Europe needs integration, not harmonization
Europe is not a house where everyone lives under the same rules, but a village in which all the houses work together. At least, that was the original vision. Today however, harmonization, under the guise of deeper integration, is the dominant philosophy, a dogma being used to silence dissent and brand skeptics of harmonization as “anti-European.” It is a pernicious trend, since Europe’s strength derives from its variety.
