Well... Greece is starting to look like a tottering domino, eh? Maybe Monkey should move up his plans to flee to the US, because we stopped using money in 2008 and now operate like a communist collective.

(Sshh, everyone.)

The Greeks are going to become the new Romanians once France and Germany buy Greece's soul an infrastructure.

But, unlike the Romanians, will the Greeks stand for it? Romania walked into that situation after 50 years of mass displacements and low budget Evita-style rule. By the time they could sell their soul, they were surrounded by half-finished buildings with gaping holes into open sewers along the sidewalk and packs of wild dogs racing down the streets and pulling people to their deaths. We're talking a truly post-apocalyptic landscape even as late as the early 2000's.

Greece knows better.

Their present financial situation may suggest otherwise.

I mean, the people know better. Which we're seeing with the various acts of unrest.

We'll see how far that gets them with Big Brother.

Any new attitudes since June, Monkey? Pretty serious talk about Greece leaving the Eurozone... And with France holding most of the debt, things could get nasty.  Entertain us!

Bah, France is too big an economy to be allowed to fail - cue dozens of bail-outs here, there, and everywhere until everything remains as it was; economies that can't afford to be lending money to other economies which can never pay back the money loaned out from other poor economies.

After moves in the UK to make further education much less accessible and much more expensive, Ireland is following suit by cutting student fiscal grants and loans whilst raising fees.

So, why is the Ireland government doing the same as the UK by making education more and more expensive so that greater numbers of people won't get a further education? Why is Europe mimicking the US?

The governments in Europe are realizing that it's much easier to govern like the US: keep your population stupid, just smart enough to work machinery and to fill out administrative forms, but too stupid to realize how the government is fucking them up the ass EVERY day of their lives.

So, hurrah! There'll be books burning in the streets soon.

So, Monkey... You're our resident expert. We don't understand anything in the States because the Allies refused to accept the Fourteen Points.

Greece. Greece, Greece, Greece... About to jump off the Euro ship, eh? And what will the ripples in the pond do to all of us?

(Besides making Greece a suddenly affordable vacation spot for Americans.)

Greece doesn't know what the hell it's doing; unable to sort out tax payments, confused about setting up new governments - Greece is the moody, confused teenager of the EU zone. Bad acne and a case of wanker's cramp.

Even if Greece does leave the Eurozone, their debts will still stand, except they'll pay more via currency translators and exchange.

Europe will be fine.

"The world is going our way", eh comrade?

What about Spain? Ireland? From here, it looks like the whole setup is teetering. That's not the case?
