Europe’s creditor powers have reacted with fury as Greece presses ahead with plans to smash its EU-IMF Troika programme and demand war reparations for Nazi occupation, raising the risk of a traumatic rupture with Athens by the end of the month. ... In a clear sign that Washington is losing patience with the eurozone’s strategy of fiscal contraction, Mr Obama almost seemed to endorse Greece’s demands for a radical shift in policy. “You cannot keep on squeezing countries that are in the midst of depression. At some point there has to be a growth strategy in order for them to pay off their debts to eliminate some of their deficits,” he said last week.I'm deliriously happy to see Greece firming up. At first it looked like Syriza was surrendering even before the fight. Now they're at least SOUNDING serious about breaking away. Anything that helps to break a monster is good. EU and US are infinitely evil monsters. Both need to be broken. But why is USA STRONG sort of halfway supporting Greece? This is happening at the SAME time that we are using EU as a weapon in our multi-front vicious nasty unprovoked attack on Russia. I understand why we're starting WW3 by attacking Russia. Putin has blasphemed the Holy Image of our Satanic Prophet[ess] by supporting Christianity and supporting Natural Law. Anyone who blasphemes the Prophet[ess] must be SMASHED. But why do we halfway support the new government of Greece against our satanic ally EU? I got a clue from the attitudes of the usual quasi-populist bloggers toward Croatia. They were completely uninterested in Croatia's ACTUAL AND ACCOMPLISHED populist action, the Debt Jubilee that ACTUALLY HELPS poor people. For years these bloggers have been pushing for debt forgiveness here and abroad. Now that it's ACTUALLY DONE, they're bored. But they've been fanatically supporting Syriza, which hasn't ACTUALLY DONE SHIT yet. These bloggers seem to think something else is more important than ACTUALLY HELPING THE POOR. What is it? Hmm. Let's try a few quick googles. Yup, yup, and yup. Okay. Now I understand. No longer a mystery. In other words, WW3 is a RELIGIOUS WAR, not a territorial or economic war. Some of the battles and weapons pertain to territory and economics, but it's primarily about religion. Putin and Croatia have insulted our Prophet[ess] and must be SMASHED. The new Greek government sort of favors our Prophet[ess] so we sort of support them.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
