We NEVER "throw the baby out with the bath water", without referring to "The Precautionary Principle" first! Reactionary solutions are not real solutions. Sweeping generalizations only produce wishful thinking - and get back unwanted, unexpected, consequences. Plus, speaking for the "people" of any nation is ludicrous.
I remember, just months ago, maybe 6-months, the Guardian US editor, abruptly quit; who knows really why. (US version is out of NY) - (there are also the UK & Australian versions, all operated by the UK as a "Commons" entity, rather than privately owned).
The new boss is still an unknown, sorta. She could be leaning toward the current UK & EU & US, right-wing, corporate government dictates; however, her readership (in the US version) is decidedly on the left and it shows in the vitriol of the comments, reflexively written, when the Guardian blatantly shifts to the right, which to me, it seems, is gradually happening.
So, go figure. Lotsa far-right shenanigans are going on these days in Europe, England, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela - the long list is very disconcerting to those of us who value Love over hate. Example: Just yesterday, TeleSur, out of Valenzuela, (created during Hugo Chavez), usually a sane breathe of fresh, liberal air, called out His Holiness the Dali Lama of Tibet! Calling him an IMPERIALIST! lol Because he said, paraphrasing, "There are too many people migrating to Europe". Of course, any sane person reads this as a humble concern that these refugees have been DRIVEN OUT OF THEIR HOMES. Yada, yada, ya! lol Follow the dollar trail, I say. The search will certainly wind up at a corrupt politician's steps.
