Let Greece Sink
As a libertarian colleague of mine once observed: “Greece — what a shithole of a country.” Why should this goat-dependent, chronically-socialistic nation be bailed out by the rest of Europe? It gave us many fine mythological metaphors such as Atlas, but in this case Western civilization may be best served by some shrugging. Like Atlantis before it, it may be best it sink beneath waves of public debt and financial ruin, eventually being separated into two domed cities, one ruled by Aquaman.

Modern day Greeks overemphasize democracy as they abuse true capitalism. Greece’s theocratic history instilled socialism as their false alternative. Its ancient ruins serve as a metaphor for its neglected intellectual history. Greece’s future has become an afterthought along with rational thinking. Ancient Greece gave us western civilization, modern Greece seeks to take it back. Greece has yet to learn form France’s example of laissez faire capitalism. Americans now embody Greece’s ideals better than modern Greeks.
Greece has yet to learn form France’s example of laissez faire capitalism.
So has France.
Agreed. France has abandoned it’s own free market ideals as well. It was their example I was sighting.
