Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If only European elites began to realize this.

Given the recent discussion on "What is Europe?" I feel it is fair to say that "European elites" is a pretty big one. I'm interested if you'd care to narrow it down a bit, perhaps with an example?

so I haven't been following all discussions closely.

For a start, I would say European business, political, and academic elites. But I'll try to look at the discussion "What is Europe", and then get back to you on this.

I didn't mean to sound as if I am lecturing. The mention of the other diary was to explain why I think that it's useful to say something more focused than "the European elites." If only because, it is theoretically plausible that if you are "elite enough/the right kind of European elite" (e.g. the very rich kind) then a society like Russia seems to be more to your benefit than one like the "USA at it's best" or "Europe at it's best."
