Sliding down the Greecy Pole

How has the human race become so stupid?  I have been watching the Greek Parliament "Vote of Confidence".  So they won the vote with 155 to 129.  This means the Greek Prime Minister can go ahead with the austerity measures in order to satisfy the IMF and World Bank so that they get some more money.  What is going on?  These people are pretending to be rational and discussing issues with a firm belief that they are being sophisticated and clever and important.  They seem to think that these words and ideas control reality and if they can construct ideas that are too big and complicated to prove wrong they are somehow sorting the situation out.  But we have run our course in this civilisation.

To start with the whole idea of austerity measures is a joke.  When the economy is straining because the rich people have borrowed too much you simply can't get it back by taking it from the poor.  They are poor you see.  They are not the one's with the money.  All that will happen is the greedy folk at the top are buying more time.  What are they buying it with?  The blood of the poor in the future.

I am going to stick my neck out now.  There is going to be another blood bath in Europe.  Consider Greece's position.  They are not being given enough money to invigorate or stimulate the economy.  They are being given just enough to get themselves into more trouble.  In 6 to 18 months they will be in the same situation except they will have an estimated 70,000 less companies to make money and they will owe more.  I've said it before and I'll say it again: This money business is not about the money it is about control.  So Greece should do what the Icelandic people did and say "NO!  Enough is enough, we're out of the Euro, you can stuff your Economic Community and we will trade with other nations on our own terms thank you.  As for anything you say we owe you it was always a deception and a scam an so we simply don't owe it to you."

What is fundamentally wrong is that we have allowed the psychopathic qualities of humanity to become the institutions and businesses.  We are not acting like humans.  All it would take to get Europe out of the current catastrophic collapse would be for humans to start acting humanely.  Don't accept the bullshit from the politicians.  Don't accept the bullshit from the bosses.  Don't accept the bullshit from the legal beagles.  Stop accepting nonsense spewing from their orifices.  I hear the utter nonsense nearly every day.

There was the case of the man fined £100 for getting off a train one station too early.  It was stated that the contract on the ticket clearly stated that this would be the case. Although many observers were sympathetic to the unfairness it was still deemed that he should have read the contract.  And they all went away nodding and shaking their heads.  The reason they get stalled there is because if they question the substantiality of the 'written contract' it could undermine everything they are hanging on to like their house, their car, etc.  So they reluctantly agree that the man should have read the contract.  Then let the railway company employers read the contract to each and every customer and see how economically viable that is.  IT ISN'T!  It is a con.  They are ripping off other people.  If our economy is based on trickery and selfishness it simply cannot work in the end.  And the 'end' is fast approaching.

I'm fed up with it all.  I'm lucky because I have no money left, no job, no house, no pension and pretty well no health.  So I have nothing left to lose.  If you lot don't stop pissing around condemning other people and supporting the bullies your time will come too.

Sod the fucking lot of you!  You are stupid and siding with your own executioners.  Do you really think they will look after you when the chips are down.  Not a chance.  Poverty will be for the majority and God help those thieving rich bastards.  They are currently laughing all the way to the bank where they are expecting, in Greece, to pick up some more lovely bonuses from their financial tranche supplied by Germany for them provided they continue to oppress the Greek people until the country is on its knees.  Germany is invading that country financially.  Wait and see if I'm wrong.  They did it to the Poles militarily and they are doing it to Greece financially.

Don't get me wrong - It's not that the Germans are worse than the rest.  They are just winning.  You shouldn't have agreed to the game!

German bean sprouts and other stuff.

Stir fry bean sprouts and cool cucumbers fight it out in a battle of words with serious financial consequences.  Stirring up trouble the bean sprout producer has tried to offset its own failures on the super cool cucumber nation of Spain.  Germany tried to distract world attention from the possibility that any blame could be attached to their country when a serious outbreak of extra strong e-coli began about a month ago... in Germany.  They rapidly blamed Spanish cucumbers for the problem.  Spanish vegetable growers lost their international markets and lost millions of pounds worth of trade.  The whole of Europe was soon dragged into this vegetable blame game with tomatoes and lettuces having their good names tarnished too.  Vladimir the crusader took advantage of the dispute to kick the victims whilst they were down and to promote his own vegetable products for his own benefit by banning all European vegetables from Russia.

Now it turns out the most likely source of the e-coli is German bean sprouts.  And what are the Germans going to do about the financial devastation across Europe?  As likely as not they are dead chuffed about this because they are effectively attempting an economic invasion and occupation of Europe already and this is just more grist for the mill as far as they are concerned.  They revel in dictating terms for the Greek government when they simply authorise billions of pounds from other people's pockets to bail out the Greek economy.  They have effectively bought Greece and they are in the process of doing it with Portugal and Spain.

The irony of the terms imposed on Greece by Germany is that it is German political philosophy that they are prescribing.  The whole idea that austerity measures can work is a joke.  Well actually that is not true.  We have to figure out a lot more about the convoluted way of thinking and expressing views to get a grip on this.  But it is related to the Freudian notion of projection.  Irony strikes again as Freud was a German but, of course, he was also a Jew.

Projection is the process of an ego rejecting a perception by externalising it onto other people or psyches.  To say that austerity measures work may well be true, for the Germans, because if Greece suffers and collapses the Germans have one more victim to use and abuse for their own benefit.  It works.  But it does not work in the way the phrase implies and that is for the long term benefit of the Greeks.  Well, yet again that is perhaps true because behind the reference to the long term benefit for the Greeks is the notion that if they get up and are in some way "equal" to Germany then there is the veiled threat from Germany that it will do them no good because Germany will simply knock them down.  It is all based in the competitive paradigm that life is a battle and the strongest survives (and precisely not the rest).

When George Orwell coined the phrase doublespeak I suspect he was only half way to the terrible truth.  The truth is that people endlessly manufacture this kind of communication without realising they are doing it.  It is based in what I call inside-out people.  People have a model of the world in their heads and compare this with the information coming in from outside.  For people who are the right way when they experience a discrepancy between the two they adjust the model in their head to more accurately reflect the information from outside.  People who are "inside out" think that the model in their head is reality (like children assume they are simply perceiving things as they are) and if there is a discrepancy they assume there is something wrong "out there".  This leads to a judgemental, negative and authoritarian attitude.  So from the German's point of view (given the philosophical paradigm is inside out) it is successful for the Greeks to suffer severe austerity measures.  No amount of research, investigation or evidence will alter this perception because anything that doesn't bolster their own view is simply wrong.
