the preferences of one particular continent. They are human values, universal values; they are the right of a people to be heard by their own government. When there are tens of millions of voices, values, views and values waiting to be heard, the job of the government is to listen to them, respect them and represent them: not shut them out. A debate that is inclusive, free, and open: improving democracy, strengthening a country.
