Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Putting aside the likelihood that the Eurozone crisis shows every potential for breaking the EU as we know it - which argues for concentrating on "socialism in one country" - whichever country you live in...

I think we've reached a stage where EU state building in the sense of more transfer of powers from nations to the EU is no longer viable, politically or morally.

Two things are needed, IMO:

  1. How do we push the Parliament up the ranking?

  2. How do we start getting the Parliament elected on the basis of European parties, rather than national ones?

(Possibly 2 comes before 1.)
