Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Like the Freedmanites, we must await the opportunity.  In the USA, the presidential election may be enabling, but will not be determinative.  However, more financial meltdowns combined with still higher energy and food prices along with possibly unforeseen developments could set the stage.  It would only be an opportunity, and unless skillfully exploited, would be lost. Under such conditions small forces can have large effects. Why should Freedmanites be the only ones who can benefit from shocks and disasters?
