I told my boss and former boss about your posts and we are looking to do stories on the local Greek-American community and possibly international aid to Greece.
You know you can get one free blog/web page, don't you?
I wish Germany would do the same for Greece.
Hmm, yup, cute dog alright, but not quite what I was aiming at! OK - Here's another go at that link, as I think it really does raise an interesting notion -
The idea that this whole affair is actually bigger than debts owed and who owes them. I have started to come to veiw it as a direct slap down of democracy, in as much as the power is being wielded by the money behind it.
I was wrong when I said nothing good could come out of this, particularly after reading the links on TTP and TTIP. There are enough folks out there who understand what drives this crisis now and what the future run soley by and for the corporation holds, but really the bottom line means the question is simpler than that.
Do you want democracy or not?
That is the real issue. If the crisis in Greece is unravelled this is where you end up; this is what all people who DO want democracy should be taking as there cue to rally behind the cause. There is a way out of this, it just requires the majority acing as one. Some how I don't think there is anyone to 'spin' the idea in that direction. Sadly.
Where we are instead is a group of people waiting, in desperation, for the banks to reopen and provide them with a temporary lifeline; ironically the same banks that in the end will be the very institutions of their demise.
Others will nod or shrug or shake their heads, but will anyone do anything other than let the momentum of the moment pass and hope that they are not next in line?
It is not their fault. They only work there.
And one for Lynx -
I do not know, but wonder, if the existence of Guinea Lynx with its free availability of information is a part of this and represents a small way in which trying to extract money for information freely available here is not as economically viable. Supposedly Wikipedia has changed the encyclopedia world.
I can't say I understand the whole article but it is an interesting theory.
