Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The left vision needs to be articulated and in the back of people's minds before the crisis. The problem with the crisis of the last 3 years is that there was no alternative narrative to take the place of market fundamentalism when the latter showed itself to be untenable. WHen that happens, the cognitive dissonance cannot be resolved by adopting an alternative worldview so the inconvenient reality gets shoehorned into the old narrative.

By laying out pros and cons we risk inducing people to join the debate, and losing control of a process that only we fully understand. - Alan Greenspan
