Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It is however difficult to position people within the PS, because their statements and programmes follow internal tactical goals rather than political strategic positioning.

So, what does the PS stand for on economic and social issues apart from promoting the various factional leaders?

My point is that you ask for more substance from Modem's positions than you admit of the PS's positions.

You didn't understand what I meant. I am precisely enraged at the lack of substance of the PS position(s).

I blame the PS for devoting all its members' time and energy to internal infighting when they should spend them on political/economical/social/environmental theory, i.e. building viable alternative models and policies. This lack of substance is particularly worrying at a time when, thanks to the evident failure of the dominant model, there is a window of opportunity for alternative models.
