Sovereignty Anyone?

It would appear that during deliberations over the Greek financial bailout, France's President Nicolas Sarkozy reconsidered his country's continuing membership in the eurozone. But this is not about that.

His response raises an important question: Which kinds of pressures/threats to a political unit exert a centrifugal force (pulling apart) on the unit and which kinds exert a centripetal force(pulling together)? Now that's worth a weekend of ruminating, isn't it? Bon appetit!
