Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
jefferson is one hero to me too, warts forgiven.

those quotes are priceless too, as befits a philosopher-king.

with all the wise warnings we have had in plain sight, and the stirrings of intuition that the system is so seriously fucked up as to have made a crapshoot of some fine thing that should and could be honoured, instead of betrayed.

we just have to find our truths the hard way usually, but it's always worth trying to make it easier!

hopefully it's incremental, and we can eventually tip the scales back into balance, grain by grain.

thanks for your posts, folks, i couldn't think of what to say as a seed comment, the quotes had bereft me of words... how can we say again what has been said so elegantly already?

i keep hoping we will find a magic lever to lift off the burden of ignorance that keeps us acting against our own species' interests, how did we get so dumb?

descarte's split vision?
