Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
yeah, i've always felt that the resistance was psychological, and that the solution would be, to quote the tantric saying, 'it's the same way up, that you came down'.

in other words, personal, more than political...if the problem is located within man's mind, then the solution surely must lie there too.

with ripple as analogy, we can generate more and bigger effects, once we have put our own house in order, and our waves join with others heading in the same direction.

when the waves get big enough, the force enters into a political plane, the arena where personal balance or psychosis is writ large, with knock-ons and blowback that affect millions.

so a lot of folks gradually take the higher ground, leading by example, till the 100th monkey effect kicks in...

starting to happen, smells like the third act from down here in the stalls!

people are duped into thinking they have no power, and that their actions are so minute as to be entirely negligable.
that's so not true.

this reality that's coming down will be quite ruthless in rejecting energy models that depended on public apathy and knee-jerk compliance to survive.

what's left, after the tarot tower has fallen, will be those little islands of sanity that are mostly drowned in noise right now, but whose signals might well be all we have to reboot with.

thanks for the encouraging news, it is a bright ray of hope that more people are articulating such ideas...we need to dare to think out of the box more often.

if we're serious about survival.

as you so obviously are...

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
