Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
This merits a very long answer but I don't have time for that. So I'll say it without the nuance.

Like many left-wing blogs, ET is an antidote to the meaningless, self-satisfied and often spectacularly uninformed discourse in traditional media, which is pulling the centre of what is 'acceptable', 'serious' and the very idea of what we can do to the right. By participating we contribute to the antidote, co-create meaning, expand the scope of what is politically possible in our minds.

There are many other 'things' ET is 'about', but I say that is the main thing.

There are many other blogs out there doing the same thing, but ET is one of the best and at the same time the only one adapted specifically for Europe.

As a reference, see redstar/jerome's post Why we blog
