Project Syndicate: Soros says grassroots resistance can make Europe great again

BRUSSELS, Belgium (Project Syndicate) — Today’s European Union needs both salvation and radical reinvention. Saving the EU must take precedence, because Europe is in existential danger.

But the threat also comes from within.
