Geron -- you do know that Aldous Huxley wrote "Brave New World" was written because he feared the Americanization of Europe? The ideas of sex as recreational, incredible consumption, state-created "social clubs" and Henry Ford's assembly line is there in the EU's bureaucratic genome and also in the Democrat's plans, but the EU's is bound to fail for the same reason we see Catalan's "independence" -- the EU is too diverse. There is no melting pot as we have, which is the same reason why European workers are not as mobile as America -- in the USA, one can shift from NY to Atlanta a lot easier than from Athens to Hamburg -- language, cultural differences, even laws are too different.
And the funny thing is that the Euro, which was meant to unite, has succeeded in creating disunity -- yay :)

That’s a compliment. Don’t often do that.
Thanks for taking the time to educate.
