Yes, egalitarianism has been ruining Europe for too long (though I’d better note that article isn’t terribly original but still possibly worth reading). Sadly europeans aren’t fighting against EU in big numbers yet.
Can it be so hard to grasp that competing regulations and taxes(etc.) in different countries help in finding the best policies for human societies? Well, apparently yes it can be, and yes, eurocrats hate the possibility that europeans can vote with their feet in Europe as long as they haven’t harmonized everything within EU.
