In the following passages, The New Nationalist (TNN) cherry picked and abridged a lengthy article by Greek writer Michael Nevradakis to give our readers a synopsis of how Greece fits into the scheme of wildcat parasite guild globalization.
John Perkins, author of the bestselling book “Confessions of an Economic Hitman” described how “economic hitmen” from institutions such as the IMF and the World Bank, as well as from the private sector, coordinate their economic takeover of an indebted nation such as Greece with a process of mental colonization:
… [T]hat’s part of the game: convince people that they’re wrong, that they’re inferior. The corporatocracy is incredibly good at that … It’s a policy of them versus us: We are good. We are right. We do everything right. You’re wrong. And in this case, all of this energy has been directed at the Greek people to say “you’re lazy; you didn’t do the right thing; you didn’t follow the right policies.”
This collective guilt has been strongly encouraged by Greece’s political class, who ironically are responsible to a significant degree for Greece’s present-day crisis. Greece is very much a victim of a planned kakistrocracy put in place by usual suspect Crime Syndicate operatives. Somehow, as if by osmosis, criminally incompetent leadership is installed that sets about utilizing the age-old bankster trap: debt, mostly spent on consumerism, waste, fluff and lining kleptocrat pockets.
Purchasing habits are shifted via brainwashing so that ordinary Greeks reveal a marked preference for foreign products, even when similar (and often higher-quality) domestic products are available.
In the early 1980s, Greece’s borders were opened up to imports from other European countries and particularly Germany, Europe’s export powerhouse. Greece’s previously successful industry, which produced everything from buses and tractors to refrigerators and stoves, was wrecked. Many industries were bought out, shuttered or operations were outsourced. Under the dictates of Greece’s so-called “bailout” agreements, many remaining industries were slated for firesale privatization to foreign corporate interests or closure.
Greece entered the EEC (European Economic Community) in 1981. EEC regulations, such as its common agricultural policies, dictates to member-states what to grow, what not to grow, what seeds and crop varieties are permitted or prohibited, where to export and at what prices, and where not to export. Greece’s agricultural base has, as a result, been battered since 1981.
During this same period, increased foreign influence and the arrival of “easy money” from “Europe” led more and more people to desire what they perceived to be a more “European” lifestyle and career. Working the land was old-fashioned and backwards; a desk job or studying to become a lawyer or doctor was the thing to do.
Greek academics at all educational levels are infamous for their love and support toward the pan-European economic alliances and values. Many are negatively selected for anti-national beliefs and are bought off via various European funding and grant programs, scholarship and mobility programs.
The cultural and mental colonization of Greece has also resulted in the phenomenon of mimicry. The behaviors and habits of the “civilized West” are increasingly being adopted and naturalized. Since the 1980s, students have been taught that they are “European first, then Greek.”
Approximately half of Greece’s population has piled into the greater Athens area. The debt binge did little to deal with infrastructure and livability issues there. There is little multi-generational place affinity to bind a community. About 600,000 Greeks have departed Greece and have no intention of ever repatriating.
Greece’s kakistrocrats seemed to work right out of the 1944 Wild Bill Donovan CIA handbook for demoralizing a nation and its population. Is this Greek Model employed elsewhere? You betcha.
List of Timeless Tips from the Simple Sabotage Field Manual
Managers and Supervisors
- To lower morale and production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work.
- Demand written orders.
- “Misunderstand” orders. Ask endless questions or engage in long correspondence about such orders. Quibble over them when you can.
- Do everything possible to delay the delivery of orders. Even though parts of an order may be ready beforehand, don’t deliver it until it is completely ready.
- Don’t order new working’ materials until your current stocks have been virtually exhausted, so that the slightest delay in filling your order will mean a shutdown.
- Order high-quality materials that are hard to get. If you don’t get them, argue about it. Warn that inferior materials will mean inferior work.
- In making work assignments, always sign out the unimportant jobs first. See that the important jobs are assigned to inefficient workers of poor machines.
- Insist on perfect work on relatively unimportant products; send back for refinishing those that have the least flaws.
- Employees: Work slowly. Think of ways to increase the number of movements needed to do your job: use a light hammer instead of a heavy one; try to make a small wrench do instead of a big one.
- Organizations and Conferences: When possible, refer all matters to committees for “further study and consideration.” Attempt to make the committees as large and bureaucratic as possible. Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.
The resulting divide-and-conquer hatred and disgust that many in the Greek private sector and the populace at large feel toward the public sector and its employees has helped pave the way for the acceptance of firesale privatizations of key public assets, utilities and services, such as airports, harbors and telecommunications infrastructure into the hands of private foreign investors and kleptocrats.
It’s assumed and ingrained in the national psyche that Greece must be aligned with some power, operating as a vassal state in exchange for some marginal benefits and “protection.”
The end result of this wildcat savage globalization racket, is that Greece ranks No. 4 on Bloomberg’s misery index.
Greek actress Katerina Moutsatsou produced a YouTube video titled “I Am Hellene,” a production that was meant to raise the spirits of the Greek people and to express some pride that was (and still is) sorely lacking. The video quickly went viral, soliciting a tremendous response from the media and the public – largely consisting of derision, insults and vitriol. Some accused Moutsatsos of being a “fascist,” others mocked anyone who would even consider saying anything positive about Greece.
Anything depicting the Greek flag, is a swift and certain way to be branded the ever present slur “far-right,” a “nationalist,” an “ethnocentrist,” a “racist” and a “xenophobe.”
