21. Some parties, such as the Golden Dawn neo-NAZI party in Greece, take advantage of crisis

 

to gain and keep power. I believe unemployment was 30% in Germany when Hitler rose to power, for example.

The thing is, I believe these "crises" are manufactured AS a power grab opportunity. Greece and Italy both had a Goldman Sachs consultant in power for a while when this all began, so you can see who is sticking their finger in the pie.

In case you didn't know, a few nights ago the Greek citizens demanded a no-confidence vote, and back in October, the Spanish citizens surrounded their parliament by the tens of thousands and demanded it step down. There is a European-wide General Strike happening on November 14!
