A Europhile is a person, especially a politician or a business person, who strongly supports the European Union, further European integration, and prefers the power of European institutions above that of the EU's (member-)states. Europhiles are globalists, and many of them are socialists or liberals.
The Treaty of Maastricht in 1992 and further expansion was the beginning of the dreamed federal Europe.
The goal of europhiles is the foundation of a United States of Europe, which many of them view as a stepping stone to establishing a one-world government.
The opposition of the Europhile agenda are the people who oppose the growing power of the European Union and further immigration, and has been called Euroskepticism.
