What's the Purpose? Students will have a stronger grasp of how close analysis can enable them to manipulate syntax, diction, and tone to achieve different effects on specific audiences for different purposes in their own writing. The programme was conceived with its own end in sight: it was designed to help Europeans help themselves and make them independent from American aid in the future. It was also conceived as regional and collaborative in approach. This was to be a European project. It was not to be a unilaterally imposed plan, but instead — in the framework of US principles and conditions — Europeans should have ownership of the project and develop proposals themselves.

This allowed others to contribute to the precise shape of the programme, so that the bill eventually sent to Congress was a joint effort, not a fait accompli. Truman met Congressional leaders frequently during the drafting phase, made sure that Republican requests for information were met quickly, provided huge amounts of documentation and information, and ensured that committees could question senior officials, including himself. Truman and the administration did not own the show; instead, they gave others, who had been convinced of the plan, space to argue in its favour and manoeuvre on their own.
This support added to his credibility. With European and American support, the project was set in motion. As Germans and Europeans we should always remember that European integration and the unification of our continent was possible first and foremost because America remained engaged in Europe after
