Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Europe simply cannot have it both ways. Either human rights really matter, or their behaviour leaves no observer any choice but to believe that money trumps people for them, no ifs or buts.

It's austerity or respecting the dignity of individuals, period.

It is a tragic shame it has come to this, but perhaps the aftermath will be better in some way, (yes my optimistic mood is showing).

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