The level of development Europe has attained is one of humanity's greatest achievements. One of the main reasons for this success is that the continent has been remarkably well governed. In every society, it is those at the top who set the tone and, as someone who grew up in Nigeria, I've seen first-hand how poor governance can rubbish a country and keep it from realising its potential.

That's why I appreciate Europe's leaders more than those who have not experienced government elsewhere. I do think it is excellent practice that Europeans constantly complain about their countries and demand improvements to how they function. To do otherwise would be to forgo aspirations to progress.

But Europeans should never forget that most people in this world would give anything to be able to live like them. So those who are lucky enough to be citizens of the closest thing to paradise on Earth should be more appreciative of what they have and less depressed about the future of this continent.
