33. A "Path to Prosperity" by way of austerity is akin to calling

bombing the shit out of a country "Operation Freedom." This is neoliberalism infecting our media and political system. Austerity is good for nothing but making the rich richer and the poor poorer with lots and lots of suffering and dying along the way.

Here's a newsflash: the loan can and should be restructured to give the Greeks a chance to pay. That's it. That's all that needs to happen. The EU is plenty solvent enough to extend the loan. The troika is being purposely punitive in the cruelest possible way. They want to privatize and loot the country as much as possible just as they did here after 2008. And you agree with that. The phrase "check your privilege" applies here.
