There are good reasons to develop a federal Europe
"There are good reasons to develop a federal Europe"

"That the right wing wants to limit the democratic influence over the economy is naturally"

"Aftonbladet's leader board is the independent social democrat."

"the Battlefield of Verdun in northeastern France is one of Europe's magical places. From the western front there is nothing new. For 103 years ago was one of history's bloodiest battles here, in the trenches and forests around the French försvarsforten Douaumont and Vaux. "

"Nature has still not recovered, but feels bumpy and distorted. Themselves the leaves rustling in the trees, the lights and the smells are different. 800 000 soldiers dead, wounded or disappeared during the fighting and the lines of white card lacks the end of the year. "

"At the Douaumont has a so-called"

"Verdun is, in many ways, the European union's cradle. The first world war million dead, the second world war, industrial genocide, and desolate cities will never recur. No more war – never again Auschwitz."

"the most Important choice – pale candidates"

"On 26 may the EUROPEAN elections in a very different Europe than the one that rose from the ruins. War between states is unthinkable, human rights and the principles of a constitutional state are respected in almost the whole of the union. Together with the united states and China, the EU is one of the most important players in the global economy and we are the world's largest trading bloc and the largest donor of aid. Our prosperity and our freedom is a distant dream for the people in almost all over the world and states in the Eastern europe and in the western Balkans is in line for membership."

"Today's Europe, with open borders, trade and the reconciliation between the old arch-enemy is also a model for how other regions of the world would be able to organize themselves. Countries in Africa, Latin america and Asia have taken the impression and trying to build the corresponding regional organizations. But the EU has come furthest with its balance between supranational institutions such as the EUROPEAN commission and the european Parliament and the member states that have the real power."

"today, much of the joint come into disrepute. Domestic problems, blamed happy. "

"This is reflected in how the parties intend for the EUROPEAN elections in spring, a negative tone permeates the utspelen. Despite the fact that it is described as the most important european Elections ever, both socialists and conservatives have chosen toppkandidater with the heaviest assignments behind and who lack previous experience of the european Parliament."

"Impossible to solve in a national way."

"Within S got the experienced and recognised competent Mep Jytte Guteland find themselves overtaken by the former minister for migration Helene Fritzon. In addition, Guteland continues none of the five current P-field. "

"the Conservatives have gone even further and pokes his entire group. The list is topped by former party secretary Tomas Tobé, an excellent person, but it will take years before he learns to find in the Brysselkorridorerna. "

"Even the green Party poke down their two current parliamentarians, Jakop Dalunde and Bodil Valero for the benefit of Alice Bah Kuhnke and klimataktivisten Pär Holmgren. The main europapartiet "

"the Liberal genomklappning, we should not talk about. But as the parties 'lists, the Swedish group after the elections to be unique" inexperienced."

"The Swedish parties look to read the political map error. The european parliament is the EU's only directly elected institution and has, unlike the EU-the commission and the council of ministers a mandate directly from the citizens of Europe. Thus, parliament has an unrivalled democratic legitimacy."

"To talk about a federal Europe with more of supranationalism have been political suicide in Sweden ever since the yes side lost the referendum on the euro in 2003. But in reality it is a completely necessary development. The EU is squeezed between a hostile Russia, an expanding China and a nationalistic Donald Trump. If we do not want the superpowers to control and set in Europe, we must work together. "

"the Big idea remained as the climate issue or the refugee crisis is impossible to solve at the national level. In line with both the real and the political temperature is rising in the world, we need to in depth to realize that we need each other."

"the Nation state function in european politics is more and more the carrier of the nostalgia, and symbols, all real power requires cooperation with others. And it requires, in turn, compromises, common institutions and popular support. "

"the Politicians know this, but do not dare to take the debate because they are afraid of the voters. The result is that too great a proportion of the real power in the EU lies in the hands of officials and diplomats negotiating in smoke-filled rooms, without transparency. The EU's real democratic deficit is that the directly elected european Parliament has too little power, not too much."

"The irony is that the nation-state is making a comeback in the debate at about the same time as the show itself basically inept at dealing with the real problems of Europe's population is facing. The refugee crisis was largely a consequence of European unity broke down, you still get the EU debt högerpopulisternas rhetoric. Today, the economy is global, labour market the european but the policy to a large extent national. Thereby controls the capital policy instead of the other way around."

"That the right wing wants to limit the democratic influence over the economy is natural. Similarly, that the nationalists would prefer not to cooperate with people from other countries."

"But for the left, should the strategy be given."
