Opinion - Gerard Baker US Editor Times Online: "But Europe looked inward, not outward. Instead of focusing on what was needed ï¿½ American and British-style labour reforms, tax cuts and deregulation ï¿½ Europe embarked on a quix- otic exercise. It sought to weld a dozen or more disparate countries into an unbreakable economic union, all settled snug and warm under the fraying comfort blanket of expensive welfare systems. "
Socialism has to be imposed by force or other forms of trickery and oppression like courts making law, contrary to the Constitution. People never vote for socialism. It has to be disquised as something else.
The USSR fell because socialism doesn't work. The rank and file of Europeans understand it, it seems.

EU in crisis as France rejects EU constitution: "'This raises profound questions for all of us about the future direction of Europe,' Straw told reporters. 'What we want now is a period of reflection.'"
Great idea, Mr. Straw. All of Europe needs to reflect. I would suggest Revelation 14:8: "And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."
Repentance is a good idea. Needs reflection.
