World is saying No?
The world that you and I occupy or the world that is run by the power elites, the IMF, World Bank, the useless bureaucrats in Brussels and the corporatist fascists that dominate the wealth of the world? The answer is obvious.
The great thing about democracy is that you can change your mind. It makes space for spasms of anger as well as cool calculation.

Once dissolved, the union cannot be recovered.
