social pressures of mass immigration in sweden

The foundering of the social contract.

"Many Swedes see mass immigration as a forced marriage: Sweden is forced to marry a man she did not choose, yet she is expected to love and honor him even though he beats her and treats her badly. And on top of that, her parents (the government) tell her to be warm and show solidarity with him."

80% of finns want a citizen's wage

"The Finnish government is considering a pilot project that would see the state pay people a basic income regardless of whether they work.

"The details of how much the basic income might be and who would be eligible for it are yet to be announced, but already there is widespread interest in how it might work.

"Prime Minister Juha Sipila has praised the idea. "For me, a basic income means simplifying the social security system," he said.

"The scheme is of particular interest to people without jobs. In Finland, they now number 280,000 - 10% of the workforce

"With unemployment an increasing concern, four out of five Finns now are in favour of a basic income."

did vroufakis resign because he could not go along with 'greasy politician, tsipras'?

"Yet this is matched by a widespread feeling in Italy and France that Germany abused its hegemonic power in the eurozone to push a narrow, mean-spirited agenda, a regret shared by much of the German Left and the country’s pro-European wing."

“The damage done to relations between France and Germany may prove irredeemable, while the German suggestion that Greece be granted a short term euro area surely shatters the principle that membership of the euro area is irrevocable."

Varoufakis argues that no union can operate without transfers from surplus areas to deficit areas. I am close to convinced that is indeed the case.

He also asserts that there is no such mechanism in the euro area and that also appears to be true - a major part of the current chaos with Greece/Germany. Does Germany ever learn? Such transfers are even operating in Germany.

Such mechanisms are in place in the UK regarding transfers to Scotchland, Wales, Northern Ireland etc, as well as various transfers via the dole and pensions systems, and infrastructure programs of various forms. (The last are generally supporting government offices or multinational manufacturing in weaker areas.)

Varoufakis is a very unusual fellow. He calls himself a Marxist, yet he is remarkably realistic in among his dogma.

now consider, who rules greece?

"The Germans have had enough. They are the only European country with sufficient Greek rescue money and the Germans have decided to get tough with countries like Greece: either you accept pain or you get out of the euro.

"The Germans will now not throw good money after bad unless the Greeks come into line. And because the Greeks allowed their country to decline further by not accepting the initial rescue terms offered, the pain they must now accept has been increased. There is no mercy now.

"Accordingly we have a degree of clarity to the Greek crisis. Europe is giving the Greece a choice of a depression caused by the further severe austerity measures required to stay in the euro or an even deeper depression by switching to its own currency.

"And if they want help, they first must pass the tough measures and hope they will be looked after. The Greeks no longer have any negotiating power.

"Either way there is going to be a mass exodus of Greeks from Greece. Europe is teaching its other weaker members of the euro that if they follow the Greek path to the left, they too will face depressions and mass population exoduses."

Note: The author repeats the habitual falsehood concerning Versailles.

eussr greek farce continues - is the eussr in meltdown?

It is war in Brussels.

The Greek government cannot be trusted. Then no country can be trusted in the Euro fairyland. Governments are bad enough without the mad euro.

Meanwhile, the populations are being sacrificed to the egos of politicians.

It isn't the peasants who ruin the polity, it is politicians, driven by ego or, even worse, driven by the socialist cult.

The peasants put their money in the banks, in the trusting manner of the less educated and the less powerful. Then when the lunatic schemes of politicians come undone, they seek to bail themselves out by stealing the chickens of the peasants.

The EUSSR has no legitimate claims on the Greek peasants.
It is the duty of the ECB to provide the liquidity/notes for the people who lent them money.
That is the social contract of modern states.

The Troika - the ECB, IMF and the EU - are in breach of contract to the Greek people, but they are playing at collective punishment of those people to try to save themselves and the Greek politicians.

By all means, we could put the politicians who generated this mess in jail, but attacking the populations as scapegoats is an outrage.

The point of democracy is to hold politicians to account. The EUSSR is well on the way to destroying democracy.

It is entirely the fault of politicians who offer bribes to peasants for votes. Those politicians should be driven out of politics.

If a company offers wages higher than its production and profits will support, then the company and the directors go bankrupt, and the workers can move on.

The peasants cannot (easily) move away from corrupt politicians.

Corrupt company directors are in fear of the laws. Corrupt politicians even make corrupt laws and continually evade responsibility.

The leadership of the UK Labour Party would all be on trial in my view, as should many Greek politicians and EUSSR bureaucrats.

Only with adequate political and economic education can the peasantry be brought into meaningful citizenship. It well past time that teachers were better educated and subject to a similar stricture of the Hippocratic oath and the British Medical Council. Even though the BMC is subject to the usual interest capture, a similar supervisory structure could be a step forward.
