The real bet for the future of Greece depends on what happens on Monday
The very people responsible for the Greek tragedy are coming back crawling out of the woodwork, trying to take advantage of the situation to exonerate and rebrand themselves.
People who should have been in prison (or at least hiding in their holes) are staging their comeback, pretending to be advocates for the European integration.
We won’t let them.
At the end of World War Two, Nazi collaborators were held accountable for their crimes and expelled from public offices all over Europe.
With the exception of Greece, that is, where they merely changed sides, aligning themselves with the Allies. The Greek people, who fell for that scheme (along with the unfortunate intervention of the USSR), had to endure a civil war followed by decades of poverty and subordination.
This history is about to be repeated.
The stupid reactionary verbalism and the amateurish governing style of SYRIZA assisted in the revival of the disastrous “triangle of power”, that of the criminal economic oligarchy, the mass media outlets that it owns, and the Greek politicians that serve as its lackeys.
Members of this “triangle” understand that, whether with the drachma or the euro, Greece will continue to require further economic assistance.
They also know that among the few entities able to offer their “support”, the E.U. will remain be the more realistic and viable option (obviously no one will accept the help of mafia czars or of the sponsors of jihadists).
That’s why they try to re-invent themselves as the “European connection”.
We won’t let it happen.
The ruling powers in E.U. (that is, the ones insisting on the failed model ofintergovernmentalism, where a few powerful countries take all the decisions and smaller countries are forced to comply), are eagerly waiting to use any Greek government misstep to their advantage — and the same holds for the local powers of decay.
Let them hear this loud and clear:
A vote of YES is a vote for the European Federation, a vote for a “united states” of Europe, so to speak — and not a vote to their criminal plans for the subjugation of smaller European countries.
In the same vein, a vote of NO is a loud “no” to the failed paradigm of intergovernmentalism — a heroic cry against the rule of power and the law of the jungle.
As for abstention or black and invalid ballot papers, those represent nothing more that a de facto delegitimisation of a meaningless referendum.
Greeks shall remain united.
Whatever we do on Monday, even in it leads to a haircut on deposits or other extreme but necessary measures, we’ll need further assistance from abroad.
Our local criminal oligarchic establishment understands this all too well, and no longer even pretends to keep up appearances.
WE SAY NO TO THE BOGUS REFERENDUM
Whatever one choses to vote, YES, NO, absence, invalid or blank ballot, we are not forgetting those who destroyed Greece from 1974 onwards.They are guilty and they will be punished for what they did. We want the truth, and we won’t allow their crimes to be forgotten.
Reconciliation presupposes justice.
Greece is facing an unprecedented cul-de-sac. The best thing that can happen with regard to the referendum, is for it to be postponed. But even if it goes through as planned, its result won’t matter one iota. Neither Greece can exist outside of Europe nor Europe can continue on the dead end path of intergovernmentalism.
All this makes the actual result of the referendum irrelevant. Whatever one votes, what’s important is what will happen on Monday.
The establishment of a negotiating team accepted by all parties to do the right thing for Greece and Europe has become an absolute necessity.
This message is a cry of despair and a shout of determination.
We’ll march forward united with no fear for Greece and Europe.
