It wasn't so long ago when Belgium was without government for quite a while. Of course it had to affect the state sometimes, somehow. Probably easiest to presume - it is because of terrorism. Or because of Middle Eastern endless wars? Kurdish disobeying to Syrian constitution? Or maybe because of Ukraine? Or Brexit? Turkey? New turbulneces in The Balkan? Cuba? Yemen? North Korea? USA elections? Daesh, al-Quaida, of course.
But, if the country does not have a functional government for a longer time, then it is inevitable that it results with lots of vacuum in the state apparatus, mechanism, public service, whatever it is named.
So, the epicentre country of The European Union did not have a government for a long time between 2007 and 2011. In that period, many days were spent to negotioate, to form the government, to dissolve it, to negotiate, to make coalitions, to dissolve them. Belgium has lost its characteristic as a state. Nevertheless, all the institutions of EU have been working normally.
In that period, Belgium became, firstly the HQ of EU and then the state of the citizens of Belgium.
That government, or more precise, crisis of the public sector and all related institutions of the Belgium state have became a fertile ground for making any kind of parallel structure which can do whatever. That crisis has been lasting for almost 5 years, when finally finished at the end of 2011. What can happen to a country dissolving slowly during that period of time? While the Belgium state was falling appart, the EU was growing, in every way.
The death of Belgium state several years ago resulted with the death of many people this morning. They are collateral damage of the spreading of Joseph K monster state. The monster just overtook its host.
More and more people are used as “weapons of mass migrations” - now it is obvious that this kind of weapon can be built up anywhere, everywhere. So, what is the difference between Greece and Belgium today?
