Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
conspiracy theories don't become more plausible by the number of adherents they have. I stand by that.  The theory that the evil Germans are purposely "humiliating" the poor Greeks to drive them out of the Euro is ludicrous. The theory is a politcal weapon to a political end - namely inducing Germany and others to accept the current bailout with a minimum of conditioons and oversight.

Here we are and the same conspiracies are conventional wisdom, not only much remarked upon by serious columnists in newspapers all over the world, but by [...] politicians

The same could have been said about "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" at its time. Didn't make them more true, either.
