1. One wonders if Greece is being used as a neoliberal laboratory

Greece is overripe for revolution, a new government writing tax law with teeth. I can think of no more efficient way to throw a country into the kind of desperation leading to revolution than enforcing neoliberal policies of austerity for the people and the absolute protection of the parasites.

- You can be certain that the Greek government is providing for the payment to the police in this ''austerity'' (starvation/suicide) budget. The day that's no longer true, is the day the revolution will start in earnest......
