#1 Why the European Union Is Failing

"Hey, I have a great idea! Let us put unelected bureaucrats in charge."

Enough said.

#2 Why did the Soviet Union fail? At least the Chinese caught on that the religious adherence to orthodoxy was the path to failure.

#3 Why is it failing? Is it because the EU doesn't act in the best interests of the individual countries?

#6 Define failure.

Like Obama, it's not failure if it is accomplishing its intended purpose.

#7 Why is the EU failing? The great majority of citizens do not want to reproduce, live for today, and do not value their culture and history. They are being out bred by muslims from the ME and south Med, who want the bennies, but do not contribute to the European culture. So it is an invasion by people who do not give a rat's behind about European values, other than what they can grab in material goods.

#8 Why the European Union Is Failing

Don't know - I still haven't figured why they wanted European Union, as distinct from European Common market, in the first place.

The Carolingian Empire 2.0? France-Belgium-Germany wanted an Empire and everbody else wanted Free Stuff©! Of course Brexit was when England finally figured out they were going to be left paying the bill after the party was over.

#11 #8 grom - Power, of course.

Britain was an idiot to get involved beyond the Common Market. (So were the others, but they're idiots anyway.)

#12 Power... and jealousy that those uncouth Americans had somehow managed to create a world power out of 13 hardscrabble colonies.

#14 The European Union represents the interests of the European Union. They don't represent the people, obviously. I mean, eww. Deplorables.
