Anti-democracy

First they proposed just replacing the Greek government with a kommissar. Then there was the proposal to force all of Greece’s political parties to agree to the bail-out terms so that people wouldn’t be able to vote for an anti-bail-out party; this is a tried and true IMF policy to bypass democratic institutions since, just before an election, no party wants to seem like they’re the ones that fucked up the bail out deal.

Apparently that’s not enough and they’re trying to postpone elections so the unelected PM can stay in power longer. At some point they just have to admit that they hate democracy because it makes other countries hard to control, something that’s long driven the first-world’s policy in the third-world.
