Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've left behind a brief spell of pessimism due to US politics, but not specifically Trump. The political rhetoric in the US is at a absolute low point. In Europe one sees the media covering rightwing politicians favorably and give progressives or politicians with a socialist-democratic agenda a hard time. As I quoted today, it's about content and getting the attention through new media. I place hope in humanity and the fact we are social beings that in the end will do good for mankind.

Greatest obstacle is the flow of money to propaganda by the state. Conservative think-tanks and NGOs are well funded, so we have to work harder to earn our place in readership.

Personally I got great news about my health a week before Christmas. So I am looking forward to a new year of challenges on an optimistic note.

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
