Why America Should Care About the Collapse of European Unity by Simon Schama in The Daily Beast. This perceptive historian of all things transatlantic retraces the reasons for Europeans to pursue "unity in diversity" -- currently via the EU and the euro. The failure of earlier attempts at this in the 20th century cost the world dearly. In its own interest, the U.S. must stand ready to come again to the aid of the "old world."
