No. The EU has a number of the problems you mention with a lot of corruption and inefficiency and a growing division between the ruling elite and the ordinary people. However for all its growing autocracy, as others have said its nowhere near as evil as the Soviet empire. That was a brutal and murderous dictatorship. There is a potential, albeit I think still small it might end up going that way if its leaders continued blocking their ears to any complaints but I think its more likely to decline gradually and hopefully end without any great violence or disruption. Overall its a threat to peace, economic prosperity and stability in Europe and bad for the people of the continent, but nowhere near as bad as the Soviet regime.
