Y'know, I really am jealous of the Greeks – not because of the shape their economy's in, nor because of their government's servility to capital, nor because of the state-imposed "austerity" programs they struggle against. I'm jealous of the Greeks because they haven't forgotten how to fight in the streets. Meanwhile, in the USA, "progressives" are "fighting" the imminent loss of hard-won social safety nets by waving signs, having teach-ins, and voting Democratic. C'mon, America – off your ass and into the streets. It's time to get your Greek on!
