Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Corporate person-hood? Corporate liability? The legal obligation of the President and Department of Justice to provide equal justice for all? Limits to the ability of the wealthy to bury the population with practically uncontested, self serving bullshit? The diminution of the role of the 'free press' by consolidation and ownership by the incumbent economic elites? On and on.

The general public has been served so poorly by the existing public education system that most cannot make heads or tails of what has happened to them and they have been the target of deliberately confusing and distracting propaganda designed to keep the agitated and focused on things that don't matter to the elites. Right now I would not want to even try constitutional amendments. I think we need to wait until the present millennial generation has fully moved into adulthood.

With Donald Trump now having clinched the Republican nomination I think that the election in November will give us a good read on whether we have gathered enough support to contemplate making real changes and how long that might take. And I hope Sanders keeps his organization intact and functioning to continue to build support, starting Nov. 3, for more progressives in the congress in 2018.
