Here's to the Greeks. They know what to do when corporations pillage and loot their country. ... Call a general strike. Riot. Shut down the city centers. Toss the bastards out. ...The Greeks, unlike most of us, get it. -- Chris Hedges
What would the Greeks do to a company whose jerry-built oil well fouled their beautiful Aegean Sea, vomiting oily death onto its shores and fish and birds and islands, for week after week?
What would the Greeks do to a government that enabled such catastrophe, accepting company bribes and favors, allowing the company to write the rules and fill in the government's inspection reports, placing company officials in key government posts to emasculate its enforcement agency?
I don't know what the Greeks would do, but I need to believe that some population somewhere on this beleagered planet would have the balls to call a general strike, riot, shut down the city centers, and toss the bastards out – government, corporation and all their soiled bedding -- after stripping them of every asset they had.
