Europe's future

Here is a relatively long essay examining several recently published books. Some basic concepts: (1) First world, second world, third world divisions are becoming fluid and complex. (2) A global economic experiment is taking place, between basic concepts inherent in the Anglosphere, the EU, and Japan. (3) The EU has problems stemming from lack of connection to the people. (4) Most problematic, the EU could push longterm problems out longer by forming an alliance with Middle Eastern states, trading political influence, technology, and continuing to allow Islamic immigration in exchange for money in the form of oil, possibly including China.

My summary, of course, is incomplete. Read the whole thing.

To me, it seems this is already happening. My question would be, is this a conscious decision one or several people have made, or has it just worked out that way?

Hat tip: Instapundit.
