This story from the New Statesman brings light to what is going on in Greece behind the scenes. It is a look how EU cadres, big business and security
(Blackwater redux), and banksters have stripped the country then reset the rules for the people of Greece. One interesting tidbit is that the source
confirms that the Greek government does not trust the police and has put in a layer of security control which is private from outside the country.
Will this system of control be used on an ongoing basis in other locations to assure compliance?

Greece and it's people have a lot of issues. The politicians are politicians and do what they do everywhere, placate their constituency in the form
of socioeconomic handouts. The Greek people were not fond of paying income taxes. Many either didn't pay at all or just paid what they felt like.
They had a much higher expenditure than revenue stream and the country went belly up. Sound familiar?
Want to know what happened there and in other countries facing the same situation, including the US? This explains it well and in lay terms so anyone
can understand it. "Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World" by Michael Lewis.
The Greeks are averse to work (generalization) because they, over time, were allowed to retire very early and live a carefree life and all paid for by
the government, which ran out of money. There were/are other problems as well, but that's a big part of it. Actually this is a problem in a good
part of the EU. Socialism where everyone wants to be equal and no one wants to work more than the next person because they are ............... well,
equal and if I have to work more then that's not equal.
