In this case, the Citizens spends little care about the Question whether the far-right, the Social Democrats, the Greens or left-wing populism becomes a drive, even if the conservatives in Europe continue their dominance. Much more the Citizens requires a reliable solution to their really important everyday problems. In this context, there is a need for Europe, to get out from the logic of closed circles , in which politicians negotiate with each other in groups or other forms of Representation . There is a clear necessity of recover the mean of sovereignty of the People in a holistic European Dimension that has to be institutionalized (Habermas 1996). Hence the lack of democracy. The progressive Forces of Europe, led by the Social Democrats should confront herself with the idea to define a new potential of public Goods in the context of a pan-European welfare state that is able to defuse the new inequalities in Europe. The e unification of Europe ultimately needs an appropriate institutional notionally foreplay, which can function as an ideal type in the consciousness of the citizen.
