"What are its major achievements these last 25 years, say?

One could ask the same of the EU!"


Let's see...

Created the only international manufacturer of large commercial aircraft that can compete with Boeing.

Created the largest collection of safe, peaceful, advanced, democratic countries outside of North America.

Currently a world leader in privacy protection.

A world leader in scientific research and engineering - CERN, ELT (39m mirror!), AIP submarines, etc.

It's not perfect - there seems to be a lot of regulation, and too much socialism, but those are endemic world problems these days.
