greece, democracy, europe




what are people(s) in europe (and, of course, the rest of the world) complaining about? don't we have enough democracy all of a sudden? aren't we, all of a sudden, free enough?

this is the era of free access to information; one should take a look at the sources, and, thank God, there are several free voices across the globe that can --still-- speak; and be heard;

developments in the european continent are important and happen fast; some say, not fast enough; not a long time ago we heard official references to the southern countries, and ireland, as PIIGS!!!!... seriously??!... it is a long established fact and an everyday reality to every living person on this planet that the one omnipotent word [and, obviously, activity] is economy; again: not too long ago, people were talking about the european union as a union of the people(s); as it turns out it is more like a union of the markets; oh, and btw, what does the euphemism 'markets' mean? answer: it means the banking system, basically; it means those specific people who pull the strings and get to decide on the kind of present and future that each country, people, human being is going to have; right now, as we speak, there are different intentions and velocities at which the components of the continent are moving ---

but i digress... ----greece: in 2009 there was a change of governments; the conservative (right wing) party had to go; literally; we are now told that its leader was 'ordered' [by ...???] to step down; they gave the power to the so called socialist party; via elections, certainly... only: the socialist leader was promising at the time that there would be no crisis any longer, due to the fact that "...there IS money"; that turned out to be the biggest lie; a conscious deliberate one; it was later proven that the man had already been negotiating with notorious international fora before being elected, after that the party in question kept undermining the country's financial position via insulting statements (which have a direct negative effect on the 'markets'), actions and omissions, left the boat helpless amidst various international winds for months, and then, one morning, announced that "we are getting 'help' from the imf"; all that time, and up to this very moment, individuals from within the local and international banking system have kept high places inside the government and operating in mysterious ways; the government (actually: the two major parties that have been forming governments for the last decades) is supposedly seeking rescue, but in fact working with the very people who either participated in the disaster or are just taking care of their own interests, which is the 'natural' thing to do: money...

to cut a long story short, anyone who is misinformed will gladly think and/or talk about the greek people in the worst of words; that is what propaganda does; they will attack their productivity, their honesty, their ethos; the truth is that the greek people, the citizens, are to blame for one thing and one thing alone: they trusted their leaders; they trusted their politicians who are the only ones responsible --along with a few others, NOT unknown any more-- for what is going on now;

and what is going on now? ---from 2009 to this very moment a zillion of measures has been taken behind the people's back; the greek people, the sovereign voting citizens, apart from being manipulated, deceived and now exploited, were never asked to give their opinion about anything; not once; they just had to sit back and watch their politicians act against their will; two things: a) were there other alternatives in the first place? -- independent economists keep proving that there were and still are, different ways to build the economy without falling into the nightmare; b) did the people actually show that they are against all this? -- YES, repeatedly; from the month of may onwards, the country has been boiling: peaceful protests and gatherings outside the parliament, public figures with their speeches, music and dance and happenings in all cities: the state answered with fierce attacks of the riot police often acting as common criminals DELIBERATELY, multiple incidents of extreme violence took place, officials remained in their places and everything went on as before...

THERE IS NO DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTION CAPABLE OF HELPING AND PROTECTING THE GREEK PEOPLE AGAINST THEIR HOSTILE REGIME !!!



THE NIGHTMARE. THE PRESENT

A) in november a parliamentary coalition was formed and took over, with a representative of the banking system playing the role of the prime minister [interestingly enough, something similar has just happened in italy... wow...] : NOT VIA ELECTIONS, NOT VOTED FOR, THUS NOT LEGITIMATE; they will carry out the pending program THAT LITERALLY KILLS THE CITIZENS whereas there is only a vague whisper about elections at some future point; was that what the people demanded?  N O !  --and who gives the orders, again? check your sources, people...

B) justice sleeps or works side by side with the regime and against the people in a number of ways: the treaties that were signed, the measures taken and the overall political decisions not only were never approved by the people thus lack all legitimacy, they are also directly against the constitution and the articles that rule procedures like that; at the same time, both the political and the judicial system fail to shed light on the corruption, which has been playing its own part since day one (as in ALL countries of the world), and send even ONE politician to prison for their actions; another keyword: Argentina, 2000-2001...

BTW: corruption exists in ALL countries of this planet; he in whose country there is no corruption cast the first stone...
C) the suicide rate has gone up because of the situation; how can something like that even go unnoticed???!!! and yet, on top of that, the 'government' has now decided to cut off the electrical power for all those who are no more capable of paying their taxes (one tax, in particular) ; just days ago the european officials in charge of those matters [nothing to do with any 'officials' who take active part in destroying the country] stated, after being notified by a greek left wing official (not by the government of course), that, on top of everything else, such measures are AGAINST the european community law and as such they are UNACCEPTABLE --- so what? the greek government, a coalition now, formed by the right wing-the socialist party-and the extreme right wing, doesn't give a &*^&; they go on as planned;

THE GREEK POLITICIANS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE LEFT WING, SPREAD THE TERROR AND BLACKMAIL THEIR OWN CITIZENS:  M A D N E S S !!!

THE VERY ONES WHO SHOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR BRINGING THE NATION OVER FOUR DECADES TO THIS MESS, ARE STILL IN THEIR ARMCHAIRS AND ACT AS SAVIOURS:  M A D N E S S !!!

(it is interesting to bear in mind that a long time prominent member of the socialist government and also current minister of finance is a former professor of constitutional law... i rest my case...)


EPILOGUE


greece is dying. so is democracy. so is, perhaps, europe.

unbelievable, huh? the mind can't cope with the information... who would have imagined the face of europe in the 21st c. no less, like... this??...

and one last(?) question: who are the ones, countries? or organizations? or individuals?..., who demand that a country, a whole nation, SELL all its assets, at a 'good' price too, and turn its citizens into slaves with no sovereignty and no independence?... one more topic for further investigation...

and here's one more 'last' question: what is 'debt' really? where does it come from? how is it that soooo many countries owe those COLOSSAL sums of money? and whom do they owe them to??!! :O :O :O also: was greece the country with the biggest debt or the biggest deficit around???... more food for thought...

anyone reading this may take it as an appeal, or as a purely subjective text, as fiction, as whatever... however, it is based on undeniable facts and the question remains: greece aside, where exactly is europe headed? where is the planet headed, for that fact? who makes the rules and who is supposedly 'more equal' so as to decide on other people's future? whereas britain consistently refuses to be a part of the european 'dream', a few more european countries are either knocking or thinking about knocking on the imf's door... did the new currency, the euro, bring happiness ( = read: prosperity)? was it ever even meant to do that?

this is the greek, actually global, tragedy; ignoring facts is not bliss; accurate information is; and lack of bias; of course, the real tragedy is that even with that knowledge, an extra step needs to be taken.
