Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The politicians of a Federal EU will be just as scared of/in the pockets of Bill Gates et al as those of the nation states.

The European Parliament can resist at the moment because it does not rule, it simply has oversight.

Once the Council of Ministers is replaced by an elected Federal Executive, the corporations will target them just as they target the national leaders currently.

I don't know what solution is best, but a Federal Europe will be a lot worse than the current situation IMHO.

Eats cheroots and leaves.
