The European Union is a state-under-construction serving the dominant fractions of European capital. A different Europe will require completely different institutions. But the debate cannot be isolated from the economic and political system. Saving the planet and genuine democracy require system change. A return to national states or currencies will not allow for escape from the logic of capitalism. Such a goal requires a countervailing power to capital. Transnational class struggles foster hope. The challenge is to deepen, broaden, and unite these movements.
