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

was listening to this exchange:

BILL MOYERS: In this essay last week in "The Washington Post," you describe President Obama as quote "trapped between the governing elites who decide things and the people who are governed." When does he finally have to choose sides?

WILLIAM GREIDER: I think he has to choose as this story keeps unfolding, because I don't think it's going to change dramatically with these new plans announced. In fact, the anger will be stoked.

William Greider - Bill Moyers Journal - PBS

I may be a little hysterical these days, but when I heard that, the paranoid thought that had disappeared since December or so reared its nasty head again in my mind:

If Obama chooses the right side, and tries to truly do right by the "governed", then the "government elites" simply will not let him do it.  They will put him down.

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.

What's that old saying, "It's a good day to die".

These are absolutely OUTSTANDING TIMES to be alive.  What is there to be paranoid about?  We are in the middle of HISTORY.  What more could you ask for?  Did you sign up for that "long life, grandchildren at your feet, nursing home" gig and found yourself in the middle of ... THIS?  I for one could not have planned a better itinerary on old planet Earth.  On the brink of biosphere collapse, not to mention the potential demise of the dominant species.  Plus, I get to be on the side of the Good Guys!  It's like I signed up for some virtual reality, Total Recall, vacation.  It's got it all.  This is soooo cool!

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
