Europe is made up of its nations and has been for hundreds of years.If the outcome of the European Parliament election were to be judged exclusively by the fact that an overwhelming majority of Europe's citizens cast their votes for pro-EU parties, the most fundamental point – the dramatic increase in support for Euroskeptic nationalist parties in states such as France, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Austria, Greece and Hungary – would be missed.Without France, little or nothing happens in the EU; together with Germany, it is indispensable to the EU's future.Given France's current weakness and the dramatic election result there, as well as the United Kingdom's bizarre path toward an EU exit, Germany's leadership role will continue to increase, which is good for neither Germany nor the EU. Germany never aspired to such a role; the country's economic strength and institutional stability has made accepting it unavoidable.For Europe, this would be a disaster; for Germany, it would be simply foolish.
