Today's Steynism

The issue is not how to make the chaps in Brussels more "accountable," but why all that stuff is being dealt with in Brussels in the first place - why so much of what Tocqueville regarded as primary-school science can only be entrusted to the men in white coats back at the laboratory. Eurocrats who spent much of the Eighties mocking President Reagan's "trickle-down economics" are happy to put their faith in trickle-down nation-building: If you create the institutions of a European state, a European state will somehow take root underneath.
