People do not like it, but willingly subjugate themselves to the powers of unelected EU bureaucrats. As Occupy celebrated their failure of being unable to do anything about it, now corrupt politicians sit even safer in their seats, continuing the pillage and theft of the entire system with impunity. As the Media keeps praising EU Democracy, could somebody enlighten us how the people of Greece democratically voted to purchase $500,000 worth of wine, so that the Brussel bureaucrats could drink themselves under the table?

Do as I say, not as I do is common among the political elite. Countries need to address a life of austerity in order to pay for past excesses of failed government policies.
