A change to hope for 44

 It looks as if the undemocratic and corrupt European Union may break up soon. An eventuality devoutly to be wished. This from the International Herald Tribune:

The European Union is not a country, and the deep global contraction is stimulating nationalism, not consensus.

With uncertain leadership and few powerful collective institutions, the union is struggling with the strains this economic crisis has inevitably produced among 27 different countries with different economic histories. The traditional concept of "solidarity," of one for all, is being undermined by protectionist pressures from political leaders with national constituencies and agendas.
