2020: Our Common Destiny1, 2012 edition, by Niki Raapana and Nordica Friedrich, at p. 40 (emphasis added):

“In 2003, Italian Prime Minister Giuliano Amato, later Vice-President of the European Union Constitutional Convention, told Italian newspaper La Stampa how Communitarian Law is introduced:

“One must act ‘as if’ in Europe: as if one wanted only very few things, in order to obtain a great deal. As if nations were to remain sovereign, in order to convince them to surrender their sovereignty.

The [European] Commission in Brussels, for example, must act as if it were a technical organism, in order to operate like a government…and so on, camouflaging and toning down.

The sovereignty lost at a national level does not pass to any new subject. It is entrusted to a faceless entity: NATO, the UN and eventually the EU.
