The Greek ‘rescue’ according to Varoufakis

Yanis Varoufakis did not leave his position as Greek finance minister silently, as Alexis Tsipras and the Troika would have wanted him to do it.

Tsipras chooses Debt Slavery

The Troika has triumphed over the Greek people. Alexis Tsipras defied the European gods, but did not have enough guts to take the battle for freedom to the endline.

Alexis Tsipras sells out to the Troika

The NO vote by the people in Greece turned into a green light for Tsipras to further destroy the nation. Predatory monied interests make serial killers look good by comparison.

They create mass impoverishment, high unemployment, neo-serfdom and human wreckage. They’re more ...Read full article...

Greece’s Sunday’s Vote Will Determine Liberty Or Serfdom

Troika-waged financial war is systematically destroying Greece. According to history books, democracy originated in Greece. Of course, historians could be mistaken, but this is the prevailing view among Western populations with enough awareness to be interested to know.

SYRIZA Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras promised ...Read full article...

Europe’s Complicity in Evil

There is a widespread supposition that Obama, being black and a member of an oppressed race, will imbue US foreign policy with a higher morality than the world experienced from Bush and Clinton. This is a delusion. Obama represents the same ideology of American “exceptionalism” as other re- cent presidents. This ideology designates the United States as The Virtuous Nation and supplies the basis for the belief that America ...Read full article...

Plans for Destroying Greece Stall
