Another of those secular religions

Robin Harris, consultant director of Politeia, has an interesting piece in The Daily Telegraph today.

In it, he comments on the nature of "European federalism". His analysis is spot on:

European federalism is another of those secular religions, like communism or fascism, whose attractions prove so great because they reassure people who have lost their inner bearings that they are still on the winning side of History. Its proponents display the self-righteousness, the intolerance of dissent, the assumption that ends will justify means - including the subversion of a country's democracy - that their counterparts so enthusiastically practised.
Does one need to say more?
