The EU as a whole is the most reluctant empire in European history,
The entire thing has been planned. By technocrats, to be run by technocrats.
And what we\’re seeing is analagous to that socialist calculation problem. The world is simply too complex to be run by technocrats. Which is why the system is as fucked as it is.
Why are we in this downward spiral of mutual resentment? Because of the basic design flaws of the euro, certainly.
It\’s deeper than that. It\’s a basic design flaw of the EU.
