    i personaly think the biggest problem of EU is that states in it are not united properly. We dont see EU as one country but as many countries and thats the problem we should be more united to become one state.

    Brilliant explanation. I think the brits always felt powerless and hated by the rest of Europe, and unfortunately that influenced our decision when we voted out. I don’t think we ever really did that well out of it anyway.

    It's existence is good because that means we have finally achieved peace in Europe, but personally I would say it's become more of a solidarity thing. Some countries benefit from the EU while others would be better off without it. It's beaucracy has become so large and complex that it's impossible to leave it without consequences. Then there are mutual benefits, you can only get these if you agree to everything else.

    Let me see... is EU better than no EU? Let’s start with negatives. It’s fucked. 27 countries having their own targets. Not all on a single currency. They can leave when they want. Different health care, tax, political, labor systems and so on... A central government that bogs itself down. Far too many skeptics. Let’s see what out there is better? USA? Don’t get sick. A federal government with too much power and manipulated by big money... no... bought by big money. Idiocracy taking hold. 1/2 the Country hating the other 1/2. what Europeans fear the EU will become. The UK? Small and may fall apart too. Russia? Please..ö. Lack of freedoms, high corruption... China? Riiiight. As long as you are part of the borg, do exactly as your told and of not some other ethnicity, then you‘ll love it.

    I think the EU could benefit more from two things: a greater democratization of the council and the overall lawmaking process, and less lawmaking in general. The United States doesn't need more democratization (I'm even partial to the idea that we should return to the State legislatures choosing our Senators instead of popular vote), but we could certainly use less lawmaking in general. Indeed, a good case could be made that we need a "House of Repeals" whose sole purpose is to look for laws that are no longer needed.

    I like the idea of EU and I want it to succed But I prefer it to focus more on trade, consumer rights and the environment, than meddling with how countries construct their workforces For example EU want to inforce a minimal wage limit which on paper sounds great, especially for those countries where unions are weak and workforces are being exploited by rich powerful companies, but in the Nordic countries this would ruin their whole otherwise well functioning workforce system where there is NO minimal wage, but strong unions who make sure all workers get great deals If EU inforces such laws to all countries their would be no incitament to join a union in the nordic and one-by-one all the benefits unions have fought and won for its workers will dissapear because members will leave the unions and the unions will not have a strong fundament anymore to negotiate with the employers anymore I like EU, but I do not like the one-size-one-system-fits-all approach which does not work well for all countries and cultures

    Common trade is good, all the rest is only a burden that prevents smaller countries from developing. When our transport companies have started to become a big deal in transport, UE made a lot of regulations that nearly destroyed them.

    There are things I dislike very strongly about the EU, especially the fact that we do not protect our way of life anymore, we do don't protect outer borders and foreign influence is destroying everything we have fought for in the past. I fear this will kill the EU eventually, kill the peaceful way of life we achieved. One is not racist by not approving hateful ideologies from less developed countries. Some countries are pretty much being colonized, this will inevitably lead to blood. The biggest enemy of the civilized world at the moment is very clear, our acceptance of Islam. Islam is at present akin to Christianity a few hundred years ago, being used by power hungry people as a tool of control to spread violence and death in the name of god. At present Islam should be banned in the EU because the ideology is against the constitution of all EU countries, Islam's very nature is against democracy, denying basic rights and freedoms to it's followers, mainly women of course. I will never respect a muslim, I will never turn a blind eye to the atrocities this religion commits on a daily basis just because someone will call me a racist because of it. If wanting to protect our peace and democracy is racist, then I'm the biggest racist there is. Also, since when does not supporting an ideology make one racist? I don't care about anyone's race, I don't care about anyone's skin color and not all Arabs are muslim.

    In my opinion, yes - the EU is definitely worth it. It's no secret that we are stronger together as people. On the topic of the Union being flawed and all, that's obviously true, but then again...what in this world isn't flawed? But given the fact that the differences are quite big in terms of taxes and min wage on the eastern side of the block, I am more than in favor of closing the gap between the good standard of living in the west and the not so optimal one in the east...To me, in 2021 Europe to still have min wages between 200 - 400 euros while the average rent is about the same in bigger cities, that's just unacceptable. I really hope we'll get to see a stronger and more unified Union over the next decades.

There is only economic slavery from the EU and a very subtle redirection of blame to the weakest members. With the deutche bank's unbelievably huge debt and weak military and migration protection policies we know that when shit hits the fan we will be ultimately alone until we are required to make useful sacrifices again. To hell with Europe I hope we get a politician with balls big enough to get us out as soon as possible

So no surprise this advert is still on here Here we go look at the way they describe a Defence Force. ( run by who ) did you elect them. Do they answer to you ? So when your son is dying on the battlefield.. Who you elected can't do bugger all about it. Will we not called liars for saying eu army..???. Come on Hardy bloody neutral.

    1) EU without Russia is imperfect. 2) Russians have to solve problems with Putin's regime and establish a normal democracy 3) EU have to be less leftist

      Russia is direct competitor, Europe and Russia operates on different levels. The EU and it's member states runs on a fair democratic system, Russia don't... And the EU needs more leftism, at least economic leftism. We need better protection from mega corps.

    EU at the moment has issues. However abandoning would be a disaster. Most EU countries are fairly small and will not win against other superpowers like USA, China, Japan etc. However EU needs to be more integrated and have some common structures, like a common army, common healthcare system, common pension system, common security sytem, common immigration system etc, while also providing nations with freedom of policy on other aspects, like taxation, minimum wage. Also EU needs to be more democratic. The EU commision basically does whatever the hell wants without european citizens having a clue and puts people in positions of power the average EU citizen has no clue who they even are.

      Besides whiteout the eu it would be even worse, would you like rather that instead of having an impact on the decisions made, America does it? America / China / Russia will all jump at the chance to break up the eu to increase their influence.

      The eu is still a democracy, in every member state you can vote for eu parlimtarly elections so no not old men in France, Germany or Belgium decide but every member state does.

      without the eu it would be even worse, we need further integration and even federalization and leave nato to truly get rid of American influence and become the dominant superpower.
