What cracks me up, vt, is that people think this guy's on the left, yet he writes sentences like this:

The party system of individual states reflects the divisions that mattered in the 19th and 20th centuries, such as the conflict between capital and labor. But the cleavage that matters most today is between pro- and anti-European forces.

At almost no time in recent history has capital so dominated labor. Labor's share of the economy is shrinking faster than at any time since we began measuring. But, according to Mr. Billionaire, the conflict between capital and labor does not matter.

If you're anti-EU, this type of thing can only be a good sign. They're not willing to give an inch to labor to save the union. They'd rather let it fall apart. So the pro-EU center-left will stay dead. The right meanwhile is even more openly hostile to labor. Yet, most people earn their living by labor. If the next move is to try to prop up a cadre of anti-labor Green Parties across Europe, the question is not whether it will succeed, but only the degree to which it will fail.
