Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
European Tribune - Flash brief from the #greekrevolution
deficit colonization

great meme...

needs to be endlessly repeated. they are too clever to fly any flags any more, they-who-must-be-obeyed. their puppets like SK and the new ice queen are just the front line stooges, the real movers and shakers are in the shadows, hiding behind the near-total lack of democratic transparency in the upper financial stratosphere.

lizards with political leverage, hijacking the forces of law and turning them into blackshirts who provoke mayhem to cover their agenda.

all the while their business houses of cards financially leveraged, under water of their own making, they try to drown the people from the safety of their own liveried lifeboats.

perhaps the emergency will morph to an emergence. it's the best we can hope for at this point.

egypt is making it clear it's a lot easier to start a revolution than sustain it to the point it really replaces what went before, plus ca change... kicking dictators out is only the first step, creating a new system from scratch, now that's hard, and made harder by the armed forces and secret police who continue their depredations as if little or nothing had changed, other than a statue or two gets downed, and a dictator shuffles or is carried off stage.

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
