Very much enjoyed the article, but I’m surprised that an American could be in favour of the EU, as it was and remains both profoundly anti-constitutional and anti-democratic (Grexit? Oxi!). Resentment at incorporation by fiat into a free-trade zone without recognition of constitutional and legislative rights, a zone which appears to be governed by an unrepresentative and self-selecting coterie of oligarchs, should, I imagine, sound fairly familiar to anyone planning on keepin’ it in any way 1600.
