The biggest news of the world--bigger than the US Open, bigger than the treaty with Iran, bigger than the economic melt-down ongoing in China--is this: the refugee crisis.

Peter Alexander Meyers | Posted 07.08.2015 | Politics
Peter Alexander Meyers

What do they really want? That's the question everyone is asking about both the Germans and the Greeks. Aspirations explicit and veiled circulate.

Is this something Alexis Tsipras can exploit? On such a field of increasing obstacle and impediment is where the next battle will play out. Politics is like this.

Greece should refuse a false choice by turning in a blank ballot. Refuse in this way the elite-mongering decisionism from which this scandalous insult to voting arises. Let it all go down.
