What do you think about our European Union and where do the actual and next enlargements of new countries lead us?
Ah, my name is Jesús. I think Spain (maybe also Mexico,etc) is the only country where a person is named like Jesus Christ.
Though, it's paradoxical bearing in mind I'm atheist.
Well, I wait for your answers.
Bye

At least the EU has a decent anthem.
The inclusion of Eastern European nations will certainly help them economically, and seems to have strengthened the rule of law, individual freedom, and democracy which are the hallmarks of civilisation. The inclusiveness will provide a stronger union.

I think the name, Jesus, is common in most Spanish-speaking countries.

I'm comfortable with it. It seems logical for the nations of Europe to be cooperating among themselves. Economically, it is potentially superior to competition between close geographic nieghbors. Science & Aerospace Technology appear to have become stronger with the advent & development of the partnership. It should have a positive effect on crime-fighting, too. Religious and ideological differences existing within the Europeon Union are not unlike those here in the United States, so I guess you can expect debates about most everything as time goes on. Recognition of individual national issues is also not unlike those found between the states on this side of the Atlantic Ocean, too. Mainly we all can learn from the mistakes done in the past and try to avoid them in the future. :thumbsup: Good question, Jesus

The two most common opinions I've run into on the net are that EU is going to crash and burn because we aren't capitalistic enough or, the most common opinion, that the EU is a non-factor.

Religious and ideological differences existing within the Europeon Union

They are going to get real interesting if Turkey joins, with 40 million Muslims.

i should probly just mind my own damn business and stay out of this thread, but...oh, that would be boring!

i think many of us here in the states are sitting back and watching...waiting...and examining. i have personally heard two views...those that think it's the most wonderful thing since the nfl, and those that think it's an early omen of disaster. for some reason, there doesn't seem to be an in-between. but anyone naive enough to believe it has "nothing to do with us" had best start watching the news, reading the news, or perhaps move to a deserted island where they just MAY escape reality.

the bible mentions a world-wide form of currency to come, and it's being speculated the euro is it, signifying the "end" is near. since it has been a long while since i have read revelations...i will go no further with that thought, not wanting to misquote. and of course, this is subject to believing in the bible, in the first place, which is somewhere ELSE i have no desire to go. everyone is entitled to their own, and since i am often criticized for my "wayward" beliefs, i will be the last to throw a hypocritical stone!

it should be interesting, no matter what, to watch the progression of the EU.

Not to turn this into a religious discussion but (that said he dives in anyway) that's the problem with the Book of Revelations; If there ever seems to be a world wide consensus on anything that might lead to a Everlasting Peace, the Christian Faithful with be scared to death of it and fight to be sure it can never happen, since that would possibly signal the coming of the Beast.
