The United States of Europe is a name often given to one possible future development of the European Union, where the union assumes more powers from its member countries and starts to act like a confederation or federation, more like the United States of America.
The phrase "United States of Europe" was used by Winston Churchill in a famous speech in 1948 at the University of Zürich, which is frequently credited with beginning the process that led to the formation of the European Union.
In June 2003, European integration went one step further by the submission of a new 220-page European constitutional text drafted by the Convention on the Future of Europe under leadership of former French president Valery Giscard d'Estaing, to the 25 EU heads of government who expect to be ruled by it soon.

 EH.Net Encyclopedia: An Economic History of Copyright in Europe and the United States
The British Commission that reported on the state of the copyright system in 1878 felt that the laws were "obscure, arbitrary and piecemeal" and were compounded by the confused state of the common law.
In a parallel fashion to the status of the United States in patent matters, France’s influence was evident in the subsequent evolution of international copyright laws.
Instead, the United States pursued international copyright policies in the context of the weaker Universal Copyright Convention (UCC), which was adopted in 1952 and formalized in 1955 as a complementary agreement to the Berne Convention.

 Leon Trotsky: The United States of Europe
Trotsky’s United States of Europe is a Europe that is in transition from the social dictatorship of the bourgeoisie to that of the proletariat.
This opposition between Europe and the United States stems organically from the differences in the objective situations of the European countries and of the mighty transatlantic republic, and is not in any way directed against the international solidarity of the proletariat, or against the interests of the revolution in America.
Although, when we abstract ourselves from Europe, we are obliged to peer into the mists of decades to perceive the American revolution, yet we may safely assert that by the natural sequence of historical events the triumphant revolution in Europe will serve in a very few years to shatter the power of the American bourgeoisie.

 The United States and Europe: Adjusting to the Global Era - Council on Foreign Relations
Europe both as a collective and as individual states constitutes a principal partner, one which for all its differences and limitations is still relatively likeminded and capable.
Europe may be more at peace than at any moment over the past few centuries, but Europeans should not assume their continent will remain an island of stability and prosperity.
The probability that Europe itself may be charting a future in which individual countries come to define their relationship with the EU in different ways further supports this contention.

 SOFTWARE PATENT LAW: UNITED STATES AND EUROPE COMPARED
In the beginning, United States courts treated software suspiciously: In the 1970s, the Supreme Court held that software was essentially mathematical formulae, not patentable under U.S. law.
Europe is more pragmatic; whoever files a patent application first is presumed to be the inventor (first-to-file rule).

 Lenin: On the Slogan for a United States of Europe
But while the slogan of a republican United States of Europe—if accompanied by the revolutionary overthrow of the three most reactionary monarchies in Europe, headed by the Russian—is quite invulnerable as a political slogan, there still remains the highly important question of its economic content and significance.
A United States of Europe under capitalism is tantamount to an agreement on the partition of colonies.
A United States of the World (not of Europe alone) is the state form of the unification and freedom of nations which we associate with socialism—about the total disappearance of the state, including the democratic.

While the United States flexes its economic and military muscles around the world as the dominant global player, it may soon have company.
The new Europe, Reid says, "has more people, more wealth, and more trade than the United States of America," plus more leverage gained through membership in international organizations and generous foreign aid policies that reap political clout.
A chapter detailing what’s left of Europe’s welfare states is followed by a relatively bleak assessment of Europe’s armies, and the spin that the E.U. is betting on economic "soft power" for eventual global dominance.

 Europe and United States want to display their understanding
Vienna: Three years after the start of the war in Iraq, which has sorely tested transatlantic relations, the United States and Europe are now keen to display their understanding.
"The United States has realized that it is not enough to organize free elections, but that it is also necessary to strengthen the institutions and to engage in dialogue with civil societies," one Eurocrat boasted.
In this connection, a joint statement is expected to be adopted in Vienna today, in which the United States will assert its commitment to observing human rights in its struggle against terrorism.

If Europe is truly serious about balancing U.S. power, he continues, it must evolve into a sovereign entity with a single military command and a single foreign policy.
Morgan says, and the United States is in fact powerful because it is sovereign in the traditional sense.
Sweeney's view, the nascent United States required a coherent foreign and military policy because it was isolated and vulnerable.

 Foreign Policy Association: Resource Library: United States and Europe: "Partners or Victims?"
In so far as Europe is concerned we do have in Europe two huge geo-strategic issues that do affect our security and theirs that require a joint response, and both are related either directly or potentially to the issue of terrorism, but both call for comprehensive and difficult response.
Secondly, the sooner we can transfer authority to the United Nations so that they are the umbrella authority, the sooner we create a government that we transfer nominal sovereignty to, the sooner we can begin to cope with the problems of that country.
It is acting like a typical petrol state, in which a lot of income from oil is then spent in a flashy fashion in one or two centers where wealth is concentrated, but the country stagnates and even de-industrializes.

 A Contemporary History of Ibogaine in the United States and Europe
We received ibogaine from both the United States and England, and what happened was this: I was given a dose of ibogaine from an associate of mine who was actually a chemist involved in a 1950's LSD scene - most people don't even know that there was a '50s LSD scene.
Lionheart stated that a number of "alternative" treatments had been considered for detoxification, including ibogaine, and were eschewed in favor of the "cold turkey" approach, apparently mainly on philosophical grounds.
She stated that as of November 2000, she had treated 15 individuals for the primary indication of opioid dependence, 5 for cocaine dependence, 2 for alcohol dependence, and 4 individuals whose motivation was "psychospiritual".

 Churchill and the Unification of Europe - The Churchill Centre
Mauter, Wendell: "Churchill and the Unification of Europe"
Winston Churchill's call in 1945 for a "United States of Europe," a federation of European states to promote harmonious relations between nations, economic cooperation, and a sense of European identity, has caused him to be regarded as the father of European unity.
Only months after the war ended he advocated a "United States of Europe" to unify the continent "in a manner unknown since the fall of the Roman Empire." The federation would be one of several regional units in the new United Nations.

 A United States of Europe?
It was to preserve what is called the "social market economy", which in effect is to create a Colbertian corporatist and quasi-socialist state on the continent, in direct opposition to the classical liberal market economy that the British had increasingly embraced with the Thatcher revolution.
The vehemently anti-European Labour Party, which recognised that the new Europe far from being a capitalist haven was to promote a quasi-socialist paradise, became its major champions.
The rising power of Germany twice tried to win mastery of Europe, in wars which spilled into the world, and which were only settled with decisive intervention by the then predominant economic (and ipso facto military power) the United States.

A chapter detailing what’s left of Europe’s welfare states is followed by a relatively bleak assessment of Europe’s armies, and the spin that the E.U. is betting on economic "soft power" for eventual global dominance.
While we Americans naturally imagine the quality of life in the United States to be superior to all others, one examining the issue becomes less sure that this is an established fact as opposed to being an un-researched supposition based on a profound cultural ignorance and lack of social experience living in other countries.
The United States of Europe is an intelligent, well-written and eye-opening look at the European Union; its history, its euro, its ever growing market and political muscle.

The arguments in favor of a United Europe were the same as those advanced for the League: that the chief cause of the just-concluded Great War was "rampant nationalism," and that the only solution was the surrender of certain prerogatives of national sovereignty to a higher international authority.
The most informative account of the role of America's Insider Establishment in organizing the movement for a United Europe can be found in a six-part report on the Common Market that appeared in installments in the authoritative H. du B. Reports during 1972 and 1973.
