Andrew, you have taught me so much, I cannot that you enough. At the end of the year, my car will be paid off and I can start showing you my appreciation with money!
Ah, well thank you very much, means a lot. Cheers!
Andrew, you make me proud to be a Montrealer. Keep up the good work! Here’s a little something to keep you going.
Thank you very much, greatly appreciated! Cheers
Your answer to the question, “what would be the fallout of Greece leaving the European Union?” did not speak to the point of the question. You left us with the impression that nothing much would change, partly because the Germans would continue to pay on the Greek debts. Yes, that is probably correct, however, if Greece leaving the EU doesn’t cause much of a ripple, or catastrophe, won’t this just encourage the same policies to be applied to Spain, Italy, and so forth. There will be no thought that the beating down of the Greek people has an effect on others. Hence, beating down the Spanish, or the Italians, etc, won’t have any real effect on anyone else.
Isn’t this like the idea that when they came for the unionists, it didn’t effect me so I didn’t do anything about that, and when they came after the church leaders, it didn’t effect me so I didn’t do anything about that either, and so forth? It will just be the dismemberment of the EU and the impoverishment of the workers, the young, and the old, and everyone not a banker, all over Europe.
That is, what is going on in Greece is just on a small scale what is going to happen to everyone else, and so the effect of what’s going on in Greece is just to demonstrate the end result of these policies.
I think this point is important and you should think to include it next time you are asked.
Next time, talk about the fact that Greece is just what the end result of these policies is now, and will be for everyone else in Europe who they try them on.
