You really have to read it all to believe the loathsome, callous disregard for democracy and the people:
“What we’re now doing with the fiscal union, what I’m describing here, is a short-term step for the currency,” Mr. Schäuble said. “In a larger context, naturally we need a political union.” (…)
He sees the turmoil as not an obstacle but a necessity. “We can only achieve a political union if we have a crisis,” Mr. Schäuble said.
And that, dear reader, is how we are played by those that have set themselves above us. And they wonder why we occasionally dream of executions at dawn.
