The real question is how would a revolution change the economic circumstances for Greece.

Greece is broke.

Even if you replaced all the politicians in Greece (hopefully non violently) that would not solve their problem.

The reality is very simple. If you have an income of $2500 per month yet spend $3500 per month, at some point you will not be able to get any more credit, or borrow any more money. Then, perhaps very suddenly you have to not only reduce your expenditures but also come up with a plan to pay back the debt that you have incurred.

That is what is happening in Greece. Only, the citizens don't like the austerity measures that the politicians have come up with.

This also may be the future of the US. We have a national debt of over 16 trillion dollars with no plan on how to pay it back. Our country may also be facing this problem in the near future.




You've all been witness to an organized diversion - accumulating hard assets with little or no effort involved. Label it banking, monarchy, oligarchy, divide and conquer... It doesn't matter at this point. The trickery doesn't work, nor will holding onto its spoils.

Game Over Man.

I can tell that you're not a politician, that's far too sensible.

Here in the UK our not so illustrious former incumbents in government had a plan - they were going to borrow their way out of debt.

I kid you not that is the sh*t they tried to feed to us.

No wonder we're knackered.

I sincerely hope the people of Greece really unite & give their # Gov a sound kick up the arse.

That's the kind of spirit and action we need here in Australia.

Difference between Greeks & Aussies is that the Greeks have seroius balls. Pity we don't.

Good on em.

Why should citizens be happy they are being made to follow austerity measures that were not there fault but corrupt politicians.

Unlike the USA , Greece does not have the luxury of printing money at will ....

The problem is that people in australia are so far away from the rest of the world they have no idea of what is really happening. They are fed propaganda on a daly basis from all media outlets and it seems that authority is the way of life...

Most Aussies would not have the slightest idea of what real freedom is.
