    It reminds me of Argentina in the 1990's and what the middle class in the United States have been doing to themselves for the past decade. History repeats itself. One thing Greeks had that we in the U.S. do not is family homes to fall back on. Our urban areas might become war zones as they have in other countries experiencing a major economic crisis. Greed, be it the top 1%, the bottom 20% or the middle 79%, will ultimately be our species destruction.

    Pretty interesting. I didn't realize it was as bad as this article paints it.

    Yes, it's why I posted the article. I think most here assume that Greece is going to at least a preliminary state of SHTF, but many in America are too self-absorbed to realize things are tipping over in Greece and could easily happen here.
