  •  The foundations of the European Dream (0+ / 0-)

    are strong and getting stronger. The ISC,  EEC and EU were founded on the dream that two millenia of warfare could be ended if nation states could pool their means of making war.

    The project is ongoing and will not be completed until the Union stretches from the Arctic to the Mediterranean and the Black Sea to the Atlantic.

    65 years - less than a lifetime -  is negligible in the context of this history and a fairly minor recession is not going to derail it. Another pan-European civil war has become unthinkable and the union enlarges to 28 next year.

    The great traditions of the community caring for the poor and infirm that were wiped from Gaul and Albion by Caesar's asset grabbing barbarian hoards have become part of the social contract throughout the continent. If there are financial problems, the strength of the protests and riots against attempts to roll back services shows just how strong the commitment of the peoples are to these social services.

    Fight poverty, oppression, hunger, ignorance, disease and aggression wherever they occur.
