The Roman Empire 2.0

Blogger No Pasaran has a proposal for Europeans who are uncomfortable with the use of English as the lingua franca of business, ideas & diplomacy - make Latin the official language of the EU:
Imagine the novelty! The entire sickly cartel, nearly-continent in size, run by priests, nuns, and a handful of squirrelly, verbally combative, and indecisive middle age scholars in corduroy and other peculiar garments. In fact it will be just like the old days when there were plagues and mercenaries.
