Autocracy arrives in Europe.
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.
Take it away, Falco!

der Kommissar geht um!
Er wird dich anschau’n
und du weißt warum.
Die Lebenslust bringt dich um.”
Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?
