Applebaum on Athens

Characteristically insightful analysis of the recent Greek anarchy by the Post's best international editorialist. Key line: "If nothing else, they (the riots) show what can happen to a highly developed, post-ideological society whose organized politics no longer interest large groups of people." These rioters believe in nothing but their own mayhem.

Not a good scene in Athens. I read where public debt is 92% of Greece's GDP.
