Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think there is something deeper as well, and it lies in the fundamental emptiness of financial capital. There is a vacuum or Black Hole at the heart of the system because we attribute "Value" to something that is in fact its antithesis - a claim over Value or IOU asserted ex nihilo by credit intermediaries.

But my approach these days is no longer to attack the existing system - there's no need, it's doing a wonderful job of discrediting itself.

Instead, my strategy is to point out and facilitate as best I can the emerging new alternatives to conventional wisdom and allow people to make their own comparisons.
