Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Nothing can save it now.  The needed ideas for successful reorganization have long since been driven to the fringes.  The only thing left is the looting.  Capital can only accumulate more capital, which means the looting will continue until there is nothing left that is recognized as having value.  

The concrete side of this is social disruption and population die-off.  If the powers that be have a plan for saving their own skins, they are not advertising it.  Right now they seem mainly focused on the looting.  

The Fates are kind.
