Comment of the Day — Monday, October 5th:
The EU is likely doomed to failure simply because it is an artificial construct. The member nations share no common language and it’s unlikely that this could be forced on them by fiat. Also, the Euro, while doing well at the moment, could serve to hamstring the members that now see capitalism, instead of socialism, as the way forward. These intrepid Europeans could find themselves subsidizing nations with less will to strike out on the journey to prosperity. In any case, the common currency holds down nations that see a future in having a strong economy, which the European Parliament will undoubtedly work toward redistributing to lazier member states. We have yet to see what the actual benefits to the citizens of EU members are, although the imagined benefits are trumpeted loud and long
