Grandiose alliances showing age

The European monetary union, like
the North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-
tion in its spanning of improbable
assimilations, from the Baltic to
Crimea, Gibraltar to the Bosporus,
is showing the same self-imposed
treachery of overreaching vanities
in imperialism by another name, os-
tensibly for contrary purposes. The
consequence, of compelling the in-
congruous to bend to the unworkable,
has exposed a little shame, no one
could miss. Will this be forgotten,
as it has been forgotten yet again,
what societies are for?
