Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
'fee-market christianity' and 'christian free-marketing' are a frankensteinian hybrid mutant that got out the lab and are now chomping down on anything that we hold dear and sacred moves.

this has turned into a very interesting vintage ET discussion. both katrin and jake are doing an impressive brinking dance around incivility.

elegant calibration...


religion is the straw man here though, this goes deeper even, to the rights of people to private spaces to gather in, the line between public/private, whether dissent is ever polite to everyone, and the ugly underbelly of soft fascism, 2012 style.

PR serve to show very well how 'soft' that really is.

the older democracies have really screwed the pooch by throwing away so many of our own civil rights, putin's still catching up.
