Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Being old enough to have understood the evils of McCarthyism in real time, I despair for politically involved people, what with the ease of googling people on the Internets.

Even having an opinion of any kind is subject to trolling, doxxing, and twitterstorms. I myself offended a mental case, now deceased, and he invented an elaborate chain of improbable events tying me to crazy cultists in San Francisco, which due to his obsessive iteration of my name comes up very high when I'm googled.

Strangely, I also accumulated quite an FBI dossier during COINTELPRO, mostly by running an alternative newspaper in a very rightwing town, Spokane. Pretty much worth it, but I feel for those without my combination of high technical skills and frugal lifestyle.

Enjoy your data-scorched lives, folks. It ain't gonna get better...

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
