How the Soviet Union took over countries - Do you see the EU paralels?

A fascinating interview with ex-KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov in the 1980s explaining how the Soviet Union took over foreign countries other than by force. The YouTube link also has links to the original interview that you may want to watch when you have an hour or so to spare.

The four stages interested me hugely:
Demoralisation takes 15-20 years - enough to educate one generation of the home country

Destabilisation takes 2-5 years - essentials economy, foreign relations and defence

Crisis takes 6 weeks

Period of normalisation may last for ever

Do you see the parallels with the EU here?
