The European Union is rapidly becoming a more important part of the daily life of European citizens. National countries have decided to transfer important powers in an unprecedented way. Budgetright, energy policies, border control and monetary issues are all decided upon by Brussels. But what does this mean for people's lives and how democratic is this development? Filmmaker Peter Vlemmix goes on a journey to uncover the core of the European project. Who pull the strings, what are the agenda's for the next years and why is Euro-skepticism growing. Does the European Union provide a better life for European people, or is it benefiting a few? This is the question addressed by Euromania, a documentary film containing interviews with some of Europe's most influential policy makers as well as personal stories from people directly touched by European decisions.

This documentary is a great eye opener and lifts a bit of the curtain on what the European union is doing.
The idea of a European union is good but the abomination that it has become is not the way it works. The European union is turning into a socialist state. In the equation of government, business, citizens the government should be eliminated. Can we as people not decide what is good for us? Do we need laws for everything? Do we need to be treated like we are ignorant and need a government to make decisions for us? As Ewald Engelen is saying this is an insult to the EU citizen. Let free markets decide what is in the best interest of the people.
I also suggest you watch the documentary that Milton Friedman made in 1980 named Free to Choose. Although it is 34 years old, with the current developments in the world it is still very actual.
As Benjamin Franklin stated: He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.
