    Greater Switzerland Just Might Take Off

    PressEurop 23 July 2010

    The Swiss far-right wants to expand the country by annexing German, French, Austrian and Italian border regions, reports Gazeta Wyborcza.

    The Swiss People’s Party (SVP) floated the idea in June but only now has submitted a draft proposal calling for necessary changes to the constitution to make the enlargement possible. The regions in question are the German state of Baden Württemberg, French departments Alsace, Savoy, Jura and Ain, Italian provinces Aosta, Como, Varese and Bozen and the Austrian province of Vorarlberg.



    If the SVP plan were implemented, Switzerland’s population would increase by 17 million (it currently stands at 7 million) with Stuttgart becoming its largest city. “We should facilitate integration of these regions which are suffering under the rule of the European political class that has no interest in them whatsoever. Their citizens have been looking jealously at our self-governing state and long for a democracy with human face”, explain SVP politicians.

    The Swiss authorities have not commented on the proposal which nevertheless caused much glee in the German embassy in Bern. Its employees are said to have been wondering when the Swiss will “start demanding access to the sea”. Their good humours disappeared at seeing the results of a poll conducted by the Swiss weekly Weltwoche. It showed that 63% of nearly 1,800 German, Italian and Austrian polled living in the border regions said they were in favour of joining Switzerland. Hardly surprising considering the fact that salaries in Switzerland are much higher than in, for example, Germany and that Germans already constitute a majority of lecturers at many Swiss universities.

    Hard to say. The sheer number of regions involved is a recipe for conflict, and it must be said that nationalism's great weakness historically has been its tendency to provoke conflict, often violent, over territorial disputes. Wilders has a similar idea to annex Flanders, btw.

    Whenever I hear of a country trying to “annex” somewhere else I immediately think in military terms, which is clearly out of the question here.

    However, the most worrying aspect to all of this for me is that 63% of the foreign nationals concerned would be favourable to this idea if they could earn more money by becoming Swiss.

    Is this really all their nationality means to them? Something they can exchange for a higher salary???

    Yes, in some cases annexation means military attack, but not always. Cities or states can annex parts of others using peaceful means. Sometimes the opposite occurs. The Croatian Serbs voted to secede from Croatia, and Croatia responded with ethnic cleansing. I'd hope these seceding regions wouldn't experience similar violence, but this stuff is always dangerous with Continental Europeans.

    However, the most worrying aspect to all of this for me is that 63% of the foreign nationals concerned would be favourable to this idea if they could earn more money by becoming Swiss.

    Mexicans are rabid nationalists yet come to America for higher wages. It's a conundrum in a sense, I suppose. Call it cognitive dissonance: 'I love my country. I can't wait to leave it.'

    Why would any nation want to triple its population by annexing foreign territories?

    Maybe the some of the French and Italian territories would be better in Switzerland, but Alsace, Baden-Württemberg, and Austrian lands? I think that's just a tad too much.

    Swiss Expansion into France, Germany, Austria and Italy

    I think the first four words says it all, " The Swiss far-right wants"... Instead of the "far-right" perhaps a more descriptive phrase might be, "Ridiculous Right". I'll believe it, if and when it happens...

    @wittwer, you have made it dead obvious that you dislike right-wing ideologies and parties. That's fair enough, your business. But would you care to explain what exactly and why is it so ridiculous about a greater Switzerland, instead of simply expressing your disdain?

    Much of this is based off of the Greater Alemannia concept. I agree with uniting all the Alemannic under one state, but I do not agree with them bringing in Italians and French. This is a bit much, it's like Hitler invading Czechloslovakia. Almost 12 million out of the 17 million that are going to be annexed are German. Why not make it 12/13?
