Talk – ‘Why We Need Europe'
For some time now, the traditionalist Right in Britain and on the continent has been animated by opposition to the European Union. The most successful alternative British political party is defined by being anti-EU. And—let's admit it—we all enjoy raging against a bureaucratic superstate that seems, at once, impotent, annoying, clueless, and totalitarian. Unfortunately, our "anti-EU-ness"—our current negative identity—is blinding us to both reality as well as the best political path forward for Occidental civilization.
