Exported by the Europeans, or more exactly by the "Eurolanders", Spaniards, Portugese, French, Greeks, Germans,... all citizens of the Eurozone, because they perfectly understood that the starting point of all this mess is oversea, the "Indignados" of the world, now march off the United States, the first place they converge back to proclaim the end of capitalist despotism is the Eurozone. An error of switch? Are Euro places really worth than Wall Street or the City? The lull we had on the front of the attacks against the Euro didn't last very long. The hidden guardians of OWS movement successfully achieve their goal: loop the loop, and new lords will replace the old kings.

Ok they occupy Wall Street. Now they claim to expand their action worldwide, but pretend first to occupy Frankfurt and Paris, and the whole Eurozone monetary and banking centers, those would be even worth bandits of the earth. Worth than Wall Street or the City!? The lull we had on the front of the attacks against the land of the Euro didn't last very long. The hidden guardians of OWS movement successfully achieve their goal: loop the loop...

Isn't it strange that it is precisely the Eurozone that the spread of the movement is targeting now? Exported by the Europeans, or more exactly by the "Eurolanders", Spaniards, Portugese, French, Greeks, Germans,... all citizens of the Eurozone, because they perfectly understood that the starting point of all this mess is oversea, they now march off the United States, and the first place they converge back to proclaim the end of capitalist despotism is the Eurozone?
There is an error of switch, isn't there?

If they target Europe, and search a legitimacy of their movement, than rather the City or Zurich? And if they target global occupation of places of the financial and monetary abusers than rather the Bahamas (USA), Cayman Islands (UK), the Channel Islands (UK), Panama... and the plenty other American and British tax havens on the earth? Where are the occupy movements on these places? The money of the 1% is there!

Are we fool enough to think that American people give a damn about us? They are fed up by their own problems, their wars, their social despair, economic decrepitude, politcal disintegration, their federal states are drowning in debt, their public schools are closing, and above all their first black president, the one who was the embodiment of all the changes, social, economic, political, peace,..., is brainwashing them with continuous attacks against the Euro and the Eurozone countries that do nothing to save the world debt! Those who reimport the world revolution in our countries are playing with European disorder, to allow to keep their system ahead. Behind are the hidden forces of new world order(s), I don't know which ones but they are running.

Yes, I believe the globalisation has the limits of those who, like Soros the capitalist great defender of anti-capitalism, don't want the system to collapse, they are the guardians of the overflows, they play opportunities on the back of the 99%, those citizens who foolishly follow people who predict they could be freed from any kind of despostism without proposing any kind of new governance, spreading the movement wordlwide without clearing their own problems, without any trial. The Arab Springs targeted first leaders and their corrupt vision of governance, not the "system".

The world revolution is a fake, the worst outcome would be World War III, which would be of any type than anything we have experienced, because it would awaken all the demons, lead to social, ethnic, religious,... unrests, it would be led by forces proclaiming all to be issued from citizen-based power, that no one could control. Egypt, Syria, where dark powers cling, already knows the beginnings of such disintegration.

New lords who will replace the old kings? If we want people to keep the power we have to address our politicians and their parties, those who sit well protected in their parliaments, economists who denied the obvious collapse, those who are struggling to maintain the all-powerful dollar hegemony in the world and do not accept that other powers could emerge in the world.

We have to show that we are able to rewrite democracy and History. Let's start with our own mess. If we fail inside our own zone, the Eurozone, nobody will care about our future, we will be swept away by all those who today are hoping that we explode. If we succeed to change our world, to reinvent and impose our way of a democratic governance, we could become again an example for the others. For that we need to be constructive ourselves, inventiv with new tools, don't fear to project in the future. For that proposals are on the table, proposals for six key reforms for a democratic governance of Euroland.*

The young "Indignados" struggling in Spain deserve another kind of respect. The babyboom generation, the retarded 68ists, the nostalgic of Trotskyism, and all the nice utopians of the world, once again steal their future...

Intriguing, cynical, I would say Machiavellian, comments, that seem oblivious to the reality of global interconnectedness within Western civilization and indeed the world. What happens in the US affects the EU and vice-versa; what happens in Greece affects Germany and vice versa. Perplexing too that attack on the concept of utopia which is indeed the crucial problem: loss of utopia means a loss of vision and hope and ideals based on the loss of history and memory.

On Monday October 24 at the Deutsches Haus at Columbia University in New York a lecture is sponsored by Enzo Traverso, Professor of Political Science at the Université de Picardie Jules Verne in Amiens, France. He is one of Europe's most distinguished intellectual historians, currently visiting Cornell's History Department as the Luigi Einaudi Chair in International and European Studies.

This is the abstract of what this quintessential European will be elucidating on Monday: One of the main features of our current perception of historical time—the regime of historicity of our societies—is the lack (or the loss) of all prognostic structure: the tension between past and future described some decades ago by Reinhart Koselleck seems broken. The turn of the twentieth-first century shows a world shaped by a permanent acceleration without utopias and with a present haunted by an invading, traumatic past, made of wars, totalitarianism and genocide. With the help of Reinhart Koselleck’s semantics of historical time and Siegfried Kracauer’s hermeneutics of the surface—the interpretation of the manifestations of mass society, first of all the images, both photographic and filmic—we can try to explore some dimensions of the landscape of this new fractured memory.

If what Professor Traverso is saying has any validity it appears that the loss of utopia is the problem to be reckoned with and that Machiavellism power struggle analysis are wholly inadequate for the task.

P.S. The title of Professor Traverso's lecture is the following:

Haunting Pasts: Rethinking the Relationship Between History and Memory at the Turn of the Twenty-first Century.
