This thread is only purporting prejudice. One out-group bias following the next. As anti-buddhist as one can become.
There are Buddhists in Europe. And there are a ton of people who don't give a damn where one comes from. There's a vast liberal base in Europe, and Germany in particular. And whereever I went, in the end, most people only want to live a happy live together. I have friends from Spain, Italy, Croatia, Austria, Switzerland, Finland, the U.K., Russia, Georgia, Turkey, ...
But you're right that the big financial bosses and politicians in power are not too interested in a "union", but more about their personal power. And they use the mass-media, to stir the samsaric wheel and keep people in agony, so they start to fight against each other. That's what currently happens in the U.K.
But don't mistake that for "the European people".
Sure, the Europeans (people) I have met have been, by and large, good people like everyone else I meet. I have cousins and friends in Europe. They're lovely. That's entirely beside the point; in fact, I suspect that your remarks aren't directed at me since I didn't generalize about European people, but I'm giving this post a go just in case.
You don't have to study much history to know that European states, European nations, European peoples have been extraordinarily proficient at all manner of conflict, and that in the last century it has fallen to the Americans* to put the pieces back together again. A united and integrated Europe is largely an American product. And the powers that be in the US and other financial centers would really prefer it to stay that way: predictable, steady, smooth... That was the point of my previous post. Put differently: The Americans want a pliable and exploitable Europe. (ask yourself, "exploitable by whom")
*The Soviets had a significant role here too, particularly in war casualties in WWII. I'm bracketing the narrative of the Warsaw Pact because that's not where the triumphalist nonsense of the "end of history" is drawn upon.
