In the post upstream (below) on Greek austerity and the resulting street riots in Athens, regular commenter L’Enfant de la Haute Mer has provided a large number of posts, articles and videos in the comment thread. I have not read all of them yet, but one that struck me as likely to resonate particularly with American readers is “A Death Sentence for Greece,” by Mike Whitney of Counterpunch.
The analogy is not exact, but the way in which the Greek parliament has (voluntarily or otherwise) sold out the Greek people to the bankers and leaders of larger EC nations is very much like what Republicans in America would do here if they gain control. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Our best wishes to Enfant for her safety, and of course for her livelihood.
