Rise of the new European Superstate.

The new European superstate has just been born, legally speaking, by the signing of the Lisbon Treaty.

From Europe News this article, an excerpt:

Today the European Union leaders signed the Lisbon Treaty. This treaty gives the EU the constitutional form of a state. These are the ten most important things the Lisbon Treaty does:

1. It establishes a legally new European Union in the constitutional form of a supranational European State.
2. It empowers this new European Union to act as a State vis-a-vis other States and its own citizens.
3. It makes us all citizens of this new European Union.
4. To hide the enormity of the change, the same name – European Union – will be kept while the Lisbon Treaty changes fundamentally the legal and constitutional nature of the Union.
5. It creates a Union Parliament for the Union’s new citizens.
6. It creates a Cabinet Government of the new Union.
7. It creates a new Union political President.
8. It creates a civil rights code for the new Union’s citizens.
9. It makes national Parliaments subordinate to the new Union.
10. It gives the new Union self-empowerment powers.

Further very interesting detail can be found in the article.

Hat tip to Atlas Shrugs, where I first saw the article.

  1. That is not just a little frightening! I would argue that the coming death of Europe, and especially the overwhelming of Britain by Islam, is largely a result of the establishment of the Common Market and the rise of Europeanism. Europeanism-and the accompanying globalism-destroyed the traditional patriotism and cultural connections in favor of a Disney-like charicature of Europe. Nobody would fight for a Disney mask of something. This just makes it more dangerous, since now the Union can work its will over the objections of those who say “enough“.

    Thanks for posting that, Morris!

  3. It’ll be interesting to see how this turns out. I suspect that the new EU will be too wracked with internal chaos to become the next evil empire…
