I think European independence movements are bizarre, just as an outsider looking in. Yes we know, the lines were drawn in the wrong places after the war, yes we know, you are still mad because your neighbor conquered you in 1576, yes we know, those people in the other part of the country are lazy and all your tax dollars are going to them, bla bla bla bla bla bla.

 

European states are already tiny compared to the world's other highly developed regions. They are not going to solve their problems by splitting off, be it by splitting from the EU or by chopping countries in two.
