    Abstract

    The EU is in the most serious crisis since its beginnings in the 1950’s. Never before has there existed a realistic risk of implosion: a collapse from inside, at the least a significant and serious decline of cooperation, cohesiveness and common action, a loss of ambition, possibly ending with no more than a loose free trade area. It is time to remember what the European Union stands for, and it is time to take to heart what Abraham Lincoln said in 1858, some years before the beginning of the American Civil War: A House divided against itself cannot stand.
