And now for something completely different–Nigel Farage speaking in the European Parliament on the economic chaos in Greece. Caution! His words have implications far beyond the state of Greece. And yes, my fellow Americans, what’s happening in Greece matters to you. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But it will matter just like the dead canary in the coal mine mattered to miners when its silence and death signalled the presence of deadly gases. Just like being able to ignite tap water matters. Who drinks flaming water? Just like the imprisonment of Tim DeChristopher matters for what it reveals about the nature of the legal system in America operating as a vehicle for political oppression. All are signs of something going “wrong” in a very serious manner. And if that doesn’t compel you to lend your ears to Farage’s little rant–then listen just for the entertainment factor. I think I’m developing a penchant for references to insane asylums. What’s that signify?
Much thanks to Berit for sending this delightful video my way. Oh the joys of cyberspace!
