Why Europe's crypto-leaders love these riots

Crypto-leaders, or oligarchs, love the current riots spreading from Greece across Europe:


The unrest that has gripped Greece is spilling over into the rest of Europe, raising concerns the clashes could be a trigger for opponents of globalization, disaffected youth and others outraged by the continent's economic turmoil and soaring unemployment.

"What's happening in Greece tends to prove that the extreme left exists, contrary to doubts of some over these past few weeks," French Interior Ministry spokesman Gerard Gachet told The Associated Press.

As Europe plunges into recession, unemployment is rising, particularly among the young. Even before the crisis, European youths complained about difficulty finding well-paid jobs — even with a college degree — and many said they felt left out as the continent grew in prosperity.

In Greece, demonstrators handed out fliers Thursday listing their demands, which include the reversal of public spending cuts that have brought more layoffs, and said they were hopeful their movement would spread.

Oligarchs cannot find better advocates than these uninformed protestors.

The far-left will demand more public spending; because there's no money coming in, that will create debt spending, devalue the economy and in turn the currency, and force more drastic measures.

And forced drastic measures is what oligarchs enjoy. Bring in another 10 million immigrants -- we make money off the cheap labor and the new housing. Or, let's have a war. Maybe even provoke things further, and then sell private security so you're "safe from Anarchists and Nazis."

And people fall for it, every time. So much for the idea democracy would save us ;)
