Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Very good laying out of reasons to be pounding heads against the wall.

Pessimistic optimist (some say term is skeptical optimist):

  • Pessimist -- because the situation is so dire, news getting worse, with seemingly a determination to ignore the implications

  • Optimist -- because one doesn't have a choice but to work for, hope that we find a path forward that averts this disaster (or, let us say, averts the disaster becoming a total global catastrophe).

Thank you ... I think.
