I'm thinking back on twenty years of rhetoric on the right in which the phrase "the public square" figured largely. So, it turns out that when actual public squares become politicized, it's the left that does it. The latest, Syntagma Square in Athens, in an essential post from Yves.
Looks like a three-handed game, with the EU flavor of international bankster seeking to reduce the Greeks to debt peonage, the local oligarchies privatizing public assets for a one-time payment that won't stave off anything, but will enrich them, and the people revolted by the whole process.
NOTE One thing we can be sure of is that no matter what happens, those same banksters and our own local oligarchies, aided by our famously free press, will try to impose the same regime on us, using the news from Greece as the latest pretext (although of course it could be something else).
