The conservatives started the EU idea, the socialists took it over

In my previous post I briefly described the history of Polish 1989 transformation and its consequences. Today I'll write a few words about the birth of the second main topic in my blog - the European Union.

Uniting Europe

The whole process of uniting Europe was started after the Second World War by the conservatives whose only aim was to spread free market ideas. No one was thinking about any kind of political structures. Thanks to the birth of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951 states participating in the project got rid of all the economical problems caused by Hitler & Stalin. At first the left wasn't too happy about the economical unification ideas but in late seventies everything changed.

Leaders of The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) figured out that maybe it would be better to peacefully unite Europe with the USSR instead of conquering it, all the more that this last way wasn't really possible, when taking into consideration the condition of the Soviet Union. The best way to meet Soviet leaders' plans was to make Europe similar to the the USSR in as many areas and possible. People who were supposed to take care of it were Western socialists and communists, who became the main force in the European structures. They started the huge reconstruction process of the aims of the upcoming European Union. Economical unification started by the conservatives was supposed to give economical boost to all the states involved in it (and did its job well) and spread free market idea. Socialists' and communists' plans were different - they wanted to implement some Soviet patterns in the uniting Europe, such as, for example, central planning in various areas. Above all though they wanted to create one big European superstate.

Collapse of the Soviet Union

Unfortunately for the Western socialistic leaders, the right lung of the big European Home was killed in 1991 - the Soviet Union collapsed. The whole idea of a great socialism was seriously damaged but, luckily for the communists and socialists, not for long. They changed singboards and started their new project - the European Union. Their aim was clear and is being consequently realized - it's creating one European Superstate in which there would be no Spaniards, French or Poles but Europeans only. Current Europeans leaders, in their younger days hippies and anarchists enchanted by the Soviet propaganda, want to create a better, more "user-friendly", so to speak, version of the Soviet Union. After signing the Lisbon Treaty by the Czech Republic president Vaclav Klaus, they are closer than ever before.

Don't you think?

Hello there. I am an Asian here, Malaysian that is. However, I disagree that the EU is tantamount to USSR. EU is a much more organized and civilised organistaion as compared to the latter. Anyways mayte, that is just my two-cents and I mean no offence.

Hello, mate. Your two cents, and even three, are more than welcome here.

You are right that the EU is much better organized than the USSR but it is only thanks to the progress of time - the USSR leaders didn't have the chance to control people in so many aspects as the EU leaders nowadays have. The EU stick its nose in every single aspect of our life - creating tons of norms, certificates, even in such absurd areas as the proper size of banana. The EU tries to make everything exactly the same in all EU countries - the same rules, the same taxes in future, the same law system, the same version of history taught in schools (upcoming), the same size of potatoes. There is very little space for freedom and especially variety and it will get worse. I'll write more about that in next posts.

If you run a blog, Himmat Singh, feel invited to post a link here. Greetings!

Ok thanks man. Nice explanation. And yes. I do have a blog. Feel free to visit it at but I write on practically whatever comes to my mind, not on one particular topic only. :)
