New citizens to the EU should undergo a cermony much like the american, where the theme of the ceremony is to honor european values as freedom, equality and scientific progress. Likewise should european school children have time set aside for learning about the foundations of which the continent has been built.
In an age where Europeans have sheded their religious spirituality for the most part, what is better than to replace this void by a semi-spiritual approch to the european values. The citizens of the EU should believe that the EU stands for something positive, which influences them in their every doing and creates a continent of aware freedom loving citizens, that value western values and work towards keeping them on honoring them.
