Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Obviously there are important differences between US domestic politics and European domestic politics, but I wonder to what degree the European future will be characterized by a similar contest between a regressive corporatism and a renewed and reinvigorated social democracy.

Ultimately, I believe that the progressive, socially democratic American future lies in creating a strong working relationship with the rest of the world. And I believe that has political dimensions - we need to build a global political movement that links domestic political movements together to advance common causes to solve common problems. A crucial fight in the USA in the first half of the 21st century will be about whether we embrace this internationalist politics or shun it.

And the world will live as one
