Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There needs to be an article in the next treaty revision saying that nobody who has ever served with the Bundesbank may be appointed to any position of trust in the ECB.

Insane, the lot of them.

who are these people, we have their names, but who are they, really?

and who are the birds of similar feather they flock to?

lemme guess... the usual suspects...the utility companies, the MIC, the banksters, and the slimeball meatpuppets who are the interface with the hypermediated public, you know the donkeys we pin our illusional tails of hope onto when we go vote.

how do they face their children? how do they rationalise plunging a continent into perdition, to avoid losing even one cent on their euros? how do they glide from meeting to another without recognition or the opprobrium they deserve? how are they able to continue to exist surrounded by the fruits of their destruction, veiled by firewalls of force? in this age of free(er) information, why aren't their faces plastered all over as enemies of the state? have they vanished into the mist of our own inability to connect dots?

has the capture really gone so far that our very minds are enslaved as to a cult, so whole populations slide into collective stockholm syndrome?

TINA may ass, it's that we have been too well taught that any alternative is unthinkable, so it can be right under our own noses and we'll see right through it as if it weren't there.

how did we get so cognitively messed up? and other that blogviating, wtf can we do to wake up from this insanely perverse reiteration of the worst of who we are, ruling events with such orwellian effectiveness? is it that we have been lied to for so long, truth flies under the radar? lays like a diamond under windblown sand? waits like an acorn in dry moss for the moisture needed for its transformation to begin?

is knowledge what we need? is that the rain we await?

a big thanks to all here for the space to share these concerns, it means a lot to me to have found such a funny, hip and wised up group of folks to vent to/with.
