New Imperialism, New Nationalism

The News Junkie over at Maggie's Farm passes on this article about EU officials letting it slip that they think of themselves as a new empire. When you add in all the European rhetoric about the EU being important as a counterweight to American power, the truth emerges as to why they fear us as imperialist, ultranationalist hegemons.

It's because they are imperialist, ultranationalist hegemons, and they can't conceive of people using power any differently. They just tweaked the idea of nationalism a bit to describe a panEuropean nation, to hide the truth from themselves.
