Why Iceland Should Be in the News, But Is Not

An Italian radio program's story about Iceland’s on-going revolution is a stunning example of how little our media tells us about the rest of the world. Americans may remember that at the start of the 2008 financial crisis, Iceland literally went bankrupt. The reasons were mentioned only in passing, and since then, this little-known member of the European Union fell back into oblivion.

As one European country after another fails or risks failing, imperiling the Euro, with repercussions for the entire world, the last thing the powers that be want is for Iceland to become an example. Here's why:

^ This. If every country pulled an Iceland, shook itself off, regained it's own currency, took control of it's own economy, froze the assets of the criminals and bankers and issued warrants for their arrest. the entire world could shift it's state of affairs. We could then genuinely help each other recover with real trade and real assets; no more of this virtual monkeying around, speculative stock markets, and criminal financiers running our governments.
