“As American tourists know, much of Continental Europe has no internal borders. Under the Schengen Treaty, you can land at Rome and wander unhindered all the way to Copenhagen, just as one can from Miami to Boston. That’s because, thanks to the European Union, post-nationalist Continentals were assured by their elites that they were no longer Germans or Spaniards or Belgians but “Europeans.” Then came Greek bailouts, a wobbling Eurozone and the “Arab Spring,” and suddenly national frontiers are re-emerging from the mists of time:
The truth is that there is a VERY good reason for borders and those nations whose political elite have tried to erase them are now rapidly realising the dangers presented by such recklessness. A borderless EU is doomed to suffer whereas Nations that know how to built a moat and throw a few crocodiles in it are much more likely to survive.
