While true, I don’t think this is any different in other jurisdictions. Though I guess one issue of the EU is that it is a vehicle for passing laws that would perhaps not go through in any of the individual member states. So I can totally understand that there is resentment.
This growing divide between the rich and the poor is perhaps the biggest danger to democracy. (The other is an ever-growing surveillance apparatus that might be implemented with the best of intentions (*cough*), but woe upon us when it is turned against the populace.)
