Once, I have been believed that western and eastern Europe can form strong federation as a counterweight to the US domination in the world with their own military organisation. Now I am sure that is nothing like that possible. We have been able to establish a culture of the same value like the western was, but it will never be respected because of simple reason. Our eastern dialects sound strange for the westerners. The cultural barrier is now much deeper than during the cold war, I think. We are for them just a cheap labour force. Maybe the things turn better in the future for both sides in Europe but if not, this  is the necessary solution.
