The EU is ripe for revolution. The banksters and politicians have robbed the people of their standard of living. Just wait and see, civil war will begin to break out everywhere. When people can't feed themselves making an honest living they turn to organized crime and militias to fill the void. If history repeats itself, we will see hundreds of politicians and rich people slaughtered like the pigs they are for being so greedy and treating the common people so poorly by the end of the decade.
