- Britain is close to losing his job as the world’s financier, but like everyone else he would rather eat humble pie and justify his decision.
- According to prominent politicians there, Danish people would be happy to withdraw from the Union before yielding to European parliamentary or judicial pressure.
- Pseudo-leaders are already advocating violence, division, destruction and disobedience, and some political aspirants claim they will not accept losing.
Europe is in trouble. First it was Britain, now France, Denmark, Italy and possibly Germany itself later this year. Europe’s future is in the hands of democracy, a democracy wrestling with its own identity.
The continent's disintegration is predictable, progressive and unavoidable. The crisis is a deep lack of purpose and knowledge, and constant tension in the search for a new identity.
Europe is like an old person who complains of the weather and the neighbours. She cannot understand why people do not look at her as they did when she was young and beautiful.
She wears modern clothes and heavy makeup but cannot hide the passing of years on her face anymore.
According to some experts, you can calculate the age of countries following the “dog” system. To know how old a dog is in comparison to a human being, multiply the biological age of the dog by seven. In the case of countries, divide the country’s age by 14.
'HER OLD STRUGGLES'
One of Europe’s older sons, Britain, recently left the estate in tantrums. He wanted freedom, his money and his inheritance and did not want to continue sharing house expenses with lesser, lazier brothers like Greece, Portugal or Romania.
Things have not worked out, and Britain’s wife, Scotland, is threatening to divorce him. “How could Britain dare to leave such a good estate?” Scotland asks. She is filing a divorce so the estate can allow her to return, alone. Better alone than badly accompanied, she says.
Britain is now in a worse economic situation. He is close to losing his job as the world’s financier, but like everyone else he would rather eat humble pie and justify his decision.
Europe, in her crankiness, keeps blaming her woes on the migrant crisis, the Euro, the bureaucracy and the Greeks, but seems unaware of the fact that her biggest problem is not migration, bureaucracy or the Greek economy.
Only a change of attitude can save Europe, but such change requires self-reflection and getting to the root of the problem, which she does not appear ready to do, blaming everyone but herself.
Europe has forgotten her old struggles, the pains of her youth. Her desires to reach out are long gone.
