The European Constitution

Politics > EU
Euro Space: From Wired magazine, a different perspective on the European Constitution... Excerpt:

The overblown rhetoric directed at the "American Empire" misses the fact that the US reach is shallow and narrow. The lonely superpower can bribe, bully, or impose its will almost anywhere in the world - but when its back is turned, its potency wanes. The strength of the EU, conversely, is broad and deep: Once sucked into its sphere of influence, countries are changed forever. Europe is a state of mind that cannot be contained by traditional boundaries.

Also Bruce Sterling chimes in with his views. Different perspectives for a document that is passing us by in Europe almost invisibly.
