For Greece: "Nothing Is Gonna Be Alright"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

During a week in which Americans are supposed to give thanks, we thought this inside look at the reality on the streets of Greece was worthwhile comprehending. From the May 2011 Syntagma Square uprising to "the 'firesale' of their country, their labor rights, and their livelihoods to corrupt domestic elites and foreign financial interests" the brief documentary follows the dramatic portrait of a country veering to the brink of collapse - and the people who choose to struggle to build a new world from the ruins of the old. "For [the elites] Greece is a guinea pig, to find out up to what point they can 'milk' [us]" is how one narrator describes the situation, adding that "they are refusing to see the reality [saying] it's not happening, it's not happening, it's not happening, everything is gonna be alright; Nothing is gonna be alright" as "loans enslave people." Utopia remains on the horizon...

 

The Greek people are suffering from two contradictory collective feelings: Fear and Rage.

Some disturbing images and deep introspection here...

English subtitles but mostly English spoken...

Technically, fear and rage are not contradictory, nor are they "collective feelings." Like all feelings, they are within the individual.

How many times do thousands of economists have to say leave the Euro, go bankrupt, and restrict national government spending to 18% of the GDP.

People all over the world need to understand government is a luxury, not a way to make a living.  Government is a drag on the economy.  The smaller government is the more money in the private sector that will go to people who will produce things other people want.

I wish the Greeks all the best.

Please correct any errors you see below with my limited understanding of the situation:

It seems to me that the Eurozone, like the United States, is a Federation. There is no constitutional mechanism for a country to voluntarily leave. If this is correct, then in order for a country to leave, a constitutional amendment would need to be passed, which would require 100 percent support from all member governments.

It is not a simple thing for the majority of people in one country to say "let's leave" and it is done, just like a State in the United States cannont unilaterly choose to leave. The last time States tried to voluntarily leave the United States, they were defeated in a long war and forced to remain within the Federation.

because most of the greek people, like most of the people in the U.S., are not able or willing to see reality for what it is (yet)...  the reality is that most of the world's governments are firmly under the control of a small cabal that has used the central bank system to take control from the inside, and destroy any country that stands in the way.   these psychopaths see humans as cattle, and have very dark plans in mind should their bid for total control be sucessful.   yes fighting back is going to be ugly and you may suffer....   but, if humanity does not stand up...  it will be far worse.

This video gives you the exact reasoning. Other than the old man, these people are neutered. They are sheep. They are being led to slaughter, and told that their braying is a true "struggle" against their masters. They use words like "fight" and "changed" and "struggle", but it was all so much mental masterbation. 

Greece may not turn into Nazi Germany, but they could turn into Mussolini Italy.

If I got the story straight, George Papandreou was "replaced" with Lucas Papademos (Bankster) after Papa wanted a referendum vote of the sheeple. The EU said NO and Papa was shown the door. The day that happened was the day the Greeple lost everything, especially any degree of self respect.  Now they snivel over ancient history and Ouzo.

Because they're still clamoring for a free lunch...  they're still desperate to keep the perpetual motion machine churning.

Civil war happens when enough people finally decide that the free lunch doesn't exist and that in order to have any chance at autonomy and what they deem as liberty, they decide to roll their own.  Of course, the irony, is that in setting up a successor government, they'll be sowing the seeds of history...  to repeat itself upon maturity...  in the end, justification being that it simply feels better to have a different person whipping them.

Greece had an ancient method of implementing law(s):

"Anyone wishing to propose a new law had to do so while standing on a public platform with a rope around their neck.  If the law was passed, the rope was removed.  If the law was voted down, the platform was removed."

If Greece wants to follow the path of Iceland it will have to do much more than refuse payment and put bankers on trial. It will also have to be disciplined and work productively like the Icelanders. If Greeks that they can go back to their corrupted system and their debt fuelled life styles, they are sorely mstaken.

That doesn't surprise me - the mainstream media doesn't even seem to care that there is a chance our President let four Americans, government employees in fact, die horrific deaths in Benghazi...while we had military personal ready and more than willing to do something about it.

They either go out of their way to not report things like this, or they are too busy kissing Barry's ass to notice that he really is just another politician and not the second coming of Christ.

If the supply of money can be loaned at will then that supply of loaned money controls the distribution of power. Loaned money by its nature is destructive unless lending it does not include the intention to control. Central banks are destructive and primative. They are not appropriate for today's world and are very dangerous because they have failed to adapt to the technological world we live in. Also, they are run by very primative groups of people (groups of undifferentiated individuals.)

MDB is right. The more food you eat, the more you need to eat just to stave off the hunger. Just like debt - and society has a distinct inability to go on a diet. Suspiciously like the vast majority of the population is obese, so is the collective thought processes of the Western world.

Once gas prices go up suddenly, which seems very likely to happen at some point fairly soon, I think we'll begin to see the feds show their cards.

 

All it will take is for Syria/Gaza/Iran to not-go-as-planned, and suddenly no one can afford to fly or fill the tank and everything but gmo corn costs 50% more than it did the month before.

 

We might start seeing a little bit of Greece at New Jersey gas stations.

Yes. One of the main reasons people will be caught unaware by any collapse is because the bears spend all day every day crying wolf & convincing you the sky is falling. It never does, until the day they are right because booms and busts are inevitable in this economy. With bulls blowing smoke up your ass and bears crying wolf day-in-day-out, there is still no way for an amateur (or most professionals) to know what to do from moment-to-moment. Sometimes it's better to unlearn what you know and realize we live under an omnipotent global politburo who will get whatever it desires. The trick is reading between the lines and figuring out what they really desire.

When are people going to accept responsibility for taking loans?  For getting credit to fuel speculative endeavors?

There is this complete dissociation of what is deemed a speculative endeavor in popular culture and what really is a speculative endeavor...  if you borrow to buy a house, then you're a speculator....  if you borrow to go to school, then you're a speculator...  see the common theme here?

In the end, it's simply one big argument from popularity or authority...  more people speculate by doing X, therefor, it's not really speculating.

I don't need to understand virtually any intricacy of the economy to understand that my income stream for 30 years is not necessarily guaranteed...  and that over the course of 30 years, there can be substantial swings in economies.  In other words, if I bring home $3k/mo...  and my mortgage is $2,000/mo...  then I necessarily know (from a rudimentary understanding of math) that if I slip, at all, then I'm toast and, likely, any appreciation along with it.  If I know all my neighbors are in the same boat, then what does that say for the stability of my neighborhood?  Town?  County?  State?

There is some degree of learned helplessness...  but that is a phenomenon that springs up only after willful ignorance has run its course.

Bankruptcy makes a difference only to the tyrants hanging on to their privileged tax free existence.

It makes no difference to the proles who are forced to suffer a truly miserable existence sustaining those entrenched at the top as the Ponzi they designed collapses. The only question is what is the public threshold of misery.

The privileged class has already demonstrated its willingness to act ruthlessly in the name of preserving staus quo. They are all safely ensconced in their mountain villas, yachts and island getaways.

It is only a matter of time before they cut their deal with Golden Dawn. Then you will see something extremely disquieting.

Same story different timeframe.  Always gonna be some useless braindead eater that wants to engage in nothing but hedonism every day of his life at the expense of others.  You borrowed the fucking Jew confetti you little shits, now its time to pay up!!!!  And enough of the woe is me shit.  And yes the Bankers need a little lesson in humility as well.    This world is hurling towards reality kicking and screaming.  We are going back to the days of (You don't produce, you don't fucking eat)....It's that simple.  Except you might get a crumb from the charity of others cause they really feel sorry for your poor Godless soul.  I will give of my own to those who truly need it.  Needs and Wants though have seem to have taken on synonomous meanings in this world unfortunately.  This corruption starts with the deluded individual that thinks that he/she can get something for nothing all the days of his life and use the power of Government and Democracy  to take the Earned and Re-distribute it to those that have Not Earned.

Blaming Greek people for loans taken out by their leaders at the behest of their Bankster masters is hardly fair, as some here seem to be doing.   We all have the same leaders indebting us as we speak and we're all gonna be in Greece's shoes sooner or later, at which time we can either be ready to help our waking countrymen to understand what's happening, or laugh at their stupidity for not seeing it coming while we were stacking.    'Told ya so' is fun briefly, except now you've got the Gov and the flock looking for your stash. Hell the Gov will probably blame your smartass for the crisis.  Be kind to the newly awakened - they just got there a little slower than you.

I love it how they talk about being tough on the police , yet not of them bring a gun or defend themselves at the demonstrations. Talk about getting into a gunfight with a water pistol. Only the old man makes sense- he KNOWS - been there DONE IT.

Matt,

I think you're spot on from a legal standpoint.  From the functional perspective a full Greek exit from the Eurozone will probably show a mixed reaction from other member states (ranging from "good riddance" to "hey, wait a minute") but I don't think it will ultimately result in much.  However, how bondholders can affect the remaining states to take actions against Greece remains to be seen.  It doesn't seem to be in the remaining states' best interest to have them stay (up to and including by force) but we've certainly seen a lot of irrational behavior up to this point.  To me, a Greek exit is inevitable, it now depends on when.  Do they exit sooner and become a standout, deal with all the legal wrangling, or do they exit along with everyone else when the whole currency collapses.  Either they can be the trigger for a Eurozone dissolution or they will be part of the final act.  I'm guessing (and it is just that, a guess) that if Greece were to leave and showed any sign of real recovery within 6 mos- 1 year Portugal would be close behind, then maybe it will all start to unravel.  Of course, I keep putting this all in the context of what *I* would do and I don't have the same corrupt interests as many of their monied leadership does.

I think some of these people have the right solution.  Just walk away from the system and don't support it, AT ALL.
