The Washington Post opinion writer George F. Will comments on the recent elections in Greece.
“Tsipras is a peculiar phenomenon, a defiant mendicant. He urged voters to do what they did. In voting “no, ” they asserted that Greece’s dignity is incompatible with loans that come with conditions attached. Tsipras’s Syriza Party insists, however, that dignity is compatible with perpetual dependency on the forbearance and productivity of others.”
