There's so much wildly inaccurate drivel in there, it isn't even worth the bother.

Can't even get the fundamentals right. Or the source.
It was about a balanced REPUBLIC, denying power (because nobody can be trusted with it), under the Rule
The Revolution that kicked it off full time (large areas of it originated in Pre Imperial Roman Europe
- e.g. The Druid "No God, No King, No Man, is above the Law", with King Alfred the Great re codifying that Law as the Common Law, Magna Carta, etc), was the 1688 Glorious Revolution, the 1688 Bill of Rights which established the first balanced Republic in World history
(what the Constitutional Monarchy is supposed to be), gave America its first Bill of Rights circa 1700 AD (in gratitude for assistance given with the Glorious Revolution), thanks to John Locke, perhaps the greatest genius of all time, who by inventing the Scientific Method -Empiricism - proved the lie and despotic tyranny of Divine Right, and thanks to Empiricism, gave us the means to acquire the modern World.
You can't even find John Locke in any Education syllabus!
The EU is nothing to do with Democracy, it is a Power Grab being carried out by people that are supporters of Divine Right, and they stand for everything that the Rule
of Law opposes, which is why they despise the British and American systems so much, and will do all in their power to destroy any trace of them.
Why do you think the period that includes the Glorious Revolution of 1688, despite it being one of the most important periods for the whole World, if not THE most important in history
(John Locke succeeded where 1,000's of years of philosophers had been ripping their hair out at their failure to solve the self destructive inevitability of all three possible forms of Government), isn't even taught in any School
or University, and reference works now have a large and noticeable blank where the period has been censored out?
As for "most" European kids
forming lifelong friendships due to childhood social contact, you are deluded. I was part of such things when they first started, and almost NOBODY keeps in touch for long.
This touchy feely sorry excuse for EU 'integration' is completely detached from reality, as are these people involved in so called Education that are all too keen to grab the EU propaganda grants, and the lot of them need cleaning
out so they can take their nonsense with them.
PS. Where do you think America's Founding Fathers got it all from?
