Sweden should be abolished as a sovereign nation and instead be part of a "European Federation," centrally controlled from Brussels. This is the proposal the Liberals voted yes to at their national convention on Sunday.
It was the youth party Luf that had submitted the proposal. In the motion, "It's time for a federation," the Liberals should "take a stand for the European Union to eventually develop into a European federation."
According to the motion, the EU federation will be something similar to the United States, with its own president and a parliament with two chambers. The EU will also have the right to decide on member states' foreign and security policy, currency and monetary policy, environment, and fight against international crime and certain taxes.
This is apparent from the motion, which was passed by the Liberals, Sweden's seventh largest party, on Sunday.
On social media, many liberal profiles rejoice over that the proposal, which in practice means that Sweden is abolished as an independent country and becomes a state governed by Brussels, was adopted.
For example, Cecilia Wikström, who is a member of the European Parliament writes: "The Liberals has now made the decision to work for the EU to become a federation! Finally!!!!"
In a debate article in UNT in May, Luf-President Joar Forssell noted that a federation would have many advantages. For example, the federation could force countries like Hungary to accept immigrants from the third world.
"Removing some power from individual governments is not a question of reducing people's influence, on the contrary, it's about making the EU more democratic," he wrote.
Others would simply call it treason.
