The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalized, and State will have to take the road which will enentually lead to communism!."

Examples Given: Pompeii, Mt!. Vesuvius, Mount St!. Helens, etc!. Nobody thinks about the dangers of building a quaint little resort community at the base of a volcano because, "That could never happen to us!"Www@QuestionHome@Com

Marx was pretty astute!. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it!. Most people repeat the same mistakes until they realize what they're doing!. If you pile on top of that all the history that has been destroyed and distorted over the millennium then you have a sad state of civilization spinning it's wheels about ever 4 generations, just long enough for the last generation to forget how the first generation screwed up!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It can POSSIBLY repeat itself!.!. but history can ALWAYS contradict itself!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Only if we are not paying attention!.
