The United States of Europe are the natural consequence of the growth and development of a European consciousness. Being European doesn't mean to occupy a certain geographic area in Europe. > Being European means thinking as a European, living in a country with > European beliefs and traditions, and feeling as a European. > Being European is an inside out process which means to develop in each citizen a European consciousness - an inner sense of European patriotism - a conscious, eternal idea of a united nation called "Europe".
