Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks izzy...good reminder of what's not usually in the msm...

if it were not for all the attention given to katrina, i think many people worldwide would still be believing the myth that unrestrained capitalism is a golden goose that benefits all levels and classes of society.


the unglamorous underbelly is what you have portrayed here.

slightly ot, but did anyone see that horrifying documentary on the people who live in the rat-infested sewer system of new york?

totally nightmarish, and the amazing thing was how organised they were down there, and how accepting the inhabitants were of their lot.

meanwhile the media is full of lying ads for 'lifestyles', instead of shaming the gvts and people who van perpetuate social systems which permit and foster this inequality and lack of compassion.

well done for trying to redress the balance.
