The timeline doesn't have to be the same for the EU as for the USA. And the USA's structure should not be considered an ideal goal, obviously! But the advantages of federation over confederation are apparent in both cases.

Although the century is young, EU leadership is doing its damnedest to avoid bloody civil war: "unprecedented." Call me in 2068 by ouija board.

As for "advantages of federation over confederation", apparent agreement of the peoples, even those correspondents at eurotrib, remains to be seen.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
