Stealing the Nation’s Heritage

Female ThiefFrom today’s Open Europe news summary:

Le Monde reports that the Spanish government is planning on putting “one quarter of the national heritage” up for sale in order to tackle their budget deficit. Euractiv Le Monde

The Spanish people have plundered their nation’s heritage over a few decades’ of socialism.  It Is no different than if thieves broke into the Prado, stole all the El Greco’s, and sold them in order to live a life of leisure for a few years.  Now the money is gone and everyone must go back to work…or steal something else.  Patrick Barron
