«I’ve alway believed, along with Denis de Rougemont, that Switzerland can embody those virtues of peace and nonviolence which should be the EU pillars. Moreover, I think that if manage to exceed the referedum results and the vetus which prevented the integration of Switzerland, Geneve could rightfully be the capitoli of the United States of Europe». This was the comment of Giorgio Pagano, leader of Esperanto Radikala Asocio, hearing that Switzerland univeristies like Lugano and Mendrisio, are searching for young people who want to study IT. The search is explained by the fact that the IT sector is the fifth most important field in Switzerland, and it is bond to develop further in the next years. Europe is expected to employ 700.000 technician, 35.000 in Switzerland only, and they may be insufficient.
«I do agree with Switzerland vision’s, which seek an acceleration of informatization processes in order to break up the dependence of our continent in the face of the United States.
The ERA has always said that the main goal of EU is the informatic independence. First of all Europe has to protect their nationals sensitive data, in order to avoid them to end in the hands of the american informatic multinationals. At the same time, Europe has to develop independently and in a innovative way its own structures and nets, even satellitar ones, and to create OS and software.
The World Wide Web was born in 1989 at CERN, along the border between Switzerland and France. CERN was created and developed by europeans. But the American occupation is so strong nowadays that we consume only american products and services.
The recovery starts from here. I dare to suggest to european scientists a guideline to follow, or at least to consider with care and without prejudices: to use the International Language (Esperanto) as the information language of the future. Many studies shows that its clearness and its lack of sematic ambiguity make it perfect to make the sector develop.
I hope that Web 3.0 will be “Made in Europe!”» concludes Pagano.
