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

The answer isn't a world without power, it's one in which power has a social purpose.

Which means combating neoliberal ideology, recapturing governments from the moneyed interests, and using them to create a better world.

If the US and European governments are on the same page about the world that they want than then that is the world that we will have.

It seems to me that the rage for civil society solutions has at least something to do with economic elites control over the machinery of state when the franchise was extended.  Because they've lost at the game of political democracy, they think that they can slip the leash by undermining national systems that regulate economies........

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
