Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I recently read a quote from Harry Belafonte, who said though these times are indeed dark and hopeless seeming, there was actually a darker time in America (and in th World), and that was when widespread slavery existed. And yet, somehow that Amrican apartheid was defeated, as was the apatheid later on in South Africa, and if that can be defeated, anything can be. I respect his point of view...and value this perspective: there is always hope, though we must keep up the fight. This is true for the current greed trend...we must keep fighting it.

Excellent diary...
