The fact that European money lacks any concrete design, instead having abstract and non-existent realities, relveals much about the state of an institution which has many times proven unable and unwilling to face its own history and culture, often dismissing it altogether in the name of a so-called “tolerance” or “respect for others.” Rejecting our culture is not a solution, because it means rejecting what Europe is. When we look at a church, a work of art, a scientific discovery, or again a poem, we must see not a German, Greek, French, Italian or Polish creation only, but rather the product of the European mind, a part of a common heritage. Another solution would also be to provide our money with designs symbolizing Europe, as the American Dollar. In any event, the redesign of our common currency is necessary if we want to show that Europe is a concrete reality and not merely an abstraction.
