Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The only thing that "works", we are told, is a more fragmented, individualized, competitive society. And far too many people believe that is where their interest lies, when in fact it's in the interest of an extremely wealthy few which most of them will never join.
This is because people identify with the wealthy, not with their fellow working poor.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
