    I think the producers should rush this documentary to air or it will no longer be a heads up, for viewers, but rather an explanation of what happened! Nicole…you make so much sense. You crystallize everything that keeps me awake at night yet can’t put into words myself.

    Politicians from every Western Nation have for decades bought the ‘popular vote’ with taxpayer funded bribes such as over generous pensions, unemployment benefits, highly exploitable healthcare etc. Perhaps Syriza will come to be known as the first party to look the voters in the eye and tell them it is all unsustainable. Most western govts need to do this. Unfortunately we cant blame our politicians because any politician who tries to lead a nation away from these social freebies is voted out. We have ourselves to blame.

    The voters of Greece are very incredibly brave to unhitch from the debt train that is carrying the rest of us. Their efforts to attempt a new way will either inspire others or cower us all into resigned submission to our fate….the fiscal cliff!

    I’ve made 2 small donations: one to help cover Ilargi’s personal costs getting to Greece and another for the Athens Fund. In the back of my mind is the fact that Greece was the major super-power 2400 years ago. It’s Mediterranean neighbours Rome(Italy), Portugal and Spain also had stints as world super-powers and each of their currencies were the accepted reserve currency at the time. They are all among Europe’s struggling nations today. The UK has experienced the same rise and demise in some of our lifetimes. The current world super-power and it’s citizens should take stock and realize how fleeting this powerful privileged position can be.
