'Commonalities And Divisions'

SBS, 8:30pm, Sat, 15 Dec 2018, 60 minutes

Europe has been a battle concept for centuries: it often takes foreign enemies to weld the Europeans together. But for centuries, they were primarily fighting against themselves. It was not until the Enlightenment and the French Revolution of 1789 that a new idea of Europe emerged based on common values: freedom, equality, and fraternalism. But before these ideas prevail, exaggerated nationalism drove Europeans into two devastating world wars.

Until 1914, Europe dominated the world through its industries and colonies. After 1945, everything lied in ruins. The USA in the West and the USSR in the East were the new global superpowers vying for pre-eminence. Between them, the Iron Curtain slowly descended across Europe. Under American protection from the Communist 'Red Menace', France and Germany revive and patch relations, together becoming the driving force to unite Europe. But financial and refugee crises now pose new challenges to unity.
