Abstract

Due to Hobbesian challenges, the “innocence of the Kantian EUparadise” might get lost. Author claims that the inner unionistic equilibrium will be maintained only if the Atlantic-Central Europe skillfully calibrates and balances its own equidistance from both assertive Russia and the omnipresent US. Any alternative to the EU at present is a grand accommodation of either France or Germany with Russia. This means a return to Europe of the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries – namely, direct confrontations over the Continent’s core sectors, perpetual animosities wars and destructions. The EU should recall that both biology and geopolitics share one basic rule: comply or die. Keywords: European Union; United States; Russia; equilibrium; geopolitics; Kant; Hobbes
