Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Unfortunately, collapse is not enough.  We read daily about the most abhorrent behaviors at all levels of power, trickling down from the top, yet it does not crash and burn.  It´s worldwide, though the most destructive is the US because of its position, and it would take a global people´s revolution to bring it to an end.

I have little hope for that kind of movement because we are much too comfortable believing ´it will get better´ and we are too busy with our cozy, little lives...  On the other end, people who survive below the most basic human rights levels, are too powerless to rebel and are busy migrating to countries with unsustainable "comfort" levels.  

Talking with immigrants all the time, trying to explain to them that aspiring to a personal car is not the best they can do, they probably see me as the village idiot for being almost the only one who doesn´t own a car.  Can I blame them for following the "economic growth" example of our masses?

Our knowledge has surpassed our wisdom. -Charu Saxena.
