Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There are only three plots for all the stories ever created by people: death, birth, union

No wonder that progressive politicians, activists do not get it. They are nicely quick to offer solutions to apparent problems, but... the masses want really something else. They would not like to tell exactly what.

The kumbaya mythology of some social-economic perpetum mobile is not deeply believable in this limited world. Too bad if only terrible reactionary populists perform for relatable monomyths. Beliefs in transformative heroes, transcendent trials, magic helpers, ultimate boons may be not rational, but they are perhaps archetypally wise.
