Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Excellent article ... I am working on a diary to explain how the Silicon Valley tech community has become an essential part of the Pentagon, U.S. Government and the War Machine. Influence beyond the funding of politicians by the Wall Street oligarchs.

The oligarchs feel mostly at ease with Conservatives like Tories and the GOP, but not exclusively. See the distraction of "Russian" influence so we forget about Facebook, Cambridge Analytica, AIQ, SCL and Robert Mercer / Paul Singer / Sheldon Adelson / Koch Bros.

Another distraction offered by these oligarchs are the eurosceptici and the climate change deniers. Sometimes they are succesful by the young voters of the Conservative party ... the growth of the Green movement is urgently needed as a political force.

Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing.
