>>100196985>EU showed ‘lack of solidarity’ toward Greece during crisis, says Juncker
Juncker can suck my ass. The Greeks voted for successive governments that bribed the populace with expensive retirement plans and government jobs financed by ridiculous loans they knew they'd never pay back because they expected other countries to pick up the tab. On top of that, the Greek system is so woefully corrupt that a large percentage of people simply do not pay taxes. Even the most generous estimates don't bode well for them (https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-33479946
What are we supposed to do, actually pick up the fucking tab? Are taxpayers in the Netherlands, Germany, France et cetera. supposed to suffer to save the Greeks? Because they were so irresponsible themselves? Nuts to that! They voted themselves into this mess, they can vote themselves out of it. Hopefully next time they'll learn that nothing is free. Macron said it himself, right before the yellow vests started reeing over economic reforms that will benefit the country: if someone promises you both lower taxes and more government jobs, he's lying to you. >B-But the Greeks will starve
Let them. Let them go hungry. Let them overthrow their government and hang the traitors who whored them out. Let them default on their debts for all I care. Let's just NOT perpetuate this broken system. That would make us enablers and I do not consent to being made an enabler.
