Coming Soon To A "Democracy Near You"

From Reuters:

Exclusive: EU floats worst-case plans for Greek euro exit: sources

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European finance officials have discussed as a worst-case scenario limiting the size of withdrawals from ATM machines, imposing border checks and introducing capital controls in at least Greece should Athens decide to leave the euro.
EU officials have told Reuters the ideas are part of a range of contingency plans. They emphasized that the discussions were merely about being prepared for any eventuality rather than planning for something they expect to happen - no one Reuters has spoken to expects Greece to leave the single currency area.

The measures discussed are moves by one's own government to be sure one may not move their money or person at their own discretion, but only if it does not inconvenience the ruling mandarins and bureaucrats.
That is not freedom. If this does not disturb you , well go back to chewing your cud and rejoin the herd.

I have long believed the most dangerous thing that the average person will ever face is their own government. It looks to me as if a new generation of Europeans is about to learn that lesson first hand.
