The Fourth Reich?

Angela Merkel is saying that the answer to Europe’s debt crisis is “not less Europe but more.”  More Europe really means more Germany telling other euro zone members what to do and how to run their governments.  We’ve seen this movie before in 1870, 1914, and 1939.

It was a tad insensitive of Merkel to say that Europe is facing “the most difficult hours since World War II.”  Um, whose fault were all those “difficult hours” under the Nazis?

I don’t think we have to worry about “more Europe.”  Ain’t gonna happen.  But the shift to less Europe won’t be pretty.
