The main problem is that around Brussels there are some language problems. But I have always found that it is the politicians and the press which magnify the problems. And the longer I look I definitely see (and the last years even more, around the world) that it is always politicians which make matters worse.

I think that epicycles worked for a large part. But what happened is that they were an incomplete model, that was always more and more incorrect due to more precise observations. It would be like trying to compute a sine wave by simple algebraic functions. It works up to a certain precision, but then it breaks down.
