What socialism gets you:

Violent protests continued Wednesday in Greece after parliament passed an unpopular austerity plan to avoid defaulting on the country’s massive debt.

The country is in the midst of a 48-hour general strike and violent street protests have become an increasingly common sight in Athens.
