Some highlights from Pt. 2:

About Greece:
It’s a society in total moral collapse. It’s already there, not collapsing. […] I took two tax collectors out for drinks, and the tax collectors both explained to me, that the way you got promoted in the tax collection business, was not to collect the taxes.
