A Europhile is a 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 slide toward a federal Europe began with the formation of the European Coal and Steel Community in 1952 and the European Economic Community in 1958. The Treaty of Maastricht in 1992 and the further expansion of the EU soon after greatly accelerated the slide toward 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.
Opposition to the Europhile agenda consists of people who oppose the growing power of the European Union and further immigration and integration, something referred to as Euroskepticism.
