Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think it was possible... and it could certainly be possible now... but not with a high technology-high service economy.

So, I can see a change in the economic structure, or more probable, the reality will strike the predatory group and force the masters of the universe to face other masters of the universe.

I also think that the real problem is not taking rights from workers, but keeping financial and asset power in front of wages. they would not mind if everybody grows and wages also grow.

if they go after future income, privatization of pension plans , etc.. the system becomes easy to break.

The problem here is that all the masters of the universe want the same thing now, keep a small growth defleted economy, but if reality hits again (Keynesian reality) they may realize that not all of them want the same thing.

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
