Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well if it really is disillusionment rather than real world responsibilities that are keeping people away, then I think it's time we all stopped feeling sorry for ourselves.  Bad and all as the current situation is, it pales into insignificance compared to the situation prior to and during the Cold, First and Second World Wars, and any number of famines and wars before that.

The world as we know it today - for all its faults - wasn't built by good people who tired of the fight and stayed at home mumbling into their beer. Brexit will happen if progressives stay at home and not fight the pro-Brexit disinformation campaigns... The far right are rising  (in small part) because progressives are withdrawing from the fray, their finer sensibilities insulted.
