“A more thorough analysis of the many weaknesses and shortcomings of the confederal system of that time would make clear that today’s European Union reveals exactly the same flaws. However, somewhat different from the case in America – where it took only eleven years to understand that they had to replace the Confederation with a Federation – we in Europe have been floundering since 1950 with sticking plasters on the stinking wounds of our own European confederal system.”
Leo Klinkers, The European Federalist Papers

“Because society makes its own governmental shapes; when a governing power wants to control society from the top-down, society will assess this and will either accept it or not. If not, society will resist one way or another, openly or underground – to eventually win, always.”
Herbert Tombeur, The European Federalist Papers

“Exactly the internal and external economic, social and even military or policing challenges are incentives for Europe to cope with the increasing threats of growing competition by creating a federal Europe. The administrative enlargement, widening the governmental scale, is Europe’s pre-eminent trump card. It is highly necessary to play that trump card by creating a Federation.”
Herbert Tombeur, The European Federalist Papers

“We have to choose urgently for a change that will lead Europe towards a promising future. Investing in change requires endeavors. Merging our European powers, now divided and weak. Change in a European sense: to climb a mountain with a splendid view on the promised land and then descend to its valleys to pick the fruits. Isn’t that what we need and thus should want to achieve? Which forces us to gather courage. Investing in order to harvest.”
Herbert Tombeur, The European Federalist Papers

“If the whole community takes a decision, actors and interests are identical: they coincide. In the case of popular sovereignty the people are the general interest and the general interests are the people.”
Leo Klinkers, The European Federalist Papers
