Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just read it, Alexander, and I think Galbraith hits as close as it is possible to hit on what has happened in US since Reagan.

This subject deserves serious analysis(think the phenom turned up first in Britain with Thatcher), with more reason and citation than rhetorical self-satisfied European snark and flammibles that has thus far dominated the discussion.

And thanks OldFrog, for keeping the "American Exceptionalism" pole-ax in the armory.

Maybe we can have a serious discussion on the issue.

Will write more tomorrow.
