Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Same US it was 23 years ago or forty years ago when "we" took down Allende for ITT, Whitlam and others for various corporate interests.  The major difference is that not too many countries elevate a real socialist to the top job, relegating a few to lower positions where they can be quickly dumped if corporate feathers are ruffled to much.
