Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have seen quite enough to descend to a most basic suspicion: total corruption or suicidal collusion of the left leaders in the West, and then by "expert" advice or intimidation everywhere else basically. Yeah, that reeks of New World Order stepstones. But even a shallow conspiracy is feasible: infiltrate the leftish parties, push through media and from inside own men to the top, lull their core and base to a comfortable feeling of being represented, and then slowly turn around.

This looks like a helpless picture. But let's face it: the push towards this free market capitalism was very consistent, well organized and rather unopposed in the last 20-30 years. The left politics just stopped evolving - it actually reversed its holdings and sophistication, devolved. This makes most sense as an artificial, directed process. Now, we nerds here can hardly do anything to reverse the tide (if we ever tried to act). We just have a chance to foresee more objectively whether this is going further, take care of ourselves, and perhaps a bit more.
