The European Tinder Box
“Eventually, I judge that the smouldering European tinder box will burst forth in to flame and thence on to conflagration. At which point all bets are off. No amount of logical and neat arguments about how politicians will engineer a European superstate without an explicit democratic mandate so to do will counteract the incandescent rage that could grip a critical mass of European citizens going without work, going without shelter, going hungry and living without hope.
It’s this ‘direct action’ by angry citizens that would scupper the controlled, totalitarian formation of a European superstate, I believe. But I accept that I may be quite wrong in this and that the Europeans could well end up stumbling like lambs to the slaughter when it comes to their political masters implementing a ‘coup de continent’ and forcing the formation of the United States of Europe on 495 million people. God help them if it happens that way.”
