"Look for your own. Do not do what someone else could do as well as you. Do not say, do not write what someone else could say, could write as well as you. Care for nothing in yourself but what you feel exists nowhere else. And, out of yourself create, impatiently or patiently, the most irreplaceable of beings."
(Andre Gide)

Pre-revolutionary Situation Triigers Talk of a Coup

EXTRACT: In all likelihood then, with its economy spiralling downwards, Greece will need another bailout within a relatively short space of time. On March 4 Der Spiegel carried a major story saying Greece will need a third international rescue package worth €50 billion by 2015 - a viewpoint that seems to be shared by the troika itself, which has cast doubt - to put it mildly - on the idea that Greece will be able to borrow again on the international money markets come 2015.
This leaves Greece in an utterly impossible position. With sky-high debts, a recession stretching out indeterminately into the future and massive loan interests to pay, there is no way Athens can meet Brussels’ never-ending demands for austerity and ‘reforms’. A circle that cannot be squared.
