I have my own views about Europe's immediate future (which as I understand our resident EU expert differs with, but politely respects my right to hold an opposing view). I'm of the opinion that if the Brussels bureaucrats can't find a way to band aid things together legally, then they will simply change the law. The referee is part of the game there, and the people aren't going to win against them.
In other words, I think the departure of Greece from the EUR is being reported prematurely and that it will yet be cobbled back together for at least one more round of transfer payments. And until widespread violence is imminent, things will continue more or less as they have been for the last few years. But I digress.
I was reading this VDH bit in the corner and it got me thinking. The writing is exemplary of course - it always is with VDH. And after hearing his view of how things are going there, a question popped into my head immediately, and with unusual clarity.
"I wonder how things would be different in Europe if instead of Communists they had a Tea Party too?"
