Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

If we could choose a god, it should be kcurie.

I've recently been discussing with a colleague who argued that it's nonsense that I, as a European, would still be "preaching" enlightenment values. One argument was that enlightenment was "on the streets" and in the books in Europe - how I'd wish...

What I wanted to write in the meta-diary was my hope that one of the goals ET should be to focus on the Anglo Diseases counter-strike now the economy of the USA is heading for the drain. Because I'm sure there will be a counter-strike, and the Europe.is.Doomed definitely reeks as one - so I guess ET is already mapping out the possible retaliatory narratives, and I'm glad. It's a matter of whether people are catching on fast enough to realise they're being lied to, again...

Hmm, maybe we need to consciously work at producing narratives, then.

When the capital development of a country becomes a by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done. — John M. Keynes
