You Fight Two World Wars and Down the Road Germany Still Wins

Peter Hitchens writes:
If the old USSR was an Evil Empire – and it was – the EU is the Stupid Empire. Obsessed with the idea that the nation state is obsolete, the EU has sought to bind its colonies tightly, while pretending they are still independent.
This is why what is essentially a modern German empire is not held together by armies, but by a sticky web of regulations and a currency that destroys prosperity wherever it is introduced (with one important exception, Germany itself, for whom the euro means cheap exports to Asia).
Ironically, the body established in large part to ensure that a rapacious, dominant Germany would never again arise has ended up facilitating the rise of a modern German empire.
