The Washington Times let Paul Belien write the editorial "The 'EUSSR'" about the EU Summit:
Liberty and democracy require limited governments, while supranationalism by definition tends toward unlimitedness. The former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky refers to the EU as the "EUSSR." He does so, he explains, because the former USSR and the EU share the same goal: the obliteration of nations. "The European Union, like the Soviet Union, cannot be democratized," he says. If the EU becomes a genuine state itis bound to be an evil empire, because there is no European nation.Belien concludes: "By seeking to extinguish national loyalty, the EU also destroys freedom, accountability and democracy."
