GREECE LEAVING THE EURO

Greece leaving the euro and precipitating a virtually uncontrollable sequence of banking, financial and economic events across Europe (and quite possibly further afield) would, in my view, be a good thing … in the medium- to long-term.  The short-term impact would be pretty horrendous I imagine.

The alternative to such a ‘cathartic moment’ is virtually endless penury and serfdom for millions of citizens unable to break free, by democratic means, from the yoke of sovereign indebtedness and insolvency.

At the moment our lives are being controlled by largely unelected elites (banking and bureaucratic) with the collusion of our (impotent) elected politicians.  The situation is unacceptable and only a shocking ‘cathartic moment’ – driven by harsh economic realities at the levels of individuals, families and communities – can put an end to this unholy mess.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
