Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not exactly a win-lose zero-sum game, but until we stop spending insanely on armaments and troop support and SUVs and plastotrash, we'll be zero sum on wages and living standards.

Don't worry about yourself. If you have access to a computer, either yours or a rental, you'll come out OK, so it's all right to fight for equality.

Every Chines and Indian isn't going to have a Mercedes, or even a Daihatsu, but transit will be better, basic food affordable, water drinkable, doctors accessible, and the Internet universal. Travel will be slow and expensive, housing basic, clothing simple.

No big problems. No need for military service, except in UN peacekeeping forces.

And so on. I figure a real income worldwide at about five to eight thousand Euros, family of four, with universal free basic health care, housing, internet, and so on.

I think it can work. Carbon consumption and pollution way down.

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
