The "far right" ie the "radicals" want to quit the EU, they want their borders and sovereignty back, what a bunch of crazy extremists!
As stated in the article you posted, This will not end well for the individual EU nations if the EU falls apart.
To say that this is a good thing is incredibly misguided, yes the European countries gain their sovereignty back but at what cost? Complete and utter economic despair that will drive people and their families into poverty...Also the central banks will still have a strangle hold on them and they'll be reverting back to the old system. How is that in anyway good..You seem to be underestimating how bad the consequences of such actions could be for all of Europe and on top of that the global economy.
I seriously think you should reconsider your stance on this issue.

If this happens, the few will still have all they have now and the man will suffer even more.
Really. At no point will those in control/with power/influence suffer.
Anyone remember the "Amero"?

I am eager to see the EU fall as well. I am an anarchist at heart.
The Bundesbank successfully continued its transfers of gold last year. In 2015, 210 tonnes of gold were transferred to Frankfurt am Main from storage locations abroad: around 110 tonnes from Paris and just under 100 tonnes from New York. ""With approximately 1,403 tonnes of gold, Frankfurt has been our largest storage location, ahead of New York, since the end of last year,"" said Carl-Ludwig Thiele, Member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank. ""The transfers are proceeding smoothly. We have succeeded in once again significantly increasing the transport volume compared with 2014. This means that operations are running very much according to schedule,"" added Thiele.
According to its gold storage plan, unveiled in 2013, the Bundesbank will be storing half of Germany's gold reserves in its own vaults in Frankfurt am Main from 2020 onwards. This necessitates a phased transfer to Frankfurt am Main of 300 tonnes of gold from New York and all 374 tonnes of gold from Paris.
That is an easy to understand example of what is going on in Europe.
The Canadian dollar is currently worth only 72 cents in the US, primarily due to the fact Canada is dependent on oil revenues. Perhaps the two countries are seen as having competing interests?
