“There are 3 classes of men; lovers of wisdom, lovers of honour, and lovers of gain.”
If design flaw in the EU monetary system can only be corrected with a loss of national rights, Greeks are being asked to choose the lesser of two evils, which both lead to a future of serfdom no matter how you cut it. Legions of voting age youngsters who once hoped to follow their parent’s footsteps and polish a seat in the civil service must now deal with the reality of going through the motions of deciding their future when everybody knows that was flushed down the toilet while some were still in diapers.
As in every other financially battered corner of the world, Greece began it’s downward plunge in the nineties as a result of Glass-Steagall’s repeal in the US that re-allowed cross ownership in ventures known to breed corrupt practice. The endgame being the flushing out of all the pension funds formerly denominated in Drachmae, Athens got into bed with Wall Street’s whore number one Goldman Sachs and woke up with a nasty, debilitating disease the very next day, which can only be treated but not cured.
False prosperity and sudden enrichment of minor functionaries through enlargement of their staff and coffers laid the ground work for a lottery winner’s style emotional roller coaster ride ending in Euro 2004 straight through till the successful Olympic Games. Greeks were in a state of euphoria and national polls said most people felt great even though they didn’t know why. Credit expansion didn’t harm that illusion, the Japanese motorcycle makers had bonanzas with over 50% annual growth some years in a row.
But there were signs of impending doom when finance turned to full blown gambling as far back as the dot-com bubble, the Greek tide receded and all sorts were revealed to be splashing about naked in turbulent market waters, street sweepers and sheep merchants included all played the shares game and lost. Groups of professionals who pooled funds to join in the party found themselves just as stretched and practically wiped out almost from the outset. But they entered a comfort zone in parroting the mainstream narratives to lessen the sting of utter nincumpoopery in their greed.
Only clever people are susceptible to excruciatingly stupid behaviour, the average guy knows he’s not smart enough to conspire with a large group of cutthroats to pull off a crime of a lifetime and therefore avoids the greater pitfalls. It was all too good to be true and those with numbered accounts parked their last funds in Geneva. Now, as we witness the orchestrated farce that is Greek sovereign debt descend to an even lower depth in the political mud, it’s become apparent that the world isn’t quite what it was.
The hatred brewing against Greece is disturbingly reminiscent of a propaganda model dreamed up by Goebbels himself, the Reichskanzlei having no other template to deal with unwilling hostages in this Blitzkrieg by deception. It was once in the Germanic interest to uphold an unspoken suspicion that Greeks were unable to pay for all those weapons contracts built into each and every binding financial agreement emanating from Brussels. French banks and shipyards got their foot in the door too while the famous Scaramanga yards sat nearly idle, putting thousands of Greeks on the dole.
Fading belief in the national government is presumed by world domination strategists as the first sign that a population will submit to a global central authority for stability’s sake. But the requisite IMF riot lasted longer than anticipated in Greece so it was time to take the wind out of their sails with “promise them anything” tactics. The Aegean version of Hope and Change false flaggery may not elicit the response the political class is hoping for but it does preclude any random lynchings from receiving wide public support during this virtual cessez-le-feu, G-Pap touts democratic credentials etc.
It is no less than a false flag attack on true liberty, meant to polarise, Hobson’s Choice by more accurate definition. Greece has served as a policy incubator under the sole direction of the Socialist International for as long as anyone can remember and their bureaucratic brigadiers are still following the globalist playbook to the Marxist letter. If the world’s premier capital holders can break the back of the self-admittedly most obstinate people on the planet by stiffing them with this dead horse, it’s deep kimchi.
Grand Poobah of the Socialist International, Mr. Papandreou is certifiably a foreign agent in every sense and to top that off, the planned, clandestinely supported resurgence of nationalist organs was successfully stimulated to send a political counterpunch that missed the mark, thereby gaining column inches and deflecting from the true issue at hand, fraud in the first instance. The entire Greek debt can be traced back to the Goldman Sachs hook-up and is therefore the proceeds of a crime, un-enforceable, end of story but Athens won’t investigate or prosecute. Naturally, the banker truth machine anti-semitism fireworks went off from all expected quarters.
It doesn’t help that both Mr. Papandreou and Goldman deal-clincher, ex-Prime Minister Constantinos Simitis (a.k.a. Aaron Avouris) have Jewish parentage either when added to recent Israeli actions and the mutual-defence pact, which seems to have backfired with the Turks flexing their muscles to rise from insignificance. Greeks are in a fix and it won’t be pretty if their history of standing their ground hasn’t been bred out of them by the feminising society that’s brought them to the brink of ruin. Rogue EU elements and others of every hue and ilk have bargained in their name to a dire consequence.
Many say the best vote is no vote at all, starve political hounds of attention they don’t deserve. Scrutiny is best left in the hands of the Athens prosecutor, who had better get off his Big Fat Greek sharpish and issue warrants for Lloyd Blankfein et al or he may find himself on the wrong side of the lines should civil war ignite. That’s now shifted from the realm of the possible over to the probable since the slashing of pensions and the pillage of livelihoods was swallowed by Greece’s government for sweet fuck all.
