The Barroso video (again)

One thing that I always find interesting about the European Union is the lack of interest it gives to the concept of individual human freedom. Commission President Barroso in the previous post's video (scroll down) mentions protection from this, protection from that, the power to combat global problems (other than homicidal maniacs in London and Edinburgh influenced by a primitive savage global ideological cancer), and no dilution of national identity. However, there is precious little about what the European Union does to free Europeans. Instead, it seems to come up with ever new ways to tie them down, with those hundreds of little Tocquevillean threads.
