As a citizen of Europe I am not satisfied with many adjustments that the parliament makes over and over, often also with a lot of lack of knowledge about what this is about, and also literally in the smallest corners of people’s interests, to name 2 ‘recent’ examples (sorry if this post is a little long to read. by the way, link to EU parliament public contact mails are at the bottom for those who have good counter-arguments that go against the proposed regulations or those who can express their displeasure in a charismatic way )
\- ‘Arcticle 13 (now 17) for those who are not aware of this, in short this is more or less an internet censorship for European users, who wants to find out more about what this content is about, feel free to learn more [here](https://www.wired.co.uk/article/what-is-article-13-article-11-european-directive-on-copyright-explained-meme-ban).
So it comes down to the fact that certain non-European websites are no longer accessible thanks to the insertion of these regulations.
I myself have come across a number of times over the last 2 – 3 years (usually foreign news websites) where you could read a short text describing something that said you ‘can’t visit the website because of protecting the european internet user their privacy details…’ But for all other websites we can access we always see a window in which we have to make choices whether or not we want to pass on our private data to third parties via cookies, so wtf.
\- ‘Speed pedelecs’ In europe this is the name for Ebikes that go faster than 25’km/h’, a specific group of bicycles in this category gained more and more popularity, the fast e-fully mtb. At the time, the range for these bikes was as wide as the 25’km/h’ category,
but our well-paid friends in parliament put a stop to that joy with new regulations, so that there is currently only 1 manufacturer of fast e-fully mtb in europe, and the price for such a bike is literally double than before those regulations. ( From the past 4 – 5k eur to now 8 – 12k or higher )
The ‘need’ to have to raise these prices as manufacturers and dealers has therefore caused most manufacturers to exclude European shopkeepers/customers from these fast e-fully mtb bicycles as the balance between the necessary actions to stay in order with the European regulations and I suspect the profits.
These schemes were introduced because there was an obligation throughout Europe that the fast e-bikes had to be registered and therefore had to undergo physical adjustments, number plate holders, with specific type of lights, specific this, specific parts, everything specific, for most bikes this is no problem, but a fully mtb must meet certain things to retain its charm and fully-properties, it is not the intention that you always lose a rear-view mirror or other fancy mandatory parts while cruising in the woods at 40 ‘km/h ‘..
Of course these obligations could be ‘specified’ a bit more per bike category with some extra time to decide, but our best friends in parliament thought a more superficial regluation was the better solution…
Like many other decisions they make, both examples have been proposed and accepted, with a specific goal in mind & not enough knowledge, with more expansive consequences that, I think, lots of Europeans feel frustration for at some point (including regulations I didn’t mention though ).
speaking of most europeans, most europeans were or still are not aware of these two or other adjustments that define a ‘democratic’ union for the so-called good of the citizens.
On top of that, although journalists closely follow all politicians, they never report on this until such a regulation is proposed/accepted/refused,
the regulations for the bicycles were milked out in the media for a very long time, but I barely remember 2 articles informing us about ‘Article 13’
I have no doubt that we will receive little or no information about this proposal for [the crypto regulations](https://cryptopotato.com/european-union-outlaws-all-anonymous-crypto-transactions-involving-exchanges/) in the media, perhaps at most a message, after the regulations are accepted, with a title such as ‘New regulation puts an end to becoming a millionaire on collective base’
Nor can we count on this proposal being eventually (and surprisingly) rejected like the recent other crypto proposal was rejected.
At the moment it does not seem a bad idea, who lives in europe or who does not live in europe and also does not agree with this legislation, to contact the assigned members of parliament with valid and correct arguments to discourage them from supporting this proposal . I am not going to comment on the differences, but if this proposal is accepted, it will most likely mean less crypto investments, so perhaps fewer green candles.
On [this website](https://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/search/advanced?name=&groupCode=&countryCode=&bodyType=ALL), if you know the name of the members from your country, or if you just want to contact all of them, you can easily find their contact mail via this.
You may think that sending an email won’t make much of a difference, but in the past I’ve also done this to share my dissatisfaction with certain regulations that ban games like [Mario Kart](https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nintendo.zaka&hl=nl&gl=US) for mobile phones, or that caused a lot of adjustment in games like rocket league, these regulations were for the prevention of ‘gambling addictions’ through cases that you could purchase to obtain items that you ‘may or may not’ knew in advance which item you would acquire, this is gambling right here, but I received an answer very soon afterwards with a targeted response to the arguments I mentioned, so no pre-made message or anything. I can only recommend that while we still have the chance to share as many useful and appropriate arguments as possible with these people in parliament, it is still better than doing nothing and once it is too late it is too late anyway, I can’t afford me that fast e-fully now, and if they make crypto regulations much stricter and stricter it looks like this won’t help me quickly towards [the bike](https://www.m1-sporttechnik.de/en/configurator-br/) lol.
It’s one thing to fight crime, which I totally agree with, but it’s an entirely different matter to tackle it in a way that one treats ordinary people the same way as these criminals they want to hit, not everyone break the law but they believe that anyone can break the law once they decide, prevention measures because everyone has potential secrets, and I don’t agree with that at all, people who want to follow the law should not be treated as those who don’t do, and it is not a solution to introduce regulations that create new legislation that will treat everyone at that level. In my opinion, this is sloppy, lazy and negligent politics.
In case anyone wants to, I’ve shared the link to the page of the members of the european parliament a little more above in my post but if you don’t want to search you can also find the link here: [https://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/search/advanced?name=&groupCode=&countryCode=&bodyType=ALL](https://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/search/advanced?name=&groupCode=&countryCode=&bodyType=ALL)Friday, April 1st, 2022 at 00:09 #206117conspicuous_user

I agree with almost everything you said except they dont understand crypto, actually it’s a very smart move to keep control of an emerging market
