"Yet all the while there is a remedy which, if it were generally and spontaneously adopted by the great majority of people in many lands, would as by a miracle transform the whole scene and would in a few years make all Europe, or the greater part of it, as free and happy as Switzerland is today. What is this sovereign remedy? It is to recreate the European fabric, or as much of it as we can, and to provide it with a structure under which it can dwell in peace, safety and freedom. We must build a kind of United States of Europe. In this way only will hundreds of millions of toilers be able to regain the simple joys and hopes which make life worth living. The process is simple. All that is needed is the resolve of hundreds of millions of men and women to do right instead of wrong and to gain as their reward blessing instead of cursing."

What he missed was the inner circle that went for the reward only, and sod the blessing, that built an inefficient and potentially corrupt system .

A good speech, a shame it only almost happend. His closing , France, Germany should take the lead, and France ,Germany, Great Britain and it's common wealth, the United States and even Russia all need to become friends

The world we live in, no longer means no, yes doesn't mean yes, losing is just a position until we wear you down and win, or at least get our own way, not only are they offended, they are in powered. Possible spoilt brats who are used to getting their own way if they shout loud enough? God help us for saying no and offending them, against their rights.
