Official: Merkel wants a "Treuhand" for Europe!

by system failure

During Merkel's visit in Athens, mainstream media flooded, as expected, by more or less triumphal comments, with only few exceptions of different opinions which were allowed in the name of the supposed reliable information.

From the first moment of her visit as representative of the European neoliberal economic empire, it was like all problems were magically vanished: homeless who searching garbage for food disappeared, poverty was beaten, unemployment rate dropped to single digits and the only thing that Greece has to do is to prepare for the millions of tourists who are about to come and borrow from international speculators at low interest!

The German chancellor said many things (more or less expected), but it would be worth to focus on a phrase which shows her intentions: "I come from an electoral periphery which was marked by the reunion phase of east and west Germany. Many occupations that were necessary sometime, suddenly were not. Thus, I do have a picture of the weight that you carry in your country".

Merkel wants to "unload the weight" by offering "earth and water" to the German big capital. If someone wants to see an example, could only have to take a look at the relatively recent past and how former West Germany behaved against former East Germany, with the fast and massive privatizations and companies that passed into the hands of the West Germany's economic elite under ridiculous prices. German oligarchs are organizing a new "Treuhand" throughout Europe. Other multinationals will follow to take advantage, and preparing for big party on potential oil and natural gas fields.

The latest bill voted by the very thin majority of the Greek parliament opened the road for good. The experiment in Greece is about to end according to the plan and the timeline was verified also by the IMF director of the European department, Reza Moghadam, who stated that, it is likely that Greece may need further help from the eurozone over the next two years, thus until the end of Samaras administration, so that the last phase of the experiment to be completed, including the sell off of state property and shrinking of the minimum wage at 300 euros.

No one should have illusions. The armies of economists of the "new economy", were presenting improved economic indexes as an answer to those who were criticizing neoliberal policies of IMF in various countries. However, development indexes that supposedly improve the economic situation of a country, are only related to the high profits of the big companies and banks and not to the improvement of the conditions in people's lives which are getting worse.

However, in the case of the Greek experiment, the anxiety of the economic murderers to present a "success story" in any case, is more than obvious since in this case even the numbers expose them. Thus, they created a false "primary surplus" and a "return to markets", as an answer to the obvious destruction, because they have to persuade, somehow, the rest of the eurozone to adopt such policies, so that the experiment not to be restricted to Greece.

Therefore, what the neoliberal dictatorship fears most now, is an "accident" in the oncoming euro elections that may be proved catastrophic for the completion of the experiment. The systemic establishment in Greece has already prepared the scenery for a possible coalition between the neoliberal Right party Nea Dimokratia and the neo-nazi party Golden Dawn, in case that the rest of the systemic parties will not be able to regain power. At the same time, politics of fear and blackmail are in the front line: http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2014/04/when-system-blackmails-societies.html

The "parrots" who reproduce the systemic propaganda, insist to speak about the new age, the new economy. However, the fact that for the first time an economically developed area is being tested through the current experiment, is in reality the only innovation that someone can find. For the rest, not only nothing new can be found, but on the contrary, Europe walks backwards to the Feudalism and Machiavellianism of the 21st century guided by Merkel, something that someone could call as "Merkiavellianism".

The Jimmy Dore Show   When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed. And that’s why government agents insisted Twitter censor accounts promoting Shokin’s book, along with countless others in the tsunami of demands for censorship from government agencies that were flooding into the social media company prior to the 2020 election. Guest host Aaron Maté and journalist Matt Taibbi discuss the very dangerous precedent established by this unseemly private-public censorial partnership.

Julian Assange and the rapid decline of liberal Democracy

by system failure We are now in 2023, and after 1362 days, Julian Assange is still in prison. If you seek something to measure the decline of liberal Democracy in our days, the Julian Assange case will help you a lot. And it's most amazing that in the era of information overflow (with plenty of means available to transfer it almost instantly in every corner of the planet), there are still many people who are unaware of the Assange case.   The origins of this deterioration go back in 1968 when the Left made a disastrous compromise with the powers of the establishment. Since the early 70s and after Nixon's shock , the cultural domination of neoliberalism paved the way for the restriction of certain types of liberties in Western societies.  The 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 became the perfect opportunity for the establishment to abolish instantly a significant portion of the civil liberties that came out of the 1968 compromise. The liberal Democracy in the West suffered a heavy

January 21, 2010: The day corporate dictatorship destroyed the last remnants of US Democracy

globinfo freexchange     As we described many times in this blog, corporate power grew rapidly since the early 70s with the rise of neoliberalism and its subsequent establishment as the dominant culture, especially in the West.  In the motherland of neoliberalism, the United States, corporations essentially legalized corruption in politics during the 70s in order to capture the entire political system and put it under their complete control. As David Harvey describes in his book A Brief History of Neoliberalism :                          The supposedly ‘progressive’ campaign finance laws of 1971 in effect legalized the financial corruption of politics. A crucial set of Supreme Court decisions began in 1976 when it was first established that the right of a corporation to make unlimited money contributions to political parties and political action committees was protected under the First Amendment guaranteeing the rights of individuals (in this instance corporations) to freedom of speec

Jeremy Corbyn on freeing Julian Assange, the working class, Brazil, Peru & ending Ukraine War

Democracy Now!   In Washington, D.C., human rights and free speech advocates gather today for the Belmarsh Tribunal, focused on the imprisonment of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange has been languishing for close to four years in the harsh Belmarsh prison in London while appealing extradition to the United States on espionage charges. If convicted, Assange could face up to 175 years in jail for publishing documents that exposed war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Chief prosecutor puts Greece’s rule of law to the test

by Sarantis Michalopoulos   Part 1   Greek chief prosecutor Isidoros Ntogiakos caused shockwaves on Tuesday after he ruled that the independent authority responsible for privacy issues (ADAE) cannot conduct audits of telecommunication companies to find out who is under surveillance by Greek secret services. He even threatened the members of the Hellenic Authority for Communication Security and Privacy (ADAE) with criminal prosecution. The so-called “Greek Watergate” scandal, according to which several politicians, journalists and businessmen have been surveilled by Greek secret services by the conservative government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis (EPP), is considered an open wound for the country and the upcoming general elections.   Mitsotakis has tried to keep his distance so far, saying he was not aware of the wiretapping cases, although the first law he enacted as a prime minister was to take secret services under his remit. ADAE is an independent authority whose role is pr
