Possible scenarios after the arrests of Golden Dawn members

by system failure

It's kind of hard someone to say that some things are random. The last days we witnessed rapid developments and events in Greece that, if combined, a lot can be explained.

Arrests of Golden Dawn members: why now?

German elections gave the opportunity to the representatives of neoliberal dictatorship in Greece, to restrict the neo-nazi monster that threatened to break out of their control. The reelection of Merkel, secures the expansion of destructive neoliberal policies across Europe in favor of bankers and big capital and the nazist monster can go back to the closet, until further instructions.

Although already mentioned briefly, in a previous article, what the representatives of the neoliberal dictatorship in Greece managed to achieve (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2013/09/greece-when-neoliberal-dictatorship.html), the list of their "achievements", could be expanded. Specifically:

Within less than a month, all settled as they wanted. They knew Golden Dawn, they expected such a murder. As long as GD was murdering immigrants and doing the "dirty work", was quite useful. Just after this political assassination of a Greek citizen, the "local representatives" found the excuse to cut the unacceptably high rates of GD and restore them to a more "manageable" level of about 7%. Small enough to be able to control GD and big enough to be a threat against "democratic stability" to spread the fear again if necessary and a factor of breaking the anti-Memorandum electoral tank, which contains various ideological colors. It was not very difficult, as they control banks, media, poll companies, the government itself.

In particular, Samaras government tries to fix its image after the fiasco of ERT, as attempts to prove that keeps equal distance from everyone, without discrimination, and has the same determination in each case to act summarily.

It's not easy for someone to believe this, as Golden Dawn acted undisturbed so far under the tolerance of the police. The already classic argument made ad nauseam by the mainstream media as an excuse for the Greek justice and police inaction, that they were trying to connect all data to secure criminal charges, looks silly, if one consider that for other - perhaps less difficult - cases, the delay of the Greek authorities is characteristic.

The Greek Minister of Public Order and Citizen Protection, Nikos Dendias, this time moved very fast and the finding of the Greek Supreme Court, composed in record time, include details of action, structure, and even the past and the course of the neo-nazi organization through time. How did they do it now so well, so fast, to "tie" the data after the assassination of Fyssas? Everything indicates that they had the necessary proofs long ago, but waited for the right moment. Besides, this was also confirmed, substantially, by the former coalition government partner and leader of the Leftist party Dimokratiki Aristera, Fotis Kouvelis, who said that some New Democracy and governmental officials, were playing with the Golden Dawn agenda.

Also, Samaras government attempts to get rid of the stigma of ideological relation with the fascist far Right, while in the government participate some MPs from Nea Dimokratia, with a far Right past, and while the government closed the Public National Broadcaster through a coup d'etat type action.

Some possible scenarios

The representatives of neoliberal dictatorship in Greece, as managed to restrict Golden Dawn to the desirable limits, are now free to focus on the problem called “new possible rise of the Left”.

During the next period, we should probably expect new successive polls between increased propaganda against the "dangerous", for their plans, Left and certainly against SYRIZA, the Leftist opposition party, which threatens the first position for the Memorandum block in future possible elections.

Neoliberal dictatorship, does not afraid of course, solely, a possible rise of the Left during future elections in Greece. What fears most is, whether the domino theory could be verified, through the general rise of the Left in Europe. A domino which can be started from Greece and could be expanded initially in the eurozone periphery, putting at risk its plans.

If the polls show a new rise of the Left beyond "manageable limits", new provocation operations should not be unexpected, by the para-state mechanisms, which the systemic establishment activates, when its sovereignty is threatened. Besides, the ground is properly prepared through the so-called "theory of two extremes", which equalize the neo-nazist far Right with the radical Left. This theory is reproduced ad nauseam by the mainstream media and by systemic mouthpieces. Although this theory is soundly baseless, can be particularly effective if combined with successful provocation operations.

As neoliberal dictatorship is ruthless, behaves essentially like the leadership of a mafia organization, dropping out some of its members when they are not useful anymore, as did with the Golden Dawn.

Thus, another possible scenario is to drop out some "useful politicians" who serve its interests through the participation in the government, but now do not need them. The bell rings for the Socialist coalition party leader, Evangelos Venizelos, and probably for some others since it is almost certain that, there is evidence for their responsibility about handling the case of the Lagarde list, which incidentally has been temporarily forgotten. Maybe it's time, some evidence to be revealed about the case "incidentally".

From a possible sacrifice of Venizelos, there will be additional profits. First, the image of the neoliberal Right (i.e. essentially the Nea Dimokratia main government coalition party), will further improve. This would be the most desirable development, since Nea Dimokratia is the most authentic and most definite representative of the neoliberal dictatorship in Greece in a political level, giving the impression that does not hesitate to give up even its own partners for the sake of justice, in order to balance the new harsh measures that will come under the orders of Merkel and the Troika lenders, and give a rising sense of justice for citizens.

Therefore, Nea Dimokratia will possibly win the trust of even more far Right voters who, along with new "cleaning" operations of illegal immigrants, could be persuaded for the intentions of the party, and allow it to continue undisturbed the completion of the Greek experiment and pave the way for its expansion throughout Europe.

How a group of economists undermined public institutions, paving the way to neoliberalism

An assumption had become a truth. The self-interested model of human behaviour, that had been developed in the Cold War to make the mathematical equations work, had now been adopted by these economists as a fundamental truth about the reality of all human social interaction.

A group of economists in the early 70s arbitrarily adopted the self-interested model of human behaviour that had been developed in the Cold War, to explain the dysfunctionality of public institutions. This perception would become a powerful tool in the hands of the neoliberal ideology, carried by big banks and corporations, to demonize the state and dismantle any state control upon them at the expense of the societies.
In his documentary The Trap, Adam Curtis explains:
In the early 70s, the government bureaucracies in Britain began to collapse. Those around them blamed a growing economic crisis, but it was clear that something much more fundamental had gone wrong. What were supposed to be institut…

Italy, Greece, Deutsche Bank: heavy clouds of non-linear collapse gather again above Europe

globinfo freexchange
For nearly ten years now, the key decision centers inside eurozone are trying to hide the huge problems, pretending that the crisis is behind, in order to maintain a completely failed economic model, which also reveals, day by day, its authoritarian nature and despise against real Democracy. The totally problematic structure of eurozone makes things even worse.
In Italy, we had another political crisis and a constitutional coup because the new majority and potential coalition government is not likeable to the Brussels/Berlin axis.
In Greece, things are not looking better. The country is about to exit the IMF-type neoliberal program imposed by the Troika (ECB, European Commission, IMF), in August. Yet, the economy is still in very bad shape, drowning in stagnation, with unprecedented unemployment, nearly zero growth and a national debt at 180% of GDP, which is actually much higher than Greece's debt in 2010 (120% of GDP) when crisis hit the country!
In fact, the eu…

WikiLeaks reveals Italian officials had serious concerns about Italy's ability to participate in the monetary union already since the late 70s

The WIKILEAKS Public Library of US Diplomacy (PlusD)holds the world's largest searchable collection of United States confidential, or formerly confidential, diplomatic communications. As of April 8, 2013 it holds 2 million records comprising approximately 1 billion words. The collection covers US involvements in, and diplomatic or intelligence reporting on, every country on earth. It is the single most significant body of geopolitical material ever published. The PlusD collection, built and curated by WikiLeaks, is updated from a variety of sources, including leaks, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and documents released by the US State Department systematic declassification review.

How eurozone became a financial dictatorship

It all started with the silent coup against Ireland
globinfo freexchange
In 2010, Ireland experienced Frankfurt's political blackmail. On the 18th of November, where there was a governing council of the ECB in Frankfurt. The governor of the Irish central bank who sat on the governing council, called "Morning Ireland" which is the most important radio program in Ireland, to say that Ireland will need what he called a loan. He didn't warn the government about it and this created a massive panic.
Then, the next day, there was a letter written from the then president of ECB, Jean-Claude Trichet, to Brian Lenihan, the minister of finance at the time, saying that 'if you don't apply the so-called bailout program, by this opening of the markets the following Monday, we're going to cut off access to Emergency Liquidity Assistance (ELA)', which obviously would have collapsed the Irish banking system.
The ECB used the liquidity weapon in order to impose its terms o…

David Harvey: unless there is some real new thinking, another crisis is inevitable

globinfo freexchange
Chris Hedges spoke with David Harvey about the repeated crises of the capitalist system, which generate further instability, especially since the early 70s where we have the rise of financial capitalism and neoliberal ideology.
As Harvey points out:
Interestingly, in almost every crisis there has been a good deal of re-evaluation of exactly how to think about the economy, how to think about the relationship between state power and politics and all this kind of stuff.
Since 2007-08, is hardly any new thinking at all. And actually, we're trying to hang on. And we are trying to hang on because the oligarchy - which has all of the money, all of the power - is actually in a situation where it does not want any change. And until we confront the oligarchy, we're not going to find a way of exiting from this, apart from repeating what happened in 2007-08.
And the interesting thing when you look back, before 2007-08, and you see big financial crises in Argentina, in Braz…

The facts about Venezuela’s May 20th Presidential Election

Despite a high level of election transparency, one that Jimmy Carter called “the best in the world”, the US and its allies have accused Venezuela of election fraud. Caleb Maupin breaks down how Venezuela’s electoral system really works.
by Caleb T. Maupin
Part 3 - Accusations of Fraud
Despite the stringent safeguards in place to protect Venezuela’s election integrity, international media based in Western countries have widely claimed the election was fraudulent. Those claiming that the results are illegitimate have cited prior statements from SmartMatic, a corporation based in London that manufactured Venezuela’s voting machines. An official statement from SmartMatic claimed the 2017 Constitutional Referendum vote showed “tamper evident.” Statements from SmartMatic have been vague about how exactly the results were illegitimate or what malpractice took place.
Tibisay Lucena, president of the National Elections Center (CNE), says the claims from SmartMatic and its Chief Executive Antonio …

Will the Swiss citizens beat the banksters today?

About 5.3 million Swiss citizens, including registered members of the Swiss Abroad community, are eligible to take part in the June 10, 2018 ballot. Votes on a broad range of issues, as well as elections, also take place in many cantons and municipalities across the country.

The Swiss sovereign-money referendum of June 2018, also known as the Sovereign-Money Initiative, aims to give the central bank of Switzerland the sole authority of "creating money."
This is actually what the proponents of the Swiss "Vollgeld Initiative" want. They say only the government, through the publicly-owned Swiss central bank (SNB), should be able to create money and put it into circulation.
The Sovereign Money Initiative aims to give the Swiss Confederation a monopoly on money creation, including demand deposit (full-reserve banking, by including the creation of scriptural money in the legal mandate of the Swiss National Bank. The name of the initiative was inspired by…

Marx predicted our present crisis – and points the way out

The Communist Manifesto foresaw the predatory and polarised global capitalism of the 21st century. But Marx and Engels also showed us that we have the power to create a better world.
by Yanis Varoufakis
Part 1 - The spirit of communism driving the manifesto is proving hard to silence
For a manifesto to succeed, it must speak to our hearts like a poem while infecting the mind with images and ideas that are dazzlingly new. It needs to open our eyes to the true causes of the bewildering, disturbing, exciting changes occurring around us, exposing the possibilities with which our current reality is pregnant. It should make us feel hopelessly inadequate for not having recognised these truths ourselves, and it must lift the curtain on the unsettling realisation that we have been acting as petty accomplices, reproducing a dead-end past. Lastly, it needs to have the power of a Beethoven symphony, urging us to become agents of a future that ends unnecessary mass suffering and to inspire humanity …

More evidence that the 2011 riots in Syria were sparked by a false flag operation

globinfo freexchangeIndependent journalist Eva Bartlett spoke with Lee Camp about her recent trip in Syria. Bartlett visited the hospital in Douma where many victims of the latest alleged chemical attack went to receive medical care. Bartlett spoke with a medical student who was working the day of the alleged attack, and actually confirmed the reporting by the veteran journalist Robert Fisk, according to which there was no evidence of a chemical attack.
Bartlett also went to Daraa, where the first protests took place in 2011, and spoke to people there. They confirmed what many other investigative journalists support. 

This is strong evidence that it was a false flag operation that actually sparked the subsequent riots:
In the initial protest, Daraa was named as the birthplace of the so-called revolution. And Daraa is a city in the very south of Syria, not a very large city, and a rather unlikely city for a so-called revolution to have started. But prior going to Daraa, I interviewed a do…

IMF lunacy: Lagarde admitted to Varoufakis in private that the program imposed on Greece doesn't work!

globinfo freexchange
As Yanis Varoufakis describes in his book Adults in the Room:
Less than a month after my election, on 11 February 2015, in one of those spirit-numbing, windowless, neon-lit meeting rooms that litter the EU’s Brussels buildings, I found myself sitting opposite Christine Lagarde, the IMF’s managing director, France’s ex-finance minister and a former Washington-based high-flying lawyer. She had waltzed into the building earlier that day a glamorous leather jacket, making me look drab and conventionally attired. This being our first encounter, we chatted amicably in the corridor before moving into the meeting room for the serious discussion.
Behind closed doors, with a couple of aides on each side, the conversation turned serious but remained just as friendly. She afforded me the opportunity to present my basic analysis of the causes and nature of the Greek situation as well as my proposals for dealing with it, and nodded in agreement for much of the time. We seemed to s…
