    Any history of the European Unionreiterates how the lesson of the war wasthe need for European unity, the another"lesson" of history is that political extremismof the inter-war period was the result of massunemployment and untrammelled socialinequality. Hence the 'class compromise' ofthe post-war decades: keynesian economicsand the welfare state, which together ensurednot just rising real incomes but crucially lessinequality. christian democrats (and, in Britainone nation conservatives) now modernised theirunitary conception of the national society toacknowledge popular interest representation.This compromise was ruptured by the Thatcherrevolution. Yet until 1990s, this belief remainedmostly an Anglo-Saxon eccentricity. Todayhowever, for European business and politicalelites, what seems to really matter is the globalmarket, certainly not European society.
