Is Germany actually willing to risk a break-up of the European Union? Is it able to survive this kind of massive destruction of the political frame in Europe?
that's the $64,000 question... or is that billions?
will the whole european union founder on the shoals of a few german economists and their ideology, (paranoid hangover from another age)?
whether it's greed, fear, stupidity or a combo of the above is daily discussed among the conoscenti, but the average joe does not even begin to understand the murky, opaque reasons why all the bennies of a new forged union are going to have to be sacrificed, (along with the savage austerity cuts), just because of some financial machinations w-a-y behind the curtains, whether these shadowy characters come from lichtenstein, luxembourg, or germany for that matter.
all they know is that they ~we~ have become accustomed a borderless, blended, co-operative europe, and this wonderful improvement is being endangered by a few media-obscure individuals, who will not be able to hide under the glare of public consciousness trained on these saboteurs.
if europe's future lies in the hands of gamblers trying to cover their losses through obfuscation and doublespeak, the exposure of this social criminality is a risk even they can't hedge.
we have come too far to be undone by a crew of jowly backroom pirates, it won't stand.
the only question is when enough of the discomfited public wake up and stop believing the BS, and these powerfreaks will go down. the world's too small to hide in, where can they disappear to?
the dull roar of rage is mounting every day, as more and more feel the sting of the bankers' lash. when the masses have as little to lose as the arabs, well, you know the rest...
'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
