The European Commission is beginning to shift away from its current climate policy: “For an industrial renaissance”, the needs of the economy should play a key role in setting environmental objectives in the future. The EU Commission has re-discovered the importance of industry for economic development. On Wednesday, it will adopt a message that is entitled:”For an industrial renaissance” and states: “Without a strong industrial base, Europe will not be able to prosper.” Industry is “at the core of European economic revival and competitiveness”, says the text.Still sort of holding my breath on this.... but if it's carried through, it will turn a major part of the world back to sanity, and will open vast horizons of opportunity for ORDINARY FUCKING PEOPLE. Canada and Australia have already abandoned the Gaian Crime. Some parts of the UK government appear to be ready to turn, but waiting for EU orders. If this isn't just a trial balloon, it should allow Britain to flip into the sane column. And it will certainly give relief to those parts of EU that have been trying to restore normal economic activity against the previous Satanic opposition from EU. EU has been the guiding light and a major funding source for the Gaian crime. If the light moves elsewhere and the funding fades, the crime will finally fade and this poor old world will finally have a chance to recover from the terminal Gaian cancer.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
