Democracy Triumphs in Greece

Greece wins

Today the birthplace of democracy was the scene of a triumph of the 99 Percent. Greeks voted against austerity by a 20-point margin. Paul Krugman:

[W]e have just witnessed Greece stand up to a truly vile campaign of bullying and intimidation, an attempt to scare the Greek public, not just into accepting creditor demands, but into getting rid of their government. It was a shameful moment in modern European history, and would have set a truly ugly precedent if it had succeeded.

    Can Greece show us how to defeat vulture capitalism? Let’s hope so.

    Gutsy move.

    Never could have happened here. Our voting system is too messed up.
