But it's the natural way of things.
No its not, we're wearing pants that are too big for us, we're all still very much in love with nations, middle Germany is your example.
It's nothing new actually but rather going back to normalcy for the Europeans.
You know BB i'd give anything to meet you in real life in ten years and remind you of your post just to see your face, Europe is a healthy war and more than a century away from normality.
But it WILL happen! :)
Eventually yes but not now, Germans want to be in the saddle, French want to be in the saddle, Britain is Americas *****, Russia is inherently unstable and prone to failiure and what Poland is you will believe only in 20 or so years after it happens, one way or the other the idea of unified Europe of regions is a sound one but its a few generations ahead of our monkey mentality right now.
