A cry for Europe

Fred Destin

From refusing the outcome of referendums (Ireland) to timorous and hypocritical foreign policy, Europe is being killed by a culture of weak consensus. Far from me to decry the benefits of a more balanced system that has a strong social net and keeps people more than one paycheck from poverty, but I find very little courage in either our political class or our thinkers when it comes to taking responsibility for our our decline.
