At first I didn't wanted to "abuse" the party journal to find out your opinion on a curiosity of mine, but after a bit of thought I decided that this is an important enough question for it.
My question is about your wiews on such supranational organizations such as the EU, EEC, EFTA and similar political, military and economic organizations.
My reason for asking this is that I see a - for me - worrying tendency among us, that many of our comrades immediately, without much thought label such organizations wrong and harmful.
To avoid misunderstandings I too think that the EU, EEC etc. etc. are not organized and operated the way they should be, that they are creations of capitalist economic greed however I do not think that international integration is fundamentally wrong.
It is my strong belief that such organizations if reformed properly would be ideal tools of tearing down the walls that separate nation from nation, people from people. My thought is that instead of working for the dissolution of such organizations we should rather focus on shaping them to our thoughts and ideals. Now of course in many cases we do not have that opportunity, however for example those living in EU countries have all the right in the world to vote the good people into the European Parliment.
But that's enough of me, I'm curious about what you think in this matter.
