Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is just no gas for modernism anymore.

Modernism that so disproportionately benefits the elites does seem to be increasingly discredited. The currently dominant 'globalization' the reducto ad absurdum of the Enlightenment value of 'univerasalism, is only being advanced by elites renting or hiring the politicians and has very little popular support. Unfortunately the only ready alternative is 'traditionalism', which throws us all back on the whims of the elite. We are left with a fruitless dichotomy which must be transcended if we are to survive. That is the test that matters.
