Case study Greece:The Shock Doctrine in action

Picture by Larry Tomlinson

But even after winning, he faces an even more difficult task: Getting parliament to back €28-billion ($40-billion U.S.) worth of spending cuts and tax hikes as well as an unpopular €50-billion ($71-billion U.S.) privatization program by the end of the month.”
Most of the privatizations are monopolies, and they always serve the customer so well. If you are thinking Greece is the canary in the coal mine, you are correct. There is no way they could agree to have just the spend and tax changes, after all two years later and you don’t need the privatizations! The good news is that if you live in the USA, well nothing will change. If you live in Canada, well welcome to the USA. The Shock Doctrine, followed by elites since the beginning of time, it’s been up, it’s been down but I am afraid it will always be around.

We can all hope the Shock Troopers never saw The 300?
