Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That too is overly optimistic, since we are now seeing in the US a coordinated effort on the right to resist demand destruction and to instead shackle all of us even more tightly to our vehicles. This proposal in Washington State is particularly insane, but also not surprising, since we are now in the opening stages of a war between those determined to preserve the forms and values of 20th century life against the effort to build a sustainable, stable 21st century prosperity.

Demand destruction will still happen, but it will take the form of more and more people being priced out of the ability to drive and given no alternatives, as we see a hardening of a two-tier society here in the US.

And the world will live as one
