This idea of scrapping the concept individual nation states in the European Union was recently advanced by some European parliamentary leaders:
Former State Secretary for defense and Vice President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Organization for Security and European Cooperation, Willy Wimmer, says that this proposal is part a movement within the EU to erode individual, national, obstacles to larger EU strategies. Wimmer said recently:
“We face critical decisions in the European Union these days. I think there is a major obstacle to the development of the EU because Brussels – mainly France and Germany – want to get rid of the nation states. [Bringing together nation states] had been the founding principle in the European community as we know it since 1956. This principle [is something] that the Polish people, or the Dutch people, the Swedes, the Spanish and also the Germans are not willing to go astray from.”
This proposal would provide Brussels the power to impose policy and implement strategies that might otherwise face serious objection from some other EU member nations. Wimmer mentioned the recognition of Kosovo and the recent migrant quotas imposed on EU member states, as examples.
The big boys, like Germany and France, want to have the power to dictate to the rest of Europe how things are gonna go down. Essentially, France and Germany get to call the shots, backed up by their buddies, while the smaller countries, namely those in the East, just have to take whatever their German friends dish out. This move would result in a loss of sovereignty by yielding this simple majority to the West.
