Your argument overlooks the portion of the populace who did not support any of the parties or programs involved in this debacle - in most situations they are the majority. It doesn't matter if individuals understand the likely consequences and oppose the policies; or if they understand little until their butts are bitten; or if they hide from understanding because it's just too difficult or scary. When the shock hits, they are victims.
Our task is - I repeat - to be ready with a succinct analysis and a program which can build a movement. JakeS' diary succeeds in that with a little editing. I ask again, will the ET powers-that-be support this project, despite IM's protests?

(I am a fairly regular ET reader and I never thought ET was a power or thought itself a power)
Any Op-ed can be composed on-site and signed by those who wish to do so with or without editorial endorsement, but people feel it's a different matter to identify the signatories as "ET contributors" without asking for permission first.

People have written Letters to the Editor and Op-Ed pieces, Jerome for one, as a "contributor to" or "editor of" European Tribune with no vetting. Back a couple of years ago a consensus was reached that people should get an OK (at least from Jerome who pays all the bills for this thing) before presenting themselves as speaking for "European Tribune."
