      "Should we end it"
      Before even watching this, I already know why it should be ended ASAP. Simple: The only reason it ever existed was so that they had an excuse to open the borders and flood your labor markets. Why else would a bunch of rich bitches go in for something like that? You didn't think it was about peace or love or unity or anything bullshity like that did you? IT WAS ABOUT MONEY! Dirty, filthy, money! YOUR'E money going into THEIR pockets!

    4:10 It's not "protection" it's "guns", it's not "traditionally" it was "incidentally". The situation called for it once. Ever since, usa thinks it owns the place. Despite letting the holocaust happen through refusal to help sooner. Lord knows the rest of Europe tried without help, they had no choice. EU doesn't need to be reminded of the country with a society in its infancy and orange eye-sore president. D:< We don't need your weapons anymore, we've moved on.

Euro is not for everyone because the economies without heavy industries such as Greece cannot support such and expensive currency efficiently. So the only one who doesn't give a fuck about other is Germany and yeah we should break away from this Union.

    This video based on ideas, not concrete.
    1. Euro :
    Eurozone is the lower growth economic zone of the world. In 20 years, euro caused impoverishment of all Nations that compose it (50 000 €/year/person in France, 75 000 €/year/person in Italy, report CEP, german think tank). Euro is not adapt to different economy of different Nations which compose it (example : for French economy, IMF indicated that euro is overrate to 6,9%) which leads to decreasing of export, its kills French economy competitiveness. France lose between 300 and 500 billions € every year (report CEP, german think tank) because dearness of euro for French Economy. During Euro crisis, Greece didn't can absorb the shock by depressing his currency and for "save" it, the Troïka (ECB, IMF, European Commission) established a austerity policy that kills greek social system. The Greeks debts is higher after euro crisis that before : 177% (2015) > 181% (2018) of GDP. I don't talk problem of Target 2 (950 billions € (2019)).
    2. European Treaties :
    This article espacially kills economy, social system, health system, scholar systeme, etc... of countries in Europe :
    Article 63 TFEU : authorizes relocation and tax evasion
    France : 115 billions € (2015, Statista report) 100 billions € in average on 20 years (since euro).
    Cause massive unemployment because dearness of euro and authorizes relocation.
    Article 121 TFEU : BEPG (Broad Economy Policy Guidelines)
    Gives instructions to Nations for destroy social system (pension system, decrease unemployment benefit and access conditions to unemployment, decrease minimum wage, Labor code (Destroying Labor Protection (Macron and El-Komery Laws in France, Hartz Laws in Germany > precariousness has doubled in Germany), etc...), health system (decrease health budget), scholar systeme (decrease scholar budget), etc...
    Article 42 TFEU : CFSP (Common Foreign and Security Policy) under NATO Policy (American Policy) which is agressive against espacially Russia, so EU safeguard the Peace ???
    No independant Policy Defense.
    Example : Poland bought F-16, F-35 American fighter jet instead European fighter jet (French Rafale, European (Germany, Italy, Spain, UK) Eurofighter Typhoon or Swedish Gripen, where is European solidarity, European Community ???
    3. Economic power
    CETA, TAFTA, MERCOSUR-EU, etc... All Free Trade Treaties killing European economy because she puts in frontal competition European worker and rest workers of the world (often cheap labor), where is loyal competition ???
    An else example : in Croatia, European Commission funded a bridge with Chinese Company for his construction, where is European solidarity, European Community ?
    4. European fund
    Without States, European fund wouldn't exist. Every year, France lose 10 billions euro net for example and in the same time,
    Poland buy American fighter jet, European Commission finances Bridge in Croatia with Chinese Company, etc.... Find the mistake ?
    EU is a total failure and as USSR, will fall.

    The thing with EU is that anything positive that has to offer is questioned hardly by their actions atm.
    I mean in smaller countries in EU, EU tried really hard to control their productivity,in some cases even terminating productivity or making it extremely weak.Then it's the freedom that it's questioned,if you are supposed to follow the immigration laws of EU but EU denies to help you with immigration,how much of freedom does it feel you have? You feel more like a pawn rather than a member.
    Finally it's also about the army,one of the major reasons of being part of EU is the military benefits,but what if the benefits of central Europe is against a smaller member of EU (starring at the Turkey issue ferociously). EU is a weird spot that gives a sense that they will leave smaller members out of the party if it's for their greater good,so smaller countries question themselves,if we are about to left off why not leaving it ourselves now.

    I think the European Union is actually just Germany, France and their economic colonies. In China, the richest provinces give other provinces a lot of money every year for construction in order to enjoy this unified market and to enjoy the education and training of poor provinces. Talent, cheap resources and more.
    If there is no such money and China has no dominant nation, then this is economic colonization.

      @Nick Mykytyn Do you know that China was at least 7 countries with independent culture more than 2200 years ago? What I'm trying to argue is "Can the EU unite European civilization", isn't China itself a great example? China is definitely happy to see a united Europe, but in fact Europe has begun to split. If the solution is to follow China's approach, rich provinces subsidize poor provinces (such as Xinjiang and Tibet) ,In fact, there are very few separatists in these areas than the past days .

    All right so I have difrent opinion about Europe union.
    First EU don't have any soldiers. Every country has their own and don't have to help other coutres with them. Sure all the countries must help but that help don't mean support with soldiers or gear, that help can be just some politics speech.
    Second some country's have more power than other in EU parlament. In UE parlament nobody is listening to country's from central Europe. EU parlament is saying snails are fih to make France pay less taxes but in the same time adding more taxes to central Europe countries.
    Third: no enforcement to law. In 2015 when EU have refugees crisis every country have to take some refugees but central Europe country's like Hungary or Poland said no. Hungary even build a wall around their borders to not let refugees in. In fact every refugees was sent to western countries and Skandynawia.
    Fourth: UE costs very much.
    Every country every year must pay gigantic loads of money. The UE have a lots of officials that have payed very much and they actually do nothing. Sometimes they check some documents but no more. You said the UE is sponsoring culture and other stuff but every country would make this if they really want. For example one country is giving to country every year 200 bilions of euro and after that they get 100 billions to build a good streets. But they oslo have to pay officials of UE and that's very big cost becouse its a lot of them while actually you can do everything in Internet.
    At the end I want to tell you shengen is NOT UE and there are countries that are in UE but no in shengen and vice versa.
    Oslo every European country can be superpower alone some painter from Austria show that.

    I think that we shouldn't have countries at all.
    It's impossible but I hope that it will happen.
    I hope that people wouldn't care about money because really it is not important at all humans made it important for them but we would have high chance of living if we would stop wasting resourses to things that we don't actually need then maybe we could build or research something that will help a lot.
    I think that other countries should give each others resourses that they need.
    I don't care at all that who is stronger or who is richer or bigger I just hope that some countries would not be so selfish or wouldn't care so much for their own power or strength.
    I dont care about religions but that they should come to terms with one another and not use it for wars without any reason.

    In india we have 22 offical languages and 1600+dialects language tweaks every few miles! Europeans divided and ruled our country and brainwashed the Muslims and made separate 3 countries else it would be a bigger country then china in all aspects. Mind it
    U will have to pay price for especially UK guys .(i am writing muslims because out of 3 .2 countries were turned islamic countries and hindu majority still stayed a secular country despite technically losing its land in name of islamic republics

    Europe is good, a collection of sovereign states that cooperate on all manners of things, allowing people more freedom for tourism, study, leisure, commerce, business etc amongst the individual nations. The eu however is not good, its not a collection of peoples and ideals with a common goal, a common belief, and a will to help each other. It abuses its stated goal and becomes evermore power hungry yet completely lacking any real purpose. Let's take a look at the euro: it empowered few northern European economies by robbing the PIIGS, let's see about cost, what indeed it costs Europeans to fund the whole sharade? Now cast an eye at the red tape developed by the eurocrats... Mind boggling indeed. Some call it the EUSSR, but that is undervaluing, understating what is going on, between them the ever over reaching branches of the eu gravy train politicians are strangling businesses, whilst spending tax payer money o themselves and misguided activities all across the continent. The eu budgets are notorius for not having had audits for years. It's corrupt and has to go, the sooner the better. And we haven't even started on the treachery and the arrogance of the undemocratically, unremevoable, appointed representatives, or indeed the failings of the ECB, yet they have the guts to bind us in the MES? Disgraceful.
    I will never forget the treatment, especially during the covid 19 crises, the eu inflicted on Italy. Or the way they rejected the Irish referendum, or they way they wished to punsih the UK for having a democratic will to exit before things turned uglier than they already were.

    Peace security and shared identity? Lewl. How's that working out when you have unelected bureaucrats ruling by fiat?

    They needed to stop all the heavy handed bullshit, and yes, actually put down a 15-20 year plan to slowly help/improve/upgrade the countries that aren't keeping up. Instead of screaming at them about loans and causing discord.

    That's the problem with more and more unchecked power - humans can't handle it (well, the ones that seek that power are generally unfit to wield it) and it almost always degenerates to chaos.

    6 months of negotiations should do it, but it's too late now. Too much water not enough bridge.

    The EU is so good for Greece. Our economy got absolutely destroyed because of the Euro. Force to take loan after loan and impose insane austerity measures that had more detrimental effects rather than help the situation. As far as national security? What a fucking joke. Erdogan is literaly claiming part of our sea and land borders, creating unconventional war by sending hundred of thousand of illegal immigrants to flood the borders and we got literally 0 help from the EU. Germany didn't even condemn Turkey for their aggression. We know one thing as Greeks. In the end you have to rely by yourself. Everyone else is your enemy or tries to take advantage of you. The last country we are going to trust is Germany.. for multiple reasons (Didn't even pay a single cent from WW2 reparations yet and are involved in 90% of the scandals regarding economic corruption in Greece). So ye.. FUCK THE CORRUPT EU.

    So poorer countries get money from richer countries and somehow the richer countries would be 12% worse if they didn't allow that? Pure Bs, and i'm from one so called poorer country.

    • SUM1DOIDE †
      SUM1DOIDE † 19 hours ago

      ​@Seferdi I'm not arguing against the EU, i understand the need and i agree with your first paragraph. You are stating the ups but there is a line where the money allocated to poorer countries is too much and isn't beneficial due to corruption and lack of those positive effects in the investment. The period of when german, french (etc) companies started opening in EU countries coincides with the period of the beginning of the EU but the effects of other funds and subsidies that are given by the EU can't be measured. The potencial of Europe without the EU "socialism" can't be measured. Southern Europe countries have super high debt and many are corrupt (like Greece, Portugal) which doesn't really make those exports, wages to increase that much.
      If not having renewable energy will be costier in the future is also a reach, that doesn't mean the transition should be so fast. Also batteries are needed for that transition to take place and batteries require A LOT of fossil fuels. Also, nuclear energy works fine in France.
      That humanitarian help has no end, the supposed and future threats due to African countries being unable to combact climate change and other interests are also at stake when it comes to ilegal immigration (that can transform into legal immigration depending on the laws governments pass) will make Europa a small place for so much people, and ethnic europeans a minority, of course. But at least there's peace.

    • Seferdi
      Seferdi 19 hours ago

      @SUM1DOIDE †
      Not having renewable energy will be way costlier in the future. Especially if a country cannot provide also expensive fossil fuels (which are heavily subsidised in most countries).
      We accept refugees mostly as a humanitarian effort not guild. Tensions are rising because of the migration crisis, that is true, but it would probably be much worse without the EU.
      Than again this is outside the capacity of a TVclip comment.

      Thank you for responding to my first response!

      @SUM1DOIDE † SUM1DOIDE † SUM1DOIDE † single markets are systems with no trade barriers, which means that all members need for example: partially shared standards in terms of health and safety regulations at least (p.e. USA compared to the states alone).
      Currency is indeed mostly irrelevant but I was not talking about that, I was talking about demand for export, par example: if a poor nation remains poor they support less people able to buy a German car.
      Freedom of movement/work is unique to Europe* in there are for example no visas required to work which is especially helpful in for example:
      seasonal workers with changing employers.
      (*This again requires unified regulations)
      Companies require(before exporting), again, workers and customers alike, as well as a financial system, logistics, and other infrastructure provided by the EU to all its members (especially where the government cannot provide sufficiently)
      Besides a single market is very valuable for demand inside the market.

    • SUM1DOIDE †
      SUM1DOIDE † 20 hours ago

      ​@Seferdi There isn't a single market in Europe, there is a global market. People in the U.K. can buy the same products people in Europe buy, from Europe or from Asia or America. The currency isn't related.
      Freedom of movement exists in a bigger scale since the industrial revolution, and that Exchange (workers for money) is bad for cultural reasons and because of the challenges created for the poorer countries, who need more migrants from even poorer countries, outside of the EU.
      Exports are made by companies, not by European funds. European funds are normally to prevent countries from certain activities (like farming and fishing), to build schools and hospitals, and things like renewable energy (that has skyrocket the cost in electricity everywhere in Europe).
      Saying there is only peace with the EU is a reach, especially when the Europe population has to accept refugees because of supposed guilt for wars in the Middle East.

      Sustainable policy is important in every aspect of society, because by definition unsustainability creates problems.
      Problems need to be solved, most of the time at huge cost or with new technology.
      And zero sum trade is not sustainable.
      To fix unsustainabilities in the world I would recommend to implement left leaning policies, but my reasoning would break the boundaries of a TVclip comment.
      Whether you agree or not:

      Which is more important? Freedom or Safety? Unless you're Jeffrey Epstein, the safest place you can go is a solitary confinement cell in a maximum security prison. I seriously doubt that you would voluntarily go there, though.
      The problem is, when you give a government the authority to restrict freedoms in the name of safety, it's very hard to hold the government accountable when these measures fail. In Germany, they just passed legislation to allow the police to break into people's homes and install trojan viruses on their computers.
      When this doesn't stop violence in Germany, do you think for one second that the German government will remove this policy? No. They're going to demand more power and the cycle repeats.
