Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In Portugal the current option has been voted in by the people, after the troika agreement. Furthermore, current polls still show a right wing majority (though falling like a brick).

I propose that in the Portuguese case (at least) the responsibility falls also on the people. I also add the the current genocidals in power are doing MORE than requested by the troika.

Shock doctrine, double time. But voted in. With legitimacy.

...And I am willing to bet that soon enough the same people will be very willing to back a populist dictator, probably of the hard-right variety.

Note that I am not trying to excuse others of their responsibility on this. But this people is weak...
