To the Greek Socialist,
"Why even have a government, if there's no redistribution of wealth?"
But Margaret Thatcher's prophetic words were never more true than today;
"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."
The European union seems content to let Greece suffer a while longer in their socialist utopia. The nation is flooded out by debt and has been asking for global bailouts for nearly 7 years.
What seems like a reasonable terms of western charity to us, is flatly rejected by the Greek people - overwhelmingly.
The Greeks wanted to keep up with the French and the Italians. But they became the Serbians, instead. Here's a simplified list of terms the EU has presented to Greece, in exchange for cosigning the loans to float their national government:
LABOUR MARKET REFORM
PUBLIC SECTOR CUTS
The government aims to raise 50bn euros from privatisations by 2015, including:
Wouldn't true default and bankruptcy be better in the long run? It would be a living hell for a few years, but followed by real opportunity and unshackled growth. The Greek bailout may not be the kindest gift to Greece. It may really be a gift to the international financiers who would be stuck with uncollectable loans. And that takes us back to the ongoing globalist conspiracy theories of the Rockefellers, Bilderbergers, and the like.
A Warning To The USA
Whatever proposal comes out of a COS, it would need 75% of the 50 states voting to adopt it. and that's no small feat. The populist West Coast, Great Lakes, and New England states will not like the idea of living within our means.
So we keep sliding down the slope toward Greek tragedy....
