Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
 It's the consequence of the "de-sacrilizing" of the agriculture... The shift of values. It happened everywhere...!

The trouble is that the City needs this countryside ! While in the 19th century many small experiments were done with the relationship between the Big City and the countryside, none survived through the pressure of industry... And war!
Let's not forget that it's the 14-18 war that shifted France in the industrial time by killing most of the farmers. Society was definitely changed.

This one of the reasons I started these sort of diaries... Because we start a, so called, environmental era. That is still felt as fashion for most or as a nice motto for politicians.
One one side the "greens" that refuses any pragmatical project that doesn't serve their direct agenda, on the other the power of politics and wealth that will speak a lot but won't start the action... In the middle, most of us !

The era is a bit radicalized! There have been, there are, there will be, possibilities to think, and design a better territory... As a whole!
Not by peppering projects here and there, just to calm some voicing group. It's counter productive !

It is sad to say, but on such overall projects, people in Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and even Israel are much more attentive... Even if they don't have the capacity to start them.. Yet!
