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

As last night's US primaries and the rise of the Swedish Democrats show a nativist Populism backed by millions of advertising/propaganda is a vote catcher.  The global financial meltdown is starting to have political consequences.  Unless the Left gets serious about addressing the deep problems the 'Washington Consensus' has created we're going to find ourselves right back in the 19th Century with nationalistic governments clawing at each other for Spheres of Influence.  That's a winning answer for the oligarchy; not so much for the rest of us.
