Luxembourg is both the name of a small country and its capital, located in the West of Europe lodged between Belgium, France and Germany. In fact it is so small that you might see it as a city with outlaying districts and surrounding country side.. Perhaps the inhabitants of this small country might best speak for themselves about that. So go and ask them. And did you know there are just like 600.000 of them.. so the country is smaller than a lot of cities elsewhere in the world.
“How come that it exist at all?” Kris asked..
“I bet because someone forgot to conquer it.” Merit said.
“Well.. perhaps someone would have.. but then other countries frown on such things: they get jealous, because they want to have it for themselves,.. so, it might exist because one does not want the other to have it. You know.. politics. The kind of self servicing politics that some enlightened philosophies like to take for being the prime motivation of humanity.”
“I bet it was just because after the centuries of conquering the bigger countries ran out of steam. So by the time Luxembourg was eligible to be absorbed international laws were accepted as and it was saved by the bell Like.. why would we want to invade our neighbors? We want peace.. and love. Positive stuff.” Kris said
. “Perhaps. it is a quiet little capital though. Nice and quiet.”
“I likes it!” Kris said.
“I like it too… and since it is in between some very big and powerful countries that could have conquered it or divided it, it. is like a sign of what peace can do. For we have not had a war in Western Urupe since world war II. And certainly not Luxembourg. So I think it should the capital of Urope. As a symbol.” Merit said, “It already has a lot of European Union institutions.. so why not all?”
“We could have multiple capitals can’t we?”
“We could. Who says we can’t?”
“Well, we name a few others we liked.”
“Didn’t we like them all?”
“Yes, but we can’t have all cities as the capital of Urupe?”
“Who says we can’t?”
