Combination of 1 and 5.

1) It is neoliberal corporatistic empire. Democracy? Forget it. These guys don't care what people think, and European Comission (whose members are not voted in power by people, but by Parliament – which is to say, put in by lobbyists) can veto any resolution of European Parliament. Not that politicians in Parliament care about people any more.
2) Main European advantage in the past was the fact that it is collection of numerous nation-states. EU is set to destroy that.
