I’m amused by the fact that modern liberal opinion ferociously and rather righteously supports the current European Union settlement, which is in all but name the defeat of France by Germany, formalised into a mysterious headless ‘Union’ which never mentions its chief purpose, the institutionalisation of German dominance of Europe, while France is allowed to pretend to be a great power.
