European Utopianism in Action: Evacuating 873 People from the Airbus A380 in 77 Seconds

In real life, this process will more likely go about as smoothly as the utopian Benetton fantasy has gone in the banlieus.

The most pathetic thing is how all the evacuees give themselves a little cheer once the last person is "safely" evacuated to the ground.

This sort of wishful, hope-and-fantasy-based magical thinking is at work everyday in the ideology of the EU and in our own Peter Pan-based Democratic Party.

Both of them would be funnier to joke about if they weren't so clearly doomed to be so tragic in outcome.
