No, I mean I've recently lived in a place embargoed by global economic
forces, at minimal effort to themselves, and know how easy inflicting
misery on a rebellious population actually is for the "masters of the
universe." If the capitalists decided to really turn the screws on Greece,
the resulting impoverishment would produce an actual, organic uprising
quickly enough.

Are you talking to me or Lou? I can't remember the last time I endorsed
anyone in any damn elections.
