Be Thankful

From the unctuous Euractiv website:

Highlighting the bloc's lack of political direction, the May paper raises issues relating to Europe's political, economic and international objectives as well as limits to further enlargement.

Chopin stresses that it is essential to clarify the aims of the EU in order to "define the Union's goals and shed light on the European project".
If history and common opinion is any sort of guide, we should all be thankful for the EU's lack of direction. Soren Kern summed up the alternative nicely:
The Reform Treaty, in its essence, is all about the centralization of political power by an unelected ruling clique in Brussels that wants to pursue its superpower ambitions free from the constraints of democracy.
