[carrico] Just look across the Atlantic to the prolonged agony of America
I guess it’s quite opposite: be glad that you live in a country whose politicians protect interests of their citizens. In our case, the worst threat for citizens of EU is European political elite itself - they are pursuing so called “values” politics at the expense of European prosperity and living standards of European ordinary citizens.
For example, EU is now expecting an additional immigration wave, this time from Latin America, see article here:
Basically, after Trump closed the US borders, Latin American immigrants take advantage of visa-free access to EU, arrive by air, and ask for asylum in countries like Spain and Belgium. They know that the processing will take years, and they know that even if their application is rejected, the EU taxpayers will fully take care of them in the meantime. And even if they are rejected, there is low probability they will actually be deported. They thus don’t risk anything at all. Yes, Spaniards will whine they have huge unemployment then, but EU will pay them the “hungry wall” (so called Juncker’s package - i.e. pile of money to create artificial jobs to mitigate unemployment), or they can increase their debt in which most EU countries exceed the permitted 60% GDP by large margin already… So this is how we do it here, in EU
