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?

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.
