Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
i think that america is well disposed to be the perfect crucible for the kind of mass change we need...not because of anything to do with superpower status, but simply because the communication tech is so good, they mostly speak the same language, and there is so much talent and creativity that is being suppressed and wasted in the colossal balls-up that it has become.

how to get to there from here is the challenge...

When the US people are pulling together towards a common purpose they are capable of virtually anything, I believe.

At the moment it is a malign purpose - the pursuit of profit - that is pulling the US apart.
