That's because Post 9/11, All Demonstrators Are Considered Terraists and a threat to TPTB. Opps, I meant a threat to national security.

30 years ago many protestors were willing to die for a cause and that cause was often the removal of the military. Give it time I can't see the end game for Greece not involving the military

<<The history of democracy traces back to Athens to its re-emergence and rise from the 17th century to the present day. According to one definition, democracy is a political system in which all the members of the society have an equal share of formal political power.>>

Yes.  Pure Democracy = Mob Rule. 

In general, when people today use "Democracy" as a catch-all phrase to describe Western political systems, they're referring to the benefits of democratic processes within those systems where everyone gets an equal vote on representatives and various issues; not pure Democracy.  In a pure democracy, there's no limit to the type of issue that would be put to vote.  If someone doesn't like what you've said, they can put your life to a vote and with a little bad press, down you'd go.

well said - it's about the democratic processes

it's the same discussion as with scientific method

blueridgeviews's picture

Consensus is the new scientific method.

Husk-Erzulie's picture

Pure Democracy does not preclude a formal system of law, all human societies have them; they arise organically.  Systems of Law come into being to address the needs, or shortcomings, of consensus decision making and to prevent consensus systems from devolving into "mob rule" (I.E. the vigilence commitees of San Francisco).  A pure, consensus driven, libertarian social structure does not preclude "The Rule of Law" or sophisticated legal structures. 

 

The cornerstone of Anglo-Saxon common law, upon which excellent, and elegant, legal structures can be, and are, based, is the inviolable committment that any person, having been accused of a crime, and facing severe punishment, up to, and including, death, shall have the full metre of Justice, and due process, which is accorded to everyone equally and without question.  (What, by the way, is it that the Zero administration, and Zero his own drooling self, simply don't get about The Rule of Law ?)

Anyone else but me noticed how fucking evil the EU logo is? That funky "e" with all the yellow stars hanging around it? On one hand it look real mickey Mouse stupid, then on the other hand it looks like it could be the cover of 1984. Is it just me?

Melin's picture

If you Google EU Flag, most images don't have the contrived E symbol.  Is it recently added? 

Ghordius's picture

fucking evil? why? I agree it's somewhat idiotic to add the "e" to the flag

the official flag is still the blue field with the stars

and I somehow like the official common currency logo

So when do the NATO strikes against the Greek evil regime begins? Oh wait, since a globalist controls Greece, it's not gonna happen.

When the Greek military or the people overthrows those corrupt bankers puppets, then they will be invaded.

"See the guy in the photo there, dangling an ax from his left hand? That’s Greece’s new “Minister of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks” Makis Voridis captured back in the 1980s, when he led a fascist student group called “Student Alternative” at the University of Athens law school. It’s 1985, and Minister Voridis, dressed like some Kajagoogoo Nazi, is caught on camera patrolling the campus with his fellow fascists, hunting for suspected leftist students to bash. Voridis was booted out of law school that year, and sued by Greece’s National Association of Students for taking part in violent attacks on non-fascist law students."

People don't realize banks charge them to use currency. This is why prices rise so high, because the cost to use currency is so high. They don't have to riot, they could just use a currency that doesn't charge them as much.

Citizen action in Japan: Take radioactive soil from garden, put in box, mail to Environment Ministry saying 'here--please dispose of properly'.  Government response:  Prompt illegal dumping.

http://www3.nhk.or.jp/daily/english/20111117_28.html

Govt official dumps radiation-contaminated soil

An Environment Ministry official has dumped radiation-contaminated soil near his home in Saitama Prefecture, near Tokyo.

Environment Minister Goshi Hosono revealed this at a news conference on Thursday.

He said a cardboard box containing the soil was sent to his ministry on November 8th from a sender who identifies himself as a resident of Fukushima City.

An enclosed message calls on the ministry to store and dispose of the soil collected from the sender's garden.

The Environment Ministry kept the soil in its warehouse, and the radiation reading taken close to it was 0.18 microsieverts per hour.

A section chief at the ministry said this is no higher than readings taken in many areas in and around Tokyo and suggested he could dispose of the soil in his own garden.

His subordinate then dumped the soil in a vacant lot near his home on Sunday.

This was revealed after another box marked as "ash" was sent to the ministry apparently from the same sender on Wednesday.

The ministry is said to have already retrieved the soil and plans to dispose of it appropriately.

Hosono said he takes the inappropriate dumping of the soil very seriously and apologized. He said it should not have happened, as his ministry has been playing a central role in efforts to clean up areas contaminated with radiation.

Hosono said he will punish the section chief and study taking punitive actions against other senior officials, including himself.

He also said sending radiation-contaminated materials to his ministry will not lead to a fundamental solution to the problem, and called on people not to do so.

Huge Wall St. protest in Downtown Los Angeles

I'm watching it from the 24th floor.

I'm expecting a massive tear gas attack, they will probably bring out the water hoses soon to clean these bums out.

By the way, millions of hedge funds who are shorting FSLR due to Euro bond weakness are starting to scramble to cover the biggest short play of 2011.

An Epic Squeeze is probably setting up, up 4% already today.

Anybody here going to play it?

there is no end to the scheming is there...  and you can't go back far enough in history to find the beginning either.

High Plains Drifter's picture

for me, its nothing personal. i don't hate them for what they do. i cannot criticize someone who does something very well.  they do what they do very well and many goyim fully support them in their quest. i  salute their cleverness and their intelligence. they are a worthy adversary.  but having said that i say this. it is us vs. them. therefore, we had better get our act together very soon or we are toast.  with their actions and the  way they are, it takes two to tango.  in order to affect their plans they need our help. white people must wake up about this. for me, its all about awareness. one must be aware of what is going on around them. most sheep are sleeping and steeped deeply in the brainwashing that has gone on and the political correctness and the diversity bullshit arguments.  i have long ago left that reservation and i will not go back. never.

well laid plans for sure, but, watch for them to implode...  even the sheeple will soon be awake, whether they like it or not.

The more I think about this Greek thing the sadder I get. The "Olive" countries are very different despite having similar problems. I traveled all alone all through Greece and was not threatened once. They are a brave, yet peaceful people and their streets are very safe.

The same summer I traveled thru southern Italy and southern France. You can have them! Both of these places were liteally overwhlemed with desparate MENA refugees and it is no wonder I was mugged many evenings and twice in broad daylight. Luckily, I was thrashed only once and not too bad. The police there are laughable.

The under-reporting of the seriousness of 300,000 MENA people, poor, unskilled and angry, into these countries is scary. The long term ramification are serious imo.

I would like to see more (how about one!) anaylsis about these social issues.

LFMayor's picture

you got mugged how often?  You must just radiate virile menace.   Put the pastel shirts, creased khakis and the sweater vest in the trash, see it that helps.

americanspirit's picture

You are quite right PH29 - and if you think southern Italy and France are good places to get mugged you should visit just about any large city in Europe where you will be able to enjoy the same delightful experience. There aren't just 300,000 MENA immigrants/refugees - there are millions. Then of course there's the US - try strolling around Detroit, for example, or South LA. I'm afraid that people with no future and no hope just can't resist a little easy money when they see it walking past. Oh, and you're also right about the police. They obviously have more important things to do - like coming down with Blue Flu for higher pay & benefits. /s

Back in the day it was Gypsy youth with cardboard begging signs.  They would get real close, then use the signs as cover to reach for your pockets.  Hilarious local culture, I tell ya. 

 

Hey, that tactic is kinda like the OWS protestors...reaching for the goodies under the cover of the signs!
