Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We desperately need a democratically-elected body big enough to take on global companies.

Government is the problem, so to speak... In the modern enterprising democrasy, no one has appropriate access and significant infulence to governments but only multinational or similar companies. The people have "their say" once in a few years, and that show is manipulated handily by the media. While some NGO would celebrate a compromise law of their concern, any "respectable" company would have scored a bonanza of favourable laws and exemptions from several governments. Is there any light?
