Years ago, many Europeans hoped that the European Union (EU) might be a force for good. In the early 1990s, even I shared some of those hopes.
However, these dreams have been put to shame. The time has come to take an honest look at what the EU actually is today, not to dream about what it might have become.
There have been disturbing, Utopian and partly totalitarian undercurrents to the EU for years. These currents have now reached the surface. The EU increasingly resembles a pan-European tyranny.
