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

Thank you for the advice. Check is in today's mail. Time to move on. On the bright side (there's always a bright side) it gave me time to revue all of the injustices I suffered in my lifetime and those suffered by others that I ducked. Wonderful planet/species you have here. Constantly abusing each other, over-breeding. Great place for a vacation if you don't have to live here.  ☮

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

I certainly agree that there is no shortage of injustices we need to remedy and harms we need to mitigate, but, if the last 50 years shows us anything, is is that, through collective action, we can right some of those wrongs and mitigate some of those harms -- or we can, through inattention and resignation, allow them to return.

Eternal vigilance is a steep but necessary price to pay for a livable society and planet. Else we will all be bound by Sisyphus' curse.
