Europe? What for?

For the pro european there is no question as what is Europe for. Europe is a necessity, it should exist. It solve all the problem war, stability, growth. It's great! Look at Ireland it was a bunch of poor rag now it's a dynamic country thanks to Europe!

Whoo stop I say. Are you sure about all that? What does Europe mean? Where is it going? What is the success of Ireland due to - I would guess instution change and low taxes -.

Europe has been promoted by the pro European has the inevitable sense of history, no wonder people are skeptical. They don't even know where it's going, they don't know if they want to go there.

I personnaly don't think that a political Europe is possible, even desirable, there are too many differences between countries. Anyway it's probably time to propose clear project to the people not technocratic mumbo jumbo.

Ok, great idea, your turn then...
Because us pro-european as you say, we already tried, twice...

Even Swissroll - albeit not EU member - is making proposal... And as you can see in comments, or in the article I quote from Rue89, it looks like anyway whatever will the the question, the answer will be NO, for as many reasons as people...

Ok so maybe the answer is no to a political Europe. Why would you absolute want something that is not possible, and whose benefits are hard to appreciate.
