Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
it's truly sad, isn't it? things are no better here in suomi. nice ideas, probably nice people, but sincere green agendas are always marginalized; here, there, everywhere. beat down into submission. always and evermore. america is even worse, they can't even get a candidate on the ballot.

why can't the greens unite, and get a viable worldwide green movement going as you suggest? it seems a lot of people are green on the inside, where their thoughts are, but less so on the outside when it calls for action. they always seem to fold, and follow the path of least resistance. they never seems to possess the necessary political acumen to move in the direction of actually getting things done in the political arena. wonder why? ha,ha, hee,hee. it might be humorous if it wasn't so sad.

it's true, it is funny in how absurdly unnecessary so much suffering is, yet the punishers and the punished seem locked in some kind of unholy matrimony...

maybe one reason for lack of commanding, charismatic, green movement leaders is the inner inconsistency, cog-diss, between the lifestyle of a pol, jetting around, and the personal example that gives integrity to the persona.

the further you get into that kind of double-bind, the less power you have personally, the same power you'll need extra oodles of just to swim upstream, let alone inspire others to do likewise.

whereas supporters of the status quo have the massive public ignorance as current to carry them down the river of their own preconceptions.

it is tragic, how much more pain people will manifest before they look up from the sports page, or the celeb vamping.

what are you gonna do? i guess the planet has to get so mad at us that only pols who walk and talk green will dare show their faces, let alone ask us the privilege of our votes.

meanwhile we skry the graphs and wonder what miracle could save us...
