Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... but if ET can think about the under-TINA-unthinkable question of "after American Empire collapses, what then?", it will not be caught in moment of panic when things shift under people's feet ... the moment that the corporations can be expected to make a power grab under catastrophe capitalism.

And, yes, I was answering the plural as you Europeans in general, not European civil society in general let alone ET in particular ... but what Europe can do for good rather than for ill is the first step, after all, and then what European civil society can do to make that more likely, and then how ET can contribute to that.
