It isn't limited to just the EU. It's perfectly rational for the majority of people to be ignorant to politics. It takes a lot of work to be informed and when you are the power you wield as an individual is little. Twitter does a great job of showing this since it's so easy for people to flaunt that ignorance, people can just post or comment on whatever thing comes to mind, then other people will link to whatever dumb thing is posted to show how uninformed the poster is, while being no better.

It also occurred to me, could the Capitol Riot here in the US pretty much had given the EU all the justification it needed to pass the TERREG without a vote?

Trump and his cronies inciting violence on Twitter probably giave the bureaucrats in the EU plenty of ammunition to get that shit through.
