    He is right, the last thing we need is an institutional crisis on top of an economic and healthcare crisis. There are things that work within the EU and things that do not, throwing away the baby with the bathwater is never the solution, especially when your answer is something that is unrealistic or will take years to decades to have a workable alternative.

    Me and people like me are to blame? Ha ha, ok bud, just you wait I'm going to make a call to Merkel to release those shipments.
    Wow, someone has a twisted view of Germany.

    Yes, people like you, not you yourself, reading, try it.

    So for any Greeks here. Initially market estimates were that we had a three month food supply. Within the supply chains, the current estimate has dropped to half because of the hoarders.

    What does better mean? it's not a plan or a vision getting rid of the EU alone would trigger an economic downfall for the Euro zone.

    Theres nothing better in the world than the EU.

    You should be grateful that we even did let you join after you ran away from Russia. Your country contributes exactly nothing to the EU.

    You can't say it's growing exponentially and then say it's not accelerating. I don't think you understand what accelerating means.

    European institutions don't die, they linger on forever. There's still an office for League of Nations in Switzerland. What are they doing, don't ask me.

    But it hasn't seen any serious reform since 2008 and the world of 2008 and the world of 2020 have nothing in common. It can't decide what it wants to be, a political union or a trade zone. Well, it's doing both and badly. The German economy is a continental parasite, it's industrial surplus a pathology which could not exist if not for this economic exclusion zone it has created, suffocating the periphery with it's export and carefully calibrated currency which facilitates those exports. You will live to see German economy decline rapidly and you will live to see the entire continent bailing them out.

    On the political front, it sees itself as a proprietor of some kind of narrowly-defined liberal ideas, blasting nation states for their internal policies yet when issues such as Nord-Stream 2 arise, it's just an economic Union in which the needs and wants of one member override existential worries of several countries.

    I don't expect for any of this to land on receptive ears.

    I still don't see a plan or vision that describes "better".

    I am not a President or Prime Minister or a neatly dressed bureaucrat. But I don't need to be one to see that there's something stinky and rotten and we should put it away. Some will say that reform ought to be sufficient but reforms in the current arrangement are impossible because the interests of nation states are so wildly divergent.

    But it does not matter. It is going to happen anyway, this Batsoup virus will merely accelerate it. Nothing, absolutely nothing has been done to make the coming crisis less destructive. My heart aches for the vulnerable and especially the European south which has been in decline and/or stagnating for the last 2 decades.

    You have assholes everywhere. There was this guy in Japan who got the virus and went on spreading it intentionally, hugging people and so on. He has died of it two days ago, so I guess divine karma, but not before he got dozen another sick.

    Okay I am not sure why I have to drag it out for you hypothetically you are granted powers that let you create the perfect EU what does it look like? all you have been doing is ranting, yelling DOOM and saying "better" so let's hear your vision.

    A warning for China from 2007.

    "the presence of a large reservoir of sars-cov-like viruses in horseshoe bats, together with the culture of eating exotic mammals in southern china, is a time bomb."
