United States of Europe Prophesied Since 1934? Herbert W. Armstrong’s Stolen Idea!

Herbert Armstrong’s Stolen Idea.

How did the concept of a United States of Europe develop?

In this short video you will learn just how Herbert W Armstrong came up with and developed his idea that the European union would someday attack and destroy America.

The United States of Europe (sometimes abbreviated U.S.E. or USE) is a name given to several similar hypothetical scenarios of the unification of Europe, as a single country and a single federation of states, similar to the United States of America, both as projected by writers of speculative fiction and science fiction, and by political scientists, politicians, geographers, historians, and futurologists.

George Washington wrote to Marquis de La Fayette: “One day, on the model of the United States of America, a United States of Europe will come into being.”
