Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
OK, so I'm either an idealist (very possible) or all I'm saying is that the current system simply doesn't work. Kind of like a blown engine ... somewhere along the way you have to accept the fact that you ran the engine out of oil, it's a huge fused block of metal, it will never function again as is, and wishing won't change that. Example courtesy of my ex-wife less than 3 months after we were divorced decades ago ... I just love that story.

Time to go grocery shopping.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

What its not supposed to be is to work so that an aristocracy can use the system to secure their position against threats to their inherited wealth.

Which is how it works now, with a strong corporatist wing in each of two potential governing parties and with the establishment of a new corporatist aristocracy.

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