the power of propaganda OR 'greeks are racist' and other --ridiculous- fairy tales

in recent decades the country, though small, has always received and welcomed immigrants; it is even this very blog's personal experience that there have ALWAYS been foreigners among us, living in the same neighborhood, in the same building, working by our side, creating their families, hanging out with the locals, watching their children go to school with all other children, watching them play, make friends; hell, people --such as this very blog-- who enjoy using their language skills, ranging from intermediate to advanced to polyglottery (with zero interest, mind you, in youtube-self-promotion...), had all the more reason to create such personal contacts, because they could use their language(s). 
and learn. mutually. and live. peacefully.

a political (no kidding!) change occurred, back in the early 90's, encouraged by the very protagonists of the current political scene of today: the ratio of immigrants, of specific origins, increased; though the details of everyday life changed, the big picture, as far as the people are concerned, remained the same: friendly and tolerant; and welcoming.

greece's policy for immigrants is flawed; it is either dormant or non existing; another precious piece of treason, another gift from the politicians to their own country; and, in the few recent years, another change occurred; it is still in progress now: due to dubious international ( = european) agreements, such as Dublin II, and also due to international factors (read: geopolitical games, which any kind reader may, in good faith, search for and find out), the greek people have had to stand by and watch, without being asked, silent witnesses of what is being 

a violent flow of immigrants, mostly illegal (YES, there IS such a thing), not all of whom are 'desperate poor people fleeing from their countries due to warfare' (some of them certainly are), not all of whom even have the best intentions, as the incidents can prove; regardless, the fact remains: once they enter(???!!!), they are trapped here; even if they had a different european destination in mind; a violent change of the population, of the country's traits, of life itself; no questions asked, no permission needed, no infrastructure prepared, no conditions -sanitary, economic, other-- [pre]considered; the country's capital is being bombarded, the face of whole neighborhoods is being altered; an unnatural, thus unpleasant situation has been made 'normal'; but it is negative and unpleasant by definition, both for immigrants and locals: it is estimated that, for a rough 10 million of an [aging] greek population there is a [growing, uncontrollable] 2.5 million immigrants, the vast majority illegal.

but hey, we've got something to talk about now! there is a new talk of the town (of our miserable global village, actually): the fresh new label which comes so easy to some international centres and, equally(!), to leftist local propaganda and, by all means, the local politicians/traitors (who take orders from abroad and serve inter-national, super-national, not national, objectives) is that 'greeks are racist'; seriously? --and they use as a 'top' argument the existence of a right wing party; as though there were a single country in europe that does not have their very own... no-one of those who are eager to prove their ridiculous 'point' stops for one second to investigate, or simply wonder, WHY and HOW those thousands and thousands of asians and africans set off to travel thousands of dangerous and EXPENSIVE kilometers, WHY the ones who are muslims --the vast majority, it seems-- even pick greece, an orthodox christian country, as their destination, HOW they all somehow make it to the very capital of the country (which is far from any border or point of entrance), WHY and HOW it even makes ANY SENSE at all to expect (read: demand!) from a small country to have space and resources for all those people, hence HOW the immigrants are supposed to support themselves remaining within the law, etc... do 'humanists' (?) care?--but perhaps they don't care; perhaps they only care to use a stale, hollow humanistic argument against the 'non tolerant, xenophobic' locals, when they should be promoting the truth: legal status aside, the country cannot receive any more, it is already heavily overpopulated, and those who have no business being there--e.g. for reasons of political asylum-- should just GO; for humanistic reasons alone...

(to be continued)
