Reader comment on item: Europeans: From Venus?
in response to reader comment: Europeans cannot resist violence

I think part of that lost glory was the inspiration for the EU. Of course what they now have is a giant bureaucracy with many inherent and conflicting interests/motives. The beast will either turn on itself or try to validate itself at the expense of the world. Luckily Europeans don't like to work and will never pay for the "teeth" it will need to be a threat.

We might be fat and think a chicken McNugget is part of a fine dining experience, but Americans will and can outproduce a European anyday.....Keep adding countries I think you just have the liabilities left. Of course if the U.S. wanted to play that game we'd combine ourselves with the Japanese economy. One and done.

I love Europe and wish the best to our friends across the Atlantic. I hope the EU experiment works but i'm skeptical. It certainly gives you a larger voice but our president is usually asleep or on vacation when you do so. I hope this changes ASAP.
