Eschatology[edit]

I think that the Spaak & Eschatology section should not be included for four reasons:

  1. The quote may be verified but its interpretation still is unverified
  2. Quotes should primarily be on wikiquote.
  3. It is a "tidbit" and has little to do with Spaak's political or social career
  4. For me it falls under WP:FRINGE/WP:UNDUE. That some fringe group believes this, is no reason to spend so much attention to it.

Au contaire, Spaak was a prime promotors of European unity, which is publicly recognized even by the EU itself. And this quote adds background to his achievements for students of Christian eschatology. --JNZ 08:40, 12 November 2007 (UTC)

Image P-H Spaak[edit]

The image is missing, can someone fix this or isn't there an image available ? Lars 07:28, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Authoritarian call for a strong man[edit]

Spaak is said to have uttered the following at an EU economic summit[citation needed]:

We [Europe] do not want another committee. We have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all

people [of Europe] and to lift us out of the economic morass in which we are sinking. Send us such a man and be he god or the devil we will receive him.

Could we have this included in the article? __meco (talk)
