Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
OK, to simplify, let's define "the crisis" as the economic depression into which the policy decisions/non-decisions of EU leaders precipitated us, in reaction to the Eurodollar liquidity collapse.

In which case, we can be in complete agreement.

Once we have solved this crisis (har), with resumed economic growth, we will indeed be back in the (relatively) comfortable position of looking for solutions for the underlying resource-constraint crisis, which will have been exacerbated by the resumption of growth.

More to the point : we should employ a bit of shock-doctrine tactics of our own. Both these crises illustrate the urgent need to reduce economic inequalities, to restart the economy (purchasing power to the people who need to spend) and to afford the transition to sustainability.
