EU is much too benevolent for its own good. IMO it needs to be more pragmatic to survive.
it's precarious enough as it is. But if Le Pen wins in France (and she is leading in basically all polls currently from what I can see) then the EU will fall with France's departure. I don't see how it can stand with only Germany being the major power within it.
I sure hope it does fall, it is a failed 'super state' and a Neoliberal haven run by out of touch, elitist, unelected bureaucrats (nobody even knows who they are).
I think since Brexit, the EU is at the least in permanent decline and is likely the beginning of the end for it. Once France and the Netherlands withdraw from the Euro its collapse will be inevitable, and hopefully it will be swift.
