up to the last drop: the secret water war in europe | europe

are we nearing the beginning of the end of europe?


americans don’t think much about europe, let alone what does or does not constitute the european ideal. mostly this is a matter of geographic realities, but in his new book, the end of europe: dictators, demagogues, and the coming dark age journalist james kirchick observes that when these matters do come up, american concern about europe often devolves into contempt.“there is a tendency among american policy makers and pundits, particularly those on the right, to hold up their collective nose at europe,” he writes. “they shudder at europeans’ deference to the state, their willingness to turn over so much of their incomes to the government, their limits on free speech, and their reluctance to pay for militaries, never mind use them. so widespread and deeply held is this conception in some
