But now, reading yours, I'm almost in the mood of saying: Yes, I belong to this tattered continent. I disagree in some of your assessments. The interference in national administrations might in some cases be problematic, appreciable in others. The European member states are even bound by EU legislation (depending on the kind of the respective bill), although the EU lacks an effective executive body, however this lack should be judged. Maybe it is also because of this lack of a European police - not Europol, which is just a coordinating institution - that a hierarchy inside the union is formed mainly through material power. In Germany, I sometimes say to myself that if our politicians wouldn't be forced to cooperate with the European partners, the German proletarians would be worse off, because of the mentalities.
