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

At least Lenin had a revolutionary strategy. And you?

good question...

maybe it's not the scope of the strategy as much as the virality of an idea.

an idea may be relatively simple, even banal, but amplified by sheer numbers involved can attain an unpredictably transformational trajectory.

OWS may not be on the front pages any more, but for a while there it seemed to have the potential for this.

at the end of the day, i think it may shake out to be less what people do to counter plutocracy, (ie get your head bashed in by goons, go to jail etc), as what they/we abjure, or withdraw support from.

discrimination in choices made daily at micro levels could play out surprisingly well on a macro level, sans direct confrontation or messy friction.

i wish i had more, better ideas, but i sense what i am failing to explain better than i can explain it, perhaps others may intuit something similar and build on that.

where needs must...
