Fire-walking: A key skill for EU Commissioners?


The first Slovenian nominee for EU Commissioner, was Aleka Bratusek. As a result of odd electoral circumstances, she had managed to nominate herself, despite her party having just been voted out of office – but that’s another story.  She gave a very lack-lustre performance at her parliamentary hearing (which I attended), and as a result, she was persuaded to withdraw.

Her replacement is Violetta Bulc, Slovenia’s Development Minister  She is a woman of remarkable views and skills.  She has the ideal solution to global warming.  She says “Natural environmental heat can be transformed directly into electrical energy”.  Wonderful.  We can cool the planet and generate electricity at the same time.  I just hope that Violetta has a patent on the process, so that she can make a few kopeks out of it.

Then, she is a campaigner for Syntropy. No, I don’t know what it is, either.  But she refers to complex formulæ.  And floods of emotions.  So it must be important.  She’s also a blogger.  A recent blog is entitled “The vibrations of the white lions in the new era” .  I haven’t read it in detail, but it shows an original angle.

She has a Black Belt at Tae Kwan Do.  But best of all – she’s a qualified Shaman and Fire-Walker!  How about that?  It never occurred to me before, but I guess fire-walking is a very valuable skill for an EU Commissioner-Designate.  It might help her to negotiate some of the hot issues she’s sure to face.

Only one problem: so far as I can find out, she doesn’t walk on water.  But there.  You can’t win ’em all.

    With regular consistency the lunatics are slowly but surely taking over the asylum. Just like the three stooges plus another 500 odd we have over here not a cocking clue on business and industry and what a total mess our energy process is in. Could it be that power stations will be powered by lions dung?

    Notice the huge bonfire behind her for the firewalk coals.
    If she’s out to reduce her carbon footprint, I’d say she’s off to a bad start.

    With the Chinese medicine, when the two or more treatments are working at once towards the same goal, and in the Chinese boardroom, or in the Party leadership when different methods are used together working towards the same aims, then it is said that they are, in the same direction, in the same tune – 同向;同调 ( pinyin = tóng xiàng;tóng diào )

    This is “Syntropy”
