The Eurogroup and the International Monetary Fund have crushed the hopes of a youthful movement that sought to transform a nation and rouse a continent. Beyond the shock that events in Greece have given supporters of the European project, there are other noteworthy features.

Though founded on a promise of peace, the EU seems incapable of drawing lessons from history, even when recent and (...)
Jan Servaes's insight:

Once Greece raised big, universal questions. Now it has revealed the true face of the Europe we no longer want.

Griekenland en EU: bestraf de verantwoordelijken! | De Bron

Griekenland en EU: bestraf de verantwoordelijken! | De Bron | Hip Hop for Social Change | Scoop.it

Vervolg de verantwoordelijke bestuurders – Griekse en Europese, openbare én private - zoals dat in elke rechtstaat hoort.

Jan Servaes's insight:

Prosecute the responsible decisionmakers - Greek and European, public and private - as is to be expected under the law.

Once prosecution and punishment effected, the Greek crisis is indeed solvable. Or, better waiting for Godot?
