Captain Swing - I think it's much more likely the rose-tinted glasses are worn by people whose grandparents, or parents, were alive at the time. It's today's young people who see only a "greedy, murderous empire building history" and overlook the benefits - or at least, the intended benefits - of a big trading bloc. Some other nations' empires were far less benign.

Or am I showing my rose-tints?
