A glimpse into the dark malaise behind the EU project.
Recent elections in France, the Netherlands, and Austria, in which Eurosceptic populist and patriotic parties did poorly in national elections, suggest to some that the EU is still strong despite Britain’s vote to leave the union. Yet the problems bedeviling the EU ever since its beginnings in 1992 have not been solved. Nor are they likely to be with just some institutional tweaks and adjustments. “More Europe,” that is, greater centralization of power in Brussels at the expense of the national sovereignty of member states, is not the answer. The flaws in the whole EU project flow from its questionable foundational assumptions.
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.

This sounds more like a threat than a promise. And if the German people vote for this Führer with delusions of a great Germanic-Islamic continent, then they deserve everything is is coming to them. What she says is madness, bloody madness. Clearly, they French will go along. They always do (see: Vichy).
