Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
100% agreement, jerome.

look to big media ownership and the pols who fawn on them for the hit to their narcissism for the cause of this, imo.

they want to undermine our sense of pride and contentment so the faceless movers and shakers can sell us more useless shit.

all dancing around the golden calf of corporate mammon-mind, where peple exist to serve money, instead of vice-versa.

where we all live in some cement dystopia, grateful for crumbs from out imperial overlords, who chew up lives and spit out empty industrial hulks after they have sucked the marrow from the people and the land, terrorising people who dare speak out against injustice.

 thanks to blogs like this perhaps we will arm ouselves with the necessary info to outwit these bottom-feeders, as our ignorance is their best friend, and with their trusty tool, the msm, they count on perpetuating the status quo, titillating us with gimcrack, superficial, ersatz punditry, while they slope away with the family silver.

it's going to take a whole lot of eddy-kayshun...

'free trade' is largely a con, at present...they know it, and dread that we wake up and recognise that smell of sulphur in the air!

stick it to 'em, j!

please continue to wake us up, for the future's sake...
