Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks all for all your input. Unfortunately I don't have the time now or the days ahead to respond extensively. I have two quick comments, although view them more as reflections please.

  1. How come it wasn't possible to generate this level of insightful commentary the first time around, which would have spared all of us an earlier round of prickly back and forth?

  2. I fully expect the thesis to appear more frequently, including European media. If it is indeed the consensus around here that the idea proposed is nonsense, then your responses form the first draft of a commentary or opinion piece, though obviously in current form none would yet be acceptable for media. Perhaps you each could consider spending one more hour of your blogtime to gather your arguments into one proper post, straighten it out and have it ready at hand.
