Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As if free-market capitalism was intellectually robust!

The problem is not the lack of an equivalently robust alternative, but that the left fears, probably correctly, that the alternatives simply can't survive the media environment that exists. And/or they themselves don't want to pay the price of the alternatives. All politics is personal, and the personal cost in a world where ones  status is directly linked to ones material display is too high for most people.
