A letter to the people of Greece

Dearest and Esteemed People of Greece,

You are being slaughtered right in front of the world’s eyes and nobody says beep. Least the Greek elite. Your Government. A few, but a few too many, allow the slaughter because it doesn’t concern them. They are blinded by the false glamour of the euro and of belonging to the ‘elite class’ of the noble Europeans (sic!).

They apparently live well enough, including the caviar socialists of Syriza. They let their country bleed to death literally, morally, socially and psychologically. Medical care is no longer available or privatized and unaffordable. Pensions were reduced five times. They were never more than a survival kit. By now they have been slashed in some cases by over 50%. Hordes of people live on food handouts. Most social services, including to a large extent education have been sold out, privatized. Gone with a flicker. Gone, by order of Germany – and the holy troika – the criminal gang of three, IMF, European Central Bank (EIB) and the European Commission (EU); the latter a mere bunch of unelected corrupt puppets, deciding the fate of some 800 million Europeans – with YOU, the Greek people, accepting carrying the brunt end of the stick.

A letter to the Greek people

A shocking account of the Greek crisis within Europe.

The Greeks should have got out of the EC when they had the chance.  It's still not too late.  Give Merkel and her fascist country the finger and renege on the debts.  It will destroy the euro and all the vested interests that support it.  THANK GOD the UK is leaving the sewer!

Yes, that's about it: seems the majority of the population want to stick with the euro so this is the price to be paid, SYRIZA, ND, PASOK or whoever.

As Euripides probably did not say "those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad"
