See...again, it's fine to say that. If you aren't part of normal society.  If the rug gets ripped out from under everything, talking about how broken society is won't help the 90% of the people who are invested in "normal society" and, when they lose everything, come after you.

What is 'normal society,' Nacho?

Being over-indebted for little in return just so you can paint your fence white?

Fuck that shit. "Buying is cheaper than renting" - of course it is, because the banking systems want to get people locked down into a 25 year fake credit and interest pay-back plan.

What is the 'crisis' anyway?

Has the entire cattle population of Europe expired from the pox? Have the crop fields been withered by hellfire?

No. It's just numbers - that never existed anyway - on a computer screen.

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?

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.

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.)

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.

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.

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!
