Watching Europe Disintegrate
The European Union never really was. There were just too many languages, too many different cultures, too many compelling local needs, for a unified Europe as one great nation-state to fully work. Nationalism that is not expansive is a virtue, not a sin. It really is alright for Britons to be "Great British" and Italians to be Italian. I am amazed that Germany has for so long carried Greece on its back and is allowing itself to be culturally erased by a refugee horde. For world peace and stability, it is fine to have sane European countries each pursuing the course that benefits their own the most.
