Who Needs Democracy

By Ron Beasley

If you haven’t been paying attention there has been a coup in Greece.  Yes, the home of democracy has been taken over by the global banksters.  Unelected technocrats, some from Greece but most not, are now calling all of the shots in Greece.  They are pillaging the country in an attempt to extract as much wealth before the inevitable default of the country.  And Greece is JUST THE BEGINNING.

STEVE LENDMAN:

Predatory bankers make serial killers look good by comparison. Their business model creates crises to facilitate grand theft, financial terrorism, and debt entrapment.

They steal all material wealth and then some. They systematically rob investors and strip mine economies for self-enrichment.

They demand they get paid first. They hold nations hostage to assure it. They turn crises into catastrophes.

They leave mass impoverishment, high unemployment, neo-serfdom, and human wreckage in their wake.

Their Federal Reserve/ECB/IMF/World Bank/political class lackeys do their bidding.

They’re more dangerous than standing armies. They wage war by other means. They cause “demographic shrinkage, shortened life spans, emigration and capital flight,” explains Michael Hudson.

They’re a malignancy ravaging societies and humanity. Greece is the epicenter of what’s metastasizing globally. The latest bailout deal highlights out-of-control pillage.

The people of Greece are screwed.  While they may not be entirely blameless most of the blame has to go to a government that made little or no attempt to collect taxes from the top 20% while borrowing money that the banks should not have lent them.

The austerity being forced on the citizens of Greece will not only guarantee that will never be able to repay the loans but also send the country into a deep depression.  The banksters know this which is why they are pillaging while they can.  This is as aggressive as any military invasion.  The Greek people are rioting and burning - who can blame them.  They can see what’s going on even if the rest of the world can’t.

You think this doesn’t impact you.  Think again!  It should remind you of the attacks on Social Security and Medicare here in the US while the hegemonic military and taxes on the wealthiest remain untouched.
