The Nominalist Approach

The political elites of Europe currently resemble the witchdoctors and shamans of a primitive society who hold fast to the belief that if they wish for something with enough faith, it will be magicked into existence.

Hence, the Presidents of Italy and Germany invoke the standard incantation before their publics that the European Constitution needs to be in place before the summer. However, the Irish Prime Minister, Aherne, is meeting Chirac to update him on the lack of progress towards a compromise. Within the next three weeks, we should know if the European Constitution will be revived.
