European Union is one of the currently most advanced attempts to find or design from scratch a local solution to globally produced problems; and while engaged in such trials, to put to test an answer to Coetze’s question, from quoting of which we have started: the question "of why life must be likened to a race, or of why the national economies must race against one another rather than going for a comradely jog together, for the sake of the health". Perhaps Europe is a utopia, but it is an active utopia, struggling to coalesce and consolidate the otherwise disconnected, multidirectional actions. How active that utopia will ultimately turn, depends on its actors.
