Subject: CALL FOR DISCUSSION: SOC.CULTURE.EUROPE
Keywords: rejected

	I formally propose the creation of soc.culture.europe to
provide for a forum for discussion on the emerging European Community.
Why soc.culture.* and not talk.politics.*? Because (I believe)
fundamental to the new E.C. will be the development of a common
European culture, albeit with a great deal of subsidiarity.

	I invite discussion....

I herewith propose to create a new newsgroup:

Name:		 soc.culture.europe

Moderation:	 none

Goals:		 to discuss all aspects of an all-European nature,
		 such as:

		 - languages spoken
		 - cultural interaction
		 - travel information
		 - news from European capitals
		 - cultural events (theatre, museums, movies, tv)
		 - politics relating to all of Europe, such as:
			- the European Communities
			- the European Free Trade Association
			- the European Economic Space
			- Eastern Europe's re-integration with the west
			- Europe after the `cold war'
			- new European security structure
			- the `common European house' and alternative
     			  views
			- the `European pillar in the Alliance' (NATO)
			- Europe's role in international affairs
		- and much more . . .

Language(s):	 all European languages should be accepted, but
                 preference might be given to languages which are
		 more widely understood.

Distribution:	 Worldwide.

As an added benefit, the soc.culture.europe would be able to provide a
forum also to those European countries currently without their own
newsgroup. Further, crosspostings with European content could be
restricted to go to s.c.e, instead being crossposted to all European
newsgroups, thus reducing overall net.jamming.

Please, restrict your responses to news.groups or send me e-mail to
[email protected]

Thank you.

Thanks to all who voted. I hope I did not overlook any vote. If this
happened, I hope it only happened on a scale that would not invalidate
the vote. I apologize also for not having checked each and every single
address whether it is not a separate account. I hope I found all
doubles.

Regards,
