Final Word from Tuesday, July 14, 2015

Like the War on Drugs, the War on Greece has its roots in the effort of the drug dealers to induce addiction. With Greece, the international bankers did it by giving low-rate starter loans that weren't so unlike the freebies that drug dealers use to get kids hooked. The bankers, with Goldman Sachs and the European Central Bank at the fore, then helped the new addict concoct lies to keep the fix coming and promised always to be there for it, through thick and thin. But like all criminals with briefcases, the bankers changed the rules at mid-game and now want to seize the addict's house, car, company and anything else that hasn't been converted to drug (interest) money. The dealers have their dependent exactly where they wanted it: Hated by decent society, fearful to say no to anything, utterly unable to change its habit-formed ways. If the analogy held, the next step would be to put all the Greeks in prison and throw away the key. [Czech Republic addiction crisis Union euro]
