And what they say is:
Immigrants must leave Greece (except these who have been for many years),
and Greek national property back to Greece and not to the bankers
Do you still believe is strange what happened?
Yes I am sure many used the exact same arguments circa 1933 too.
From what I can tell..what you are saying is that Greece, rather than resolving a social and policing problem with social and policing
solutions..prefers to ignore the fact that the neo-Nazi party is riding to power on the back of their unwillingness to see another person as a human
being instead of a colour or race.
That this same group is using their fear and are using every day Greecian peoples' readiness to use imigrants as a handy scape goat, in order to
acheive its own goals which as yet..are unclear and unstated outside of 'getting rid of people they dont like or want'. The people are angry, that
is to say, afraid, both of what 'might' happen and of loosing control. Neo-Nazi's are making use of this and are manipulating it.
Whereas I see it as a case that many Greecians dont want to take responsibility for the fact THEY were the ones that voted their prior government into
power - the criminal gang that just fleeced them all - and they dont want to accept that it was THEY who didnt take responsibility for their own
freedom via vigilance in the political process until it was too late and so they want to blame rather than accept responibility for those choices.The
house of cards has fallen and they are pissed off....no one wants to own it.
So now they are freaking out at the consequences of that inaction..and in a knee jerk reaction, are now venting their rage at the government, one THEY
put into power..by tossing the old crime bosses and giving the power they ought not to have given away in the first place, to a potentially even worse
group of crime bosses who, regardless of if they become little hitlars or not, people will once again abdicate their political and social power
authority and choice to - ones they will again 'rest' in and ignore until they too fleece them of whatever is left the others didnt take.
Instead of looking at their own accountability to themselves and to the governmental and fiscal processes of their own nation, they have just set up
yet another patsy to take their rage in the future..and in the mean time..in fear... they are criminalising everyone else around them who 'isnt like
them'....its called projection.
More..they are willing to vote into power within their nation, a political force (Nazism/ultranationalism) that has a known and very recent historical
precedents for blatantly mass murdering those who do not feel the same as they do! Onya!
So Greece is willing to risk these mongrels rising to actual power in quick time as Hitalr did, and so 'hoping' that these Nazi's wont take the lives
of their own sick, gay, disabled, elderly, non christian, non 'white', red heads, green eyed, multiracial, 'different', politcally active, alternative
religous believers, not to mention anti gov scientists researchers etc.. all so they can to continue to claim the right to abdicate their personal
responsibility for their choices for another generation! Such TRUST!
Sure they wont say or think that now.....but I bet you that they will be the first to cry foul and blame THE EVIL NAZI"s rather than their own voting
choices when they do begin to murder all and sundry!
To all of the above I say Greece needs to take a breath and consider taking some damn responsibility. They need to stop blaming everyone else and
start working together. It is the only way - to know what it is your fearing - to work together to get over those fears and be humans again.
Yes..Greece has copped a great deal of the immigrant taffic in the region..but why? What is the basis of the NEED for immgration to begin with? You
cant begin to deal with those issues until you stand accountable.
IMO people need to stop looking to the top to guide them..they need to form communities..help each other..work with each other, including with
immigrants to resolve conflicts and be citizens rather than subjects.
It IS possible..its just hard WORK. Just ask Iceland.
All of the above is IMO..ymmv and just how I see it..and I'd say sue me..but Im broke too
