    whom austerity helps. That's the rentier class, who benefit from the greatly-cheaper labor which no longer has a viable safety net to turn to, or public employment to compete with the crumbs their 0.1% feudal overlords toss them.

    Want to know the real rationale behind austerity? It's a philosophy of the rentiers, by the rentiers' paid think-tanks, for the rentiers.

    At no point does the good of the nation as a whole enter the discourse in an austerity-dominated discussion.
