Despite decades of institutional development seeming to create a more integrated Europe, the continent remains more divided than united. ++ Europe's different cultures are not spoken of because it is politically incorrect to do so. ++ Today, Europe's political composition obscures the cultural emphasis with which it began. ++ Some Eurocrats seem to be forcing unity onto the people. ++ The appeasing catch-all slogan "unity in diversity is an obscenity". ++ Europe needs "integrity without integration, coherence without cohesion".
