Unlike the U.S. constitution, the Europeans have nothing to point to in order to save itself.

The EU will indeed collapse, just how soon that collapse will occur is the question. That said, in the wake of that collapse, I would rather see EU critical parties co-opting the party platform of the Vlaams Belang, one of the sharpest out there, that makes implicit calls for limited government, protection of national borders, safeguarding of property rights and a guiding emphasis on individual responsibility in place of drone-like reliance on the state.

NOTE: What we need in the wake of an eventual EU collapse, is an end to statism, and a resurgence of the rights of the individual, free from tyranny and oppressive governments, foreign and domestic, and an economy based on true free market principles.

The leader of France’s far-Right party has vowed that the European Union would “collapse like the Soviet Union” as she conspired to form what would be the most radical faction yet seen in the European parliament.

Marine Le Pen, buoyed by a weekend by-election triumph in southern France, criticised the EU as a “global anomaly” and pledged to return the bloc to a “cooperation of sovereign states”.

She said Europe’s population had “no control” over their economy or currency, nor over the movement of people in their territory.

“I believe that the EU is like the Soviet Union now: it is not improvable,” she said. “The EU will collapse like the Soviet Union collapsed.”

Ms Le Pen, 45, will next month travel to Holland to chart a joint campaign with Geert Wilders, whose anti-Islamic Freedom Party (PVV) currently tops national opinion polls for May’s European elections.
