It's also a bad idea to go 100 Years War-sy.

Not a final solution, anyway.

The EU probably wouldn't be regarded so poorly if the European Central Bank hadn't completely flubbed the response to the financial crisis.

No, it points out that we come from all sides of the political spectrum, but the biggest threat to the EU hegemony is from the right, and the most vociferous anti-EU rhetoric comes from the far-right. It's true, but it doesn't mean that being anti-EU means you're a fascist.

Isn't one of the big problems the EU is facing the same reason why Americans went "Oh. Uh. These articles of confederation aren't actually going to work, are they..."

What's a bit ironic is that an actual unified EU would be the closest thing to a 4th reich that could really be attained (assuming of course the UK isn't on board)

4th Reich - German domination of Europe as part of their sphere of influence.  Possible de facto alliance with the French, slowly to be replaced by pure German dominance as France declines because socialism doesn't work long-term.
United EU - What the Axis of Weasels was going for in 2002/2003 before the Gang of 8 went "WTF?" when Chirac told them to "sit down and shut up".   A defacto USE run by largely unelected bureaucrats in Brussels appointed by various government leaders (mainly France and Germany) for the purpose of uniting Europe (possibly under the one true Marx) the power of the Capitalists in the USA.

/Seriously, all that Iraq War leadup had *nothing* to do with UN approval.  We'd still have been going in (alone) (for better or worse).  It was a crazy, crazy backroom battle for the future of Europe.

I strongly dislike the EU, and find the economic failures of Greece, Ireland, Spain, and Portugal to be a massive albatross round the necks of Germany and France. The unelected bureaucracy of Brussels is a grey parliament of sheer mediocrity. I look forward to a rise of reasonable national pride and independence which will lead to the devolution of the EU's power over sovereign governments in Europe.
/Viva Farage!

Only neo-liberals in academia really thought the ever-growing power of the EU was a good idea.  And Total Fark lefters. They used to start their global-statist lectures with 'As a citizen of the world...'

Looks like author seriously overestimates euro-skeptcs

Every now and then, when I get worried about how insane the Tea Party is, I read about the EU and thank god that we are not that crazy yet.

The term "Euroscepticism" always makes me lol a little inside.  The sad part is, there probably are people who demand proof that Europe exists at all.
 
2014-01-13 06:07:16 PM
^ Yes, yes, I know the term actually refers to EU separatism.  But why couldn't they just call it that?

Hitler wanteda strong, united Europe under his rule.

Checkmate atheists.

PS3: 1

Euroscepticism sounds like a great description for conservatives(TM), who pretend Europe doesn't exist whenever the reality there clashes with their halfwitted economic and social positions.

/yes, I know that's not what the article is about
