Who ever that thinks that the Eu or any other of these bloc states are on the edge of giving up there power to the nation states; surely don't live in reality. They don't understand that the eu is the allies big win of wwII that they get to mold in there views. See both sides wanted to take over europe and that's why there was wwI and wwII. Really there was 3 sides, 1# The transnationalist(businesses,) 2# the globalist socialist, and 3# the marxist. Hitler wanted to form his "eu" if he won to within his idea of it. One that was white that had european values. See world war II was fought over what kind of eu it would be. Hitler wanted one that had european culture(germany being the center piece) and had closed borders, but still within the global government. He wanted the white race to survive. Who won(allies) believes that the white race should be mixed out into one race. Yes, the allies fought for one race under one world government. If Hitler had WON the new world order would of been controlled by white people. Hitler had our interest at heart, but the allies wanted one uniform race. Stalin was even more extreme then most of the allies and wanted his one race, one culture. But with a twist; he wanted all to be forced equal no matter. With a iron fist. This is the reality of our world. It was going to happen one way or another, but differences in who controls it and how it plays out. Look at the world as a whole you can start to understand why I've come to this conclusion. Our leaders are now working on flooding our nations with the third world and going about there goal as the victors of the great white war. There goal is one race, one culture under a world government. If you think this is a crock then what's the EU, Union of South American nations, African union, Pacific forum, Asean, ect besides bloc regional control of nations modeled the same way as the states within the United states. People like Reagan, George HW Bush and George W Bush have spoken about a new world order. The president of the Eu has said that this is the way it's going to be and that no one nation will ever have to go through any problem a lone again. A long as the other regional states leaders...Go and read up and you will find this to be true.
