"There is no means of avoiding a final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved."

Greek Protests Turn Violent as Former Government Minister Attacked by Crowd

First it was Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla Parker-Bowles that were under attack by an unruly mob.  Now it is happening in Greece.

From the UK Telegraph:
Kostis Hatzidakis, who is now an opposition MP, was left with blood pouring from his head after being chased and beaten by dozens of protesters. 
He was set upon by up to 100 youths, who shouted "Thieves" and "Shame on you" when he emerged from the Greek parliament building on Constitution Square, in central Athens. 
Protesters hurled lumps of concrete and paving stones at riot police, set fire to cars and smashed shop fronts.
Here is a video of the protests:
