The Bailout-bubble

“[...] so much money was spent on ’saving’ the car industrie that even if it involved millions of jobs, it would have been cheaper to give each worker 100.000 dollar and have him find a new job”

- after Megan McArdle

Have you ever wondered what a “stimulus-package” means? – It means that nations are pumping money into the economy that could have been better spent on ‘real’ issues, like, ow, I don’t know, educucation, welfare, research, housing or even the arts. But no, instead our gouverments need billions of dollars, euros, yens and yuans to keep the suits up and happy.

Here is the whole story, it’s worth your 50 minutes.

The Battle in Syntagma Square

“So you think that money is the root of all evil.
Have you ever asked what is the root of all money?”

– - Ayn Rand

Most of you will have noticed that Greece is not doing very well lately, that is to say the powers that be are asking the country to bend over and take it up the ass, over and over again. Now most Dutch media (and international sources) are balently taking notes from Fox News and other less informed sources to try to analyse the situation. The situation is this; as we grew accustomed to enslaving huge parts of the world through IMF loans and ridiculous claims to accompany that debt, we are now imposing the same rules and regulations on people in our own backyard. Greece is an important part of the EU and of our own western cultural heritage. The great industrial leaders of our time don’t know the difference between the monetary system and democracy anymore and are taking industrialist advice to solve the situation, but all they are doing is pushing the country back to the dark ages by treating it like a spoiled child. This can and will happen to all nations if we do not stop them now.

What is going on in Athens at the moment is resistance against an invasion; an invasion as brutal as that against Poland in 1939. The invading army wears suits instead of uniforms and holds laptops instead of guns, but make no mistake – the attack on our sovereignty is as violent and thorough. Private wealth interests are dictating policy to a sovereign nation, which is expressly and directly against its national interest. Ignore it at your peril. Say to yourselves, if you wish, that perhaps it will stop there. That perhaps the bailiffs will not go after the Portugal and Ireland next. And then Spain and the UK. But it is already beginning to happen. This is why you cannot afford to ignore these events.
I have never been more desperate to explain and more hopeful for your understanding of any single fact than this:
The protests in Greece concern all of you directly.
