Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Same here, but I went a step further: I now believe that any excessive integration would be a bad idea. For several reasons, but I leave just 2.

With integration there is a single point that can be taken up by power interests. With 30 nation states, the same power-hungry interests have to be successfully 30 times.

Diversity is compromised by excess integration. Diversity sometimes brings along bad things (think 20th-century fascism in Southern Europe) but it also can bring about good things (think European social model in the North). We need to try different things, to find the best ways...

Diversity is better than uniformity.
