France's "Non" Vote
If you've been really living it up this Memorial Day weekend you may not know France rejected the EU constitution (448 articles!). Further European integration grinds to a halt, and who knows how long the political economics behind the euro can last. Those who fear the rise of a global superstate shouldn't worry. With examples like the splintering of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia this historic trend is not to unify in a formally politically way. The glaring counter-example is the U.S. It's amazing how 13 different former colonies with different cultures, economies, and interests could end up agreeing to unite. The U.S. is the exception to the rule.
