Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And if the population were educated in social responsibility and participation from birth, who knows how it might work out?

well, from birth might be a challenge, (nursery wallpaper, tattooed breasts?), but pretty damn soon after!

this point is crucial,imo, and cannot be over-emphasized.

right now most of the social programming during our most impressionable years has remained diffident at best, breathtakingly ignorant at worst.

which explains so much of the oikiness...
