The video is of Greek factions fighting it out in the streets of Athens last week.

The news of the Prime Minister's decision to put the latest EuroZone extortion plan to a vote of the Greek People has sent shock waves through world markets.


Well, of course not. You do not put matters like this to a vote of the people. It's just not done.

Except they did it in Iceland, twice, and the People said a resounding "NO!" to the terms the Banksters set, Iceland defaulted on the debt, and the investors in Britain and the Netherlands are still fuming about it. Iceland seems to be fine. There were no dire repercussions, and for what it's worth, Iceland can still borrow whatever it needs to to stay financially afloat.


Someone has to break the thrall of the Banksters over governments around the world, and if that job falls to the Greeks, then Hurrah!

Of course they may not get to the point of a referendum before... Papandreou's government falls, there's an invasion (led by the British, of course, they know how to do these things), and the Parthenon is sold for scrap lime.

In a sense, it doesn't matter. If the spell is broken, liberation is nigh.

ΖΗΤΩ ΟΙ Έλληνες! (Or something. I used Google Translate, and something tells me that is not how you say "Long live the Greeks!" in Greek.)


  1. Not coincidentally, Michael Hudson did an interview on Iceland recently.

    "What they did was get together outside of Parliament with about 20 huge oil drums, and at the point where the prime minister began to speak in Parliament, they all begin banging the huge oil drums and any other noise makers they had in order to make it impossible to hear even the speech, so that any recording of the speech would have this huge din of noise going on. And they did that for the same reason that the people in Occupy Wall Street are gathering. They’re there to say, look, whatever deal this right-wing reactionary prime minister lady makes with Europe, we’re not going to obey it. As soon as we can throw these thieves out of power, we’re going to come in and we’re going to have another government, and we’re not going to pay, because if a government gives away to–the country to foreign bankers and foreign creditors and we don’t have a say in it, that’s not democracy. "

  2. Not to be a crank, but Hudson was all over the map in that interview, and I can't make head nor tails of what he was trying to say about Iceland or anything else.

    He was contradicting himself constantly.

    That may ultimately be because the situation is so self-contradictory, not just in Iceland, but throughout the economic world. The underlying issue is how to break the thrall the Banksters have over governments.

    No one has quite figured out how to do it. Practically very government, especially the nominally Socialist ones in Europe, is the active tool of the financial and banking sector. None appear to be independent in the least. All are perfectly willing to suppress and further exploit their People to serve the interests of the Banksters.

    In perpetuity, if that's what has to be done.

    The Revolt of the Masses means nothing to them.

    Which is interesting in and of itself. How can the Overclass be so blind, deaf, and dumb?

    They said the same about the Bourbons and the Romanovs. How could they be so bone stupid as to be completely oblivious to the Outcry of the People?

    The spell that governments are under must be broken.

    If referenda don't do the trick -- and I think Hudson was trying to argue they didn't in Iceland, but I can't tell from the video or the text -- then something else is necessary, eh?
