Do you want a united Europe?

Dear Europeans,

I want to take the opportunity to ask the question, all our politicians should have asked. Do you want Europe? I mean not as a union of many sovereign states! Instead I mean a united Europe. Many people are talking about it. The media sometimes use it to scare, sometimes to inpire people. Is the dream of Europe, that is dreamed by many politicians really the dream of the people? I personally think a Europe build by the people is the only way to restore our reputation and our future. In my opinion, we should start a national assembly right away and build something the world hasn't seen before. It maybe take us 10 years, but sooner or later we have to start if we don't want our future shattered by old politicians who are obsessed with their power. What do you think?

    Jun 14 2013: First of, everything I heared, you find in this project of the european commission:
    https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/futurium/en/listfutures

    And here is mine:
    https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/futurium/en/content/end-global-warming-and-tax-evaders-easy-way-or-hard-way

    But yes of course we want Europe! Together we can stay strong! What we don't want is everybody being so self- centered. We want power to the people and no managers as politicians. Homage to George Papandreou for this wake up call!

    Stop the selfcentered idio and start by participating in the project above!

    Quoting is my new principle in ending comments.

        Jun 17 2013: Alright, that seems great! I don't have the time yet to read it all now, but I will (maybe you should add something like an abstract). I have been so free to add a supplemental policy and keywords so your article is easier to find in category search. For a better world! ^^
