The European Union was inspired by a shared dream of a united Europe. But recent crises, both economic and political, have divided Europe and driven a wedge between its people and political institutions. Those at the margins of societies are increasingly scapegoated. People are suffering, and they want someone to blame.
GEORGE SOROS (Open Society Feb 7, 2014)
The European Union is in my view the shining example of an open and free society. That is why the current crisis is so personal to me. I am very concerned about Europe’s future and the potential dissolution of its open society.
