The European Union is the most important political project of our time. But instead of developing it, the progress became slower and slower. The member states lack common goals and a common understanding of European values; the EU lacks an idea for its own, and our common future. It must be our priority to make Europe self-confident and viable again!
The foundation of a German party with a clear European political orientation is long due. For us, this means to be the first party to consistently value pan-European interests higher than German interests. The future is no longer to be found in solutions of individual states: The future is to be found in more European solutions.
In the member states, increasingly critical European and nationalist movements are gaining strength. This is paradoxical, because today’s life knows fewer borders than ever before. Nevertheless, the nation states show little interest in putting their own interests aside in order to achieve the best results for the union and our future. On the contrary, the capitals emphasise constantly that they successfully represented and defended their own interests in Brussels - to the detriment of the common goals.
We want to emphasise European values, stand up for European interests and make European progress! European ideas need real European parties to represent them. The currently existing political families of national parties are not sufficient to achieve our aim. Only with real European parties decisions can be made for the good of the EU progress, and no longer for the best national lobbys. With this goal in mind we want to improve the EU. In doing so, we are deliberately opposing nationalist and right-wing populist parties and their ideals. We do not want to fit into the typical party spectrum because we want to focus on European issues only! Europe needs a driving force that emphasises and promotes the values and advantages of the Union. We want to be that driving force!
The European Parliament currently consists only of members of national parties who primarily represent the interests of their sending countries. It is time that we give MEPs the opportunity to defend the interests of all Europeans and to stand up for all citizens of the Union without regard to their nationality. This can be made possible through parties that can be elected throughout Europe. Through a strengthened Parliament. By abolishing the Council of the European Union.
The European Union needs more decision-making powers in those policy areas where national scope meets transnational challenges. Climate change, digitization or refugee crises do not stop at national borders. Challenges, on the other hand, which can be addressed with national policies, should be discussed and dealt with nationally as before.
The values of the European Union must be understood as the foundation of our political cooperation again. Democracy, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, the rule of law and tolerance: the second article of the EU Treaty must form the heart of the European identity - it shouldn’t just be defined by the internal market or monetary union. We want to deepen cooperation in an open European core with those states that commit themselves to these values. A two-speed Europe offers more integration to the willing states, and a less-powerful Europe to others. To take political action now, we cannot wait for a 28 states unanimity.
We are striving to change the European Union! We want to shape the future of the European Union and actively defend the values the EU stands for. We are committed to make the most important project in European history fit for the future and to put the good of all EU citizens first. In order to achieve these goals, we are looking for enthusiastic Europeans who want to join us along our way - to enable real European parties and revolutionize the European Union.
