The Mystery of Europe's Dissolution

Reader comment on item: Europe Wake Up!

Ever wonder why Europa will never fully coalesce into the powerhouse of civilization? A unified People of Europe has never reached a fully developed status of common goals and socialization to which all could be part of and exhibit a fellowship of seeking a common understanding without being true to themselves ethnically. It's in the DNA. There was only one time when this was thought possible; that did not survive the Middle Ages. Even under the mysticism of civilizationalism.

It is much easier to see how nationalistic political dreams are more powerful to any indigenous peoples looking for a more common goals of defending the ancestors' dream of protecting the 'home front.'
