Insolvency of Political Class

;”>Après moi, le déluge 

What we face in the West is the bankruptcy of our politics. There’s many reasons for it, it’s a process that has been engaged for decades, the culmination of mega-corporate and financial control over society, where the supposed ethos of supply, demand, and interest supplants all others. A system supposedly providing the greatest benefits for all, increasingly continues to fail for more and more, while our political class simply become louder shills, “Do you believe us, or your lying eyes?”

The latest example is Ms. Merkel, the ex-commie, who just like an ex-drunk is now the greatest proselytizer for all things capital. Bowing to the whimpering pleas of the latest bad joke of the French, Mr. Sarkozy, Ms Merkel has agreed to kick the can a little further down the road:

The leaders of Germany and France have agreed that private creditors should participate in a new rescue programme for Greece by voluntarily agreeing to roll over their holdings of Greek government bonds.

Why not just get rid of the middleman, and the Germans directly pay the French banks?

So it goes, for awhile longer anyway.Rich Text AreaToolbarBold (Ctrl + B)Italic (Ctrl + I)Strikethrough (Alt + Shift + D)Unordered list (Alt + Shift + U)Ordered list (Alt + Shift + O)Blockquote (Alt + Shift + Q)Align Left (Alt + Shift + L)Align Center (Alt + Shift + C)Align Right (Alt + Shift + R)Insert/edit link (Alt + Shift + A)Unlink (Alt + Shift + S)Insert More Tag (Alt + Shift + T)Toggle spellchecker (Alt + Shift + N)▼
