Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The way I've come to see it is that our biggest problems is that we've come to believe all the ugly things that are being said about our countries in the English language press, and to repeat them ourselves, and it depresses us.

This is not to say that we do not have problems, but I refute that our countries or even our economies or our social fabric is in any worse shape that that of the countries so often touted as models (hint: their names start by U). But this is what is being said and repeated and believed by everybody and it's all lies.

Thus we have to fight the lies.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
