One thought on “Conquering Europe

  1. I’m not sure I like the direction this line of thought is taking. I do feel that the EU is becoming a German + French club and that the EU has a democracy deficit. It is not all the German’s fault that many decisions are made in back offices, beyond public scrutiny and accountability. Angela Merkel can in no way be compared to Napoleon, Kaiser Wilhelm or Hitler. The EU and NATO have provided a forum for Germany to channel its energy into building a more united Europe and that is a positive thing. I cannot pretend to know the solution to the Euro crisis, but constructive German participation is going to be key to the solution. I’m sure that throwing the past in Germany’s faces is not constructive. We live in a different era now. We need to focus on how to solve the Euro problem and not bring up seemingly irrelevant history, true as it may be.
