Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When the left/liberals go against the silent majority on social/cultural issues, it pushes the working classes into voting for the right and against their own economic interests. Why does this happen? Because the working classes of the West have become so wealthy since the war ended, that they now consider economic issues secondary to social and cultural ones.

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
