Things About To Turn Violent Again - Greece May Mobilize Police Against Striking Students And Teachers

Tyler Durden's picture


Even as the three bureaucratic stooges from the Eurogroup mumbled something or another about kicking the Greek can down the road in the just concluded press conference indicating that Finland will indeed get the Greek collateral its desires, only it will be in the form of worthless Greek bonds that can not be touched for 15 or so years, we have a feeling that Greek society may soon take matters into its own hands, and with quite a terminal outcome at that. According to Kathimerini, the Deputy Education Minister Evi Christofilopoulou (henceforth known simply as Lud-E-Chris) has "suggested" that the police be mobilized to break up "hundreds of sit-ins at schools on Monday a few hours after hundreds of pupils protesting cutbacks clashed with riot officers in central Athens." And if people think that our own version of occupational protests is troubling, just wait until a country's protesting student body comprehends that its country has just sicced the police force against it.

From Kathimerini:

“Universities and schools are public places and as such police can enter them of their own accord,” Christofilopoulou told Kathimerini.


The number of sit-ins at secondary schools rose above 650 yesterday while the number of university faculties currently occupied has dwindled to just over 100.


Christofilopoulou added that a controversial scheme, finalized by the government on Monday, to put 30,000 civil servants on labor standby status, which would see them receiving a heavily docked wage for 12 months before early retirement or dismissal, would also apply to schoolteachers.


Unionists accused the ministry of “artificially inflating teacher numbers.”

Naturally, one can see why we are skeptical the Troika will have much can kicking to do: Greece may do it all for them. After all there is hardly an incident in history in which a country's police force being directed to subdue the same country's student body has ever led to anything particularly notable, and all such interventions have usually concluded peacefully and with all parties singing Kum Ba Yah.

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”  Aldous Huxley - the real Aldous Huxley

The best propaganda is mostly true... it's a much easier pill to swallow. Mostly all pop icons serve this purpose... they're created by the system for the system.


Dilbert mocks the "induhviduals" who keep a man from doing his job, but on the larger issues of corporate malfeasance, Adams is mute. The cartoonist is even an apologist for downsizing. In a May 1997 Canadian television interview, he opined, "Everyone knows someone who came out fine after getting downsized. ... Suddenly it's not such a scary thing anymore."

Dilbert's wistful grousing about badly run companies is, as Solomon suggests, a safety valve that doesn't release any real pressure. Just as stress-management classes instruct employees in rage-swallowing and chronic-pain-enduring, Dilbert counsels submitting to the inevitable.

Kill and cook perhaps, but he would only be fit to be fed to the dogs, and even then only dogs that were mad or certain to die soon of other maladies.

Mr. Adams is a parasite that pretends to be an artist.  His creativity is as deep as a conversation with Paris Hilton and he has become sucessful by being a feedback loop between his publisher and his audience, with the audience providng the actual content through web & email contributions, and Adams being the conduit by which such ideas are spread between his audience.

A decent plumber could cut him out of the piping and no one would notice he was gone.

He is a shadow of what cartoonist are. Put Adams up against Gary Larsen to see what a real cartoonist does.

Tyranny is organized, but the opposition begins as fragmented, leaderless, and often politically distasteful.  This opposition will soon disappear if it stays that way but its chances of expansion are very good considering the stated objective I’ve heard the most: namely, the overturning of the financial elite that controls the country for its own benefit.

According to CNN’s wire staff today, “The motto atop a website for ‘Occupy Los Angeles,’ which kicked off Saturday with a march from Pershing Square to City Hall, reads: ‘The revolution is happening ... It's just not in the news.’"

CNN reports that “the website of Seattle demonstrators describes the nationwide effort as ‘a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions.’

"’The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%,’ the statement continues, referring to what it sees as a sharp divide between the wealthiest Americans and the rest of society.”

Well I for one do not look at it as random, but wrong, dogmatic thinking.  Hormone shots or pills are very dangerous.  

If they ever did a study between carcinogenic intake, homone (birth control)  pills, and cervical cancer the world would be shocked to see the correlation.

I would not trust any "HIV" data out of Africa.  It is a joke, the last refuge for drug companies to peddle toxic crap that loses favor in the west.

The PM is "thinking" about early retirement can only mean one thing. He's done, he's exhausted and he knows there is no hope, not in his lifetime.

Education is a privilege. The unions have completely destroyed that aspect and turned schools into factories. Students get programmed like machines on a belt.

I charge that if the unions had stayed out of the education sector completely, the people would be wiser and mistakes could have been avoided. The unions have aided the financial elite in dumbing down the population because education was never at the core of the union's charter, just the amount they would get paid in order to complete the product.

What are the unions protesting? That the hand that's been feeding them is going broke? Don't tell me the unions didn't know how fraudulent the process has been. They've been in it for the same reasons and now that the trough is empty, they're screaming.

What chapter of Animal Farm is that exactly?

They will insist the only way out of the mess is to have a one Euro government where everybody follows the same rules and operates from one budget. Of course it will be led by a 'commission' which will be headed by a chairman (probably German to start).

Revolution time in greece?

couldn't hurt.....

I see police state in the near future, anyone else?

Or maybe the rest of the EU can just annex and split up greece ala post WW2 Germany, with a China portion an IMF portion, and a Euro portion....

It seems only right that the fatherland of democracy go this way....

Hey Kudlow, nice grand standing tonight. Just for old times sake, tell your viewers the plug about strong dollar policy. Look at that, nearly .81. Oh my heavens, we need a new spending bill to begin the dollar debasement cycle all over again. Banks don't weather well during the strong dollar policy bubble.

Larry Kudlow Game

Every time Larry says "free market" drink one shot

Every time Larry says "tax cuts" drink one shot

Make sure you don't watch Larry for more than 15 minutes as you could die of alcohol poisoning.

The man is a bloody broken fucking record.

Ahhh a breath of fresh air. Look at the ignorant rage in the photo. Do these sheeple really think the elite will be paying the ballance if they yell loud enough? Reminds of the dumbed down American Idol watching free lunch borrowing art students on Wall Street these past few days. They will be the most miserable bunch of slaves the world has ever seen when this is over. And it will be SOOO hard for their soft lazy asses. Soon we cut off the free lunches and start collecting on the debts - full blown austerity. I am just so glad we have a strong police force. I think having Iraq and Afghanistan as training grounds for these guys was a wonderful idea. They will be well equipped to deal with the sub-human biped-cattle. I just wonder what the final plan is when the whole thing collapses and the zombie moron orcs are starving. Hopefully by then we will have the camps complete and full military mobilization. The first camps can be disguised as debtor's prisons for the delinquent student loans. What extermination methods? I really can't wait till we get rid of the orc filth that infest this place. Never again! End the moron holocaust! It will be paradise on earth. In the mean time, stock up on pepper spray and weapons. Fortify the mansion. May need to retreat to the summer home for a while (worst case). Zombie killin' time bitches!!! Long live the NWO!

Tyler’s said it all. The recent government turnovers in the Middle East were facilitated by a rising police presence from the government.  And if Greece wants to lose its final support of the people it only needs to over react, especially toward the youth.  What teenager or what college student does not feel the urge to be part of a movement to secure his homeland against the foreign invader, be it eurozone bureaucrats, the purchased politicians such as Papandreous, or Goldman Sachs.

Your not too bright huh? You really think the 50 or even 100% price increases we have seen is hyperinflation? Further more we haven't fought Iran...yet, but it is coming and it has started. Hell WWII death toll was in the tens of millions, this next one will be in the hundreds of millions if it's allowed to continue. Only in a fairytale world would someone say this shit is over, hell they are just getting warmed up.

So what?  France has student strikes all the time.  Some drag on for months, and the government does nothing to resolve them.  College students don't drive trains or collect trash, they just drink, f**k, and study Marxist doctrine. Let them march, wave banners, and chant slogans -- they need the fresh air and exercise.

What's hilarious is that the result of whatever crisis solution that arises is going to be much worse for these folks than the status quo. 

What we are watching is the collapse of the solialist nanny state.

Lenin was quoted as saying that when it comes time to hang the capitalists, they will sell us the rope. But the more precient saying would be that when it comes time to throw the socialist/communist/marxist/obamaist social model onto the trash heap of history, it will be the prolitariet that will expedite the process, inadvertantly.

You can't make this stuff up.

BTW Socialism es muerte :)

Just thought I'd throw that in.

What do you want?

The "Occupy Wall Street" protesters have listed 13 proposed demands from their website.

    Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending "Freetrade" by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

    Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

    Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

    Demand four: Free college education.

    Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

    Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

    Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America's nuclear power plants.

    Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

    Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

    Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

    Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the "Books." World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the "Books." And I don't mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

    Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

    Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

When do you want it? NOW :)

This is the third time I've seen this posted. If you look at their site: it says nothing of the sort. I don't get it?

Its obviously an exaggerated list of 'demands' that they 'want'. Its bullshit; but if you're a FAUX viewer, that's why you believe it, I guess.

The real list is here:
