Should the eurozone debt be mutualised?

This question has been haunting everyone interested in the, well, world, for months now, and it is time to make a decision… at least in the debate promoted by The Economist magazine, which is about to close down. Last I checked, the score was 39% YES and 61% NO. I voted NO, because I think the political implications of mutualising the debt would be far too great to be acceptable to 27 countries. Europe is not America. But I’m happy to reconsider, if someone convinces me it is feasible to have that kind of integration in a stable way.
