Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I fully agree that the EU looks like post-democracy.

But so do both the country I currently live in (the UK - which is not bound by Maastricht) and the one in which I was born (France, who at some point gave all levels of power except the EP to an allegedly leftist party, only to get right-wing economics if, admittedly and that was welcome, left-wing social policies).

Post-democracy seems to be a feature of our times, one which we must fight, but not, I think, one limited to the EU. International trade agreements apparently among the major culprits.
