Here is a photo that drips with psychological potential. The details are unimportant. The only thing you must know is that the blonde babe is a model, and the woman (yes, it’s a woman) on the left is a makeup artist. Think about it, all of it.

Violent protests in Madrid and talk of secession in the wealthy area of Catalonia may push Spain’s prime minister to ask the rest of Europe for rescue money.
Spain hands out more money to citizens than the government takes in. The handouts must be reduced, and that’s why the citizens are rioting.
That’s Spain. Then there’s Greece where tens of thousands took to the streets in violent protests just yesterday. The police fired teargas.
The violence was urged by Greece’s two biggest unions. Not a surprise. Greece hands out more money to citizens than the government takes in. The handouts must be reduced, and that’s why the Greeks too are rioting.
It’s hard to apply brakes to handouts.
Similar situations are brewing in other European nations that are fond of socialism.

In the United States, the percentage of people on welfare and “disabilities” is skyrocketing, and the debt hole is $5 trillion deeper now than it was four years ago.
The current White House is fond of socialism.
It’s nicer not to think about that. Better to play with your iPad, make a new “friend” on Facebook or maybe marvel at the psychological elements of that photo at the top.
The human condition. It is fascinating, ¿no?
