The essay takes a look at the current global situation in the context of the emerging new Global Order. Although the European Union (EU) is still grappling with minority issues inherited from the past, uncontrolled large-scale migration into Europe has now become a major challenge.
In these dramatic circumstances Humanity needs a Moral Compass. For Europe the Moral Compass is composed of its Core Values expressed through the European way of life including the endeavor to achieve environmental sustainability.
In the new Global Order, moral resilience may well be Europe’s best guardian of its Core Values: the upshot of several thousand years of cultural-, societal- and economic struggle and achievements.
Moral resilience will also reinforce EU’s responsibility and commitment towards: (i) its historic minorities; (ii) the new arriving migrants; and (iii) the migrants’ countries of origin (that must not be disadvantaged by being emptied of its youth, best educated individuals and most active entrepreneurs).
Keywords: global order, uncontrolled migration, Moral Compass, Western Core Values
