Antonis Samaras says Greece's democracy is in danger, comparing situation to Germany's pre-war Weimar Republic


Greece is teetering on the edge of collapse with its society at risk of disintegrating unless the country's near-empty public coffers are shored up with urgent financial aid, the country's prime minister has warned.

Almost three years after the eruption of Europe's debt drama in Athens, the economic crisis engulfing the nation has become so severe that democracy itself is now imperiled, Antonis Samaras said.

"Greek democracy stands before what is perhaps its greatest challenge," Samaras told the German business daily Handelsblatt in an interview published hours before the announcement in Berlin that Angela Merkel will fly to Athens next week for the first time since the outbreak of the crisis.

I have been talking to people who live in Greece, and people who know people in Greece and the situation is dire....hospitals are running out of supplies, people living on the streets......but what can be done? Greece financially is bankrupt, the loans that are being offered to Greece will never be re-payed.

But one should look towards Angela Merkel's visit in upcoming weeks, from what I am hearing, she is becoming the symbol of the cause of their misery. (well, that can be placed on big banks and government for selling them the lie you can have it all free of cost) All I can say is their security better be damned good.

With the continued riots in Spain, the continuing global economic crisis (I don't buy into the Romney /. Obama rhetoric that things are getting better, they know how to get us out of this mess) and the current cyberterrorist threat (false flag?) against several banks I wonder how long we have before this really blows up in our faces.


and sorry for being all over the place, just some thoughts going through my head)

Like all majority-socialist nations they blame their misery on others. Like all socialists they keep calling for more financial aid. Like all socialists they make no investment of capital.Like all socialists they go to the streets and scream their rage at "TPTB" and fail to do the hard work necessary to thrive. They will go down like every other socialist state before them. No surprises here.

Gee funny that most of the people leaving the country are your average working folk who cannot get a job. They cannot debase their currency like the US because they are trapped by the Euro dictatorship. Mate seriously stick your Mitt Romney version of the world high up where the sun don't shine. The world can do without the BS American right stuck up ideologies.

Well, it looks like they'll be trying their best.


7,000 police to protect Angela Merkel during Athens visit

Greek police are preparing a huge security operation involving 7,000 officers, water cannon and a helicopter to protect German chancellor Angela Merkel during her visit to Athens tomorrow.

No money for hospitals but they can lay that lot on

7000 police officers? What are they going to do with 7000 police officers? Line the whole route?

This shows the mentality of our leaders today. Panic panic panic to sway public opinion. Societies rise and fall and have done throughout history and that will never change. But societies are rebuilt and made anew and that will never change either.

I say let the dice fall where they may and let society pick up the peices. I know people will suffer but without suffering we will have no progression. The two go hand in hand unfortunately.

The first thing to go if society collapses will be the bankers and thier corruption. This will leave the way clear for a rebuild and a rethink.

like all nations under the banking cartel, Greece has been beaten down by interest on money printed from nothing by criminals who care nothing of anyone but themselves. interest is the great deceiver and wouldn't we all love to have our own printing press so we can loan out money backed by nothing to fools at interest rates.

The reason the leaders act the way they do is because they know that when society falls they will be the first to go. They don't want to give up that power. They are fully aware that societies rebuild, but they also know they tend to be rebuilt without the leaders who caused the problem in the first place. Unfortunately this means that they'll prolong the inevitable as long as possible.

Don't worry bro', he'll be crawling around in the gutters and garbage just like the rest of us soon enough.
Spain looks like it's a week or 3 away from social disintegration, the rest of the world can't be that far behind.

I myself am very optimistic about the future of Greece. A new power is on the horizon.
