    A pretty solid critique of the European Union and the theories surrounding it.


  2. Jim Butcher Jim Butcher says:

    A must read, especially now given the EU s crisis, the Greek bailout and the UK referendum Shows how the advance of the EU runs parallel to and feeds off a diminished sense of politics and democracy Politics becomes technique and is outsourced to a commission Europe s elites gain authority of sorts through the EU in context of a globalised world rather than through the demos It is a great analysis and doubly important as its emphasis on democracy is sady lacking in the debate.
