We Americans see a number of countries in Europe using the same currency 
called the Euro, same laws, and we see courts with jurisdiction between 
countries. It very much looks as if Europe is some kind of Orwellian 
melting pot losing its individual identities. Americans are not breed to 
be so docile as to easily give over its internal affairs to an entity 
called the World Court as Europeans have urged us to do.

Sam wasn't so far off the mark when he called Europe Europe. If you need 
to know what makes up Europe, just think who is it that  will accept 
Euro bills.
