The European Union is almost too attractive for its own good—in contrast with the United States, which is widely disliked for what it does, the EU appeals just by virtue of what it is.

The holding is supplemented by a few issues of the campaign’s magazines, "Jeune Europe", and "Giovane Europa", directed by Fausta Deshormes, and a considerable collection of photographs documenting the congresses and seminars of the national secretariats.
