I don't understand how in Brussels watching the lives of the people in Greece being halted, it is something somehow admissible. submitted by mhinnes to Europe

tortulho 1 points 6 points (+7|-1) ago


I fail to see how Greece's current problems are the fault of "Brussels" if:

a) Syriza's government has been promising the moon since the elections, and the only thing that it delivered was throwing Greece deep into the gutter and even more austerity,

b) Greece's current problems are owed exclusively to Greece,

c) Brussels is a reference to the EU, not the eurozone,

d) the eurozone is actually 19 democratic nations, of which Greece is only one of the 19, and their representatives answer only to them

e) The eurozone hasn't caused any problem at all. Its role is only of a lender of last resort, one which Syriza's government decided 6 months ago somehow to antagonize and blatantly insult from the very start and hoping that somehow that would earn them free money.

And most importantly,

It appears that Greece's ruling regime has this knack to flee any accountability for the consequences of their own actions.

It's a shame the Allies didn't go through with the Morgenthau plan.

Yeah, it worked very well after WW1, and europe would be such an awesome place after being ran over by the Soviet Union.

Oh, but no. Syriza's government screwed over Greece due to their gross incompetence manifested in their patronizing and offensive way they tried to pressure fellow eurozone members to pay off their election promises.

That must surely mean that committing a gross mistake in the past must be a good idea.

será que podemos ter menos politica por aqui?

Eu vim do reddit. Contribuia atalhos lá e contribuo atalhos aqui.

Pelo registo do /v/portugal, nos últimos 12 dias este recebeu apenas 8 contribuições. Dessas 8, 5 foram minhas e submetidas nos últimos 2 dias, altura onde abandonei o reddit para vir para o voat.

Se preferes outros atalhos, submete tu.

Eu continuarei a submeter os que eu achar interessantes.

What happened to the conspiracy theory where Germany was to blame for every problem in the world?

Rising Progressive Leader in Britain Making Waves with His Plan To Spread the Wealth submitted by Empire_of_the_mind to Europe

or rather he views the national wealth as something that should be shared equally.

There is no such thing as "national wealth".

There's onlyl your personal wealth and someone else's wealth.

I know rich people

The crass mistake that you're making is assuming that this is only about "the rich".

It isn't.

It's about your money, and someone else's money.

And don't assume for a second that the people doing the "redistribution" will take the money away from "the rich". They'll take your money away from you, and you have absolutely no say on how it's spent or to whom it is handed to.

People like you are so keen on this "rah rah socialism" thing because you see it as a convenient cash cow that gets you rich without having to do any work. You somehow assume that you'll be given money taken form someone else.

Instead, you'll be the one doing the paying, and no matter how hard you work or how much you spend, the bullshit you're advocating only means that your life's work will always be taken away from you.

Before you post comments, at least you should make some effort to try to understand what the article says and what the people you've replied to are actually saying.

If you feel the need to put words into anyone's mouth to have something to say, maybe that's a good sign that you shouldn't be yapping at all.
