Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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.
