Democracy Agonistes

The preferred end result:

When Wolfgang Schäuble proposed that Greece should postpone its elections as a condition for further help, I knew that the game would soon be up. We are at the point where success is no longer compatible with democracy. The German finance minister wants to prevent a “wrong” democratic choice. Similar to this is the suggestion to let the elections go ahead, but to have a grand coalition irrespective of the outcome. The eurozone wants to impose its choice of government on Greece – the eurozone’s first colony.

Multinational corporations, especially financial firms, dream of a day when "nations" are nominally, but no more than nominally, run by their hand-picked technocrats. That day may come sooner than you think.
