Well, Europe is an empire without an emperor. And indeed he is right that the EU didn't emerge out of the will of one dictator, or a group of political fanatics. But I think Europe should be an economical union in the first place.
We Europeans have created our own market. But large companies invest in China to produce, and sell their goods in Europe.
That's capitalism and wrong. Why? Transport is taking too much resources.
So, I guess Europe will be changing politics in the future.
The new name will be European Federation of Communalist Republics.
