Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I disagree with Cohn-Bendit about the European Left, though. It seems to me what they are trying to do is grope for an alternative model of globalization that preserves openness and generates more trade, but in a way that preserves rich-world living standards and doesn't put all the costs onto workers. They are trying to come to terms with globalization.

What do you disagree about with Cohn-Bendit? He is exactly promoting what you describe (adapting to globalisation and not putting all the costs on workers) with the additional sensitivity to ecological issues. On most topic I have found him to be pragmatic about tools while never losing sight of the long term goals.
