The European Union is the biggest and wealthiest continous trade zone in the world, and ten new members joined last year without a hitch. Other countries are lining up to follow, and are doing everything to shape up and meet the Union’s standards. The EU is thereby spreading rule of law and democracy ever wider eastwards. There is a reason why the United States pushes the EU to take in ever more countries, you know.
Now, why don’t I see anyone in the so-called ‘Anglosphere’ acknowledging this success story, instead of endlessly obsessing about its faults?
