What Greece needs is less Europe and more entrepreneurship

Nestled under the Acropolis, snug and safe among the ancient ruins of a long-ago grandeur, Plaka is the only remaining protected area of Athens. Greedy developers are as welcome there as a certain Minnesota dentist would be at an Aspinall Foundation animal sanctuary, but that doesn’t stop them from trying. I see signs on old and battered but beautifully classical houses asking for bids ‘to develop’. No harm in trying, I guess. With the economy in the toilet — a horrid word but necessary — anything can happen, and Greek law has never been sacrosanct when the loot’s right.

Never mind. It’s 40 degrees Celsius, probably 50 on the marble stones on the hill across from the Acropolis where I’m training. It is the hill of the Muses, where the monument to Philopappos, a Syrian prince, an Athenian citizen and a Roman consul, was erected in around 100 AD. He was a benefactor to the city and the marble monument to him was used by the wily Venetian Morosini as a gun emplacement to fire on the barbaric Turk dug inside the Acropolis and using the Parthenon as a powder keg. Just below the monument there is a beautiful Byzantine wooden church where my parents were married in 1933. I train just above it: 50 mae geris, 50 yaku tsukis, and so on. The sweat pours down, the heartbeat races, at times I feel I am about to pass out from the heat. But I survive it day after boiling day, and feel refreshed for some after-dark hell-raising.


The best moments are at twilight, when the old-fashioned street lamps come on, forming a haze of dusky powder that illuminates the sacred rocks. More often than not I find myself in a roof taverna drinking chilled white wine. It is one of life’s very rare and precious moments, though nowadays mostly ruined by the tourists and the migrants scrounging a living in the shadow of the most perfect edifice the world has known. Migrants are the latest nuisance to invade Europe, as if the old continent didn’t have enough problems. The paper that only reports the news it sees fit to, the New York Times, recently had a front-page story about burglaries in ritzy Athenian neighbourhoods. The reporting seemed fine until a lady who lives in Athens all year round pointed out that it was all true except for one important fact: every single break-in that had been solved by the fuzz turned out to have been perpetrated by foreigners, mostly Albanians, with a good mix of sub-Saharans and Romanians thrown in. (But don’t expect the NY Times to report that.)

The only thing that stands between them and utter anarchy in the poor neighbourhoods are the youths of Golden Dawn. Golden Dawn is referred to as a neofascist political party, instead of a nationalist one, because it will not play ball with those who have reduced the country to the state it is in today. A few of Golden Dawn’s followers have made some extremely unfortunate remarks, which has made it easy for the jackals of the media to paint the third largest political party in Greece as neo-Nazi. Take it from Taki: the party’s strength lies in its youth movement and its incorruptibility, and it’s as neo-Nazi as Ukip. Greece has never been an imperial power, and so it owes nobody nothing, as they say. We are a small country with very few natural resources and we need more uneducated migrants like Monica Lewinsky needs a cigar advertisement.

Which brings me to the clowns that pass for the Greek government nowadays. They are a mix of arrogance and false pride, and think that a T-shirt slogan is the equivalent of a well-thought-out policy. They came to power on a lie — that they would stand up to the bully of Brussels and the ‘Bitch of Berlin’ — but caved in after wasting six months showing off their bad manners around the capitals of Europe. Now they have fallen out between themselves about whether to accept the latest bailout. The ideologists of the Syriza party, veterans of corner-café wars for 40 years, espouse Marx and Trotsky as if this were 1922. Once Tsipras caved in, and accepted terms that were even worse than those previously on offer, the extreme left of the party revolted. With the banks shut tight and the clock ticking, the economy simply stopped dead in its tracks. But the men without ties and certainly without manners continued to talk, and talk, and talk some more. As I write, they are still talking, just as they used to in the corner cafés they grew up in. (In the meantime, last Sunday a long programme on German atrocities in Greece during world war two was aired during prime time. It was on the government-controlled network, but I suppose that was a coincidence.)

Between 2010 and 2013, 218,000 Greeks migrated, including 6,000 doctors. I’d hate to see the present figures. But the most preposterous and the most phoney has stayed, and continues to stay, the man with that large proboscis, shaved head, and a motorcycle as a prop — no speedster he — the ex-finance minister Varoufakis, now reduced to advising tired old Marxists on colonoscopy and its benefits. What can be done to encourage this ludicrous narcissist to emigrate is a mystery. But I’ll keep trying.

    Your head line is disgusting. I agree with UKIP and I want my country to be responsible for its own future. Sensible controls on immigration is NOT racist nor limiting the NHS, jobs or education to those who deserve it via birth. Nothing is free and most countries sensibly will ask you to pay up front. UKIP is neither islamaphobic nor Phobic in any sense. It recognises some existential threats whilst the other parties continue to fiddle whilst Rome burns. Japan is a role model in this sense.

    • Oddsbods

      Yes, although actually meaning that neither the UKIP nor Golden Dawn are in that category it is worded so as to give exactly that impression. Poor journalism.

      • Precambrian

        It’s bog standard journalism really; it’s purpose being a cheap trick to annoy you enough to read the article.

        • mdj

          Doesn’t seem to have worked, does it?

      • sidor

        It is worded so that the meaning you explained is only way to understand it. The rest is just a liberal play of imagination and baseless associations. Good journalism implies unambiguity, logical consistency and low redundancy. There is no need to discuss anything that is not in the text.

      • JoeDM

        Not poor journalism. Just deliberate anti-UKIP propaganda.

        • Alec

          Not deliberate anti-UKIP propaganda. Incitement and support for a recognized Nazi party.

    • Fritz123

      Yes, it is not racist, but it is xenophobia and this is very unbritish IMHO

      • mmac1968

        Xenophobia is a left wing construct to shut down debate. Refusing debate is Un British. A phobia is an irrationality which this is not the case. Golden Dawn is a left wing Fascist party with UKIP is not. Sensible discussions on controls that this country can absorb, to ensure that migration does not bring disease or crime is not a phobia it is common sense. But I can see my left wing troll you are busy on this site.

        • Fritz123

          Well, what is rational? What is “the truth” ™? European societies are complicated and fragile, but compare Europes capabilities to absorb with those of any African country. IMHO the power of the UK has allways been based on its openness and you cant have globalisation as a one-way-street.

          There is a story of Fontane on peasants in Brandenburg throwing stones at tourists. This is what I call xenophobia. It is a clash of civilisations. And I even have some sympathies for the poor stupid guy who had a clash with a student from Egypt. Arogant students are never nice. But such things are a part of life.

        • Leon Wolfeson

          Most disease is from tourists and business visitors, the number of border movements is the significant factor.

          So, you of course support banning those.

          • mmac1968

            Any sensible country has border controls and that involves disease prevention. Disease prevention involves screening of people based on risk, most noticeably looking at the diseases prevalent in their countries of embarkation. There is also nothing wrong with sensible controls preventing criminals, Jihadists or hate preachers disrupting society. The USA, Saudi and many other countries have checks and balances to protect their societies, why should we not do the same? So please throw as much verbal muck as you wish, as that is the left wing way in shutting don debate. There are 5.5 billion people living in countries with standards far below that set by Europe, so at what point in your pragmatic book of wonders should Europe or the UK set limits. And yes it is a one way street, I do not see Asia or Arabic countries allowing the free flow of people, and in their laws you have not the rights of the indigenous born citizens. Nor will they allow their state religions or customs to be usurped, or is it only white nations in your book that must be ashamed.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            You ignored what I said, of course.

            As you scream PC abuse at the left. As you try and make us worse off, I know, so terrible the 99% still have something…of course you have a one-way street out the country for your cash.

            If you’re ashamed of yourself, that’s your problem. It’s your book, your ideology, your insistence on putting people as better and worse than each other based on how you categorise them, rather than considering individuals as people.

          • mmac1968

            That is it isn’t it. I do take people as I find them and as such have huge admiration for honest hard working people. At the same time there are those who are not. As such there are none so blind as those who refuse to see. If you believe that all migrants be taken at face value then it is you who are deluded. Do you consider Indonesians and Japanese scum because they are proud of their mono cultures. I am married to a non white non European and I moved away 25 years ago. I have happily adopted their culture, there traditions, their practices and their norms. I have never once demanded they change for me. I believe in hard work, family and above all the truth. I have no time for lies cheats or criminals and their lot was decided by themselves.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            The Japanese have struggled economically massively, in good part because of their inflexible culture.

            And Indonesia? Er… monoculture…?

            Ethnic groups: Javanese 40.1%, Sundanese 15.5%, Malay 3.7%, Batak 3.6%, Madurese 3%, Betawi 2.9%, Minangkabau 2.7%, Buginese 2.7%, Bantenese 2%, Banjarese 1.7%, Balinese 1.7%, Acehnese 1.4%, Dayak 1.4%, Sasak 1.3%, Chinese 1.2%, other 15% (2010 est.)

            So. (PS, no, people are people, not scum…)

          • mmac1968

            The Indonesians are the same as every other country. There is not a country that is not made of tribes. It is these people’s be it Welsh, Cornish, Picks, Celts etc that make Nation states. What binds them is their nationality, their shared history, their struggles and their language. There are 128 dialects in Indonesia but they are cemented together by a shared vision of their nation and a common language in Behasa. They consider themselves Indonesian. The left love to highlight the differences and then wonder why society fragments because you refuse to acknowledge that one law and one nation should supercedes the differences. A nation can not exist divided.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            “There is not a country that is not made of tribes.”

            North Korea. But I take your point there.

            Indonesia is a melting pot of different people’s. So is Iran. And America. There are countries like it all over the world – and they all have a common language too, yes. The fragmentation actually seen is in countries like France, where the state forces communities apart. The right are trying to drive us down that way.

            …And tell the Tories that with the damage they’re doing to the Union!

          • mmac1968

            Why did the country vote Tory? Labours admittance of an open door policy to rub the little Britons nose in diversity and a letter to the Chancellor that there is no money left is a childish tantrum from an infantile ideology. I lived through the 70s and saw the ruin Labour bought then. Labour nor the left should be left in charge of a piggy bank. Communism and Socialism ignores ones human nature to succeed based on our own merit. The left believes it knows best in all aspects of family life and deliberately ignores social responsibility and or outcomes.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Labour’s ineffective arguments were one reason they lost. And the “no money left” was a joke.

            And I see, you want to ban massive amounts of people from controlling their own money…you have a go at two ideologies which are vanishingly rare in the UK (and of I’m a member of neither) – we do have quite a few social democrats, though.

            In fact, we’re not very meritocratic at all in the UK, social mobility has and is dropping like a stone. And yet you prop that system up…ignoring the outcomes. “Responsibility” to your higher profit, more like. Use workfare?

          • mmac1968

            That is you my friend. Grammar schools ignored back ground or wealth but rewarded pupils on attainment and merit and is thus ignored on ideological grounds by the left. Private schools cost in general less than state and yet their outcomes far exceed those of the state. Gove has tried to reign in the Blob which believes in it’s own brilliance whilst ignoring it’s actual results. Meanwhile our no questions asked welfare states saps people of the drive to succeed. Ever wondered why Indians, Chinese, Japanese or East Europeans achieve such high standards of education or is it pure luck?. I know many and they would all make excellent contributions to the fabric of our society and yet they themselves are disgusted at a responsibilty free welfare state or our poor educational results and our childrens disrespect. Teaching children that their outcome is always someone else’s fault is madness. The private sector and Inovation creates jobs not the other way around.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Yes yes, I must be what you demand. Except, you know, the actual evidence about streaming.

            As you make wild claims about private schools, right. As Gove fights non-memorisation education, while ignoring actual results. As you ignore the fact that not being able to have secure food and shelter saps people – physically.

            Keep lashing out at out welfare state, which is the most conditional in the west – evidently, incomes are too high and there’s too much social mobility for you. Keep blaming anything but the government’s political tight control of teaching…as you ignore, call “madness”, the simple facts of capitalism.

          • mmac1968

            Sorry show me the utopian non capitalist society of which you believe we should aspire to. Tell me why there should never be a limit to welfare and why people should not take responsibility for their own actions. Explain to me the sheer luck to which many students of poor countries attain far better educational results than our own. It is your own ideological theory which stops you from questioning real world results. Like most Communists you believe that failures was caused by incorrect application of theory and never the results. Explain to me why the electorate are wrong in their choice to vote Conservative.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            I’d quite happily settle for synthesising parts of the Nordic economic model onto Britain and seeing where that got us. I’m practical and gradualist.

            As you talk about ever lower welfare, and blaming the poor for being poor. As you ignore the ongoing problem we have of governments micromanaging schools…

            You lash out blindly, seeing me as a communist. When, of course, I’m not – you’re just being a PC bigot and refusing to question your own assumptions. And then you make another mistake – I’m just for changing to a more reprisentive voting system.

          • Gerhardt Kippets

            Ever wondered why Indians, Chinese, Japanese or East Europeans achieve such high standards of education or is it pure luck?

            You surely aren’t arguing that *all* members of those nationalities achieve high standards of education? We only ever meet or hear about the high achievers, the people who did well – we never meet the hordes of the poor and stupid which I can assure you India, China, and Eastern Europe are full of.

          • mohdanga

            “The fragmentation actually seen is in countries like France, where the state forces communities apart. ” You must be referring to the poor Muslims that emigrate there, partition themselves off in the 751 no-go zones, torch cars, commit terrorist acts, attack Jews and infidels, and expect the host country to change to their liking. As opposed to, say, the UK, where Muslim immigration has worked wonders taking over places like Birmingham, Tower Hamlets, Bradford, etc. It’s all so enrichingly vibrant.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Keep blaming people for state policy.

            As you whine because YOU are not welcome in areas where you’ve been a rude ***.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            So you’re in denial over the Japanese economy’s stagnation? I see.

            We’re in trouble because of entirely domestic slash and burn “austerity” economics.

          • jonathan

            “Austerity” was the political ideology implemented in soviet wussher…..relentless continuous soul sapping austerity, where you werent even free to go on vacation. And initiative and enterprise was seen as a cultural abberation that deserved to be eliminated at all costs.

            We are in trouble because 3 post war generations now have been taught that the state is compelled to support you, and that its your entitlement no matter what.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            No, that was Communism, something else entirely.

            You keep yelling at the concept of society, though.

          • mohdanga

            “The Japanese have struggled economically massively, in good part because of their inflexible culture.” Evidence please.
            Would that be the same ‘inflexible culture’ that made them the manufacturing powerhouse from the 1960s through to the 1990s? But I suppose throwing in a few million layabout blacks from the sub Sahara would help them turn things around.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Let’s see… “Japan economic stagnation”

          • mohdanga

            So criticizing lazy blacks is now eugenics, is it? You are beyond idiotic.
            Japan had a property bubble that crashed, banks that overlent and consumption that declined and they have yet to recover. While their birthrate has declined their standard of living will not be helped by importing millions of non-working 3rd world enrichers who come seeking free handouts while doing nothing to improve Japan’s prospects. Try harder.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Your eugenics and blanket accusations…

          Xenophobia is the dislike of foreigners and existed long before the Labour party was formed.

      • Why would anyone care if it was labeled xenophobic or racist: meaning a person who favors their race and who understands the many differences between races. You can call me either or both. I find it funny because you sound like a parrot for the Communists Jews and their useful idiot Shabez Liberal goy who through twisting & inventing new definitions of established terms trying to deceive & confuse those unfamiliar with their subversive tactics. Example: Gentile is a latin word (not within Greek nor Hebrew manuscripts nor found within either language) meaning a non-Roman but deceitfully pass it off pretending it means a non-parasitic, turkish -bolshevik – mongolian mongrelized jew whose father is the devil.

        • Fritz123

          I fully agree as far as language is concerned and this is the only reason for me to prefer xenophobia over racism because xenophobia is less than racism. There is something that we dont like sometimes and it has more to do with different ways of living than with the genes. At least I can get very aggressiv if some “Paki” spits on the trottoir. A European city is not a village in India.

        • Leon Wolfeson

          So you put down other “races” (Humans), and you favour yourself and people just like you, politically.

          As you attack people based on race, faith, belief…as you make up nonsense about words…as you spout off Stormfront-style propaganda about Jews…

      • Gerhardt Kippets

        What? Xenophobia and a mistrust of other races are very British attributes indeed.

        • Fritz123

          Would the UK ever have been important without them? IMHO it was this openness was the foundation of its strengh for centuries. You cant grow without new ideas and new people.

          The far right are not Britain.

          Bigotry is a learned characteristic.

          (The “stranger” reaction is outside immediate friends/family, maximum a village…)

      • Brogan75

        I prefer to be branded with useless words, than denying (like our politicians and all lefties) that romanians, albanians, africans, are a plague. And it’s been since long time now. denying what is in front of your eyes is more criminal than saying something vaguely racist or xenophobic.

    • Leon Wolfeson

      No, for example in other EU countries you can get healthcare by paying into the same as other person living there. The UK charges some people, but does not provide the cover, requiring them to have private insurance as well!

      And then you talk about the “sense” of banning people from the NHS, jobs and education on the basis of their acceptability to you as a UKIP party member. Which is, of course, going to be a distinct subset even of British citizens.

        Israel is a good example of immigration control based on immigrants ethnicity and culture. I don’t thing it will accept crowds of Romanian gypsies.

        • Leon Wolfeson

          I’m sure you don’t think a lot.

          In fact, over half the European countries have some form of law of return. It’s not remotely unusual.

          • sidor

            What return? Is there much emigration from Israel?

          • Leon Wolfeson

            A law of return – recognising historical ties, and granting citizenship on that basis. This is not tied to emigration, explicitly – for example, not that many of the hundreds of Sephardi Jews recently granted passports by Portugal (and a handful from Spain) have actually moved to the EU, let alone Portugal.

            “Is there much emigration from Israel?”

            Their emigration rate is rather low, but not exceptionally so, for a first world country.

          • sidor

            Who can have “historical ties” with the country that have been in existence for less than 70 years? Do you actually mean the right of the Jews (ethnically defined in whatever way) to come to a certain Middle East territory as described in the Bible? What about the right of the Palestinians to return? I am not arguing for either of these (or against), just curious how you can legally formulate it in accordance with the general principles that you are trying to impose on Britain.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            I’m not trying to “impose” on Britain. You’re the one objecting to current British law here!

            Laws voluntarily passed by countries granting “return” to non-citizens are completely separate to issues surrounding migration, land rights and that sort of return, where international law is quite clear that you must offer compensation (as offered) or allow return.

            Medinat Yisrael, the State of Israel, is of course not the same thing at all as the old religious concept of Eretz Yisrael.

          • sidor

            So, technically you don’t disagree that Israel is using immigration rules based on ethnic and religious discrimination. Why do you think that similar rules, in whatever form, would be bad for Britain?

          • Leon Wolfeson

            So, you make up what I said. When I was not talking about that at all.

            About what I actually said – Israel has a law of return – would I object if Britain had a law allowing people of British ancestry to get a UK passport? No, no, I would not. As I said, most EU nations have one.

          • sidor

            Would you object if Britain will refuse to allow anyone without “British ancestry” to get in, following the immigration policy of Israel?

            And, to establish full affinity with the Israeli policy, which ancestry do you suggest to regard as British? Pre-Roman keltic? Anglo-saxon? Norman?

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Israel’s policy isn’t that, of course.

            Laws of Return are *on top* of normal immigration.

          • sidor

            Please tell us about “normal immigration” to Israel, in numbers.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Every other nation with a right of return, which is a lot of countries, has it as a very small fraction of their immigration. It’s not the example you’re looking for, it’s very unusual in that respect.

            No numbers in your posts. Shall we assume no immigration?

          • Leon Wolfeson

            No reading in your world. You assume what you like, of course. As you always do – so obviously you’ve already dedicated your numbers, and I wouldn’t dare disturb them with facts.

            Meanwhile, of course, Israel’s Law of Return is not only for Jews. It’s for anyone with a Jewish grandparent.

            Liar. Anyone whose maternal grandmother was Jewish is a Jew according to Jewish law (and Israeli immigration law), and they’re the only ones given that preference. Not “anyone with a Jewish grandparent” Non Jewish immigrants in Israel are treated like subhuman animals. Gentile guest workers are even forced to sign papers pledging that they won’t have sex with Israeli women during their stay.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            You’re the liar here. The Law of Return is not only for Jews, of course, and works – deliberately – on the same criteria as Hitler set for someone being a Jew.

            You are the one here seeing suhumans. As you talk about an unproven accusation made against one company – and as the Israeli police said, if it was true it would be against contract law and unenforceable.

            But facts.

            re law of return and Israel.
            What about the large number of arabs , (semites all) and their descendents who were booted out of their villages in 1947/48 ?
            Can they go back ?

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Ah, the old attempt to minimise anti-Semitism.
            As you ignore international law on that, of course.

            But you’d rather oppose peace than risk a two-state solution.

          • right1_left1

            Ah the common common method of evading the point.
            Introduce a red herring. or even two red herrings.
            By DEFINITION criticism of Israel is anti semitic.

            Law and justice are slippery concepts.
            That which is legal may not be just and that which is just may not be legal.

            In a lot of cases many will disagree which applies where!!
            Force is then usually used to resolve the situation

            At least to the victor’s satisfaction.

            Arabs lived in the region now known as Israel long before Islam was dreamed up .
            It follows the unilateral declaration of a nation state in the region , prepared for with terrorisma and backed by force to this day, is unjust and should be illegal..

            What is you opinion on international law and the settlements on the west bank ?
            What is the scope of international law anyway ?

          • right1_left1

            I think Ben Gurion should have called an election with EVERYBODY having a vote, not just the indigenous Jews and from Soviet Union, possibly Poland and even Brooklyn for all i know, to see whether region wide popular support was available for the creation of the nation state Israel.

            That would have been just.
            Legality would follow .

          • Leon Wolfeson

            No, YOUR excuses are, however. Of course. As you try and lube up law and justice.

            As you ignore the history of the region.

            God told me that he never gave the region to the Jews He wanted to parcel it evenly.
            The Jews nipped in and helped themselves.

          • Frankenstone2

            Jews do not come in many colors, other than different shades of white. They have a Semitic base, mixed with other Caucasoid types over the centuries.
            Black Jews are a contradiction in terms and a joke.

            So is a Jew like Leon who claims to wear two hats on one head: he is a Jew, member of a distinct people,the “Chosen Ones”, and a British, a distinctly Nordic nation’
            Leon are you a Chosen or a goy?

          • Leon Wolfeson

            So, you deny many Jews exist. That they’re a contraction and a joke.
            Your Anti-Semitism is just that.

            You show no notion of what Judaism is, as you scream that I must be like you, not British.
            (And lol Nordic)

          • Frankenstone2

            Your mastery of the English language is far from perfect.
            When did you infiltrate Britain?

            You sure are not Gilad Atzmon, a true ex-Jew, an honest man, for whom I have the highest regard.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            I speak it, unlike you.
            And oh right, being British is an “infiltration”. I see.

            As you claim to have killed Gilad Atzmon. As that’s how Jews become ex-Jews.

          • Frankenstone2

            “Being British” and being a Jew are mutually exclusive, for any sane person anyway.

            British do not celebrate mythical events from the Middle East, from thousands of years ago, like Purim, Passover, Exodus and so on.
            Only Middle Eatern infiltrators do that.
            The British are Aryans of Germanic and Celtic origins, not Semitic from the Middle East.

            Run a DNA test on yourself. See how far outside of the British locus you are, kosher pal..

            You belong in Israel. In the IDF they may just turn you into a man, with some luck.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Ah, so you are moaning about insanity as well as your Anti-Semitism.

            As you ignore Christianity. Of course.

            As you try and use DNA to determine who’s acceptable to you. As you want to purge my community. As you talk about the IDF, which routinely fights terrorists with your kind of views.

          • Frankenstone2

            I ignored Christianity, because it had no relevance to the subject matter, which is your pathetic attempt to pass as British.
            Speaking about Christianity, this morning I told a friend that Christianity is a brain cancer and that Adolf Hitler was absolutely right when he condemned it as another form of the Jewish disease of Bolshevism. http://www.amazon.com/Bolshevism-Moses-Lenin-dialogue-between/dp/0937944130

            Of course, Hitler was not the first one to draw this conclusion, Friedrich Nietzsche’s “Anti-Christ” was well received years before.

            As an American who spent many years in occupied Germany in the 3rd Armored Division, I can read and understand a lot of German.
            In the latest online issue of the Junge Freiheit they have an article about a German Bishop who who basically calls on Germany to self-destruct in the name of this pathological, suicidal altruism.

            This kind of mental illness is logical under the National Masochist dictatorship that was put into power in defeated Germany.

            Also the claim of the divinity of the renegade Jew called Yeshua is laughable on its face.
            In that regard the Jews and Muslims are right.

            I repeat, go join the IDF, armchair warrior, put some skin in the game for Eretz Israel…….you may even become a man……

          • Leon Wolfeson

            So you scream some British people are not British, British-hater. I see. As you talk about your Hero. And also hate Christians (and don’t think they’re British either, by your logic).

            So… you’re a foreigner here who should leave if you hate us so much. As of course, nihilist, you condemn any form of altruism. As you spout nonsense about Mao. As you repeat the IDF needs me to protect Israel against your type of Jihadi.

          • Frankenstone2

            Your mindless rants make it obvious by now that you are a psychotic Jew. The asylums are full of your type.
            It has a genetic basis.

            Why does your deity have to be so bloodthirsty? The death penalty for adultery or homosexual acts etc are in your holy text. Is it not time to grow up?

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Ah yes, for you any form of tolerance is “random pro-religious diatribe”. And I’m sorry you feel the need to follow the Faith of a washed up ex-scientist, whose fading days are concerned with ranting against many in society.

            Why do you feel your faith is the correct one, and the others false? Why is your faith so intolerant and exclusionary? Why do you feel that all other paths leave people children?

            The reality, of course, is that Jews have executed far less people than anti-religious fanatics over the last, well, millennium.

          • Keir Softie

            “Jews have executed far less people than anti-religious fanatics”

            Try telling that to the parents of a child horribly maimed by Israeli phosphor bombs dropped on the Gaza concentration camp.

            Ah, your excuses for Hamas continue, no self-defence for Jews in your world, etc.

          • Paul Willeaux

            The kill ratio of Israelis to Palestinians in these conflicts are always 100 to 1 (or higher) in favor of the Israelis. 2-3 Israelis get killed by makeshift rockets, and then 200+ Palestinians (mostly civilians, naturally) are killed in “self defense.” No one but fat Americans in the “Bible Belt” are fooled by your “self defense” argument.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            So because Jews defend themselves, expensively….they’re magically in the wrong.
            And Hamas fighters are civlians.

            Its called do unto others as they do to you. In this case we’d copy Saudi laws and of banning Christianity as they do, we’d ban Islam, require Muslims to leave the UK, renounce Islam or pay Jizya. Seems quite reasonable to me and in keeping with the Religion of Peace !

      Sensible control on immigration implies that no unqualified labour should be imported, both in the form of “asylum seekers” or otherwise, from any country including EU. There is no sense in having this immigration as long as there is a non-zero unemployment. The immigration rate of this kind of immigrants should actually be negative. This is true for any country. Japan is a good example of a successful economy build upon its own labour resources.

      • Suzy61

        In a recent survey Japan was the most tolerant country towards immigration.

        Japan is also the country who admits the least number of immigrants.

        Now, when do you think our politicians might grasp this?

        • sidor

          Your question, in a rational form, can be translated as follows: when is Britain going to have politicians motivated by the economical interests of the country rather than by the interests of corrupt business which profits on cheap immigrant labour at the expense of the rest of the population? The answer is obvious: as soon as the citizens decide that they want to have a decent government.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            We need their economic stagnation, and their demographic problems, and their 98%+ conviction rate, and…

            I get you think that your very rich are “the country”, as you chant the old disprove myths about immigration and wages (as the studies show, it only affects other recent migrants), as you ignore the benefit of allowing trade… as you insult most -people here…if you hate Britain so much, go somewhere which better suits your views. Like home.

            Rather than trying to make us a stagnant economy like Japan’s. Except it’d be far worse – we don’t have their closed system of buying bonds, and would end up in an untenable situation very rapidly.

      Agree with some of your points but no one deserves anything via birth. Everyone should work and pay for their needs. This granted free everything leads us day by day to a total destruction.
      And yeah UKIP is not a fascist and racist party. Nowadays it is fashionable to intimidate your opponents by labelling them as nazi or racist whilst the attacker is actually the one who is fascist!!

      • mmac1968

        I agree, I do not mean only by birth (bad use of the point i was trying to make). I believe in a quota asylum system as well as a quota skilled migration system. Also apply sensible rules like expelling non UK residents who commit serious crimes. Much the same as I would limit welfare over time if people refuse to work. In Greece people can not claim welfare if they refuse to work during the tourist season. Again people who can not work due to ill health or for incapacity reasons would be exempt. But the bloody left portray anyone who tries to instill responsibilty as criminally insane. It makes you wonder.

        • ArashUK

          agreed. the problem is mainly due to asylum seekers who have access to all benefit from the very first day, dont work, dont contribute and they are just a huge burden on society. And funny point is that if you talk to them most of them hate this country, keep complaining but never want to come back to their homeland.

          And most importantly, almost none of them has any issue in their countries.

          The asylum system in thin country is broken and failed. Government should learn more from Australia. They are dealing with these abusers in a much more professional way.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Asylum seekers are not legally allowed to work.

            You have no idea about the law, as you magically divine why they’re here…oh wait, no, you don’t, you just don’t care about the law.

          • ArashUK

            i am really aware of the system, they have access to benefits and all other entitlements that many Britons does not have. Even if they are not allowed to work they have access to all benefit from the very first day. I myself an immigrant and my biggest problems since the day one have been this cheaters and their supporters. Dont worry this government will soon grant them full right of work.

            And you care about the law! so try to understand when someone is in France he is not in danger! and asylum (benefit) seekers are the most abusers. Again, the likes of you are supporting them based on no reason. And even if they are in danger in their country, I am the one who should be blamed? I am the reason? Then why should I pay? You are caring? Ok give them as much as you want.

            And read my post carefully, i said THEY DONT WORK. they dont need to work as we are working for them! read more carefully and you can get more information on immigration system from UKVI website

            No, they have access to a specific very low paying benefit, which is only for Asylum seekers…as it’s so low. You ignore the fact that people need some money to eat on, etc.

            As you try, foreigner, to pull up the ladder and you have a problem with Asylum seekers – who i.e. Farrage supports, whining about “cheaters” really shows your issue – especially since you’re the one who is whining in another post about paying tax!

          • ArashUK

            oh I am sorry that they are paid too low. But no one invited them and I dont want to even pay a penny to them. I am not working hard to give them a decent living. Your mindset is full of nonsense that want to force others to pay for others living. You are shockingly a looter comrade

            You can pay as much as you want. Again, you cannot force me in a free society to pay for anyone else especially some cheaters and abusers.

            They can come back to their countries and eat! I dont owe them food or anything. You can pay them.

            Yes I have issue with them as they are cheaters and have more issue with looters like you who want to steal from the others and have issue about tax as it is a legalized thefts. You can pay as much as you want to your beloved corrupted state. I know better how to spend my money comrade.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Obviously lying now won’t help. “Sorry”, which you then contradict in a tirade. As you rage against people like Mr. Farrage.

            And I know, you don’t work, right. As you make up more PC nonsense about me, as you demand to free-load of the back of the taxpayer. And as you demand you not pay tax – foreign criminals like you should on being deported for tax offences!

            As you whine, looter, about taxpayers like me, as you attack Britain, which you’re a parasite on.

          • ArashUK

            hahaha just nonsense comrade. You really dont have anything to say just personal attack and intimidation. You dont have any reason as you rejected it. You want to force others and try to hide behind meaningless words. Sorry for you. I am wasting too much time.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Keep yelling at the non-existent comrade. As you confuse your and my posts.

            As you go straight for your very controlled society, Vulgar Libertarian, as you demand you should not have to pay tax.

            Your stereotyping and PC bigotry define your world, it seems.

          • ArashUK

            oh i got into your mind. You are one of the funniest comrades as you are stressing on A is not A and is actually a B or C…

            It is the last reply as I dont want to give you credit and already replied to all of your nonsense but I summarize them here in case you want to think (i doubt it):
            -you are supporting big state and taxes. I dont like taxes as tax in a free society is a theft by government. then you call me collectivist and you are not a comrade!
            -I am saying anyone is free to pay, help, donate to anything he wants, there is no force, men are free to spend their hard working money but I am a collectivist!!!
            -you want to force others to pay for poor migrants’ food and shelter but dont like their English. It is ok to force others to pay for these cheaters as we all owe them a decent living. But you are not a comrade and again I am a collectivist.
            -You dont know the immigration rules please go to http://www.gov.uk/ukvi. It is ok for you that a British citizen should have resided for at least 3 years in this country to pay home tuition fee but a refugee is eligible from the day one. And you are a proud british. very funny.
            -you dont believe in individual rights, property right and free man, you are fan of society. but it is me who is a collectivist!!

            I am telling it for your own sake. you are so funny and just make fool of yourself as you are a complete contradiction.

            Try to think more. I am not going to reply again as you should have got what you needed. Have a nice weekend comrade.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            No, you’re stereotyping me, based on your imagination. As you continue to use the PC bigotry against the Comrade I am not.

            (If you could actually read minds, you’d be too busy making billions to post here)

            * No, I’m for a small state. But you are too busy labelling me to know that. As you whine about paying tax, and as you ignore what say in favour of your PC bigotry. Small is not the same as non-existent, of course, or your Vulgar Liberarian’s big state which exists to protect your capitalism.
            * You’re talking about freeloading off the British. As you oppose society.
            * The discussion was about asylum seekers, not migrants.
            * You try and smear me with your views.

            As you, without understanding my views, rant away at me, in approved PC collectivist style.

          • ArashUK

            already replied. please try to read again, also history of your previous comments are available.

            I am sorry that I have to write this as I said I am not going to reply you. but from this one and previous comments it is clear that you even dont know what is the capitalism and think that a big state is needed to protect it!!!

            You dont know immigration rules, capitalism, libertarianism, supporting state, tax, society (a vague concept), opposing individualism and are sad of being called comrade??? I told you, Stalin was less collectivist than you. Y=

            Try to read more as you have issues in basic definitions comrade and dont be ashamed of being called what you really are.

            It is really the last one as I already replied. Refer to my previous posts and try to think. Please, for one second.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Sorry? That you lied?

            As you post what is very poor English.

            From what I think I can decipher…of course your Capitalism needs state protection – indeed, Capitalism absolutely requires a big state. Otherwise the Free market would push Capitalism aside!

          • ArashUK

            already replied. yes my English is very poor but at least it has reason. but you were supporting paying more to cheater seekers?? or in your view they are good as far as they are shut up?
            You really know that making fool of yourself with these comments?

            My english is good enough to show how pathetic your ideas are.

            About capitalism, sorry I am not here to teach you economy comrade.refer to previous comments. You think free market is something different from capitalism. Wooow. you are shockingly funny. Try to learn comrade, learn, it is not rocket science.

            I swear it was the last. You are the funniest one I’ve ever seen. I am not giving you any more credit.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            You evidently have major problems comprehending even the most basic English, as you once more per your own post lie…

            As you rant on about things I never said. As you misunderstand “Asylum Seeker” as “cheater seekers”, and ignore what I said about them…as you express an extremist view well to the right of i.e. Mr. Farrage.

            And you reinforce your commitment to big-state capitalism, right. As you push capitalist dogma about the free market, as you ignore the fact that you’d not give credit anyway – that would require an institution to back it, and that can’t be done in your theoretical utopia (as opposed to your other views), as the only guarantee is naked force, and Bankers won’t work in those environments.

          • ArashUK

            ok comrade. already replied. good night and dont ruin your weekend 😉

          • Leon Wolfeson

            So you keep ranting at your invisible “comrade”, the image your PC bigotry has created in your mind. As you ignore what I’ve said for your self-addressed rants.

            And I don’t have your long weekend being afraid of society and tax, no.

            PS, break your oaths (“I swear it was the last”) often? Clearly there’s a reason you’re afraid of being held to account by the state!

          • ArashUK

            ok comrade. you said you are a comrade 100 times. dont ruin your weekend 🙂

          • Leon Wolfeson

            So you’re still ranting away at the comrade entirely in your mind, and you’re showing you’re a liar.

            No wonder you’re so afraid of a society which would hold you to account for that.

          • ArashUK

            oh poor pathetic comrade who even does want to accept his identity. He is so sad and poor and his main job is posting comments :)))) I said I wont reply to your nonsense as you feel satisfied by being replied, sorry if I did not explain carefully.

            And the last couple of posts including this are just to mock you comrade. they are not actually a reply as you dont deserve a reply. You dont know anything, pretend to know everything and when you dont have anything to say just attack personal matters, a perfect communist instead that they are at least honest and be proud but you, you are the new version. I told you 🙂

            I am sorry that post this one as it seem I got badly into your paradoxic mind and I did not want to ruin your holiday.

            You know comrade in DISQUS all comments can be seen and even a kid can find out from your recent posts that you are a communist statist collectivist. You dont accept as you dont know what these word mean and by shouting that I am not a comrade you just make fool of yourself. Others can see these posts not yourself. I told you 🙂

            Anyway, I am on my way for a nice holiday. I recommend you to study and learn more about immigration rules (which includes Asylum rules and refugees) you can start by http://www.gov.uk/ukvi
            then try to read books such as economy for dummies to learn about what is capitaism, socialism, welfare state, statism, principle of free market
            learn more about history, Thatcher, Blair, Adam Smith, etc.
            learn what is reason, logic, proper debate, etc.

            I am sorry that I break my commitments and seems unaccountable by your beloved corrupted government. But in my view helping a stressed troll comrade is more important.

            Have fun

            As a self professed Jew you are and will always be a foreigner in Britain and everywhere else, except Israel.

            This is reflected by your reflexive pro-immigration stance.

            You Jews are foreign infiltrators of all nations and now your attack on the very existence of Western nations is coming to fruition.

          • Frankenstone2

            You will never be British any more than Jamaican Negroes ever will be.
            You are a walking oxymoron, as Diaspora Jews all are.
            Sorry, kosher pal, make Aliyah , go home to Israel where you belong.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            You reject the British, as you spout off hate.
            As you show how sorry you are, as you have a rant at someone who, unlike you, is loyal to Britain.

        • Leon Wolfeson

          Ah. So the kids and normal elderly…right.

      • Leon Wolfeson

        Yea, those evil kids, those evil retired people, those evil badly disabled…how dare there be housewives…

        As you whine that the poor being alive is destruction, destruction!

        You then use the standard canard of the far right, blaming others for your views…

        • ArashUK

          oh I am so sorry that I made you sad comrade. If you want, you can give all of your beloved money to all those disadvantaged but I dont owe them a living. I was born in a palace and I’ve tried so hard in my life so they should do the same.
          It is up to you to help anyone you want, but when you want to force others to help, it is you who are a fascist hidden behind meaningless words and propagandas.
          I never called them evil, you are the evil who abuse them for your fraudulent cause.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            There you go, looking for the invisible comrade.

            As you whine about paying tax, unsurprisingly. As you attack the state and society.
            And of course you see the poor being alive as “abuse”, “fraud” and “evil”…you really do caricature yourself.

          • ArashUK

            you know funny point is what? is that you comrades are all same. Dont have anything to say, dont have any reason just nonsense.

            I am proud of attacking the state as the reason for most problem. If you are a slave want to be controlled by state, pay tax by gun to fund things you dont like and approve, there you go. I am a libertarian free man that have will and reason to choose.

            And again try to read more carefully. Other comrades at least fluent in English. I said YOU ARE the fraud. You are a collectivist looter who want to impose your ideals on the others and steal their money in the name of glorious public and state.

            There is no such thing as society, there are individuals.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            So.

            You launch another funny-creepy rant.
            You maunder on about “comrades” – you’re both incorrect and politically correct.
            You demand there be no other views.
            You demand that only your views be “reason”

            Of course you are proud of your hates, as you make up nonsense about slavery.
            You’re a Vulgar Libertarian, as you spout off bad English, as you yell at someone I am not, since I’m no kind of socialist or communist, with accusations of crimes. Baselessness, so that’s just good statist attempting to get the state to remove other views for you (and proves you’re no Libertarian!)

            You’re the PC collectivist here, sterotyping people. As you whine over and over about paying tax.
            Your opposition to society and British values…if you hate Britain so much, go home!

          • ArashUK

            oh sorry i told you i am an immigrant and so my english is not native but i thought you are supporting poor migrants and want to feed them or you support just the ones who beg you. my english is as it is but at least i have reason.

            I did not accuse you and did not label you. I called you what you are. you modern comrades are so pathetic that even cannot accept your reality. At least reds in 1970 were more honest.

            You want to steal others money in the name of tax, force others to help the ones you like, supporting big state and oppose individual freedom and then say no no no I am not a collectivist. Pitty comrade.

            oh I should go home because I showed your fraud and you dont have anything to say, but those cheater seekers should stay as they are begging you and you are happy? I am here comrade and dont go anywhere. And again there is no such thing as society.

            You know who said that? One of the biggest britons in history or in your view, Thatcher was not British?

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Migrants? This was about asylum seekers.

            Your excuses for your poor English, as you label and ranting accuse, as you insist on trying to find someone other than me, as I’m nobody’s “Comrade”. As you demand your “reality”, your views, be the only acceptable ones.

            As you last out at state and society, as you whine about the poor getting some help… as you continue your PC stereotyping and collectivism.

            No, you should leave the country you hate because you are attacking it, and making unfounded accusations of criminal behavior, as you fight society and try and freeload…

            Thatcher…ah yes, right. A stateist. Quite unlike you. She said something quite different to you – she wasn’t advocating tax evasion!

    We are talking about the party that copied the swastika and Greekified it, right? They’ve even got a laurel wreath around it, like they’ve got similar notions about recapturing the glory of the Roman Empire.

  • DaveCrouch

    I am amazed by the stupidity of the Greek voters; after years of austerity the Greek economy was beginning to show some improvement. At the end of 2014 a primary budget surplus of 1% was achieved and the economy appeared to be on the up. This wasn’t achieved without pain, unemployment was at 25% generally and among the under 25s was about 50%. This wasn’t a surprise; successive governments had stuffed the civil service and the government controlled utilities with their friends and relations and as a condition of the loans from the ECB and the IMF these entities had to be slimmed down. Other reforms were, after much kicking and screaming, beginning to be implemented; none of them were popular but when you have a budget deficit of 12% and no way of devaluing your currency so that you can ‘inflate’ your debts away, as they had done when they had the Drachma, the options are limited.
    When the last general election was called at the end of 2014, SYRIZA produced a manifesto which promised that if elected they would end the austerity program, rehire all the workers who had been sacked and roll back all the reforms that had been implemented on pensions and the like. They would also get rid of the hated ‘Troika’, the combination of the European Commission, the ECB and the IMF. They wouldn’t accept any more loans as they felt that these were unnecessary, (and remember, at least three of the members of government are professors of economics).
    What was there not to like in that package, apart from the question; where’s the money going to come from.
    Anyway, long story short, Greece will now require a loan of at least 100 Billion Euros this year, not the 86 Billion widely touted by the EU. The economy has gone further down the toilet and is projected to register a primary deficit of at least 4% this year although 7% will be closer to the mark. Unemployment is set to rise further as capital controls, put in place due to the inept handing of the discussions with the Troika, further destroy what little is left of Greek industry.
    Members of the SYRIZA government are fighting amongst themselves like cats in a sack so it is likely that a general election will be called in the autumn when I am sure SYRIZA will be re-elected to give the poor old Greeks some more of the same.

    • Leon Wolfeson

      The stupidity was the capitalists who decided to wreck Greece’s economy again, just as it was showing a primary surplus – cutting back on their return, and ending with the army threatening the government to force it to surrender.

      You’re blaming SYRIZA for the actions of the people who thought getting less was a good idea. Your Troika are inept.

  • patrickirish

    • Epleguy

      I’m a not an English native speaker and I understood this just fine.

  • Greeks voted for Syriza, a Mickey Mouse leftist party, because all other parties are extremely corrupt. Greek political corruption uptrends very strongly. The omnibus bill is more than 100 pages long and won passage as a piece of cake. Buried on page 78 is language that gives retroactive immunity to thousands of workers in state-funded organizations that shields them from future corruption prosecutions. That change is among a flurry of new immunity provisions, often slipped into complex or unrelated bills. We see law change after law change, often inconsistent, incoherent, and fragmentary, a trend protecting the ever increasing political corruption. What you see is the creation of mechanisms for immunity and amnesty for their own people.

    Putting Greece on a sound footing is cleaning out the Augean Stables. Graecokleptocrats have made it illegal to record political corruption! People who present evidence of political corruption go to prison, not the corrupt! This is shooting the messenger, pure and simple. The huge Greek debt was created by Pasok and New Democracy, two very dangerous mafias masquerading as political parties.

    Years of rampant corruption helped drive Greece to the brink of bankruptcy. We see quiet efforts to shut down corruption investigations and prevent the clawing back of ill-gotten gains of two hundred billion euros. The Grand Brothel of Kleptocracy on Syntagma Square passed new laws legitimizing the illegal spending of state funds. The judiciary spends money to investigate robberies of many billions of euros, only to have the laws give immunity retroactively!

    A law offers protections for officials who handle disbursements from a pension fund. Another protects officials who oversee school building expenses. Another prohibits prosecution of high-level officials who are working in the Health Ministry. Another law protects bankers who have issued fake loans to political parties. Officials involved in Greece’s efforts to privatize state assets receive special immunities, as are members of Greece’s new Financial Stability Board, which was created to regulate how recapitalization money was allocated to Greek banks.

    Immunities that have always existed are being manipulated for maximum effectiveness. Parliament, for instance, must approve any effort to investigate its members, and few such permissions are ever granted. Of hundreds of felony cases against ministers that were sent by prosecutors to Parliament since 2012, legislators voted to lift immunity only once. Under Greek law, after two legislative sessions, a minister can no longer be pursued for his previous actions. New immunities are making it more difficult to prosecute officials for corruption.

    Greek impunity law allows Greek ministers to get bribes!Graecokleptocrats have long been dubbed the untouchables. MPs cannot be touched, because they are protected by impunity, engraved in the ridiculous constitution of Greece! MPs have received bribes and kickbacks amounting to two hundred billion euros since the end of dictatorship in 1974, and nobody can do anything about it. A seat in the parliament comes with a robbing license.

    Greece has all the right conditions for corruption: plenty of bureaucracy, kangaroo justice, laws with numerous loopholes, impunity of kleptocrats, and economic pressure. Regarding bribes and robbing the Greek Treasury, Premier Andreas Papandreou infamously advised Graecokleptocrats: We all agree, of course, that we are allowed to give ourselves a little present from time to time, but please don’t make it too large!

    Graecokleptocracy and the overflowing bureaucracy in Greece makes it very easy to embezzle Fourth Reich funds. Many professors and administrators at Panteion and other colleges, well connected to piggish Graecokleptocrats, were sentenced to long prison terms for embezzlement. A Greek court found they had misused many million euros in research funds. The guilty of Panteion include a rector, a vice-rector, and an accountant who bought a red Ferrari using research money. Money was embezzled from research budgets and spent on rugs, marble bathrooms, and furnishings for holiday apartments.

    Greece has received a quarter of trillion euros in Fourth Reich funds, but big parts of that went down the drain in economically useless or imaginary projects of Graecokleptocrats. You won’t find a study in Greece looking at where exactly the Fourth Reich billions are flowing to. You won’t get an overview of the total costs and the projects’ exact status of implementation.

    Olive oil cooperatives, well connected to Graecokleptocrats, report a higher production output to Brussels compared to what their actual figures are to receive more subsidies. Databases to document their demands are run by the cooperatives themselves and are easily manipulated.

    Licensure is a sign of slavery. All licenses of the kangaroo justice government of Greece should be abolished, including doctors, lawyers, and marriage. The kangaroo government of Greece licensure is an immoral exercise of force, an overly burdensome restraint on trade, a violation of the right to liberty, a mill of kickbacks. Government is a guarantor of liberty and is compatible with liberty only if its range is adequately restricted to the preservation of economic freedom.

    One of the many reasons why the kangaroo government licensure is incompatible with liberty, therefore, is because it is destructive to economic freedom. No other nation demands more licenses than the Cradle of Kleptocracy. Any Greek has the natural right to pursue any means of providing for his family, so long as in doing so he does not act fraudulently or otherwise violate the rights of others.

    The kangaroo government mandated license turns the market of the Cradle of Kleptocracy upside down. It prohibits every Greek from producing in a given industry except for those who are granted the privilege of doing so by the kangaroo government, especially those who provide huge bribes to kleptocrats. The kangaroo government, in such a scenario, absorbs all individual rights unto itself and then divvies up some of those rights in any number of ways.

    Under the licensing system of the kangaroo government, such as it exists today in the Cradle of Kleptocracy, if some Greek attempts to exercise his natural right to provide for himself without the kangaroo government’s nod of approval, which usually comes with bribes, that person goes to jail. Imprisonment for supporting oneself in an honest and non-fraudulent manner which does not infringe on the rights of others just doesn’t seem right.

    Preemptive protection is offensive in nature, and therefore, is itself a violation of natural rights. In a free society, it is only after fraud or another violation of rights takes place that the state has the right to intervene on behalf of the consumer. By means of the licensure power, the kangaroo government can permit a Greek to eat or it can condemn him to starve, unless he bribes kleptocrats. So long as the kangaroo government has the power to issue licenses to live in the Cradle of Kleptocracy, Greeks cannot claim to be free, and living without freedom is not much of a life.

    The root causes of Greece’s crisis are corruption, VAT, and the enormous regulatory burden that crushes the country’s economy. Foreign investors have long been put off by bribes, myriad licenses, bureaucracy, and lack of clear laws. There is a mistrust in entrepreneurship. Greek bureaucracy treats anyone trying to start a business as if he is guilty of something. Civil servants are throwing you into a labyrinth on purpose, in order to get bribes. The law gives them the latitude to delay you or punish you.

    One of the main obstacles to more investment is the legal jumble that dictates how Greek businesses work. Even Graecokleptocrats admit the lack of clear laws and the endless requests for opinions, studies, and permits are there to give work to unionized specialists. There are whole businesses and technical offices employing engineers and experts specifically for the purpose of licensing.

    Requests for bribes are not always explicit. Sometimes people quote you a price and sometimes they drop hints about the cost of things and how hard it is to get by. A civil servant might tell you that politicians come and go, but he’ll be here waiting for you!

    Avoiding the state is the best way to get ahead. To sidestep the maze of permits that torment many entrepreneurs, one should buy an existing business that has the licenses already in place. Graecokleptocrats create myriad stupid fuzzy laws that everybody ignores. Several interests prefer a fuzzy system they can manipulate, especially in building permits, which are a hub of corruption.

    Investors are bewildered by the way tax rates and rules constantly change. The unstable system makes business planning difficult. The tax code requires such complicated book-keeping that most companies find it impossible to follow. It also requires constant visits by tax inspectors, which open the way to corruption.

    EU might deteriorate to the miserable level of extremely corrupt Greece. Your government is your #1 enemy. Brutal police and kangaroo courts are tools to enslave you to your government. But badges and benches do not grant extra rights. It’s your duty as a citizen to become a popopaparazzo, recording misconduct of police, prosecutors, and politicians. Use your smartphone to unmask cops and kleptocrats.

    The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing. A glaring example is my persecution by the government of Greece, which grossly violates my civil rights.

    Martin Niemöller said: First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me!

    EU practices double standards on civil rights. It’s freakish for EU to interfere in the civil rights of foreigners, but condone the abuse of my civil rights, a citizen of EU! EU should get its own house in order before lecturing others. EU should rein in barbaric Greece, the most corrupt country of Europe with prisoners of conscience, testilying police, malevolent prosecutors, perjurers, and stupidest jurists.

    Greece is an uncivil nation with kangaroo justice, overcriminalization, brutal police, huge political corruption, persecution of dissident bloggers, huge bureaucracy, huge taxation, and 23% VAT. Freakish Graecokleptocrats use the kangaroo justice as a political tool to gag political opponents. The cybercrimes unit (CCU) of the Greek police is the most disgusting cybercriminal organization, stealing computers, jailing bloggers, and spreading huge lies to the media.

    Every year, Graecokleptocrats receive myriad bribes and kickbacks. Many trains bought from Germany do not fit the rails, but they were bought just to generate bribes! In 2009, investigators of the Munich Prosecution Department uncovered a corruption affair, in which MAN has given huge bribes to Greek politicians to get large orders for overpriced trolleys. A streetcar named desire! These trolleys with huge markups are named bribes! But Greek prosecutors have started investigating this scandal just in September of 2012! One of those investigated is Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, the minister who destroyed my life. Xenogiannakopoulou also served as general secretary of Pasok, the most corrupt political party on Earth!

    I accuse the government of Greece for:

    · Persecuting me for five years

    · Stealing my life

    · Stealing my computer and files

    · Spreading lies about me on all Greek media

    · Using the kangaroo justice as a political tool

    · Postponing my trial nine times

    · Locking me in jail without toilet and pillow for a night

    · Taking away my hypertension pills

    · Making me urinate in a bottle

    · Humiliating me with handcuffs, fingerprints, and mug shots

    On October 18, 2010, a gang of six brutal cops of the violent Greek CyberCrimes Unit (CCU), a real godzilla, supervised by a dishonest prosecutor, a pathologic liar, a disgusting rat, raided my home in Athens and stole my computer, software, files, documents, and personal data. The brutal policemen locked me in jail for a night, they humiliated me with handcuffs, fingerprints, mug shots, and lies, leaked false information to the media parrots, and the corrupt Greek government initiated sham court proceedings for a stack of freakish trumped-up defamation charges! There was neither pillow nor toilet facility in my jail cell. I had to urinate in a bottle! I, a seventy-years-old man with high blood pressure, was not allowed to keep my hypertension pills with me. There was neither toilet paper nor soap in the whole CCU jail.

    JAILBIRD FOR A NIGHT

    Big brother checks the internet
    For things you criticize
    To shut your mouth on the net
    To blow minds in the sky.

    Cops busted my home
    And stole my computer
    Hard disk on their comb
    blogger to the shooter.

    They threw me in jail
    For speaking my mind
    My words are out of jail
    Revolting as a kind.

    This jail is awful
    Without pillow alone
    Urinating in a bottle
    And the girl next cell begins to moan.

    Screaming in the dark of jail
    Guards pretending they are deaf
    She is a girl, she is frail
    She is missing her Jeff.

    I can smile at the old days
    I was a handsome then
    Those were real happy days
    Happy memory lives again.

    Lesmiserables in jail
    Kleptocrats out of jail
    This is hell on Earth
    It’s shame and pain.

    Time for a real revolt
    To bring a real change
    To bring the looting to a halt
    Kleptocrats should not escape.

    Kleptocrats must be laughing
    Premier must be happy
    This is stupid and disgusting
    Government has a party.

    Harmglads sleeping before dawn
    Silence cut with a cry
    Jailbird could be reborn
    Coming back to a happy life.

    My memory leads me
    Finding strength within
    People really love me
    A new life should begin.

    Waiting for the sunrise
    Thinking of a new life
    I mustn’t give in
    A new day will begin.

    It’s been five years since the government of Greece stole my life, my computer, and my files. I have done absolutely nothing, and I am being persecuted by the Greek government without any real reason. My ordeal is against all rules of civil society and treaties that Greece has signed. Greece, a corrupt country without a functioning justice system, has gone bananas. Graecokleptocrats use the kangaroo justice as a political tool to gag political opponents. Graecokleptocrats think the laws exist to give them whatever they want! This is psoriasis of democracy, pure and simple.

    Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, sued me, and she wouldn’t show up in court! As a result, my trial has been postponed nine times so far. Xenogiannakopoulou continues to destroy my life without reason whatsoever. I could understand her vengeance, if I did something wrong. But I did absolutely nothing, and vindictive Xenogiannakopoulou barks at the wrong tree. If this is not kangaroo justice, what is it? Has a harmglad sadist minister the right to destroy an innocent citizen in cold blood? For God’s sake what kind of harmjoy is this tragedy anyhow?

    Everyone knows that crime is disproportionately committed by young males and yet at the same time they deny that importing millions of young males might have an effect on crime.

    “Migrants are the latest nuisance to invade Europe, as if the old continent didn’t have enough problems.”

    Migrants and immigration will become the most important polemic within Europe soon because there is no intention of any the governing administrations to do anything about it.They will say this, that and the other, and even make things a little more difficult here and there for migrants – at the same time spending more Taxpayers money.
    But none of them will slay the elephant in the room except parties like Golden Dawn.

    Somebody said if action is taken early enough such ugly politics as fascism can be snuffed out quickly, as in Australia where distinct rules are in place for migration, muslims etc.
    The EU and its members seem incapable of understanding that politics has to change, and cannot be dismissed as populism. Incumbent administrations, seemingly, have to be voted out of power before any notice will be taken of the popular will.

      Well, they are changing. Even the UN is distributing now leaflets for cases of “simplified” procedure. But on the other hand the search for happiness and a better life are more and more recognised and enough for a justification of their presence. This is globalisation and it is not a one-way road.

        And now Sweden has a rape rate akin to south Africa and Lesotho thanks to damaged criminal and misogynist migrants.

        Anyone emoting about migrants and refugees is throwing women under the bus.

        The UK may have 1 million grooming gang victims.

        The authorities normally so keen on stats wont even look at the ethnicity of dv perps or rape perps.

        Rape with weapons has gone up massively n the UK and when one hears news reports so very often it is of such and such appearance.

        These are the stats we do have

        ….Almost a fifth of all people charged with rape or murder last year were immigrants and some were deported only to return and commit more crime, it was revealed today.

        Critics say new figures show the Government has an ‘open door policy’ that allows violent criminals from across the world to enter the UK.

        Freedom of Information data from English and Welsh police forces show last year 91 immigrants were accused of murder while 406 were charged with rape – around one in five of all cases.

    I still like that V.

  • Natural law refers to the use of reason to analyze human nature, both social and personal, and deduce binding rules of moral behavior from it. Natural law is far superior to the legislative law. That’s why many Greeks refuse to obey the stupid legislative laws of the Grand Brothel of Kleptocracy on Syntagma Square. Natural laws serve the people, whereas legislative laws serve the kleptocrats.

    Greek law is not in tune with natural law. The main objective of Greek law is to enslave hoi polloi to Graecokleptocrats. The stupidest law on Earth is that producing audiovisual proof of a crime is a crime! This means that if a Greek presented a video proof in court, he goes to prison, not the criminal!

    Judicial activism describes judicial rulings suspected of being based on personal or political considerations rather than on existing law. The Greek government manipulates judicial activism to its own advantage. Greek justice is a political tool, pure and simple!

    Greece is a kangaroo valley. There are more kangaroos in Greece than in Australia! You can find them in kangaroo courts, handing out kangaroo justice. Les miserables syndrome is the prosecution of a minor infraction which catalyzes a series of major infractions. Innocent people suffer from les miserable syndrome, whereas kleptocrats enjoy impunity. Greek jails are full of les miserables, an injustice which will result in a major revolt against Graecokleptocrats. There is an elasticity limit to how much abuse innocent Greeks could tolerate from their government.

    Graecokleptocrats enjoy impunity, whereas citizens suffer from injustice and perjury. Police thugs are the main perjurers. Greek prosecutors lie like hell! Freak galore! Public prosecutors pick up very easy targets of poor people who cannot afford defense, in order to justify a quota system, and very large targets, in order to get publicity. Prosecuting famous bloggers brings a lot of publicity to Machiavellian kleptocrats, pusillanimous prosecutors, and bumptious policechimps.

    There is no independence of justice in Greece, the most corrupt country in Europe, and perjurers are dime a dozen. The huge Greek judiciary corruption complements the huge political corruption and the police brutality. Extrajudicial rings of judges, prosecutors, policechimps, clergy, and kleptocrats manipulate the Greek justice system. Many judges have been found guilty for participating in trial-fixing rackets. Freak galore!

    There is injustice in Greece. Ex officio law suit means the state sues somebody without involvement of the accuser. This terrible scheme has been used by Graecokleptocrats to persecute dissident bloggers. A Graecokleptocrat would sue an innocent dissident blogger, and the Graecokleptocrat wouldn’t show up in court, because the state takes over the position of the accuser!

    The court trial is postponed infinite times to break the nerves of the innocent blogger at great cost of time and money. This is a disgusting punishment of the presumed innocent. Justice delayed is justice denied. Justice perpetuated is hell. The Greek government uses the ex officio law suit as a political tool.

    The agony of perpetual delay of trial in Greece is being used as a punishment of the innocent without trial. Greek justice is a spider web, catching small prey and swallowing them, while allowing crocodiles to penetrate and dominate it. Visiting Greek prisons, you could see all les miserables that fill them up, but you could not find any kleptocrats.

    Kleptocrats vilify defendants for the benefit of theater, the circus, and political propaganda. Kleptocrats claim the perpetrator walk, or perp-walk, is customary in order to promote the aims of law enforcement, including the deterrence of criminal conduct and the enhancement of public confidence. Policechimps assist the news media in photographing, taping, recording or televising a law enforcement activity. Even though perp-walk is illegal, it’s done anyway in order to satisfy the vanity of brutal policechimps, the comparative political advantage of the government, and the thirst of hoi polloi for blood.

    Graecokleptocrats have devised a way to enslave all Greeks, by overcriminalization. The Grand Brothel of Kleptocracy on Syntagma Square has become a law-mill that continuously generates new stupid laws that all Greeks have to obey except Graecokleptocrats, who enjoy parliamentary immunity. This way Graecokleptocrats create a comparative advantage over all other Greeks leading to enslavement of hoi polloi!

    Most Greeks violate the myriad stupid laws. This enables Graecokleptocrats to intimidate their opponents by selective persecution. For example, there is law that says nobody can park on the sidewalk, but many Greeks park there anyhow! So if a Graecokleptocrat does not like you, he can arrange your persecution for parking your car on your sidewalk! Never mind your neighbor does the same thing and he is not persecuted, because he belongs to another political party.

    Greece has a disproportionately large number of professional lawyers, with 400 lawyers per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to a ratio of 150:100,000 in Germany. Every day, new laws are created that make the yoke on citizens much heavier. Every new law is a new constraint on activity. This cannot go forever. Eventually people will revolt. To make it in life, you have to take risks. But this shakes the status quo of kleptocrats, who might lock you in jail! Kleptocrats want you to live a monotonous boring life, enslaved to kleptocratic wishes, under the statist yoke. But this kind of life is not worth living.

    Overcriminalization provides prosecutors with unfettered control over broad swaths of criminal adjudication and legislative interpretation. The proliferation of vague and overly broad laws has given prosecutors the ability to stack criminal charges against defendants in a way that diminishes the likelihood of a criminal trial and increases the probability of a guilty plea.

    Overcriminalization gives prosecutors vast latitude to secure guilty verdicts. In the interpretive context, the proliferation of vague and overbroad criminal laws has given prosecutors the ability to apply vague, overly broad criminal laws to a vast array of conduct. The prosecutor essentially becomes a lawmaker, providing meaning and context to an otherwise open-ended statute or regulation.

    The unprincipled growth of criminal law has also led to the inappropriate delegation of legislative authority to the judicial branch. Judges often must take it upon themselves to create meaning from vague, unbounded criminal offenses such as the honest services fraud statute. When interpreting the large number of imprecise and unclear criminal-intent requirements in statutory and regulatory criminal offenses, judges are essentially co-opted into rewriting the laws and finding meaning where there is none.

    It is undoubtedly convenient and expedient for parliaments to create imprecise, hastily drafted criminal laws and allow prosecutors and judges to interpret them as they will. The same can be said about authorizing unelected bureaucrats in agencies to make the crucial criminal-law decisions that will affect citizens’ most fundamental rights and liberties.

    However, the fundamental duty for full deliberation over and precise crafting of every criminal law belongs to parliaments. When a parliament carries out this duty in a haphazard, imprecise manner, or expressly delegates it away to government agencies, both individual citizens and the nation’s system of constitutional government are harmed.

    A parliament’s overcriminalization expands the power of the government beyond its constitutional limits. The proliferation of vague, overly broad federal criminal laws results in separation-of-powers violations and encroaches upon the rights of innocent citizens. The destructive constitutional implications of overcriminalization are one more compelling reason for parliament to rein in the unbridled and unprincipled growth of criminal statutes and regulations.

    Criminal law has exploded in size and scope and deteriorated in quality. It used to focus on inherently wrongful conduct: treason, murder, counterfeiting, and the like. Today, an unimaginably broad range of socially and economically beneficial conduct is criminalized. More and more citizens who have worked diligently to abide by the law are being trapped and unjustly punished due to vague, overly broad criminal offenses. Parliaments must halt their overcriminalization rampage.

    Overcriminalization is out of control. Before enacting any new criminal law, a parliament should review the questions raised by the criminal law checklist for legislators, which is produced by a wide coalition of organizations. Its questions help ensure that any new criminal laws stay within the bounds of fairness, the rule of law, and the constitution.

    Prosecutors are rewarded for winning at all costs, they have no incentive to seek the truth rather than a conviction, and they are entirely unaccountable when they pervert justice in pursuit of victory. People shouldn’t believe that their innocence provides any protection. The question isn’t whether you have done anything wrong, but whether the criminal justice system is going to target you – and once you’re in that system, you face prohibitive odds of emerging from it without being hurt.

    Experiences illustrate the reality of prosecutorial over-reach, and the ease with which people can find themselves in court facing prison time and financial ruin over charges that have no merit. That’s why many people who face charges accept a deal in exchange for foregoing their right to a trial. They’re terrified, which is understandable, and if they wind up with a public defender they’ll be fed into a plea-bargaining machine. And prosecutors know that the key to career advancement is to win convictions.

    Both judges and prosecutors enjoy absolute immunity for their official conduct. Although it is both an ethics violation and a crime for a prosecutor to withhold evidence, it is all but impossible to find an example of a post-conviction case in which a prosecutor has been sanctioned for such behavior.

    EU might deteriorate to the miserable level of extremely corrupt Greece. Your government is your #1 enemy. Brutal police and kangaroo courts are tools to enslave you to your government. But badges and benches do not grant extra rights. It’s your duty as a citizen to become a popopaparazzo, recording misconduct of police, prosecutors, and politicians. Use your smartphone to unmask cops and kleptocrats.

    What a load of Ballax? GD are criminal mafia run by hard men and enforced by thugs. They represent exactly why Greece is a car crash, of stolen money, tax evasion, and protection money. They’re nothing like Ukip and have far more in common with Militant Islam. The Golden Dawns answer for everything is ” It’s the Joos!” and a punch in the face. Utter scum.

  • The Muslim population in Greece consists of different

    ethnic, linguistic and social backgrounds. Islam is the creed of several ethnic
    groups living in Greece, namely Arabs, Albanians, Pomaks, Turks, Gypsies, and
    Greek Muslims. The first immigrants of Islamic faith, mostly Egyptian, arrived
    in the early 1950s from Egypt, and are concentrated in the country’s two main
    urban centers, Athens and Salonica.

    Africa, as well as from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Somalia,
    Albania, and Vardaska. 10% of the people in Greece are now Muslims. Since they multiply much faster than Greeks
    and are reinforced by new swarms of Muslim pseudorefugees,
    it’s possible Greece to become a Muslim country within a century!

    Islam now invades Greece. Muslim pseudorefugees swarm amuck to Greek islands. Most Muslims of Greece prefer Shariah over the law of
    the land, and they would support the use of violence to impose Shariah over the
    constitution of Greece! These facts run contrary to the narrative propagated by
    the media and Graecokleptocrats,
    who hoodwink that such radical views are only held by a tiny minority of extremists.

    EU
    encourages the illegal immigration of Muslims, even though the annual cost of a
    Muslim pseudorefugee is forty thousand euros! Corrupt Erdogan asks Turks
    to drastically multiply like rats in order to Islamize Europe! Erdogan
    says: The mosques are our barracks and armories, the domes our helmets, the
    minarets our bayonets, and the faithful our soldiers!

    ISIS declares: We will conquer Athens, transform
    Parthenon and churches to mosques, fly our flag on Acropolis, break all
    crosses, and enslave Christian women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted.
    This is His promise to us; He is glorified and He does not fail in His promise.
    If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach
    it, and they will sell Greeks as slaves at the market.

    Pakistan
    exports its criminals to Occident.
    Pakistan cannot feed its prisoners, and so it exiles them! Most of them head for EU, ending up in
    Greece, unable to reach UK and Germany.
    Now, Pakistani criminals burglarize myriad Greek homes and raise hell to
    Greek society. My own home was
    burglarized three times by Pakistani!
    Since Greek police is not effective, Golden Dawn storm-troopers have
    taken to roaming the streets on foot or on motorcycles, attacking criminal
    Pakistani. That’s why the Golden Dawn
    party is becoming very popular.

    NATO bombs Muslim countries, and as a
    result Muslims find a good excuse to swarm to Greece. This is a real boomerang,
    a magnificent blowback. Greece is now
    paying for the wars NATO created without thinking of consequences. NATO
    engineered all color revolutions and other revolts, turning peoples against
    their rulers with huge propaganda via internet, fireflies, and NGOs. It’s high time to get rid of NATO and all
    warmongers.

    Hour by hour, the migrant crisis at Greek islands
    spreads and worsens. The Greek government and the EU authorities that claim to
    rule the destinies of eleven million Greeks are limp, helpless and prostrate in
    the face of invasive aggression by illiterate criminals. Future historians will struggle in vain to
    understand the suicidal masochism that impelled politicians to hand over Greece
    to a devastating invasion. But they will struggle even harder to comprehend why
    Greeks meekly submitted to conquest.

    The chaos in Greece looks only as if it is going to
    get worse rather than better. We need more than just words, we need action, and
    the government’s approach on this has consisted of weak peddling. Tsipras is
    soft with EU in the hope of a few extra crumbs off the table in debt negotiations.
    Greece however urgently needs a tough new approach on illegal migrants that
    sends a clear message that those who seek to enter Greece illegally and make Athens
    their home will not be allowed to. If we do not start sending that message, the
    problem isn’t going away any time soon.

    The EU is deliberately bringing in as much immigration
    into Greece as possible in an effort to divide and conquer the original
    inhabitants of Greece who love freedom. Since asylum seekers pay thousands of
    euros to smugglers to get to Greece, they must have enough money to pay for
    hotel rooms. Instead, the taxpayers pay all their expenses.

    EU believes in divide-and-conquer so it’s deliberately
    sucking in as much immigration into Greece as it possibly can with the idea of
    wiping out Eurosceptics, cleansing Greece from free spirits, so that the number
    of immigrants exceeds the number of the original proud population. The Greeks
    will be a minority in their own nation. So it’s a huge success for EU to be
    moving aside outspoken Greeks that used to live in Greece.

  • The bad effect of religion is very prevalent in Greece. Orthodox Christianity has turned the glory of ancient Greece to the misery of modern Greece. It has transformed many Greeks to crooks, liars, and thieves. Greece is now the most corrupt country of Europe. Pasok is the most corrupt political party on planet Earth.

    Sigmund Freud said: God is a projection of childish father-figure preoccupations. Prayer and religious ritual are obsessive-compulsive. Religion is a universal neurosis. Religion’s doctrines carry with them the stamp of the times in which they originated, the ignorant childhood days of the human race. Its consolations deserve no trust. Religion is comparable to a childhood neurosis.

    The Greek Orthodox Church has always been involved in huge corruption, orgies, trial rigging, narcotics trading, and antiquities smuggling, but reached its climax with Archbishop Christodoulos, the most disgusting shitscum on planet Earth, the most corrupt bishop in the history of Christianity. Christodoulos was the godfather of Golden Fountain, a mafia of gay bishops that terrorized Greece.

    Greeks watched dumbfounded as allegations of their priesthood’s dissolute lifestyle have unfolded on their television screens. Snatched tape-recordings, aired nightly, revealed rampant homosexuality among bishops who, unlike ordinary priests, are under oaths of chastity. Bishop Theoklitos of Thessaly, a leading churchman, was arrested on drug dealing in a police raid on a notorious nightclub in Athens. Theoklitos was rounded up with Seraphim, the private secretary of Christodoulos and coordinator of gay orgies with bishops.

    Albert Einstein said: The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can for me change this. For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions. And the Jewish people to whom I gladly belong and with whose mentality I have a deep affinity have no different quality for me than all other people. As far as my experience goes, they are also no better than other human groups, although they are protected from the worst cancers by a lack of power. Otherwise I cannot see anything chosen about them.

    Bishop Panteleimon of Attica was withdrawn from duties after revelations of lewd exchanges with young men and robbery of five million euros. The bishop is one of several eminent clergy whose names have been linked in a huge trial-fixing and corruption scandal involving thirty judges and Christodoulos. In the wake of suggestions by fellow members of the synod that he resign, Panteleimon said: If I speak, there will be an earthquake. I’ll take many bishops with me to my grave.

    A supernatural creator does not exist. Belief in a personal god qualifies as a delusion, which is a persistent false belief held in the face of strong contradictory evidence. When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion. One does not need religion to be moral. It’s enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it. What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

    Archimandrite Giosakis was suspended after being charged with antiquities smuggling following the disappearance of valuable icons from his diocese. Many bishops were captured on camera having sex. Christodoulos hired convicted drug smuggler, Apostolos Vavylis, to help elect a favored cleric to the post of patriarch of Jerusalem. Christodoulos also wrote a recommendation letter for Vavylis months before he was arrested smuggling heroin. “A tsunami is coming and it will reach the archbishop himself,” predicted bishop Chrysostomos of Zakynthos. Christodoulos died of AIDS before the tsunami reached him. For the last two centuries, the church has had a leading role in Greece, but now it is fighting a battle to maintain its grip on Greek society.

    Defamation of the Greek Church is considered lèse-majesté by the ridiculous constitution of Greece! Graecokleptocrats use the Church of Greece as a political tool to stupefy hoi polloi. That’s why the Greek government pays all salaries of clergy and major expenses of the Church. Malevolent Graecokleptocrats are presented to stupefied hoi polloi as a manifestation of God’s benevolence! Most bishops form a gay club full of scandals, and they can easily be blackmailed and manipulated by Graecokleptocrats.

    Graecokleptocrats have made their culture of corruption the norm of the national character of Greece. The debasement of the Greek soul is due to huge political corruption, statist propaganda, and religulous brainwashing. Plato and Aristotle asserted that different regimes produce different types of human beings, and regimes ought to be judged by the character of their citizens.

    Under Tsipras’ leadership, Greece has begun a march towards secularism and away from Greek theocracy and the political supremacy of the corrupt Greek Orthodox Church. It wouldn’t be the first time a government sought to weaken the influence of an official state church, and here as in other cases, we see economic and political issues linked inextricably to cultural and religious ones. The fate of economic stability in Greece may, in some ways, depend on how successfully it can pry off the long-ossified fingers of its religious overlords.

    There is no separation of church and state in Greece. Leaders of the Orthodox Church are present for, and often preside over, most political ceremonies. They swear oaths of office on a Bible. All clergy are on the state payroll. Christian theology lessons and state-sanctioned prayer breaks are mandatory in all public schools. All religious institutions are tax-exempt. These are privileges that are historically entrenched and all-but-guaranteed by a constitution that essentially declares Orthodox Christianity the official state religion.

    Tsipras made headlines first by openly and proudly declaring his atheism and later by choosing to be sworn into office in a secular ceremony, one conspicuously void of clerical authority or religious paraphernalia. This made him both the country’s first-ever atheist premier and the first to break with the centuries-old tradition of being sworn in under the watchful gaze of the archbishop of Athens.

    In an effort to both cut government expenditure and increase revenue, many have called for a reevaluation of the church-state relationship, an anathema to the corrupt Church. EU demands an end to the privileges of the corrupt Greek Church. It’s a reform measure that would entail, among other things, ending the government subsidy of religious institutions and their activities, ending their tax-exempt status, removing all clergy from the state payroll, and scrutinizing some of their shadier property claims. This would be a devastating blow to a corrupt Church that has long thrived off a never-ending supply of state-sanctioned resources and a declarative victory for secularism in the Mediterranean.

    Actors, the producer, and the director of an American play in Greece that depict Jesus Christ and his apostles as gay have been charged with blasphemy. A production of Corpus Christi in Athens was canceled after weeks of almost daily protests outside the theater by freakish priests and stupid fascists.

    Stupid charges of insulting religion and malicious blasphemy have been filed after deranged Bishop Seraphim of Piraeus lodged a stupid lawsuit against those involved in Corpus Christi. Heroic defendants face several months in a Greek barbaric prison. The stupid charges drew international criticism from civil rights groups, describing the barbaric Greek blasphemy laws as anachronistic stupidities that must be abolished.

    Freakish demonstrators, including fascists and priests, blocked the entrance of the theater and clashed with police on the night of the play’s premiere. Freakish priests holding crosses were shown on television tearing up posters promoting Corpus Christi. A powerful institution, the Orthodox Church enjoys religious monopoly and plays an influential role in the bewildered Greek society.

    The prosecutor’s decision to press stupid charges against Corpus Christi was condemned by all civil society. It’s the religulous bullies outside the theater who should be put on the stand and not the actors. Persecuting art is a glorification of the stupid Dark Ages.

    Philip Loizos, who was poking fun at a bewildered Greek Orthodox dead monk, has been sentenced to ten months in prison for blasphemy! Lawyer George Kleftodimos says: Loizos was merely satirizing in a country that gave birth to satire. Never and by no means did he insult the Greek Church.The 28-year-old man was arrested on the stupid charge for creating a Facebook page mocking a deceased Orthodox monk prompting Greeks to take to social networking sites in protest. The man lampooned Elder Paisios, a popular religulous figure, using the name Elder Pastitsios. Pastitsio is a Greek pasta dish, and the page parodied the monk and his work in the mode of Pastafarianism, a lighthearted satirical movement that promotes irreligion. Elder Paisios is shown with a plate of pastitsio.

    Innocent Pastafarian was arrested at his home in Athens following stupid complaints received by the Greek police’s brutal Cyber Crime Unit (CCU). The violent cybercops also stole the man’s laptop. CCU is the most disgusting group of Greek police, which breaks in the homes of dissident bloggers, stealing their computers and files, and locking them in filthy jails which have neither soap nor toilet paper! Blasphemy in Greece carries a fine of up to 3,000 euros, and up to two years imprisonment. This reveals the barbarity and brutality of Greece. Brutal Greek cops can turn your head to moussaka!

    The Synod of the Church of Greece declared the practice of yoga has no place in the lives of Christians! Since yoga is a fundamental aspect of Hinduism, it cannot be practiced by Christians, and it cannot be considered as a form of exercise. The corrupt Church of Greece claims it has a responsibility to fight yoga in order to avoid developing a climate of religious syncretism.

    EU might deteriorate to the miserable level of extremely corrupt Greece. Your government is your #1 enemy. Brutal police and kangaroo courts are tools to enslave you to your government. But badges and benches do not grant extra rights. It’s your duty as a citizen to become a popopaparazzo, recording misconduct of police, prosecutors, and politicians. Use your smartphone to unmask cops and kleptocrats.

    The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing. A glaring example is my persecution by the government of Greece, which grossly violates my civil rights.

    Martin Niemöller said: First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me!

    EU practices double standards on civil rights. It’s freakish for EU to interfere in the civil rights of foreigners, but condone the abuse of my civil rights, a citizen of EU! EU should get its own house in order before lecturing others. EU should rein in barbaric Greece, the most corrupt country of Europe with prisoners of conscience, testilying police, malevolent prosecutors, perjurers, and stupidest jurists.

    Greece is an uncivil nation with kangaroo justice, overcriminalization, brutal police, huge political corruption, persecution of dissident bloggers, huge bureaucracy, huge taxation, and 23% VAT. Freakish Graecokleptocrats use the kangaroo justice as a political tool to gag political opponents. The cybercrimes unit (CCU) of the Greek police is the most disgusting cybercriminal organization, stealing computers, jailing bloggers, and spreading huge lies to the media.

    Every year, Graecokleptocrats receive myriad bribes and kickbacks. Many trains bought from Germany do not fit the rails, but they were bought just to generate bribes! In 2009, investigators of the Munich Prosecution Department uncovered a corruption affair, in which MAN has given huge bribes to Greek politicians to get large orders for overpriced trolleys. A streetcar named desire! These trolleys with huge markups are named bribes! But Greek prosecutors have started investigating this scandal just in September of 2012! One of those investigated is Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, the minister who destroyed my life. Xenogiannakopoulou also served as general secretary of Pasok, the most corrupt political party on Earth!

    I accuse the government of Greece for:

    · Persecuting me for five years

    · Stealing my life

    · Stealing my computer and files

    · Spreading lies about me on all Greek media

    · Using the kangaroo justice as a political tool

    · Postponing my trial nine times

    · Locking me in jail without toilet and pillow for a night

    · Taking away my hypertension pills

    · Making me urinate in a bottle

    · Humiliating me with handcuffs, fingerprints, and mug shots

    On October 18, 2010, a gang of six brutal cops of the violent Greek CyberCrimes Unit (CCU), a real godzilla, supervised by a dishonest prosecutor, a pathologic liar, a disgusting rat, raided my home in Athens and stole my computer, software, files, documents, and personal data. The brutal policemen locked me in jail for a night, they humiliated me with handcuffs, fingerprints, mug shots, and lies, leaked false information to the media parrots, and the corrupt Greek government initiated sham court proceedings for a stack of freakish trumped-up defamation charges! There was neither pillow nor toilet facility in my jail cell. I had to urinate in a bottle! I, a seventy-years-old man with high blood pressure, was not allowed to keep my hypertension pills with me. There was neither toilet paper nor soap in the whole CCU jail.

    JAILBIRD FOR A NIGHT

    Big brother checks the internet
    For things you criticize
    To shut your mouth on the net
    To blow minds in the sky.

    Cops busted my home
    And stole my computer
    Hard disk on their comb
    blogger to the shooter.

    They threw me in jail
    For speaking my mind
    My words are out of jail
    Revolting as a kind.

    This jail is awful
    Without pillow alone
    Urinating in a bottle
    And the girl next cell begins to moan.

    Screaming in the dark of jail
    Guards pretending they are deaf
    She is a girl, she is frail
    She is missing her Jeff.

    I can smile at the old days
    I was a handsome then
    Those were real happy days
    Happy memory lives again.

    Lesmiserables in jail
    Kleptocrats out of jail
    This is hell on Earth
    It’s shame and pain.

    Time for a real revolt
    To bring a real change
    To bring the looting to a halt
    Kleptocrats should not escape.

    Kleptocrats must be laughing
    Premier must be happy
    This is stupid and disgusting
    Government has a party.

    Harmglads sleeping before dawn
    Silence cut with a cry
    Jailbird could be reborn
    Coming back to a happy life.

    My memory leads me
    Finding strength within
    People really love me
    A new life should begin.

    Waiting for the sunrise
    Thinking of a new life
    I mustn’t give in
    A new day will begin.

    It’s been five years since the government of Greece stole my life, my computer, and my files. I have done absolutely nothing, and I am being persecuted by the Greek government without any real reason. My ordeal is against all rules of civil society and treaties that Greece has signed. Greece, a corrupt country without a functioning justice system, has gone bananas. Graecokleptocrats use the kangaroo justice as a political tool to gag political opponents. Graecokleptocrats think the laws exist to give them whatever they want! This is psoriasis of democracy, pure and simple.

    Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, sued me, and she wouldn’t show up in court! As a result, my trial has been postponed nine times so far. Xenogiannakopoulou continues to destroy my life without reason whatsoever. I could understand her vengeance, if I did something wrong. But I did absolutely nothing, and vindictive Xenogiannakopoulou barks at the wrong tree. If this is not kangaroo justice, what is it? Has a harmglad sadist minister the right to destroy an innocent citizen in cold blood? For God’s sake what kind of harmjoy is this tragedy anyhow?

    The smearing of UKIP is just that.

    Financial Times piece from October 2013 (so don’t blame Syriza, Nea Demokratia were in control)

    It says Golden Dawn have infiltrated the police, so the reporting of only immigrant crimes is further evidence of just that.

    http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/e5046b8c-3261-11e3-b3a7-00144feab7de.html#axzz3iIqCKYmb
    Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party has penetrated the country’s police force, set up caches of heavy weapons in remote locations and trained its recruits to carry out brutal attacks against immigrants and political opponents, according to the country’s top security official.

    Nikos Dendias, minister of public order and civil protection, said in an interview with the Financial Times that Golden Dawn’s cult of extreme violence was “unique” among European far-right groups.

  • Abie Vee

    Take it from Tacky. I wonder if he’s ever managed to kick the cocaine habit?

  • Shorne

    “In pictures taken during the first congress of Golden Dawn in February 1990, the congress hall is decorated with the Swastika and the Wolfsangel.”
    “Police say they found evidence linking the killer of Pavlos Fyssas to the Golden Dawn leadership. In the homes of [Golden Dawn]MPs arrested, they said they uncovered photos of Adolf Hitler and swastika flags”
    “In April 2014, Golden Dawn MP Ilias Panagiotaros described Hitler as a “great personality, like Stalin”
    “As depicted in a picture taken on 14 September 2012, Panagiotis Iliopoulos, another Golden Dawn MP, has a tattoo reading the Nazi greeting Sieg Heil.”
    ‘In an article published in 1987 in the Golden Dawn magazine titled “Hitler for 1000 years”, its editor Michaloliakos showed his support for Nazism and white supremacy. Specifically he wrote, “We are the faithful soldiers of the National Socialist idea and nothing else”‘

    And so on and so on.
    Also why the views of an old jailbird like Tacky should be given particular credence is beyond me.

    • Leon Wolfeson

      Indeed – the core of UKIP is Culturally Imperialist rather than anything worse, but they’re not very careful about their allies.

      • Dan O’Connor

    A fifth of rape and murder perps are immigrants. How many victims do pro migration people want?

    • Leon Wolfeson

      So you’re absolute fine with four fifths of the rapes and murders.

      Less than you, obviously, since I condemn all criminals, not just a fifth of one category, or by skin colour. And then there’s the issue of discrimination…

  • J K

    Every time the Spectator publishes one of Taki’s pro-Golden dawn articles the mask slips: does it not occur to the editors just how stupid these articles are? Why don’t they do even a minimum of research to counterbalance this propaganda? Here’s a video from EuroNews of Golden Dawn thugs beating up street vendors https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcl4D7DWxPE – doesn’t exactly take very long to find. It’s scarcely a surprise to see Taki misrepresent Syriza, but i love the idea of Golden Dawn as ‘incorruptible’ – I can just imagine Taki salivating over such Golden shaven-headed youth; I’m not sure how many would willingly submit to being his catamite however. When the Spectator publishes these articles I can’t tell whether Fraser et al simply want to smear UKIP by association – or egg them into militancy. Both?

  • yecalsemaj .

    What about the murder of anti fascist campaigner Pavlos Fyssas stabbed to death by members of Golden Dawn. Would members of UKIP do that? Of course they wouldn’t don’t give these fascists legitimacy by comparing them to UKIP. I’m no UKIP supporter but this is disgusting.

    • Dan O’Connor

      He was not stabbed to death by a mob of Golden Dawn members .
      It was a bar fight and the Pavlos Fyssas was stabbed to death not by a member of Golden Dawn, but a man who the police later had found out had Golden Dawn election campaign literature at his home.
      This is was the cynical pretext the UN / EU System was desperately hoping for to arrest and imprison the party leadership . I’m sure you would object to the Labour party leadership being imprisoned if someone who voted for them killed someone in a bar fight.
      Why don’t you mention the women who was burned to death when a group of Lefties bombed a bank in Greece. Why don’t you mention the two Leftist assasins on motor bikes who shot to death two Golden Dawn party members outside the offices of Golden Dawn
      Would member of the UN / EU supported Greek commie / bolshevik anti-White Left do that ? They did .

      • yecalsemaj .

        The wrongs of others doesn’t make the actions of Fascists acceptable. And piss off while your at it you crazy Fascist idiot.

        • Dan O’Connor

          There are no nationalist / kinist / identitarian parties or movements in the West advocating and driving social policies that are leading to the ethnic / racial / historical / ancestral / religious and cultural third world balkanisation and atomisation of their own societies and in the process are importing the internatisatiom of centuries of conflict , suffering and pain for our native peoples .
          However All hard left, soft left / liberal / centre / right of centre / and conservative political parties , media and intellectuals and the UN, and Fortune 500 corporations are committed to the dispossession of their own peoples and transforming Western societies into third world authoritarian police stater slums ,as proof of their moral supremacy.
          A ” fascist ” is code for = any person of European stock who does want all non-Europeans do,, which is organise to put their own people’s interests first.

          • Leon Wolfeson

            Yes yes, that evil democracy and those evil non-far right people, the vast majority. How dare they!

            You keep trying to “code”, i.e. use orwellian revisionism on words.

All non-Whites understand the concepts of nationhood and peoplehood and the extend family , the family writ large, by instinct, and would rise up to prevent their dispossession and minoritisation and every White Left / LIberal ” anti-racist ” would move heaven and earth to defend the rights of blood and soil of all non White indigenous peoples —.you hypocrite

I bet you don’t spend your time on the blog sites of non-White nations and admonishing them for wanting to remain the ruling ethnic majority in their own homelands. Do you really believe all non-Whites think like you ?

            It would need at least a book to debunk your argument that Whites shagging themselves to ethnic racial oblivion can happen in a way that only benefits Whites and that it would improve the world and make it less conflict prone if they did .
            It would need a book to debunk your hippy adolescent rainbow utopian brotherhood of man crap , because it is difficult to reason a person out of a state of mind they did not use reason and logic to get themselves into in the first place
            It would take a book because a lie can have breakfast and travel all the way around the world and back again while the truth is still getting his boots on
            It would take a book, because contrary to what you believe , everything is NOT, including the truth, as obvious as the nose on your face .
            That’s why your ilk are suckers for every New World Man utopian novelty and fashion fad

    The symbol on the flag in the picture is an ancient Greek symbol which appears on many ancient Greek monunments. For Left wing hippies, it is the swazstika.
    Golden Dawn, UKIP, BNP, National Front, Le Pen’s NF, The Swedish Democrat Party ,the Austrian Freedom Party , and the newly emerging nationalist / identitarian Alt-Right movement, are just nature’s way of trying to slow down the Left/ Capitalist demographic / ethnic/ racial death march of Western civilization a little
    For the Left hippies and their crony corporate robber baron allies and the managerial career spiv politicaians, they are all cartoonised “Neo-Nazis ” who want to exterminate tens of millions of non-Whites and Jews .
    For the last 50 years , the people who run international finance, the goverments , the media and the universities have all concluded in spending all of their time accusing any attempt to organise to prevent the demographic third world balkanisation and destruction of our societies in the West , as being ” fascists ” as a way to paint themselves as the exact opposite.
    They have wickedly and cynically waged a relentless neuro-linguistic ( Hysterical anti-fascism ) and ” anti-racism ” campaign as a bogey man to White guilt intimidate and demonise their own historical populations into collaborating in handing over our land’s, heritage, identites and social capital to competing alien peoples and cultures. This explains the reason why White people are reacting abnormally and unnaturally to the last 50 years of their own cultural, territorial and demographic dispossession and eradication.
    The goverments , the media and the Left would rather sit back and watch their own civilization being hollowed out from within and destroyed than admit that what they are doing is evil and sociopathic, because they are afraid of losing their iron grip on the goverments, media and universities and on thought and
    speech– ” the narrative ”
    These people feel absolutely no links or affinity with their own particular historical peoples or a wish to preserve them.

  • Dan O’Connor

    In the West we are living under a collective sociological Great Lie. A series of coporate, govemental, media , university enforced ideological absurdities that everyone is intimidated into perpetuating or at least silently submitting to, have taken on the properties of a secular religion.
    The same process took place in the Soviet Union. It is form of cultural communism.
    Example ; It is not possible to distinguish between the White flight migratory patterns of a typical White middle / upper class hipster liberal progressive or a member of the KKK. When it comes to where they make their homes and raise their children, even the most progressive anti-racist Liberals will suddenly develope a grasp of reality that is totally at odds with everything they claim to believe in and stand for. Do as they say, not as they do.
    There is a reason why ” anti-racism ” and being a ” Liberal ” has become to popular in the West . It is because you don’t have to do anything to be one. There are no personal risks or sacrifices involved. You don’t have to share your house with Somali refugees who have been shipped in by Christian refugee organisations. Being a Liberal progressive ” anti-racist ” is the cheapest form of virtue one can buy in the West today. It consists of potentially serious consequences for any uppity Whites who dare to wander outside the fence lines of this Left Stalinist ideological gulag and lucrative rewards of higher social status and career prospects for cringing conformity to the dialetical polemic. ( The West’s version of a Dacha in the countryside. ) It is the usual carrot and stick method.
    The love of ” diversity ” that LIberals have for it , is directly proportionate to their lack of proximity to it
    Any society that commits unilatteral identity capitulation in a very ehtnically / raciallly competitive and aware world, by socially criminalising amongst its own peoples, the most normal and natural, the most universal and hard wired instinct known to mankind, the mechanisms of group self-preservation and peoplehood / nationhood , has no future .
    It has a one way express ticket to the Darwinian scrap heap of history.

    The most monstrous and successful neurolinguisatic indoctrination project in human history is reaching its final stages. The aim of the project was to exploit an entire civilzation’s manic obsession with hyper moralism and hysterical egalitarianism and collective historical guilt into convincing them that they are uniquely oppressive and evil . To hoodwink them into conflating love for our own peoples and any attempt by European peoples to assert our group identities and to organise to prevent our ethnic dilution and lands, heritage and identiites and social capitial being handed over to competing alien peoples and cultures, and being transformed into minorities of dwindling numbers and influence , as a thing that inflicts only White people who are “uneducated, stupid, hate mongers ” who are suffering from some form of
    “mental abnormality ”
    This is nothingless than than a catastophy for Western civilzation, but it is an immense windfall for other historical rival ethnic groups who have taken full advantage of the power vaccum this has created, who now have a grip on all of the West’s financial, govermental, media cultural and academic choke points and have been at the forefront of inserting this self destructive bacilli into the body politic of Western man for the last hundred years

  • Dan O’Connor

    For the Frankfurt School / SPLC indoctrinated Liberal Left hipster mind, two things cannot be both true at the same time. They always conflate natural and normal defensive kinism when practised amongst Whites ( and only Whites ) with WW2 German aggressive ethnic chauvanism, as if Nazism came about as a reaction by Germans to being transformed into a minority by massive African / Asiam , Muslim / Hispanic population replacement level third world immigration
    This is an anti-intellectual and infantile lie.
    But they don’t just want to eradicte kinism amongst Whites. They want to de-kinise their own historical peoples , which is the most inhuman thing one can do to any peoples.
    Even more insane , they seem to believe that they , the Left / Liberals and their children, will be immune from the consequences of their own insanity.
    That futute generations of African and Muslim and Mexican immigrants will build statues to honour their names and sing euologies of praise to their memories
    Nothing could be further from the truth . Our replacers will see them as White people and despise them equally and laugh at them as idiots , the only group in human history to go mad, jetison centuries of wisdom , reason and logic and embrace absurdities and support policies that would economically, culturally, politically, territortially , electorally and demographically, first weaken, then disempower and replace their own group so they no longer have the numbers necessary to determine their own future and destiny . Western uninversities, have become Cargo Cult loony bins. Jim Jones suicide cults .
    They believe that third world immigrants are an ethnic cleansing demographic biological weapon to wipe out ” racism ” amongst White people, which means the eradication of majority White nations.
    70 years ago , they told the people of the West that they may have to die to prevent the Nazis from taking over their lands .
    Today , 70 years later , they tell the people of the West that they may have to die out to prevent the Nazis from taking over their lands .

    The fully institutionalised meme is very clear and is confirmed by many Left commentators below , who always when challenged, either respond with deafening silence, evasions or deny it , and then in their next breath confirm it in their own words .
    It is that if all European peoples don’t become the first people in all of human history to gleefully support a self-destructive mass self-colonisation / replacement immigration ideology, that it will result in the “Nazis ” taking over our lands .
    For anyone who still possesses the ability of rational thought , this is asking us to jetison centuries of wisdom and intuitive reasoning and live a life of toxic lies and believe in utter absurdities
    Unfortunately many of our people have been subject to 50 years of wicked, cynical and relentless collective racial demonisation ,intimidation , guilt whipping , emasculation , vilification, indictment for crimes against humanity and racial double moral standards . Being born White is a sin . The modern day version of biblical Original Sin

    Leftism / CultMarxism / Liberalism employs the oversimplistic anti-rational lies of absolutism
    For the Left mind there can be no such thing as too much or too little of a ” good ” thing
    But this is infantile nonsense . Every virtue, such as love, has two vices.
    Example ; Place the word ” love ” in the middle, then the top , and then the bottom of a vertical line.
    The love at the middle of the line represents normal love
    The love at the bottom of the line represents the total absence of love
    The love at the top of the line represents love taken to an unhealthy emotional obsession and infatutation
    Yes , there is such a thing as too much love

    It is the same with ” in group favouratism ” ( = racism ) , if you have too much in-group solidarity / supremacy you might be inspired to exterminate millions of the ” Other ” such as Mongols did, or Muslims did , or Bolshevilk Jews did , or Germans in WW2 did
    If you have too little in group favouratism it becomes abnormal and unnatural out group favouratism ( = anti racism ) then this total inversion of ethnic / tribal solidarity becomes a self destructive pathology, a mean and wicked abnormal and unnatural racism against one’s own people
    This is clearly demonstrated by the White middle / upper classLeft /LIberal hipster’s knee jerk Pavlovian reflex to take the side of non-Whites in every ethnic conflict at every available opporunity because he is programmed to do so by some pre written mental script or template , such as
    ” all non-Whites = good , innocent , victimised, marginalised , more worthy , virtuous and heroic on account of nothing more than their non-Whiteness

It has as been made so broad is its concept by the Left and has straqyed so far from it has strayed so far from its orginal meaning By the CultMarx Left and Establishment who the self anointed Gate Keepers of Definitions, that it is impossible for any White person to refute.
    It is Orwellian in its aims .

    It is simply an idiotic contradiction in terms to call either UKIP or Golden Dawn Nazis. Indeed, the whole point of the German Nazism was creation of a new Euroempire, the 3d Reich. Hitler was a great europhile, like Merkel, in contrast to Bismarck who was a German patriot and hated Europe. Both UKIP and Golden Dawn strongly oppose their countries’ participation in EU. They are patriots as opposed to Euroimperialists who are the real descendants of Hitler (and Napoleon).

    When the ruling Left / Capitalist regime in the West drives sociopathic social and immigration policies that put everything to hazard, our lands, the ability to determine our own destiny, and the very future of our children and our very biological continuation as a peoples, a race and civilization, and is creating the ideal conditions for centuries of internal rivalries and conflict, every other concern or issue must take second place.
    It is not our right to resist , it is our duty to resist .
    It is a nature ordained impertitive of the highest order.

    Notice how the Left have evolved a series of clever semantic double bind arguments

    1 ) The Left’s starting point argument was always that our dispossession and minoritisation was just a ” far right wing paranoid loony conspiracy theory ”
    ( As if Lefties cared if we become a minority , when they are cheering it on with estatic ” anti-racist ” maniacal glee. ) Oh the double talk chutszpha !

    2 ) When this argument begins to break down under a mountain of demographic statistics, the Left do their famous trademark side shuffle evasion and move on to fall-back position number 2 , which is

    ” who cares if Whites become minorities , because it’s good for our economy ”

    ( suddenly they are full of love and concern for White people ) Oh, sure they are

    When this is proven untrue , they switch to ” it will culturally enrich us ”

    When this is proven to be nonsense , they are forced to be a little more honest , with

    ” It’s a collective blood libel vendetta pay back time against White people and all of their children’s children for the sins of our White ancestors ”

    Oh , I see, so the Left can’t get their story straight . One moment they love us so much they want to culturally enrich us , and the next moment put the boot in by ethnically eradicatiing evil Whitey with morally superior Africans and Muslims and Mettzos who the Left believe all want to become Left/ Liberal / Progressives

    The Left want to atone for the real or imaginary past sins of our ancestors , but in the present , as if this would erase the past , and as if other races were paragons of umbleamished and spotless moral virtue and love for the foreigner
    This is why Leftism and historical ignorance or willfull historical self-deceit are one and the same thing. The one cannot exist without the other

Human nature demands nothing less than a complete elimination of government.

    There are two ways to acquire wealth; one was peaceful production and trade. This is called the economic means. Unfortunately, there is another way as well to get wealth. This is to seize wealth from those who have produced it. This is called the political means. The state is the organization of the political means. The state is a predatory organization, a gang of robbers.

    Omertà implies the categorical prohibition of cooperation with state authorities or reliance on its services, even when one has been victim of a crime. A person should absolutely avoid interfering in the business of others and should not inform the authorities of a crime under any circumstances. The code was mainly adopted by Sicilians and Cretans.

    Deep state is the apparatus of the state that thrives completely outside the democratic system. It is a reference to a kind of permanent ruling class and to a structure of law that is completely impervious to election noise. This is not speculative conspiracy theory. It is just a description of how government works in a nation-state.

    In an anarchist society, harmony would be obtained, not by submission to law, or by obedience to any authority, but by free arrangements concluded between the various groups, territorial and professional, freely constituted for the sake of production and consumption, as also for the satisfaction of the infinite variety of needs and aspirations of a civilized being.

    Freely constituted groups and the free arrangements concluded between them is bigger than any doctrinaire attempt to pigeonhole such groups and arrangements as business firms operating in the cash nexus or moneyless collectives.

    Anarchy is characterized above all by a faith in human creativity and agency, and an unwillingness to let a priori theoretical formulations either preempt either perceptions of the particularity and is-ness of history, or to interfere with the ability of ordinary, face-to-face groupings of people on the spot to develop workable arrangements among themselves.

    A private defense agency is a conceptual term for a type of enterprise which would provide personal protection and military defense services to individuals who would voluntarily contract for its services. Big businesses will tend to pay the bulk of the defense costs, since they stand to lose the most in the event of an attack; they would then pass on the costs to their customers, and so the costs of defense would be spread out among the whole population.

    If we really want to understand the moral grounds of economic life and, by extension, human life, we must start with the very small things: the everyday details of social existence, the way we treat our friends, enemies, and children—often with gestures so tiny that we ordinarily never stop to think about them at all. Anthropology has shown us just how different and numerous are the ways in which humans have been known to organize themselves. But it also reveals some remarkable commonalities.

    Anarchism is, above all else, human-centered. It entails a high regard for human agency and reasonableness. Rather than fitting actual human beings into some idealized paradigm, anarchists display an openness to whatever humans may actually do in exercising that agency and reasonableness. Anarchy isn’t what people will do after the Revolution, when some sort of New Anarchist Man has emerged who can be trusted with autonomy; it’s what they do right now. Anarchists are simply people who believe human beings are capable of behaving in a reasonable fashion without having to be forced to.

    At their very simplest, anarchist beliefs turn on to two elementary assumptions. The first is that human beings are, under ordinary circumstances, about as reasonable and decent as they are allowed to be, and can organize themselves and their communities without needing to be told how. The second is that power corrupts. Most of all, anarchism is just a matter of having the courage to take the simple principles of common decency that we all live by, and to follow them through to their logical conclusions. Anarchists believe that for the most part it is power itself, and the effects of power, that make people stupid and irresponsible.

    Anarchism is just the way people act when they are free to do as they choose, and when they deal with others who are equally free — and therefore aware of the responsibility to others that entails.

    An approach to the form of a hypothetical anarchist society is simple: take away all forms of domination, or of unilateral, unaccountable authority by some people over others, put people together, and see what they come up with. Anarchy itself, rather than a totalizing system, is just a way people interact with one another, and it’s all around us right now.

    The moment we stop insisting on viewing all forms of action only by their function in reproducing larger, total, forms of inequality of power, we will also be able to see that anarchist social relations and non-alienated forms of action are all around us. And this is critical because it already shows that anarchism is, already, and has always been, one of the main bases for human interaction. We self-organize and engage in mutual aid all the time. We always have.

    Anarchy is whatever people decide to do, whatever arrangements out the countless ones possible they make among themselves, when they’re not threatened with violence. A political movement that aims to bring about a genuinely free society, one where humans only enter those kinds of relations with one another that would not have to be enforced by the constant threat of violence.

    History has shown that vast inequalities of wealth, institutions like slavery, debt peonage, or wage labor, can only exist if backed up by armies, prisons, and police. Even deeper structural inequalities like racism and sexism are ultimately based on the (more subtle and insidious) threat of force.

    Anarchists thus envision a world based on equality and solidarity, in which human beings would be free to associate with one another to pursue any endless variety of visions, projects, and conceptions of what they find valuable in life.

    If you treat people like children, they will tend to act like children. The only successful method anyone has ever devised to encourage others to act like adults is to treat them as if they already are. It’s not infallible. Nothing is. But no other approach has any real chance of success. And the historical experience of what actually does happen in crisis situations demonstrates that even those who have not grown up in a culture of participatory democracy, if you take away their guns or ability to call their lawyers, can suddenly become extremely reasonable. This is all that anarchists are really proposing to do.

    Why not opt out of government control? From bootlegging to working off the books, we’ve done it many times before, and it’s getting ever-easier to exit the system. Exploit a market opportunity to help people escape government control, no matter the law. Exit an increasingly authoritarian system. In other words, to hell with arguing for more freedom, let’s take it. Embrace a willingness to defy authority.

    The ability to reduce the importance of decisions made by kleptocrats, in particular without lobbying or sloganeering, is going to become extremely important over the next ten years. We must give people the tools to reduce the influence of bad policies over their lives without getting involved in politics; the tools to peacefully opt out.

    An opt out from the political system and the burdens it imposes on us is a tempting thought. In many ways, life has never been more tolerant, cooler, safer (for kids and those trying to avoid crime), or richer. It’s more possible than ever to work from where you want to live rather than where an office is located, to be gay and safe (if not fully accepted) in ever-more locations, to enjoy cultural tastes from punk music to opera to porn without having to seek rare venues, to communicate with people and access information far and wide. But weighing on all of this like the world’s wettest blanket or a Handicapper General of joy is the institution of government, its smothering regulations and intrusive controls over our lives.

    We are now embracing not just new technology, but old-fashioned scofflawry, the right to ignore the state. We cannot choose but admit the right of the citizen to adopt a condition of voluntary outlawry. If every man has freedom to do all that he wills, provided he infringes not the equal freedom of any other man, then he is free to drop connection with the state, to relinquish its protection, and to refuse paying toward its support.

    Now that so much of the state’s pseudoprotection consists of no-knock raids, phone taps, cops boldly going where only the best of friends ought to go, and the gentle cupping of your crotch at the airport, a choice to relinquish its protection seems like a mighty fine idea to many of us.

    There’s not yet a “thanks anyway, but go to hell” checkbox on tax forms, though maybe that’ll come along in a year or two, but we can opt out on our own. You can use Bitcoin, 3D printing, telepresence, and other technologies as methods for escaping government control without the state’s consent. But those are just tools. The real key is the willingness to live life as you please, without treading on your neighbors’ rights and without knuckling under to authoritarian laws or majority preferences. Occident is a land of bootlegging, weed-smoking, defiance of gun control, shrinking tax compliance, and even underground restaurants. Without doubt we’re up to the challenge.

    Do not vote, as it encourages the bastards! A large turnout gives legitimacy to rulers and sedates the people.Voting is merely the mechanism by which the extremely corrupt political system fools hoi polloi into supporting it. No human has any right to rule and rob another. Yet government, and the voting process by which it is legalized, is in the exclusive business of ruling and robbing others.

    EU might deteriorate to the miserable level of extremely corrupt Greece. Your government is your #1 enemy. Brutal police and kangaroo courts are tools to enslave you to your government. But badges and benches do not grant extra rights. It’s your duty as a citizen to become a popopaparazzo, recording misconduct of police, prosecutors, and politicians. Use your smartphone to unmask cops and kleptocrats.

    The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing. A glaring example is my persecution by the government of Greece, which grossly violates my civil rights.

    Martin Niemöller said: First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me!

    EU practices double standards on civil rights. It’s freakish for EU to interfere in the civil rights of foreigners, but condone the abuse of my civil rights, a citizen of EU! EU should get its own house in order before lecturing others. EU should rein in barbaric Greece, the most corrupt country of Europe with prisoners of conscience, testilying police, malevolent prosecutors, perjurers, and stupidest jurists.

    Greece is an uncivil nation with kangaroo justice, overcriminalization, brutal police, huge political corruption, persecution of dissident bloggers, huge bureaucracy, huge taxation, and 23% VAT. Freakish Graecokleptocrats use the kangaroo justice as a political tool to gag political opponents. The cybercrimes unit (CCU) of the Greek police is the most disgusting cybercriminal organization, stealing computers, jailing bloggers, and spreading huge lies to the media.

    Every year, Graecokleptocrats receive myriad bribes and kickbacks. Many trains bought from Germany do not fit the rails, but they were bought just to generate bribes! In 2009, investigators of the Munich Prosecution Department uncovered a corruption affair, in which MAN has given huge bribes to Greek politicians to get large orders for overpriced trolleys. A streetcar named desire! These trolleys with huge markups are named bribes! But Greek prosecutors have started investigating this scandal just in September of 2012! One of those investigated is Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, the minister who destroyed my life. Xenogiannakopoulou also served as general secretary of Pasok, the most corrupt political party on Earth!

    I accuse the government of Greece for:

    · Persecuting me for five years

    · Stealing my life

    · Stealing my computer and files

    · Spreading lies about me on all Greek media

    · Using the kangaroo justice as a political tool

    · Postponing my trial nine times

    · Locking me in jail without toilet and pillow for a night

    · Taking away my hypertension pills

    · Making me urinate in a bottle

    · Humiliating me with handcuffs, fingerprints, and mug shots

    On October 18, 2010, a gang of six brutal cops of the violent Greek CyberCrimes Unit (CCU), a real godzilla, supervised by a dishonest prosecutor, a pathologic liar, a disgusting rat, raided my home in Athens and stole my computer, software, files, documents, and personal data. The brutal policemen locked me in jail for a night, they humiliated me with handcuffs, fingerprints, mug shots, and lies, leaked false information to the media parrots, and the corrupt Greek government initiated sham court proceedings for a stack of freakish trumped-up defamation charges! There was neither pillow nor toilet facility in my jail cell. I had to urinate in a bottle! I, a seventy-years-old man with high blood pressure, was not allowed to keep my hypertension pills with me. There was neither toilet paper nor soap in the whole CCU jail.

    JAILBIRD FOR A NIGHT

    Big brother checks the internet
    For things you criticize
    To shut your mouth on the net
    To blow minds in the sky.

    Cops busted my home
    And stole my computer
    Hard disk on their comb
    blogger to the shooter.

    They threw me in jail
    For speaking my mind
    My words are out of jail
    Revolting as a kind.

    This jail is awful
    Without pillow alone
    Urinating in a bottle
    And the girl next cell begins to moan.

    Screaming in the dark of jail
    Guards pretending they are deaf
    She is a girl, she is frail
    She is missing her Jeff.

    I can smile at the old days
    I was a handsome then
    Those were real happy days
    Happy memory lives again.

    Lesmiserables in jail
    Kleptocrats out of jail
    This is hell on Earth
    It’s shame and pain.

    Time for a real revolt
    To bring a real change
    To bring the looting to a halt
    Kleptocrats should not escape.

    Kleptocrats must be laughing
    Premier must be happy
    This is stupid and disgusting
    Government has a party.

    Harmglads sleeping before dawn
    Silence cut with a cry
    Jailbird could be reborn
    Coming back to a happy life.

    My memory leads me
    Finding strength within
    People really love me
    A new life should begin.

    Waiting for the sunrise
    Thinking of a new life
    I mustn’t give in
    A new day will begin.

    It’s been five years since the government of Greece stole my life, my computer, and my files. I have done absolutely nothing, and I am being persecuted by the Greek government without any real reason. My ordeal is against all rules of civil society and treaties that Greece has signed. Greece, a corrupt country without a functioning justice system, has gone bananas. Graecokleptocrats use the kangaroo justice as a political tool to gag political opponents. Graecokleptocrats think the laws exist to give them whatever they want! This is psoriasis of democracy, pure and simple.

    Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, sued me, and she wouldn’t show up in court! As a result, my trial has been postponed nine times so far. Xenogiannakopoulou continues to destroy my life without reason whatsoever. I could understand her vengeance, if I did something wrong. But I did absolutely nothing, and vindictive Xenogiannakopoulou barks at the wrong tree. If this is not kangaroo justice, what is it? Has a harmglad sadist minister the right to destroy an innocent citizen in cold blood? For God’s sake what kind of harmjoy is this tragedy anyhow?

  • Dervisaki

    This is the biggest bunch of baloney about Golden Dawn yet. I have seen what Golden Dawn is doing in Athens, and have friends that have been bullied, intimidated and beaten by GD. The idea that GD is “protecting” anyone is ridiculous, it is more like a mafia protection racket. Malicious neighbors call GD and pay them to harass other people they have issues with. As far as being a bulwark in “poor” neighborhoods, Athenians who are banding together and forming anarchistic committees, communes, neighborhood centers and food banks are doing much more to help the ongoing situation in Greece than ignorant, racist GD youth.

  • A NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE MADE TSIPRAS MARRY TINA!

    A near-death experience made Tsipras marry Tina! Greece’s near-death experience in July, the closure of banks and the collapse of economic activity, turned Greeks into disciples of TINA, There Is No Alternative. Tina brought Troika to town!

    Tsipras has asked hardliners of Syriza’s Left Platform to put up or shut up. Tsipras points out the internal opposition should respect the view of the internal majority. He’s confident that most MPs will prefer to stay in Syriza than vote with their feet. Tsipras says those MPs who still disagree with the majority view should resign. If they do so, then Tsipras stands to regain his parliamentary majority, which was effectively lost when more than thirty MPs staged their mutiny. If rebels don’t resign, then Tsipras will have to call an early election because of a lack of parliamentary majority. An early election seems all but certain in the next few months, unless Left Platform MPs voluntarily give up their seats in parliament and join unemployment lines.

    Two mafia godfathers are responsible for the Greek debt, Caramanlis of New Democracy and Simitis of Pasok. They keep quieter than fish, and nobody can touch them. They enjoy impunity, protected by the stupid Greek laws.

    Merkel and Schaeuble are trying to preserve the European Union, to improve the Greek fiscal structure, to punish southern European economies for huge political corruption, and to protect German taxpayers who are helping to fund the bailouts.

    The Greek people were prisoners, who after they escaped prison were immediately arrested and returned to an even smaller cell. What’s crucial is that we got a commitment for debt relief, which will take place after the first review of the program, in November.

    Socialism and huge political corruption have pushed Greece’s unemployment rate to thirty percent, and has led to homelessness, poverty, hunger, and other deprivation. Greece should adapt away from its corrupt socialist past and adopt a lean public sector and a more limber market-driven economy.

    Greece is in the midst of great turbulence, but it’s the world’s top ocean shipping country. It’s a nation of seafarers, who know how to deal with storms, and aren’t afraid to sail to distant oceans, to uncharted waters, in search of a safe harbor.

    Graecokleptocrats have made it illegal to record political corruption! People who present evidence of political corruption go to prison, not the corrupt! This is shooting the messenger, pure and simple. The political system of Greece needs a creative destruction. The impunity of Graecokleptocrats has to be abolished. Church and state should separate. The loot of Graecokleptocrats should return to the Treasury. Everything should be privatized, including schools, streets, forests, mountains, beaches, and islets. The state should not be allowed to own any property.

    Modern Greece never had democracy. It was always either kleptocracy or dictatorship. Greeks cannot govern themselves properly. Ministers of the Greek government enjoy full impunity, receiving bribes, persecuting their opponents, and gagging bloggers. I am one of their major victims. Impunity law, introduced by Türkoglu, allows Greek ministers to get bribes! Greece badly needs now either a king or a dictator to imprison all Graecokleptocrats.

    Before considering anything else, EU must do something about the freakish kangaroo justice of the cradle of kleptocracy. Greek justice is a political tool of Graecokleptocrats to intimidate their opponents and keep busy myriad lawyers.

    The brutal cybercrime unit (CCU) of the freakish Greek police, a real godzilla, is a political tool of Graecokleptocrats to terrorize their opponents. CCU is supervised by a dishonest prosecutor, a disgusting liar, and breaks into the homes of innocent citizens, stealing their computers and files, locking them in jail, and leaking false information to all media.

    Following the Law of the Least Common Denominator, the whole Fourth Reich might deteriorate to the miserable level of Greece. Greece is a special basket case, because of the unbelievable stupidity and corruption of the Greek government. Piggish Graecokleptocrats cannot be rehabilitated. EU cannot control these freaks, who steal money and lives. They stole my life at gunpoint!

    Greece has been alternately friendly and hostile to the United States. But its long unhappy history is a testament to the dangerous neighborhood of this country of 12 million inhabitants: the turmoil of the Arab spring is to its south, an ascendant Islamist and neo-Ottoman Turkey are to the east, and the ethnic powder keg in the Balkans lie to the North, capped by understandably unsympathetic European Union creditors. Only Greece’s NATO membership—a euphemism for an omnipresent American 6th fleet—has offered the Greek people both security and the opportunity to chafe at its dependence on U.S. arms.
    Greek banks face a long road before they have healthy balance sheets and are willing and able to lend. Furthermore, the business operating environment in Greece remains unattractive because of high levels of red tape, huge regulatory burden, huge political corruption, impunity of kleptocrats, an opaque legal system, political mafias, a slow and corrupt judiciary, and persecution of dissident bloggers.
    These grim prospects for economic growth are accompanied by extreme social strain, such as unemployment rate of 30%. There are two million Greeks that are out of work, half-million families that have nobody earning an income, half-million workers whose employers have not paid them for months. Most Greeks are finding it difficult to make ends meet and most young people try to find their future away from Greece. The governing coalition holds together through a survival instinct. Greece fakes it before it makes it.
    There could be no investment in Greece before the abolition of VAT, kleptocracy, impunity of kleptocrats, licensure, bribes, kickbacks, cancer of socialism, and persecution of dissident bloggers.

    Greece has five classes of people: The untouchables, the drones, the clergy, the Graecoons, and the slaves. The untouchables are the Graecokleptocrats and their kith and kin. Nobody can touch them, because Graecokleptocrats enjoy impunity. The drones are the public employees, who hold sinecures, whose main function is to collect bribes. The clergy consists of thousand priests and gay bishops, whose main function is to dumb down hoi polloi and promote Graecokleptocrats. The Graecoons are all those shipping magnates, who hold the largest commercial fleet on Earth, who bypass Graecokleptocrats. The slaves are all hard-working hoi polloi, who are harassed to death by Graecokleptocrats and the drones.

    Greece now is the most corrupt country of Europe with huge taxation, 23% VAT, unbearable bureaucracy and regulation, public employees demanding bribes for service, kangaroo justice, brutal police, and violent cybercops. Investing in Greece is money gone with the wind! Prudent investors should stay far away from Greece.

    Graecokleptocracy leads Greece to disaster. Expect many declines in GDP, a chaotic default on Greek debt, leftists and fascists in power, and degradation of Greece to a Third World country. A Greek meltdown would reverse the decades-long process of EU integration and undermine the credibility of euro. Greece’s creditors won’t get a single euro back.

    Jeremiah would agree that changing a Graecokleptocrat’s attitude and habits is as difficult as changing a leopard’s spots, mission impossible! Since the government of Greece can never be reformed, I advocate the transformation of Greek state from a single country to a confederation of city-states. Each Greek city should be a separate state. Nothing could make Greeks happier than to see the Grand Brothel of Kleptocracy on Syntagma Square in flames! Burning the Greek parliament sounds like music in their ears! The cradle of democracy has become the cradle of kleptocracy!

    The stupid measures of piggish Graecokleptocrats are killing Greeks little by little, and MPs in the Grand Brothel of Kleptocracy on Syntagma Square don’t give a damn. MPs are rich, they have everything, and Greeks have nothing and are fighting for crumbs. Greek MPs are paid 8,000 euros per month and many huge fringe benefits that include free cars, free travel, rent subsidies, free luxurious healthcare, free insurance, and generous pension in just four years. Moreover they enjoy immunity, and God only knows of their bribes and kickbacks.

    HUGE MP BENEFITS IN MISERABLE GREECE

    1. An MP’s salary is 8,000 euros.
    2. After only four years of service they get 5,000 euros as a monthly pension.
    3. Participation in committees pays 250 euros an hour. A summer sitting in parliament pays an extra 150 euros.
    4. Out of Attica MPs get 1,000 euros a month for rent, with most of them staying in lavish hotels in Athens, under a special arrangement with parliament.
    5. They receive 1,500 euros to initiate a personal office and 1,000 euros during holiday periods. Christmas and Easter holidays are a separate super-package with extra salaries.
    6. All politicians are entitled to 104 flights a year, free and unlimited travel with the public transport system and about 12,000 euros a year for travel expenses.
    7. Luxury cars, free fuel allowance of 600 euros per month; police protection, four mobile phones of the latest technology. They also receive 11,800 euros annually for fixed land lines and another 200 euros per month for their mobile phones.
    8. They are protected by immunity, free to commit crimes and receive bribes.
    9. They do not pay tax on part of their salary or pension.
    10. They are entitled to a secretary and four employees and a paid associate. To run an office each MP gets 2,263 euros per month.
    11. MPs are entitled to interest free loans as well as free professional services.
    12. Free gym, sauna, and daycare for their children.
    13. Updating their phones and gadgets.
    14. Free visits to archeological and artistic sites.
    15. Free tolls
    16. Free tickets, hotels, meals, while junketing with kith and kin.

    Valery Giscard d’Estaing admits it was a mistake to accept Greece in the European Community, because Greece is basically an Oriental country! Everyone should stand by their responsibilities and obligations. We cannot absolve Greece of this. If Greece doesn’t feel that it is able to cope, then it needs to decide for its exit. If you are a member, you have to play by the rules.

    EU might deteriorate to the miserable level of extremely corrupt Greece. Your government is your #1 enemy. Brutal police and kangaroo courts are tools to enslave you to your government. But badges and benches do not grant extra rights. It’s your duty as a citizen to become a popopaparazzo, recording misconduct of police, prosecutors, and politicians.

    This is hell on Earth
    It’s shame and pain.

    Time for a real revolt
    To bring a real change
    To bring the looting to a halt
    Kleptocrats should not escape.

    Kleptocrats must be laughing
    Premier must be happy
    This is stupid and disgusting
    Government has a party.

    Harmglads sleeping before dawn
    Silence cut with a cry
    Jailbird could be reborn
    Coming back to a happy life.

    My memory leads me
    Finding strength within
    People really love me
    A new life should begin.

    Waiting for the sunrise
    Thinking of a new life
    I mustn’t give in
    A new day will begin.

    It’s been five years since the government of Greece stole my life, my computer, and my files. I have done absolutely nothing, and I am being persecuted by the Greek government without any real reason. My ordeal is against all rules of civil society and treaties that Greece has signed. Greece, a corrupt country without a functioning justice system, has gone bananas. Graecokleptocrats use the kangaroo justice as a political tool to gag political opponents. Graecokleptocrats think the laws exist to give them whatever they want! This is psoriasis of democracy, pure and simple.

    Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, Alternate Minister of Foreign Affairs, sued me, and she wouldn’t show up in court! As a result, my trial has been postponed nine times so far. Xenogiannakopoulou continues to destroy my life without reason whatsoever. I could understand her vengeance, if I did something wrong. But I did absolutely nothing, and vindictive Xenogiannakopoulou barks at the wrong tree. If this is not kangaroo justice, what is it? Has a harmglad sadist minister the right to destroy an innocent citizen in cold blood? For God’s sake what kind of harmjoy is this tragedy anyhow?

    Glad to see the headline on this has been changed.

  • CORRUPTION, BRUTALITY, AND BARBARITY OF GREEK POLICE

    Greek policing has always been complicated, but huge corruption is making it ever more complex. Complex challenges do not have straightforward fixes, and applying tried and tested policing solutions can be ineffective. Innovation, experimentation, and adaptation are required, and the police organization often needs to learn new ways of operating to address complex concerns in Graecokleptocracy. This means that while Greek police departments certainly need effective formal leaders, they also need a culture of learning in dealing with Graecokleptocracy.

    Two policemen have been arrested on Zakynthos for trying to extort thousands of euros from store owners. The two crooks, aged 31 and 34, told owners of shops on the Ionian island that they had been sent to Zakynthos from Athens to conduct checks on local businesses. They asked for a total of 20,000 euros not to carry out the bogus inspections. They were arrested after collecting 10,540 euros in marked notes. The store owners had earlier tipped off the police. One suspect is a member of the financial police, the other an anti-terrorism officer.

    An investigation has linked the leadership of the Coast Guard of Greece as well as officers of the police and of the National Intelligence Service (EYP) to migrant trafficking rackets. Three top-ranking officers of the Coast Guard have been implicated in the operation of human smuggling rackets.

    The probe also has potential political repercussions, as it implicates a Syrizan. Officers recorded telephone conversations between the Syrizan and a member of the police’s Aliens’ Bureau who released irregular immigrants on the instructions of human traffickers. In the phone calls, reference is made to removing Panousis from his position due to concerns that he could obstruct the traffickers’ activities. The 66-year-old Syrizan was also investigated by the counter-terrorism unit in 2008 and 2009 due to suspicions that he was helping supply weapons to guerrilla groups.

    There is excessive use of force and misuse of less-lethal weapons against protesters, ill-treatment of bystanders, and attacks against photojournalists and journalists by the brutal police of extremely corrupt Greece. No action has been taken by the corrupt Greek authorities to address the culture of abuse and impunity in the stupid Greek police. Police use excessive force against peaceful protesters and spray them with chemical irritants from a close range.

    A video shows a police officer, without provocation, knocking a protester; another police officer hitting a peaceful protester with his shield, who apparently tried to intervene; and other riot police officers spraying the protesters with chemical irritants from a very close range.

    A 17 year-old female student who has asthma was walking with a friend during a demonstration, which was peaceful. She then heard a bang in front of them and riot police sprayed her and other protesters, who were standing on a pavement, twice on the face with chemical irritants: I told the police that I was feeling unwell and that I was an asthma sufferer. They looked at me and laughed….We felt like burning….Another protester saved my life by dragging me from there and getting me to a fast food shop behind Hilton hotel…

    She was transferred by her father, who was also at the demonstration, to a nearby hospital where she received medical treatment for her breathing difficulties.

    Later that evening, police including many officers of the DELTA unit on their motorbikes reportedly chased protesters in the Exarheia district of central Athens. During the clashes that ensued, testimonies speak of excessive use of force against protesters and bystanders, misuse of less lethal weapons including chemical irritants and stunt grenades, attacks against journalists and destruction of private property.

    An Erasmus student from Germany was beaten randomly by riot police in the Exarheia district where he had gone with some other students to buy food: It was peaceful but in a few minutes the place was full of demonstrators and police. We wanted to go home but the streets we normally take were blocked by police and we were scared of them because some weeks ago we had seen them beating up a man they had arrested. We looked for other streets but they were also blocked and suddenly we heard noises, there were bangs and light. We ran down another street until we noticed that it was also blocked by the police. I lost my friends and stood in a corner, hoping the police would not see me. I saw some policemen look at me and I raised my hands to show that I had no weapons. Then, between five and six officers came towards me and started beating me with their batons. I was lying on the ground, and they kept hitting me, and I was screaming from pain. Then they left me, I was lying in an embryonic position and then some other policemen came to me just to beat me up again. I had no weapons, I was no threat to anyone, I was unmasked, I did not say or provoke them in any way. The thing that makes me so angry is that they tried to hit my face all the time. They could have easily ruined my eyesight.

    After his beating, a man came to his assistance and later on he was transferred by ambulance to Evangelismos hospital. He was mainly injured in the area between and around the eyes and his nose. Five days after the attack, he still has a strong headache.

    In addition, a video shows riot police hitting with their batons a man working in a kiosk at Exarheia square after he protested that police officers had taken away some bottled waters from the kiosk without paying.

    Antonis Diniakos, a journalist from VICE, was attacked by DELTA police officers in the district of Exarheia, while he was recording with his mobile phone an incident of police intimidating some people in the area. The journalist was accompanied by Thanasis Troboukis, VICE’S editor in chief and Lefteris Bidelas, a colleague from Ethnos newspaper, and had gone to the area to cover clashes between police and protesters. Diniakos was recording the intimidation incident with his mobile phone, when a DELTA police officer hit his leg with the front wheel of his motorbike, seemingly in order to intimidate him. The journalist said that as a result of the pain he felt he pushed with his leg the front wheel of the bike and protested over his treatment. Between two and three police officers then abandoned their motorbikes, ran towards him and threw him to the ground. While he was pushed to the ground, one of the police officers fell on him and immobilized him by holding his throat with his hand and he started swearing at him. The police officers left Diniakos alone only when he and his two colleagues stated that they were accredited journalists. The journalist said that he still suffers from pain on his leg and that the doctors who treated him in the hospital found cuts on his hand and bruises on his back.

    Constantina was among a group of forty students who stood outside the Athens Law School entrance on Massalias Street around 8 am in order to protest over a university lock-out. Suddenly, riot police started to push them with their shields and kick the students in order to remove them from Massalias Street.

    Later that morning, two students sustained serious injuries in an unprovoked attack by riot police in a street near the Athens Law School. Yiannis, one of the two, was attacked by a riot police unit from behind while he was talking on his mobile phone walking along a street next to the Athens University Rectorship Building which is near the Athens Law School. He was beaten and kicked by riot police, he was thrown on the ground, and when he attempted to stand up he was hit on his eye with a baton. Some other students, he was walking with were also attacked by riot police at the same time. Yiannis suffered cuts and bruises all over his body and an injury on his eye, which was treated at the nearby Eye Hospital.

    Police left the scene without providing any medical assistance to the injured students, who were subsequently transferred to the hospital by other students who had run to assist them.

    An attack took place at the end of the route of a student demonstration as the students had arrived at the Athens Polytechnic school on Stournara Street and forced open the locked gates in order to have a meeting about further actions over a lock-out. While many students managed to enter the university seeking protection, those who did not were subjected to police beatings and were sprayed with chemical irritants.

    Policing demonstrations can be challenging and law enforcement officials are sometimes required to use lawful force to maintain order and prevent crime. However, in carrying out their duties, they must adhere to international law and standards. On the use of force, Article 3 of the UN Code of Conduct for Law Enforcement Officials states that law enforcement officials may use force only when strictly necessary and to the extent required for the performance of their duty. The use of force during non-violent public assemblies should be avoided. Where necessary, it should be restricted to the minimum required for the achievement of the legitimate objective, and in compliance with the principle of proportionality.

    Toxic chemical are often described as non-lethal but in fact can have lethal effects so are better described as less-lethal weapons. Serious and unwarranted injuries can also result from the use of chemical irritants. The irritants rapidly produce disabling physical effects through sensory irritation of the eyes and upper respiratory tract which are supposed to usually disappear within a relatively short time. Physical effects of chemical irritants can include tearing of the eyes, breathing difficulties, coughing, choking sensations, chemical burns, vomiting, suffocation, severe allergic reaction, and blistering of the skin, depending on the chemical mixtures and concentrations.

    Thus, chemical irritants should not be used in high concentration. Such weapons can have indiscriminate effects when sprayed or fired in canister over a wide area and can cause panic leading to stampeding so should not be used where people are confined in an area. There are certain contexts in which such weapons should never be used. These include as a means of dispersing a peaceful assembly, where there are older people, children or other who may have difficulty in moving away to avoid the chemicals, or in confined spaces.

    Three policemen kidnapped and assaulted a 35-year-old man. One of the policemen works at Athens security police headquarters, another is stationed at the Saint Dimitrios precinct in southern Athens and the other at a police station in Paiania, east of the capital. The three held their victim against his will at the Paiania precinct, handcuffed him, and beat him.
    Greek police have tortured four robbery suspects. The young men, aged between 20 and 24, were hooked and severely beaten during detention. While images of the suspects published by the media show extensive bruising, the police released photographs of all four, digitally manipulated in an effort to erase bruises and cuts, causing a public outcry.

    Fifteen protesters were arrested in Athens. The victims were tortured during detention at the Attica General Police Directorate. Police officers slapped them and spat on them, burnt their arms with a cigarette lighter and kept them awake all night with torches and lasers. A Guardian report on the incident led the Greek Police Minister, to accuse the British newspaper of spreading lies and threaten it with legal actions. However, professional forensic examination of the fifteen protesters proved that the torture had indeed taken place. When, the next day, two Greek journalists commented on the Guardian report on the national television channel, they were fired.

    Police brutality is on the rise. Greek citizens have opposed kleptocracy with general strikes, demonstrations, and occupation of squares. The answer was excessive police force, tear gas, injuries, and unjustified detention of protesters.

    Five policemen are working at a bar in Mikrolimano of Piraeus, the port of Athens, where a 31-year-old Albanian opened fire with an AK-47, resulting in 15 people being injured. Two policemen who have been linked to prostitution rings own the bar.
    Psychologist Yannis Kafkas suffered an almost fatal head injury when a police officer hit him with one of the fire extinguishers that the riot police carry with them. He spent twenty days in intensive care and had to undergo emergency head surgery. Journalist Manolis Kipraios, while covering protests against kleptocracy, suffered from permanent hearing loss after a member of riot police fired a stun grenade against him.

    Two hundred thousand people gathered outside the parliament, following the public suicide of a 77 year old pensioner. The protests ended up in clashes with the riot police amidst clouds of tear gas and flames. Photojournalist Marios Lolos received severe head blows by the police forces and had to go through surgeries for head injuries. Journalist Rena Maniou was severely beaten by security forces while Dimitris Trimis, the head of the Greek journalist association ESEA, broke his arm after he was violently pushed and kicked by the riot police.

    Protesters were used by the riot police as human shields. A photograph circulated on the internet shows a female protester in handcuffs ahead of policemen as people threw stones against the officers. Of all cases, not a single one has been prosecuted.

    Police brutality has a long history in Greece, and even the murder of teenagers by the police forces is not unprecedented. Sideris Isidoropoulos, a 16 year old teenager and activist, was killed by police forces while putting up campaign posters on a public building. Riot police has beaten to death 20 year old protester Stamatina Kanelopoulou. 15 year old Michalis Kaltezas, was shot in the head by a policeman during clashes following protests in Athens. The police officer was acquitted of the charges. A police officer shot dead 15 year old Alexis Grigoropoulos, during demonstrations in Athens downtown. The police officer took aim at the boy and shot him at the chest. The murder of the 15 year old sparkled nationwide riots in the country.

    What makes the situation in Greece even more alarming is the fact that most cases of excessive police and state brutality go unreported. As the majority of Greek media are owned by the country’s oligarch families that control the financial sector and have strong ties with kleptocrats, journalists prefer to keep quiet in the interests of holding on to their paychecks. Greece descends into further chaos amid mounting political corruption. The Greek government fails its own people and is unable to ensure justice and basic rights for its citizen.

    EU might deteriorate to the miserable level of extremely corrupt Greece. Your government is your #1 enemy. Brutal police and kangaroo courts are tools to enslave you to your government. But badges and benches do not grant extra rights. It’s your duty as a citizen to become a popopaparazzo, recording misconduct of police, prosecutors, and politicians. Use your smartphone to unmask cops and kleptocrats.

    The political philosopher Edmund Burke once remarked that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good folks to do nothing. A glaring example is my persecution by the government of Greece, which grossly violates my civil rights.

    Martin Niemöller said: First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me!

    EU practices double standards on civil rights. It’s freakish for EU to interfere in the civil rights of foreigners, but condone the abuse of my civil rights, a citizen of EU! EU should get its own house in order before lecturing others. EU should rein in barbaric Greece, the most corrupt country of Europe with prisoners of conscience, testilying police, malevolent prosecutors, perjurers, and stupidest jurists.

    Greece is an uncivil nation with kangaroo justice, overcriminalization, brutal police, huge political corruption, persecution of dissident bloggers, huge bureaucracy, huge taxation, and 23% VAT. Freakish Graecokleptocrats use the kangaroo justice as a political tool to gag political opponents. The cybercrimes unit (CCU) of the Greek police is the most disgusting cybercriminal organization, stealing computers, jailing bloggers, and spreading huge lies to the media.

    Every year, Graecokleptocrats receive myriad bribes and kickbacks. Many trains bought from Germany do not fit the rails, but they were bought just to generate bribes! In 2009, investigators of the Munich Prosecution Department uncovered a corruption affair, in which MAN has given huge bribes to Greek politicians to get large orders for overpriced trolleys. A streetcar named desire! These trolleys with huge markups are named bribes! But Greek prosecutors have started investigating this scandal just in September of 2012! One of those investigated is Mariliza Xenogiannakopoulou, the minister who destroyed my life. Xenogiannakopoulou also served as general secretary of Pasok, the most corrupt political party on Earth!

    I accuse the government of Greece for:

    · Persecuting me for five years

    · Stealing my life

    · Stealing my computer and files

    · Spreading lies about me on all Greek media

    · Using the kangaroo justice as a political tool

    · Postponing my trial nine times

    · Locking me in jail without toilet and pillow for a night

    · Taking away my hypertension pills

    · Making me urinate in a bottle

    · Humiliating me with handcuffs, fingerprints, and mug shots

    On October 18, 2010, a gang of six brutal cops of the violent Greek CyberCrimes Unit (CCU), a real godzilla, supervised by a dishonest prosecutor, a pathologic liar, a disgusting rat, raided my home in Athens and stole my computer, software, files, documents, and personal data. The brutal policemen locked me in jail for a night, they humiliated me with handcuffs, fingerprints, mug shots, and lies, leaked false information to the media parrots, and the corrupt Greek government initiated sham court proceedings for a stack of freakish trumped-up defamation charges! There was neither pillow nor toilet facility in my jail cell. I had to urinate in a bottle! I, a seventy-years-old man with high blood pressure, was not allowed to keep my hypertension pills with me. There was neither toilet paper nor soap in the whole CCU jail.

    JAILBIRD FOR A NIGHT

    Big brother checks the internet
    For things you criticize
    To shut your mouth on the net
    To blow minds in the sky.

    Cops busted my home
    And stole my computer
    Hard disk on their comb
    blogger to the shooter.

    They threw me in jail
    For speaking my mind
    My words are out of jail
    Revolting as a kind.

    This jail is awful
    Without pillow alone
    Urinating in a bottle
    And the girl next cell begins to moan.

    Screaming in the dark of jail
    Guards pretending they are deaf
    She is a girl, she is frail
    She is missing her Jeff.

    I can smile at the old days
    I was a handsome then
    Those were real happy days
    Happy memory lives again.

    Lesmiserables in jail
    Kleptocrats out of jail
    This is hell on Earth
    It’s shame and pain.

    Time for a real revolt
    To bring a real change
    To bring the looting to a halt
    Kleptocrats should not escape.

    Kleptocrats must be laughing
    Premier must be happy

  • “What Greece needs is less Europe and more entrepreneurship”

    What Europe, and the rest of the globe, needs are new, non-Marxist co-opted, political parties…

    The collapse of the EU is slated after the Ukraine emergency* is taken care of, according to the Marxist plan, since the EU collapse is to be used to form a new union with Russia (from the Atlantic to Vladivostok), a union that can’t take place until (1) the Ukraine situation is calmed, where Russian troops pull out of Crimea and eastern Ukraine; and (2) the image of Russia improves. The European Central Bank (along with the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan) is sabotaging economic productivity via low interest rates policies. Low interest rates prevent the formation of large capitalized loans for productive investments, since the expected return to the lender–the expected return being based on the interest rate as determined by the central bank–would be too low to cover the large capitalized loan. The economic sabotage policy the West (and Japan) is experiencing is a by-product of the Marxist co-option of the West’s political parties/institutions,** one purpose for the sabotage being to initiate the next major operation under the USSR & Allies’ Long-Range Policy– the collapse of the European Union, to be replaced by a new union with Russia.

    Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and Soviet minister of foreign affairs Eduard Shevardnadze on the upcoming new European union with Russia:

    “Editor’s Note: The phrases ‘From the Atlantic to the Urals’, ‘From the Atlantic to Vladivostok’ and ‘From Vancouver to Vladivostok’ are interchangeable in the strategists’ lexicon. In the course of his Nobel Peace Prize Lecture, delivered in Oslo in June 1992, Gorbachev said: ‘Our [sic] vision of the European space from the Atlantic to the Urals is not that of a closed system. Since it includes the Soviet Union [sic], which reaches to the shores of the Pacific, it goes beyond nominal geographical boundaries’. Note that Gorbachev, who had been out of office for six months, referred to the Soviet Union, not Russia. In an interview on Moscow Television on 19 November 1991, Eduard Shevardnadze continued speaking as though he was still Soviet Foreign Minister: ‘I think that the idea of a Common European Home, the building of a united Europe, and I would like to underline today, of great Europe, the building of Great Europe, great, united Europe, from the Atlantic to the Urals, from the Atlantic to Vladivostok, including all our territory, most probably a European-Asian space, this project is inevitable. I am sure that we will come to building a united military space as well. To say more precisely: we will build a united Europe, whose security will be based on the principles of collective security. Precisely, collective security’. These statements by key implementers of the strategy reflect the central strategic objective of asserting ‘irreversible’ Russian/Soviet hegemony over Eurasia, thus establishing the primary geographical component of the intended World Government.” — ‘The Perestroika Deception’, by KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn.

    http://www.spiritoftruth.org/The_Perestroika_Deception.pdf

    …and here’s more on the upcoming “Atlantic to Vladivostok” union…

    https://web.archive.org/web/20140210090314/http://www.russkiymir.ru/russkiymir/en/publications/interview/interview0004.html

    …and here’s Vladimir Putin in 2012 (the year before the Ukraine emergency erupted, placing a hold on the EU collapse operation) pushing the new union with Europe…

    “Russia is an inalienable and organic part of Greater Europe and European civilization. Our citizens think of themselves as Europeans. We are by no means indifferent to developments in united Europe.

    That is why Russia proposes moving toward the creation of a common economic and human space from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean – a community referred by Russian experts to as “the Union of Europe,” which will strengthen Russia’s potential and position in its economic pivot toward the “new Asia.”‘

    http://valdaiclub.com/politics/39300.html

    When the new “Atlantic to Vladivostok” union materializes, Communist strategists will have achieved two goals, (1) the further isolation of the United States in the world; and (2) the disbanding of NATO.
    ——————————-
    *Approximately 20% of the Marxist front group Islamic [sic] State are Ukraine Ground Forces (UGF) posing as Islamic [sic] State, the UGF mission in Iraq being to cut Iraq’s oil exports–once American ground forces return to Iraq–for the purpose of assisting Russia’s oil based economy, thereby allowing Russia to complete her military modernization program. The Marxist governments of the West and Marxist media* are spinning the reality of what’s taking place in the Ukraine and Iraq, where in the Ukraine the anti-Communist Ukrainian people are waging a war against the Marxist Kiev government and mis-named “Ukrainian separatists” who are really Russian Spetsnaz/Guards Airborne troops assisting the Marxist Kiev government suppress the anti-Communist revolution raging throughout the Ukraine. The revolution could only have occurred thanks to the weakened security apparatus within the Ukraine, where a critical number of Ukraine Ground Forces are currently in Iraq preparing to assist Russia’s oil based economy by destroying Iraq’s oil production.

    With the weakened Marxist security throughout the Ukraine, due to the UGF presence in Iraq, the Ukrainian population destroyed, to date, over 700 statues to the reviled Vladimir Lenin, and other Marxist “heroes”, statues that were supposed to have been destroyed in 1991 if the collapse of the USSR were real and not the strategic ruse it is. Currently approximately 1,400 statues to the butcher of Ukrainian nationalism/Orthodoxy remain standing throughout the Ukraine, rubbing salt into the wounds of every non-Marxist Ukrainian (95% of the population) that is forced to view such monuments to the infamous butcher.

    Russian regular forces are also in the eastern Ukraine (attired in UGF uniforms) fighting the Ukrainian freedom fighters, losing to combat operations approximately 25,000 soldiers, which is why on January 2 Vladimir Putin was ordered by his superiors in the Russian Communist Party to sign a four-year old piece of legislation that allows foreigners who speak Russian to join the Russian military…

    http://www.rferl.org/content/russia-foreigners-serving-in-military/26779601.html

    The following is a discovery I made last month regarding the fake collapse of the USSR…

    When Soviet citizens were liberated from 74 years of Marxist oppression on December 26, 1991 there were ZERO celebrations throughout the USSR, proving (1) the “collapse” of the USSR was a strategic ruse; and (2) the political parties of the West were already co-opted by Marxists, otherwise the USSR (and East Bloc nations) couldn’t have gotten away with the ruse.

    ZERO celebrations, as the The Atlantic article inadvertently informs us…

    http://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2011/12/20-years-since-the-fall-of-the-soviet-union/100214/

    For more on this discovery see my blog…

    https://sites.google.com/site/deanjackson60/

    Conclusion:

    The West will form new political parties where candidates are vetted for Marxist ideology, the use of the polygraph to be an important tool for such vetting. Then the West can finally liberate the globe of vanguard Communism.

    **The failed socialist inspired and controlled pan-European revolutions that swept the continent in 1848 thought Marxists and socialists a powerful lesson, that lesson being they couldn’t win overtly, so they adopted the tactic of infiltration of the West’s political parties/institutions. In the case of the United States…(continue reading at DNotice)…

    https://sites.google.com/site/deanjackson60/now-you-see-me-now-you-don-t

    Now you know why not one political party in the West requested verification of the collapse of the USSR, and the media failed to alert your attention to this fact, including the “alternative” media. When determining whether the “former” USSR is complying with arms control treaties, what does the United States do to confirm compliance? Right, the United States sends into the “former” USSR investigative teams to VERIFY compliance, yet when it’s the fate of the West that’s at stake should the collapse of the USSR be a ruse, what does the United States do to confirm the collapse? Nothing!

    The fraudulent “collapse” of the USSR (and East Bloc) couldn’t have been pulled off until both political parties in the United States (and political parties elsewhere in the West) were co-opted by Marxists, which explains why verification of the “collapse” was never undertaken by the West, such verification being (1) a natural administrative procedure (since the USSR wasn’t occupied by Western military forces); and (2) necessary for the survival of the West. Recall President Reagan’s favorite phrase, “Trust, but verify”.

    It gets worse–the “freed” Soviets and West also never (1) de-Communized the Soviet Armed Forces of its Communist Party officer corps, which was 90% officered by Communist Party members; and (2) arrested/de-mobilized the 6-million vigilantes that assisted the Soviet Union’s Ministry of the Interior and police control the populations of the larger cities during the period of “Perestroika” (1986-1991)!

    There can be no collapse of the USSR (or East Bloc nations) without…

    Verification, De-Communization and De-mobilization.

    The West never verified the collapse of the USSR because no collapse occurred, since if a real collapse had occurred the West would have verified it, since the survival of the West depends on verification. Conversely, this proves that the political parties of the West were co-opted by Marxists long before the fraudulent collapse of the USSR, since the survival of the West depends on verification.

    The above means that the so-called “War on Terror” is an operation being carried out by the Marxist co-opted governments of the West in alliance with the USSR and other Communist nations, the purpose being to (1) destroy the prominence of the West in the eyes of the world, where the West is seen (i) invading nations without cause; (ii) causing chaos around the globe; and (iii) killing over one-million civilians and boasting of torture; (2) close off non-Russian supplies of oil for export, thereby increasing the price of oil, the higher price allowing oil exporting Russia to maintain economic stability while she modernizes and increases her military forces; (3) destroy the United States Armed Forces via the never-ending “War on Terror”; the ultimate purpose of the aforementioned to (4) bring about the demise of the United States in the world, opening up a political void to be filled by a new pan-national entity composed of Europe and Russia (replacing the European Union), a union “From the Atlantic to Vladivostok”; which will (5) see the end of NATO.

    Now you know how Bolshevik Russia survived in 1917; how the West “lost” China to the Communists in 1949; why the Eisenhower administration turned a deaf ear to the anti-Communist Hungarian uprising in 1956; why the Eisenhower administration in 1959 was indifferent to the Castro brothers’ Communist fidelity, actually used the CIA to overthrow the Batista government; why the Nixon administration abandoned Taiwan for Communist China, and signed treaties/provided economic aid to the USSR; why the Nixon administration refused to tell the American People that over 50% of North Vietnamese NVA regiments were actually Chinese People’s Liberation Army soldiers (attired in NVA uniforms, and proving that the Sino/Soviet Split was a ruse, as KGB defector Major Anatoliy Golitsyn told the West back in 1962), thereby (1) ensuring the Vietnam War would be lost; (2) destroying the prominence of the United States abroad and at home; (3) breeding distrust between the American people and their government; and (4) securing Communist victories in Southeast Asia. Working in the background within the political parties of the United States and Great Britain were Marxist agents doing their best to (1) ensure the survival of Communist nations when they popped up; and (2) sabotage any policies that would bring down a Communist nation. That’s why after the fake collapses of the East Bloc nations and USSR there was no mandatory Western verification process to ensure the Communists weren’t still in control.
