Washington Post article predicts demise of the EU

Charles Kupchan is a professor of international affairs at Georgetown University and a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. In an article in this morning's Washington Post, linked here, he suggests the end of the EU due to reviving nationalism. This blog agrees with his conclusion but believes the main driving force to the inevitable split may be ascribed to nationalism by the convinced federalists, but will in fact be due to the institutionalised corruption, the inability of those hooked on its system of obscene benefits to kick their addiction to greed, and the basic dishonesty of the manner in which it was constructed due to the deviousness of the very founding fathers he cites in his closing paragraph. As in British politics a return to decency is the prime requisite to restore a trusted international means of exchange to permit a revival of world trade. Our machine politicians are unable to perceive this obvious fact because of the previous requirement for political success to be a complete lack of morals or conscience.

In the meantime there are the useful idiots who inhabit the party political fringes with no idea of the of the consequences of the politicians actions.
