A DOUBLE PROVOCATION: THE TRANSITION AND THE GLOBALIZATIONThe birth of PUR on the political scene of the country and its public manifestationin a democratic frame - formed and consolidated after the December of '89 period -represents an immediately answer, conscious and responsible for the multitude andcomplexity problems and challenges of transition to a market economy in Romania, in aquickly and deep changing world in which the dependencies and global connections have been multiplied and become over-determining. The world we live in is marked by theacceleration of the historical rhythm of the massive diffusion of goods and services,technologies, idea systems, behavior models, so that the incidents and global connectionsare overwhelming upon the individual and communities, local or national. Theglobalization "sock" was powerfully felt in economical, financial, informational,communicational, in all social life domains, affecting all developed or less developed,large or small countries.Interdependencies have become more tightly and more hardly to avoid, externinfluences imposing categorically not so little times, impossible to avoid its impact.So, in a decisive moment of history the human condition has once again risen as beingvery fragile and vulnerable having to answer at major, even tragic interrogations, under the sign of a general crisis; a crisis of resources, ideals, solutions.In Romania, the communism breakdown produced a huge historical whirlpool, adislocation of social structures and it generated an irresistible wish of innovation, of transformation in all domains of collective and individual existence, of institutionalsystem also. The democratization of political life frame and also the creation of some premises of transition to market economy have not been enough for Romanian society-entered on the post-communism changes way - to find its balance and force to join againto the development orbit.The Humanist message for the XXI century policy After a correct and closeanalysis of country realities, of the international life tendencies, of understanding thecauses and consequences of the process Romania was involved in, from the beginning of last decennium, PUR has asserted itself the mission to elaborate and propose ideas andsolutions in order to contribute to overpass the difficulties Romanian society have stillfaced to.PUR imperatively considers that political action excel hide bound-conjunctureand adherent vision which unfortunately corrupts political exercise of parties and thus it proposes another manner for policy to be done; not disregarding the citizen and abusing by his needs and expectations, but putting the real human in the center, always as purpose, never as object or manner of manipulation. Thus the humanist primordial andconstitutive dimension of the political message with which PUR comes out in front of citizens, of nation, becomes totally clear.PUR starts from recognizing the necessity of constituting and consolidating a powerful middle class based on private initiative and property, in order to solve the greatsocial problems generated by the apparition and perturbation between different classesand population categories. An enterprising class defined through an active attitude byeconomy; an entrepreneur class, not one of fund holders or profiteers who institute a newrelation between work and capital, individuals with managerial vocation and1
 
consciousness, distinguishing themselves as promoters of liberty and action spirit; theyare their own masters economically independent, having the consciousness of risk anddignity of their condition, but specially, having all dates in order not to be under theinfluence of tendencies of manipulation and moral perversion which always act in case of  precarious material conditions. The political doctrine recuperates in its interior thefundamental principles of the philosophical humanism, for which human represents thesupreme value; man - as social human being acting in certain historical conditions, towhom is not refused the intrinsic dimension of individuality; man - as complex, creative personality aspirating for his achievement of destiny. Pre-eminently it is a practicehumanism having no connection with the idealistic and utopian aspects of some ideaselaborated along the time, in different mystique-religious or laic variants and which havefailed into a circumstance humanism, not being able to contribute for solving the critical problem of human condition. The humanism that PUR demands itself from, exacerbatesneither absolute individualism nor hyper-collectivities, concepts that have appeared in thechildhood of the two antagonistic system, in wild capitalism, in the race after maximum profit, source of some social inequalities, on the one hand, and in the equalizedcommunism dictating upon the human needs, as an instrument of oppression andalienation on mass scale on the other hand.The real humanism has the origin in a social-liberal concept proposing and promoting politics inspired by its idea and values, harmonizing and binding individualinterests with collective ones, reconciling man with society, choosing a third way between capitalism and communism.In PUR opinion the political humanism is not a doctrine among others, either away of equidistant standing, between right and left, beyond the conventional differencesthat existed parties point it out. PUR meets again in the everlasting steam of Romanianand universal humanism values. Through an effective political dimension, moral, spiritualand ideal dimension of humanism, PUR gains a practice ancestor that is able and must prove itself the valences in an individual, community and national register, with generousopenings to universal and international scale.For PUR the fundamental human rights represent the substance itself of values, towhich the doctrine and its policy revolve rounds about, values laid down in Chart of Fundamental Rights from European Union: dignity, civil liberties, equality, solidarity,citizenship and justice. Thus the complete humanism conception that PUR shares is proved to be the project of an European edifice that reflects the conscious of the necessitythat - in integration process, not only economical, currency and institutional of our continent - the center, privileged position to be due effectively to citizen with real problems he has, but specially with political and social solves which are imposed.A new approach of relations between man and state, between man and powers thatconduct his existence, between man and institutes necessary implies the transition fromformal democracy to real one, the joining of political representatively with the one of immediate exercising of civic prerogatives.Thus, the forms and frames of participate democracy, of free choosing, of localinitiative and autonomy get a bigger importance in a society with a growing grade of decentralization and responsibility in managing of social resources and richness, for community and each citizen use. PUR nourishes the certitude that the transformation of the society and individual, development of some social relationships well-founded by2
