    History has seen a steady succession of empires: IMO all of them bad, but some even worse. Getting rid of one just opens the arena for a successor. Will the Neo-Soviet empire be better or worse than the attempts of a neo-Ottoman empire?

    In my view the European Union - the idea - is a huge improvement compared to the empire succession model. Here we see an attempt - quite successful - of letting rational planning from real experts replace emotionality and whims in more or less crazy rulers or stupid parliaments. It is typical that the evil alt-right, the no less evil religious reactionaries, or the ultimately evil empire nostalgics dislike, detest or hate the EU.

    but too left.
    i venture a guess that its your reaction to the latest "rise of the idiots".
    but imvho you should do some introspecting.
    it is enough to look at eu position on gm or on the more recent crispr. and thats just in the field of science...
    rational planning from real experts? really?
    i somehow doubt that.

    ultimately , its not just the evil empire nostalgics that dislike, detest or hate the EU - but also some folks that think the eu is not advancing as it should.
    in some respects it actually hinders the development of some countries in europe.

    ps.
    my original post above was supposed to be sarcastic ;)
