It seems to me that the majority of Europeans do not even believe that their currency could possibly collapse and they use any bit of good information to justify any good news.

Is this widely true or only among some people.

Probably the same as it is here in America. Most don't understand, most who do don't care for one reason or another, and the rest post on ATS.

I am from Europe and I pretty darn well see a very good possibility that 'our' currency can die. For most Eurozone countries (countries that have the €) a lot of inhabitants didn't ask for the Euro. A lot of them wouldn't shed a tear if it went.

I think the 'any good info to justify' you are talking about are nothing more than institutions with interests in Eurozone debt who are trying to goodspeak for their own gain.

People in Europe are fed up with the Eurotocracy...

I would actually say that from my own perception at least, those in the Euro are well aware of what's happening, even though their media is not reporting the facts.

Those in the UK and the USA seem to be primarily living in lala land, swallowing the BS of their media.

It looks to me that most media outlets are being manipulated to highlight and simplify positive news and over-complicate and "jargonize" bad news.

I'm actually of a similar mindset. I have rent to pay, but that's pretty much it. I operate some online business, and it gathers enough income for me to comfortably live and save at the moment. I'm able to stock up on the things I need when I have to.

I think we need an economic collapse. We need an event to teach kids the value of money and work. We need an event to remind people what is actually important in life. We need something to get rid of the mega-rich, and I hope this does it!

Also, I really, really, really hope (and I know a lot of people will not like me saying this) that the property market in the UK COMPLETELY collapses, to the point where a single young man can actually AFFORD his own home without getting into a marriage of convenience or knocking some girl up!

Millions of people here have been artificially inflating the housing market for decades, pricing out the next generation for nothing but their own greed. I just want a place to live in for the rest of my life, and I don't care if I don't make a profit from it, I just don't want to have to spend 90% of my income for the next 30 years (if I could even get a mortgage) on just having a roof over my head!
