In May, 1968, college students took the streets to revolt against their respective governments. Those students had not lived through the war and did not know the harsh conditions their parents and their older brothers had lived in. Instead, spook by a soviet-friendly political class and ingenious artists, poets and musicians, and finding themselves in a world that had just started pumping oil for leisure, removed the austerity and labor-oriented values their fathers had learned, shook Europe claiming class discrimination. They established themselves in power during the next decade. Funny thing: they never allowed anybody else into power structures. Today, this is a better world because you can voice your ideas without fear of being sacked just because of these democratic fellas that overthrew the old governments forged during war time, by war people.
Here is Daniel Cohn-Bendit, Hercules of civil rights in his time
Today he doesn't look like a lower-class protester anymore. He instead looks like the European bureaucrat and corrupt politician he is
Funny thing: He confronted bureaucrats and (for the most part less) corrupt politicians in the 60s.
Well, this very same guy is proposing to force Greek people to comply with whatever diktat out of Germany. Apparently, this guy said that "If you leave the Greeks to muddle through alone, you are risking a military putsch". So much for this democratic bunch of pirates. He just joined Barroso in this kind of interventionist shit. Sure it is better to make Greek people pay every time they breath instead of letting them out of the euro and rebuild themselves. That would hurt the banks too much eh? Very good Cohn-Bendit, you just took off the mask you wore on for more than 40 years, you hypocrite bastard. Why don't you just leave your eurocratic green seat and bake some bread for some poor Greek children?
From The Greek Reporter:
During the past hours, the Greek media has been circulating a shocking German article from www.german-foreign-policy.com that argues than in Berlin, authorities are considering coup scenarios and other ways to use armed forces to impose their will on Greece. The article is entitled “ On The Relevance of Democracy”, and it presents several nightmare scenarios on how the Germans intend to turn Greece into a protectorate since the German austerity dictate can no longer be enforced with democratic means. The article also refers to German commentators who are drawing comparisons to the situation in the later stages of Germany’s Weimar Republic: “In the Greek situation, the worst case would be a reversion to a dictatorship,” warned an influential commentator.
Did you believe you lived in Greece? That is now Generalgouvernement des Sudens. And you Poles, I tell you this: In your little Eurocup 2012, Germans are playing at home.
