Another Chapter of Shock Doctrine?

I was perusing the news and found this fascinating article about the situation in Greece. Massive protests erupted yesterday in honor of May Day, and this article is supposed to give a general picture of what is going on. It talks about how Greece is in debt and must "trip the fat", having read Shock Doctrine is it fascinating to take a look at how the right wing media portrays situations where free market policies on course to be implemented. Chilling as well that this is what a lot of people read and believe: that Greece will be better off if it adopts the IMF's programs. This article doesn't even come close to telling the whole story, and this is probably the only thing a lot of people will read.
