Without taking a view on the ongoing question of how to deal with the Refugee/Migrant Crisis that has several member states in its grip one can say that the way the EU rulers decided to solve (?) the problem has all the hallmarks of a dictatorial Edict.
As is always the case, the citizens of the Union were left without the opportunity to have their say on this crucial decision. Apart from that one has to wonder whether the EU should be allowed to decide this issue in the first place.
The principle of devolution should mean that all legislation is handled at the level of government that can deal with the issue at hand. Only those decisions that do not meet this criteria should be made at the next-higher level of government. If Greece, for example, is unwilling or unable to stop the influx of refugees/migrants than that is its problem. Individual member states may come to its aid if they wish to do so (but only if the citizens agree that their government steps in).
Greece having a disproportionately large army should be more than capable to control its borders. Not doing so just demonstrates a lack of willingness on the part of its leadership.
THE ONLY WAY THAT CITIZENS WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE THEMSELVES HEARD IS BY SUPPORTING DIRDEM - THE CAMPAIGN FOR DIRECT DEMOCRACY - THE WAY THE EU HAS ARRANGED FOR UNION-WIDE PETITIONS TO BE ORGANISED SEEMS TO BE DESIGNED TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INTERFERENCE IN THE DECISIONS OF ITS OFFICIALS TO AN ABSOLUTE MINIMUM
