I just listened to a report on Real News Network about Greece, their austerity program and the European Union. Before that, I listened to a report about Great Britain's trade unions bringing 100,000 people to the streets to shut down London also because of their austerity program, wealth inequality and debt.
And these aren't the only two countries where people are marching in the streets, protesting government debt and plans to impose misery on the majority while the wealthy few bask in levels of wealth never before seen in the history of the world. Why is this happening in country after country? One word: Connectivity with the emphasis on Con.
The financiers, the technology companies and the construction companies clean up in terms of wealth of the country - leaving the majority of people jobless, penniless, hopeless and angry when they are told their country is in massive debt and they are responsible to pay for it by tax increases and reductions in their standard of living which has already been driven into the dirt.
And that's the way it is.
