What's happening with the European Union? Why is it swallowing up swathes of countries at different levels of social and economic development?
It occurred to me that some of those driving the EU project may be working with the aim of developing a power block to rival the US - now that the US dominates a unipolar world.*
So. The thought for today: on the basis of world events of the past few years, is the European Union a more ethical power block than the US?
If the answer is yes, then a corollary: is it so only because it can afford to be, as a relatively junior entity?
*Of course, it won't be a unipolar world for long. Even without the EU, China and India are rapidly emerging forces that will play major roles on the world stage within the next few decades.
