A grim test for European solidarity

The united Europe experiment was built on two pillars of solidarity. With the project under threat, it may not be enough for the continent's leaders to honour the nobler half of that vision.

Some words are the property of continental Europeans. You do not hear many Brits or Americans talking about "solidarity”. The expression belongs to the soggy (to Anglo-Saxon minds) consensualism of social market capitalism and to prophets of European unity. What’s happened lately is that solidarity has dissolved. This explains why the euro, and the European Union, are in so much trouble.
