Becoming Europe

The great Victor Davis Hanson on becoming Europe. It doesn't have to happen.

Great paragraph. (my italics)
When I talk to well-off Italians and Greeks who have substantial homes by
the sea not available to most others, one of three realities leak out: one, they
have family money made decades ago by their ancestors that includes ancestral
estates permissible before the period of supposed mandated equality of result.
In other words, theirs got theirs and then helped make laws so no one else could.
