Breakdown of contract

In the Irish Times via alert Richard Pine of the Durrell School Corfu:

  • A breakdown of the contract between citizens and authority

  • LETTER FROM GREECE: The horrendous debt of every man, woman and child has brought hostility and resistance on to the streets

  • SAMUEL JOHNSON said of fear of death that it “concentrates the mind wonderfully”.

    So too does fear of bankruptcy.

    In fact, it takes a complete financial collapse such as the current Greek crisis to bring home to ordinary folks the destitution of their society.
