    #EUArchives – Founding fathers of the European Union: Altiero Spinelli

    Above all, we must keep on increasing Parliament’s level of overall involvement. That is why we are calling for a new parliamentary committee that whatever its title, would focus exclusively on this issue. In due course, it would produce interim reports, urging Parliament to choose between the various options put forward and to build as broad a consensus as possible through open debate.

    Helmut Kohl on Freedom | 1989 [HD]

    It has been the renewed dynamism of the process of European unification in recent years that has given the processes of reform in the countries of Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe such strong encouragement. We would therefore be making a bad mistake and completely misjudging the situation, if we were to deprive this process of European unification of its momentum at this of all times. Let all those who have doubts about the position of the Federal Republic of Germany take note: the Federal German Government stands by the Single Act and its goals in every respect. It is a staunch supporter of the completion of the European Union. We…

    Eminent Domain – Arcadia, California

    CUSTOMER: The city wants to see this torn down and become a car dealership. CUSTOMER: Because they’ll get more tax money from the bigger business. (Register rings) ROMERO: The fundamentals of eminent domain is it’s supposed to be only for public use. And I realized that the city is saying this is to expand Mercedes Benz.
