Can't Undo the Past

Mark Steyn, EU just won't take 'no' for an answer -
Following Sunday's vote in France, on Wednesday Dutch voters get to express their opinion on the proposed ''European Constitution.'' Heartening to see democracy in action, notwithstanding the European elite's hysterical warnings that, without the constitution, the continent will be set back on the path to Auschwitz. I haven't seen the official ballot, but the choice seems to be: "Check Box A to support the new constitution; check Box B for genocide and conflagration."

European attitudes about governance are strange. They gave us Napoleon and King Leopold, and in their attempt to cast off the chains of the past, they would rather entrust decisions to an unelected, corrupt, and disdainful trans-national government, than to an unelected, corrupt, and disdainful king.

Good plan!
