This article below turned out to be very interesting on many levels, most likely without intent.
We know that sooner or later, there will be a world currency along with a single world government. The Eurozone is essentially a model of a world currency, only on a smaller scale. The principles are the same, however, with different nations all under a single currency.

The lesson that the countries of the Eurozone cannot trust Germany to act with wisdom and goodwill was known, but now we also see that restraint is also not in their repetoire.

Are the lights going out all over Europe? Not yet, but there is a darkness casting its shadow over the earth. I fear that Greece is only the beginning of a new phase in the degradation of the human condition by the power of insatiable greed, and spiritual wickedness in high places.
