Euro-Fatigue Storm Rising

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The ongoing drama and chaos across Europe has seen the rise and spread of a number of 'extremist' anti-EMU and anti-bailout parties. As JPMorgan notes, the political consequences of reform fatigue are high. Many countries have seen the emergence of nationalist parties but only France, Italy, and Greece have parties advocating EMU withdrawal (for now). This is exactly what we discussed as likely to occur and was quantified here (and here) as inevitably leading to chaos, judged empirically, when austerity has been imposed.

The True Finns story has run its course.

Finland simply isn't fertile ground for uber-national rhetoric, if only because they really don't have to worry about too many immigrants.  After all, who in the world can speak the language?  Every word looks like an eye chart....

Well, actually I am just about to go on a well deserved 30 day holiday :) I don't know how you do it in the US but here they withhold 12% of your salary over the year that you then use for your holiday.

So basically it comes out of your salary. You can also chose to not take any holiday and get it in cash.

But this is norther europe, I do not know how they do it down in southern Europe.

 

But this is something I defend, After working like a fucking slave for 12 months I deserve at least a month off as we have little or no Sun and warmth here during the looooong winter.

Anyways, many other countries like for example Sweden have parties in the government that even wants to exit the EU all together !

The EU is a failed zionist-satanist project that should be scaled back to a trading block, leave the idiot politics out of it, and things would look pretty good. Thanks to this Schengen free travel policy, all of productive Europe is overrun by gypsys raping kids and begging on the streets.

As a northern European it is not that pleasant to see these dirty bastards lay around everywhere with their yellow teeth and rugged , ugly faces.

 

I now can imagine how life was back in the days leading up to ww2, all that is missing is that Germany let's ECB print money and drop it from zeppelins over europe. (also known as hyperinflation).

In southern Europe, they withhold 12% of the salary from someone from northern Europe.  So basically it comes out of your salary as well.  ;-)

If you are talking to me, the answer is no. i work in the private sector.

What is so comfy about reserving 12% of your net income per year for later use? I am assuming you can do the same in the US, just add a couple of $ every month on a separate savings account and then pay bills and travel with those when you take time off?

 

I know my US colleauges have 25 days off per year, just as we do.

This sounds not that much different from what the Nazis were preaching in the 1930s.  They also included the homosexuals and communists in their enemies list. We know how that turned out.

Unfortunately, the ones that paid the ultimate price were more likely than not to just be ordinary working people that had the misfortune to be identified with the pariah groups.  Nothing binds the electorate together as much as having a common enemy, real or imagined.

The Left Party (Vänsterpartiet) abandoned their demand for exit from the EU last year, and want to focus on changing the Union from within instead. (Good luck with that!) And those politicians of the Center Party that want out of the EU are a small and marginalised group. (Which is a pity for the party, since there is a much larger section of their voters and the general public that feels that way, but has no one except the tabooish Sweden Democrats to vote for on that issue.)

There is growing EU skepticism among the people, at least here in northern Europe. It's just the politicians that are still fully in favour of an "ever closer union" - though many who were previously very outspoken on the subject are now keeping their heads down so as to not alienate their voters, whose opinions they have no intention of representing.

That's true enough, but the Sweden Democrats are not in government. Nor are they ever likely to be, unless they somehow reach a majority on their own (which would be quite a leap from today's five percent), since all the other parties, regardless if left or right, despise them and wouldn't touch them with a ten-foot pole. (The "allowed" breadth of discourse in Swedish politics is very narrow, and everyone venturing outside it is labeled an extremist.)

Beppe Grillo smashing a PC at the end of his rallies because he demonized the internet? I know him very well and i think you are a little bit bad informed. He was and still is a great satirist. He was put out of italian television when i was a kid just because he sayed Bettino Craxi (Socialist party, godfather of Silvio "banana" Berlusconi) was i thief. Than Silvio took Bettino's place when he and his "socialist" party were destroyed by "Mani Pulite", the huge process that took place in 1992-1993 and ended the so called first republic once the Berlin wall crumbled down.

5 stars is to say that everyone in their movement has to be "clean", no trials, no tricks, no bullshit. Every traditional party is shitting in his pants right now in front of a satirist. Wonderful. I voted for his man in my region 2 years ago and I've never been so happy to have voted a guy in my life! He's one of us, no 40 year career, lifelong politician. Wow!

More and more it sounds like ZH will support nothing other than more and more banksterism and the chaos it has already brought to the world.  And is about to bring much, much more.

Why does that surprise anyone? What did you think would happen if you do again now - draining everything you can out of a country - the way you did after WWI

 

There comes a point when you have to realize ZH readers aren't the only people on Earth who can figure out that what's happening is the banksters, and the people who the wage-slave banksters support - sometimes referred to as the *.1%* who are the Ultra Rich - are raping the population to maintain their lifestyle.

 

The best phrasing I saw was on ZH when Tyler (I believe, but I could be wrong as to the source - it's the phrasing that stuck in my mind), when I saw the phrasing, along the lines that "The population is being told that it is at fault for overliving, when the truth is that it is the Ultra Rich elites who decided to foolishly spend the money (Greece needs 12 submarines - living under the US defense umbrella? Sure . . .), run up the debts, and now can't pay it back. So they guilt trip the population into believing it is their fault - when really it is the Ultra Rich who brought all this on. Now that it's here, they are doing what they always do - they are spending someone else's money to pay for their extravagance."

 

Eventually the message sinks in. This is not a ZH Exclusive. Others have figured this out - and the people who are now seeing for themselves what has been done to them - and what is being done to them - are truly angry about seeing their life go to Hell in a hand-basket while the Ultra Rich continue to live their over-pampered lifestyle.

 

And the celebs - believe it or not - aren't helping the Ultra Rich. When you see a useless piece of trash like LiLo or Paris out there - you have to ask - exactly what did they ever do to earn their lifestyle? (Yeah - they are actresses - again, sure . . .). The celebs really bring it into the public mind, and they start asking these questions.

 

Or better yet - what do the Kennedys do? The Sulzbergers? The Grahams? The Saudi princes? I can name one leech after another who is living rich for no reason other than they can fog a mirror and collect a trust check.

 

"So exactly why am I sacrificing my lifestyle so they can live one in which they do nothing to earn it?" the population finally asks.

 

You may - in your Ayn Rand World truly hate that I bring this up. Well, greed is not good. Greed leads to moral decay. It creates the disparity we see evolving where the Top 1% collects 90% of the income - but pays ONLY 70% of the taxes. They should pay relative to their earnings - they make 90%, they should pay 90%. I have no guilt whatsoever of stripping them down to paying relative to their earnings, relative to those of the population at-large.

 

And greed leads to the closing of upward mobility through education and networking as the cost of that education exceeds the ability of the classes beneath the Ultra Rich to pay for it. And God knows, "If you aren't Ivy League, you aren't anything at all!"

 

Think that's wrong? Then tell me why every single Supreme Court Justice is a graduate of Harvard Law School. What - no other law school in America is good enough to produce the quality of knowledge and intellect needed to be a SC Justice? Or is it that the Ultra Rich have shut the door on anyone other than their own "tribe" - as they now say in the Obama WH.

 

When the population takes out the education loans, and the kids are still unemployed - think they might get to figuring out that it's all a Big Lie? And how do you react when someone lies to you? So why would it surprise you that people are ready to take the heads off the Ultra Rich?

 

And ultimately, the Rand World leads to revolution, as the "muppets" finally get up the courage to kill the Ultra Rich and confiscate their property. That is where this is all heading.

 

It is sites like ZH that are educating these people to the reality that they are played for fools. It is educating them that they are nothing but debt slaves to the Ultra Rich. It is educating them to see that the Ultra Rich do nothing but suck the population dry. It is educating them that the Ultra Rich are nothing but greedy bastards who have no more respect for them than they do the ants they crush with their fashionista boots.

 

So expect to see more violence, more anger, more so-called extremists. The more they read ZH and its genre, the more angry reaction you'll see.

 

The Ultra Rich always bring it on themselves.

Hey scanned your rant and basicly your right.  Welcome to the party.  But lay off the Kennedys.  They took a lot of hits.

So a systemic dominoe collapse of the Euro unrolls before our eyes and if people say what it actually is and advocate getting rid of the broken system they are extremists...maybe in the sense that they are extremely correct or extremely sensible.

18% is a long way from winning. Communists used to get more than that, even won sometimes. Europe didn't collapse.

Ah, refreshing that wikipedia does have a nice factual quote or two[from the Farage article]: 

Farage predicts that if the situation continues it will lead to violence due to the people's inability to "determine their own futures through the ballot box" as it will become the only "logical" tool to enable them to escape from their "economic prison" i.e. the Eurozone. He proclaims "I can only hope and pray that the euro project is destroyed by the markets before that really happens."
