Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I agree that the climate crisis - which is already affecting us in the states (we're looking at water rationing here in CA in the next few weeks) - will help determine the outcome. I posit a political debate and struggle that'll last several decades but I agree that the next few years and particularly how we respond to these crises will shape the details and structure of that debate.

I don't believe all white males will sign up with a nativist libertarianism - as a white male myself I'm quite opposed to it. But I think that underlying Ron Paul's agenda is a defense of white male privilege. Part of building a pluralist social democracy is to show other white males that our needs can be taken care of without having to smack down other people's rights and equality.

And the world will live as one
