The people of Greece have brought to reality the worst nightmare of those who run the EU – they’ve opted for democracy.
After years of threats and bullying the Greeks have lost their fear. They have gone back to their ancient roots when democracy was first invented to protect the people from the rich and powerful.
They are the first nation to take on the rogue capitalists who have been poisoning the European ideal of unity, democracy and Enlightenment since Reaganomics and Thatcherism allowed them off the leash in the 1980s.
Prime minister Alexis Tsipras and his government have called the bluff of EU leaders who want to suck the last drop of blood from the Greek people.
I believe the European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, Angela Merkel and their supporters are shaking in their boots at the prospect of a No vote on Sunday. They know that if Greece is forced out of the Euro or even the EU it will be disastrous for the whole community.
There is no way the credibility of the Euro will survive a Greek exit. If Greece is abandoned in the interests of rogue capitalists the EU will begin to crumble.
And who’s waiting in the wings, rubbing his hands in glee? Putin’s resurgent and increasingly militaristic Russia.
A disunited and bickering Europe will be easy prey for a man like Putin. He’s probably already making plans to pick off country after country as he pursues his ruthlessly ambitious plans for a new Russian empire.
Only a united Europe can protect itself and its people but for unity the rogue capitalists will first have to be removed from power.
