Hope The Raft of the Medusa 2.0

We cannot rely on finding solutions to our problems at some distant shore. We cling to this lone vessel, and the patches we apply will only keep us afloat for so long”: More than a century ago, the hungry and destitute masses of Europe could sail to distant shores for prosperity and a better life. Today the tables are turned. You can argue, that the old world is partly to blame for some of todays inequality, so we deserve what we get, but the features that make Europe attractive are frail and easily disrupted. The image of the continent as a raft is justified – the welfare state only floats as long as the recipients are a minority.
