Why the EU Constitution is bad

What in the world is going on? Many people are writing good things about America lately.

First, I find a BBC reporter writing a love letter to America.

Then, The Australian chimes in.

Talking about the EU constitution, The Telegraph ends the piece with this:

It would weigh scarcely anything extra to throw in the US Constitution with each envelope, thus offering the most instructive possible comparison.


Second, I would draw attention to the opening words of the two documents. The US Constitution begins, famously, "We the People…". The European Constitution begins, "His Majesty the King of the Belgians…". That gives you a fair idea of the different spirit of each document.

Be sure to read the whole thing. Hint: Charles Moore hates the EU constitution.
