Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Aha, so you support the diversion of resources to maintain the indulgent lifestyle of the top 0.01% while the bottom 90% see their standard of living drop in a managed decline.


I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.

Eisenhower-level taxation of the rich is assumed, but there are a lot of poor people.

There are things government, and only government can do.

Defense, infrastructure, freedom, education, health care, should all be basic and guaranteed. Not SUVs, but 50 mile range electric cars, small tight houses, a small amount of electricity, gas, water, education, bandwidth.

Let the rich parade their slightly larger versions, but tax grandiosity.

Veblen was right.

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
