Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The social democrats and centre left, having gradually given in to economic-liberal ideas, are all at sea with no analysis of the situation, while the harder left still falls back substantially on what are older views and is unable to appear to offer anything new.

The masses of salary and wage-earners are adrift with no offer of a complete, hope-bearing narrative from the left. Large numbers of them are tempted to take the only ideology in town, and believe that yet more economic liberalism is what's needed to move ahead and reach the good life.
