Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
 The subordination of the market to social needs will either come from peaceful reform, or there will be a revolution.  Social democracy or fascism lies ahead, liberalism is dead in the long run, it's a question of what brings the market back into into the realm of social reality.

Nice one MfM.

I think that the "information revolution" is what makes Fascism unenforceable, actually, even though some see it as ENABLING Fascism.

(a) there are a lot more of "us" than there are of "them", and "we" are connected in ways we never used to be (eg ET);

(b) the "cock-up" theory - ie "they" are just effing useless, since if "they" were truly competent then "they" would be with "us".....

As for Social Democracy, well yes, but not Democracy as we know it, Jim, but new forms of "participative" democracy, as opposed to the current "representative" bollocks.
