Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You tell us that the problem is not undemocratic governments, or untrustworthy or myopic leaders. Or financial neo-feudalism. But then you tell us that the German Energiewende is being derailed by incumbent lobbies.

Our problems are political. Are our political problems a consequence of our lack of awareness, or is the lack of awareness a consequence of dysfunctional politics?

It's all about power, and how power shapes culture.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
