I am very sceptic about Europe.
I wish Europe would be more opened for southern nations, more fair and that it would stick to the international law .. so that special cases like Kosovo wouldn’t occur. I don’t feel like I’m living in the European Union, but in an American one .. because Europe naturally accepts and realizes whatever USA suggests .. at least this is the way how I see it.
It seems to me that the European Union cannot compete with USA because it doesn’t defend its nations. I don’t feel the same connection, but only the influences of the past and resentments in the background. We are in the Union, but we’re still afraid of each other and keep our distance from other nations .. there is a rivalry, but not in a good sense.
I wish that more effort would be put on the friendships between countries, economically, culturally and religiously. There is a lack of understanding and knowledge about neighbour cultures. We don’t understand them, thus we’re afraid of them.
A possibe solution would be to change the curriculum in schools so that children would learn about the European Union there .. get to know foreign cultures, have the chance to see them .. and maybe in the future there would actually be a true European Union.
