1. One wonders if Greece is being used as a neoliberal laboratory
with the wealth of the wealthy protected at the cost of everything held by the other 99%, individually and as part of the commons.
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.
Capitalism is the extraordinary belief that the nastiest of men for the nastiest of motives will somehow work for the benefit of all. - John Maynard Keynes
