Regardless of ‘Brexit’ Vote, Experts Say, E.U. Must Rethink Status Quo – The New York Times

Here’s an excellent article by Jim Yardley, NYT station chief in Rome. Yardley considers the tribulations for the euro, a debt standoff with Greece and a flawed approach to migration all having inflamed the angry nationalism spreading across the Continent and Britain.

Personally, I agree with the thrust of Yardley’s argument. For sure, the EU needs radical reform otherwise it will fall apart. The policies of the EU, often at Germany’s instigation and in Germany’s best interests, have been deeply divisive and unfair.

Despite everything, if Britain votes to Remain in the EU, it is likely to be an important catalyst for change. Europe has seen fascists in power before and the consequences were horrific. It is time for radical change not implosion.
