Do you want a united Europe?
For most of the people the crisis conferences and discussions are too complex to understand. I think that Western Europe has generally underestimated the measure of corruption and manipulation in South and East Europe and they have to deal with it now. Maybe we should just slow down a little, instead of making the next decision, we could just consolidate and stabilize the situation. People feel a little forced, they may need some time to think. And as the next generation grows older, who was born in a more united Europe, they might think differently. To figure out which way Europe is going, will be a long process. I would hate to see Europe failing, but if this is what the people want, than we have to let happening it.

Do you want a united Europe?
I am an idealist probably, but I love to see Europe, the way this continent has developed recently. I love to sit around a table in Germany with my friends from Italy, Austria, Hungary and even Syria and talking in 3 different languages. This could not have been possible only 20 years ago. This led to the fact, that Europe was war free in the last 20 years, the longest peaceful period ever in the history of Europe. Forget about economic gain and benefits, this is the major goal of the EU. The fact that I was born in one EU country, working in another EU country really makes me feel like I am an EU citizen and that Europe is my home. It is a beautiful, safe and free place. EU is safer than the US and socially more appropriate (health care is provided on the highest possible standard to every citizen, socially very secure), what do you want more?

George Papandreou: Imagine a European democracy without borders
I really liked the speech and I do believe in the future of Europe as a hole. I also completely agree with the idea, that the future of the EU is not some economic bond, but an idea, that this piece of land belongs together and we should live peacefully around each other with respect and tolerance. These are the drivers that could empower future development. I love to say that I am from Europe instead of explaining where I was born and where I live at the moment. I love to travel and choose to stay where I want to live between Bukarest and Barcelona. I hope the difficulties with Greece and UK and etc. are not influencing Europe in a way, that we will have consider talking about borders in Europe again.
