Our Self: Um blogue desalinhado, desconforme, herético e heterodoxo. Em suma, fora do baralho e (im)pertinente.

Pensamento em curso: «Em Portugal, a liberdade é muito difícil, sobretudo porque não temos liberais. Temos libertinos, demagogos ou ultramontanos de todas as cores, mas pessoas que compreendam a dimensão profunda da liberdade já reparei que há muito poucas.» (António Alçada Baptista, em carta a Marcelo Caetano)

Pro memoria (262) - A quem vos disser que o problema dos migrantes e refugiados deve ser resolvido com o coração recomendai-lhe um transplante

[Uma espécie de sequela de Esclarecendo os conceitos e colocando em perspectiva a crise de migrantes e refugiados para a Europa]

«Germany announced Sunday that it was invoking emergency powers to start protecting its borders, seemingly reaching a point of overload after greeting with open arms tens of thousands of migrants pouring into Europe, and urging other European nations to do the same.

At a news conference, Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière announced that Germany would temporarily enforce measures that would block people at its borders.

The announcement followed a meeting to discuss the refugee crisis, after the flood of people from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other troubled areas into Munich and other Eastern German cities continued unabated for the second weekend in a row.

A total of 12,200 migrants came to Munich on Saturday, according to the German police, The Associated Press reported. On Sunday morning alone, 700 people arrived at Munich’s main train station, the federal police spokesman Simon Hegewald told the A.P.

The emergency measures would presumably allow Germany to turn away migrants from the Balkans and other areas whose citizens are not fleeing war or persecution.»
