Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Have you read what's happening now, up there in the diary? Do you really think that is just? Are the people who are being forced to take a huge drop in living standards to blame for corruption or unpaid taxes by the more wealthy?

I'll give you one alternative, it is that those people rise up and cut the more wealthy into bite-sized chunks.

Another would be a form of default that does not involve hardship for the same ordinary people through inflation on imported necessary commodities. Perhaps not easy to bring about, but given the alternative to which you say there is no alternative...

Oh, but that would involve our magicians of the financial world taking a hit that would make them look like the sorry assholes they really are. Can't have that kind of alternative, can we?
