The first shots are fired

However, at the moment, it’s not violence, merely very loud political protest:

Rifle shots were fired early Monday into the Athens offices of Greece’s conservative party, which leads the fragile coalition government, causing no injuries but intensifying a wave of political violence in the debt-wracked country. 

Remember, the US is actually worse off than Greece, by some financial measures.  The only significant difference is that Greece can’t print money because the ECB won’t permit it, while the US can’t print money because the Fed won’t permit it.

I suspect these are the first shots to be fired in the great wave of political dissolution that is about to sweep over the world.
