Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Social Democrats, Christian Democrats, etc. are caught in a bind. In order to get the funding to win elections they have to subvert the principles on which their parties were founded. The only solution is to limit the power of concentrated money, but all action has been in the opposite direction. Now, with governments and media firmly in the hands of those representing concentrated money, the great mass of people is being systematically misdirected in ways that subvert the very concept of representative democracy. To reverse this it becomes necessary to convert angry knuckleheads into voters who support limits on the power of money. I am uncertain that there are enough of the merely confused with which to form a majority. Time will tell.
