Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Three decades ago.

I'd say the last significant bit of truly progressive legislation in the US was passed, in bipartisan fashion and signed into law by a Republican president, in 1972, with the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts and the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency.

American "liberals"/(self-described left) think today of Jimmy Carter as a left President. He wasn't. Religiosity in the oval office, deregulation in the economy, beginning of the second cold war (US military arms build-up).

And we know what they've done since...
