It was originally founded after WWII as a peace initiative. The idea was that with close cooperation between countries, military conflicts would be made impossible.
An immoral, corrupt and socially corrosive construct. Its origins lie in a deep and bitter mistrust of accountable democracy. Its aim is the destruction of the nation state. The terrible price the world is already paying for this project can be seen in the decimation of fish stocks due to the lunacy of the common fisheries policy, the ruination of developing world economies by EU trade tarifs, and the insanity of the common agricultural policy.
