A Tale Of Financial Fascism By Shakespeare

Tyler Durden's picture

To be or not to be (in the Euro), that should be the question on the Greek people's minds and not whether 'tis nobler to suffer the slings (fiscal occupation) and arrows (sovereignty destruction) of an outraged 'fiscally fascist' Troika. As Rodney Shakespeare so eloquently explains in this Russia Today interview, the projected trajectory of the debt/GDP for Greece is nonsense and are simply 'manipulations that justify the banking occupation of Greece'. In words that should ring true to any reader of the Bard, Rodney goes on to highlight the terrible plight that is to come to generations of Greeks citing the 'whole thing as a fraud'. The brave and highly inventive Greek people can succeed if they are not forced to bailout the banks and instead leave the Euro; dismissing the office of the financial fascists that will soon occupy the nation. Strong (and emotional) words describe why the IMF/EU/ECB bloc is so keen to maintain the status quo that is clearly crumbling at their feet as perhaps they would do well to remember the final words of this Hamlet soliloquy: 'be all my sins remembered'.

I keep wondering if the Greek situation is like a harbinger of how things will go down when the first state defaults on its debt in the U.S.

The most tragic part of this post is the use of RT as a source. Very sad...... no hidden agenda there. I was proud of the Voice of America, of Radio Free Europe. Beware RT and its agenda.... the means may be effective, as we proved; but trust your heart, Natural Law, in determining the end. Oh................ all you jack asses that think you sound smart quoting Shakespear; remember he wrote, in his day, in vernacular, almost tabloid style. Y'all think 'cause ya talk fancy that y'r house don't have a vent stack.

The quotes may not be made to sound smart, but to show that we've been here before (many times). If we all can only realize that
All's well .. well, you know -- won't be fooled again.

I'm way down the blog, but question.   Did the IMF put money in to the this sink-hole, and if so, how much, and of that amount, did the US contribute its 17.7%,    Just to rub salt in our wounds as to how much the US was fleeced to keep European banks afloat.

I know, its looking like its all semantic exercise, they throw 100's of billions around, just to let you know none of it is worth anything.

my shadow walks me through thy futures past

whilst, the creased edge of twilight eclipse my one refuge... that of solemn peace no more

tis it right to exist on the fringe of humanity, wallowing in cold-hearted thoughts of despair... chilling frost-bitten queries spooning unfettered equanimity

the intrinsic burning... that thy rhetorical malice gratuitously bestows, inflames ones tongue... unable to gorge on thy evil dealt, but best left unspoken for thy devils fare is but a two-edge sword, lest his contract be taken in earnest... for austerity knows dirge... be it, only his scorn

ye... the hellish frost thy fringe of darkness and despair shall incarnate... indeed, making my path seem wretched and thorn`d... but the one known, only as Zeus, has not forsaken his children... never to be usurped by this cyclops necrosis insanity... these trolling flatlanders that suckle upon the weak 

indeed... Zeus will align the grecian sun, for his subjects are his embodiment... his source of equilibrium that gravitates always his laws of justice and wisdom be done

this fringe... shall be withered no more, for this eclipse will thaw this once cold shadow, as I feel my hot blood flowing, bestowing thou meaning of life thought lost... forever past, once more

for darkness has but one side that shalt not upset... this everlasting burning sphere within... for the great Zeus has weighted the whole as one... yet the past and the future were always but a moment, fused in the present... such is our lifetime, but only the blink of an eye from the almighty greek Zeus as eternity calms his minions for millenniums to come

First Collector: At this festive time of year, Mr. Scrooge, it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the poor and destitute.
Ebenezer: Are there no prisons?
First Collector: Plenty of prisons.
Ebenezer: And the union workhouses - are they still in operation?
First Collector: They are. I wish I could say they were not.
Ebenezer: Oh, from what you said at first I was afraid that something had happened to stop them in their useful course. I'm very glad to hear it.
First Collector: I don't think you quite understand us, sir. A few of us are endeavoring to buy the poor some meat and drink, and means of warmth.
Ebenezer: Why?
First Collector: Because it is at Christmastime that want is most keenly felt, and abundance rejoices. Now what can I put you down for?
Ebenezer: Huh! Nothing!
Second Collector: You wish to be anonymous?
Ebenezer: [firmly, but calmly] I wish to be left alone. Since you ask me what I wish sir, that is my answer. I help to support the establishments I have named; those who are badly off must go there.
First Collector: Many can't go there.
Second Collector: And some would rather die.

I'm new here, so forgive my ignorance. Is Greece's debt crisis solely due to bank fraud and the country looking to bail out the banks? I had thought it was due to a bloated entitlement system, but that doesn't seem very likely after checking out this post!

If there's a good roundup on how they got here that is recommended, I'd appreciate being pointed in that direction.

How many of the elite wealthy in the US pay their taxes? Well,... in Greece the proletariat had figured it out along time ago [whereas the sheeple in amerika keep paying, and paying, and paying forever more]! So they tell the Wealthy-Fucks in Greece,... you pay -I pay. It's that simple. 

just one of the problems

Just hang out a while longer, you got here just in time for the big show!  Search Greece in archives to get caught up.  Governance is complicated, corrupt goverance is at least doubly so.

SaulGood's picture

You guys are funny. I've been here a few weeks and most of the Greece posts are very inside-joke heavy. Like, you have to already know why the debt was racked up because the post is just about Germany trying to annex Greece itself (which was pretty hilarious to me). I'll poke around the archives a bit, I'm loving this site.

Loan sharks knew that if they took the dollars printing machines under their control they could suffocate the world ...they could initially suffocate USA and after taking the USA from the Americans, they could move and suffocate the whole world and take the countries from their people.

FED printed cheap money and loansharking multiplied this money in an unnatural way within the American economy boarders and they discarded them abroad so that they did not threaten USA. USA became the first state in the world with artificial “breathing”...

It cannot be possible but just in the USA for only the last year, more than one million houses were seized. It cannot be impossible but the New World has returned to tents and shelters ..has returned to the ages of Columbus. It cannot be possible that we allow to a few loan sharks looting the toils and the assets of people...



Global Debt Crisis

AnAnonymous's picture

US citizens usually have this slip of the tongue that betrays themselves.

So it starts:

-Greece is entangled in an extortion scheme.

it follows

-Greece would be better off the extortion scheme, Greece must leave.

Save that leaving an extortion scheme is not that way. You dont knock at the door of the extorter, popping the head and singing "it is over, I am leaving, farewell"

And if you manage to leave, the extorter wont greet you and congratulate you for leaving. The extorter will try to punish you through all means possible.

The Greeks know that, they share the same culture, they are proponents of US citizenism.

They know that if they leave, with no damaging interaction with their former gang partners, they will better off.

But they also know that their former gang will interact with them in the most painful way possible to make them regret leaving.

So they prefer to stay in.

This US citizen starts with the extortion scheme and suddenly, during the development of his train of thought, drops the extortion feature, to reach a conclusion that is not valid.

The Greeks do not want to leave. They know the price. If they leave, their former US citizen european brethern will gang up on them and it will be worse.

US world order.

Ms. Katseli, an economist who was labor minister in the government of George Papandreou until she left in a cabinet reshuffle last June, was also upset that Greece’s lenders will have the right to seize the gold reserves in the Bank of Greece under the terms of the new deal (Daily Telegraph - UK)

I will be interested to see the reaction once that piece of information becomes a little more widely known in Greece - it was kept very quiet until now.

Sandmann's picture

to seize the gold reserves in the Bank of Greece

Well the Bank of Greece is supposedly the best-capitalised having offloaded sovereign debt onto the ECB for liquidity to prop up its national banking system, so presumably nthey had to pledge their 111 tonnes of gold


PR Guy's picture

Nah - Irish banks are the best capitalised in the world. Our Finance Minister said they are so it must be true LOL
