What European Crisis?

June 17, 2005

Timothy Garton Ash's analysis of Europe (Commentary, June 12) is little more than panicky hyperventilation. What European crisis? In today's hyperbole, a problem is always a crisis and now, apparently, the EU's growing pains signal the end of civilization. The democratic process is inherently slow and noisy. Civilizations fall due to a timid unwillingness to change. If anything, the EU's vision is too bold and too imaginative. The EU represents the vibrant rejuvenation of the West, not its end.
