Mazower’s Opinions

Mark Mazower has, for some time now, been writing poignant and increasingly strongly worded opinion articles about the effects of the crisis, the social and political repercussions that few politicians and economists bother worrying about while trying, unsuccessfully, if not plain badly, to enforce a flawed economic policy throughout Europe. His articles are grounded, accurate with the facts and highly worrisome, a scarily intense forewarning of how things can go wrong; they demonstrate the kind of foresight you would expect but seldom find in the foolish, greedy and highly myopic politicians currently governing Europe.

    Upton Sinclair once wrote that “it is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it”. So no matter what Mazower writes and warns, the fact that these very people live in their own protected bubble makes it irrelevant for decision makers.

    IMHO, since the Crisis erupted through continuous austerity we’ve been living in a world like the one in Ph. K. Dick’s “Penultimate Truth” run by political organizations that use 1984’s Newspeak. And they do not even need to rewrite History for people simply do not read.
