Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
around 1970. Although I was in the peace movement , I felt things were getting too far with molotov cocktails, guns, explosives and hijackings. That was not my cup of tea. I gradually threw away historicism dogma, accepted economic analysis, balance of power, use of force in limited circumstances, etc.... I thought I grew up and the world became a little better. Socialism? Who cares. I cheered the fall of the Berlin wall. I applauded Ron Reagan for the end of the cold war. I thought I was on the right side of things. Humans are making steady, reasonable progress. We would not make mistakes of the past generation, I thought.

...until we had George Bush. Now I am no longer sure I (we) graduated from anything.

I will become a patissier, God willing.
