On what's become the European Union, Glenn Reynolds:
"The E.U. was always a project of elites, who want to reestablish a modern version of the transnational aristocracy that Europe had prior to World War I. They weren’t big on popular votes when they seemed to have things under control; they surely don’t want one now."
Ah, the good old days ...
60,000,000 slaughtered Europeans later, the "elites" want to resurrect the glory days.
