  3. Hi Tim, Just discovered your work via CounterPunch. As someone who spent most of her life as an expat in various Eastern and Western European countries (with dual US/French citizenship) I suspect that Europe’s financial crisis was engineered via Wall St to bring down the welfare states, whose message is finally getting through to US workers and whose economies were our competitors. That the conflict is ever the same as in 1917: money/power vs. the people. (And yes, the US is becoming, or already is a fascist state.) Does this sound far-fetched?
