REFERENDUM IN GREECE – Trick or Treat? (or Death?)
As if it was part of Halloween celebrations, the Greeks will be called to a Referendum (at least, until today’s news) to define whether they want to be rescued and sign a new deal, or not. Depending on the answer, the possible outcomes might be:
a) They continue under hard cut-down Economy measures, with no possibility of taking any action but those dictated from ECB and/or the franco-german coalition.
b) Greece is expelled from the EU, lose the euro as currency, and the country ends up left aside by the european community, to their own luck.
So, in fact, the true question underlying the referendum is whether they want to suicide themselves instantly with a shot in the head, or slowly and painfully, slashing their wrists.
What’s completely unusual and hard to justify is Government using the referendum to make people accountable of the decision, under the excuse of being democratic.
True democracy would have been to ask people through referendums, the creation and management of the whole debt from the very beginning.
The double standard of modern nations: “with the people, but without the people”.
