    It's the continuation of Germany by other means. I'd have thought you'd be proud Germany eventually achieved its aims without violence.
    Considering what modern Germany is, I think that's not a bad goal. There are a lot of far worse goals to aim at.
    Apart from it laying ruin to its peripheral economies.
    Actually, it hasn't. Greece isn't peripheral to Germany and Poland's economy grew by quite a bit after joining the EU, as did a number of other countries. Taking full on basket cases like Hungary or Greece as examples is not Germany's fault as those countries manage to fuck things up quite nicely on their own. Being in the EU has only made the mismanagement of those economies more visible. Likewise, blaming the EU for the UK's problems is shortsighted at best. The inequality of growth in the UK between London and just about everywhere else is not the EU's nor Germany's fault. You can say that the growth of London's financial industry is due to the EU, but the fact that no one in British politics made much out of that for the rest of the country is really a UK political problem.

    In my opinion, the EU magnifies problems of member countries because of the interconnected economies, and that is a problem that should be better handled, but the EU has come out of the global recession fairly well considering how bad it was.
    Hungary and Poland aren't in the euro so they're more like the outer empire or Germany's own Warsaw Pact.

    Anecdotally, Romania seems in p good shape with prosperity happening. Its probably all for show while I’m here though and they’ll let the gypsys out of the gulag when i go home next week.

    This is where we learn again how much those stats can be entirely pointless.

    EU is more like a political union ( focused on civil and human rights) and less a functional mega federation. Bureaucrats from Brussels failed to solve every major crisis in past 10 years , so every state must take care on itself, this is why nationalism parties are on rise now.

    The constitutional court in Karlsruhe has given the government until the end of 2018 to pass a law specifying a category other than male or female.
    It said current regulations on civil status were discriminatory against intersex people.
    The category could be called "inter" or "various".

    Tens of thousands of people joined a nationalist march in Warsaw on Saturday, organised to coincide with Poland's independence day.

    Marchers chanted religious slogans such as "God, honour, country" and some called out racist chants including "Pure Poland, white Poland".

    An "anti-fascist" counter-protest attracted about 2,000 people.

    Police estimated that 60,000 people took part in the main march.
