It is rather important for Europeans to shift their mindset from a feeling of being German, Spanish, Danish, Dutch or similar to feeling European at first regard. Why is that?
Europe often suffers from not identifying with Europe enough. In times of economical difficulties, this time around sparked by the Covid-19, some parts of Europe are not doing as well or worse than others, leading to the necessity of inter-European economic aids. While economic aids are widely accepted on a state level like (e.g. on federal state helping another one in Germany) it tends to be less accepted on an inter-European level.
