Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I feel this site spends far too much energy on introspection and too little energy on the enemy.

Well, a certain instigator of mass murder probably explained that one;-
 "Henry Kissinger once said: "University politics are vicious precisely because the stakes are so small."

We aren't making a difference in the european dialogue, so we lack an underlying project which drives our conversations and keeps it on-track. We are reduced to being a group of disparate individuals who share a roughly similar political view. And given the multiplicity of our cultural backgrounds sometimes, in a written medium, we're gonna get things wrong in terms of how we say things or "hear" them said.

It is the biggest value of the meetups is that, seeing people face to face makes you much more tolerant of their foibles because you have an imprint of the individual as a person rather than just a faceless sig.

keep to the Fen Causeway
