Yesterday, a retired chemist shot himself in front of the Greek Parliament. In the text , written by him , before shotting himself , he made well known to all of us that he prefers to end his life rather than looking at the garbage bins for food.
Great turmoil caused by the suicide of our fellow man.
Greek Prime Minister for almost 5 months, is a gentleman named Lucas Papademos. He was governor of the Bank of Greece in the late ’90s and early next century (the period when Greece accused that entered the euro area with misleading information – he was the one that cooked the items as central bank governor). Then became vice president of the ECB By 2010. For over 20 years and was familiar and the controler of the economic situation in Greece and the EU. From November 2011 became Prime Minister. He was preffered by NO ONE , he was voted by NO Greeks , he did NOT propose any program to be judged by the Greek people. In the name of consensus and application of the second memorandum , he moved into the prime minister’s office.
This ”Mr.” does not believe the restructuring of debt of Greece – as a good banker – butnonetheless became prime minister to implement the cut debt.
Having performed his duty and tied up Greece , continued the work of GeorgePapandreou , cutting salaries and pensions , putting taxes , abolishing labor rights and killing Greeks.
Once , this gentleman , he learned that one more Greek killed himself , he made this statement:
“It’s tragic a fellow human being to put an end to his life. In these difficult times for our society we must all-state and citizens – to support the people next to us in distress “
It is unbelievable that , a “man” , “prime minister” of a country reacts in such a way , when he has lost one more fellow human being.
Let’s get down to one by one on the phrases of the text:
1) “It’s a tragedy our fellow man to give end to his life”
A general observation.
He gives us the impression that something happened – so general and vague – without even he has been touched by the fact. Distances himself completely from the event and do not recognize any responsibility for the financial and personal deadlock in the government of the country and to himself. The tragedy of the situation is a rhetorical matter of act that is designed to emphasize that all these happen every day and everywhere. He starts to say that whatever happened , happened , and not to deal with such things because there are worse.
2) “… In these difficult times for our society …”
He continues its equivocation.
These hard times have not been random. It is the result of incorrect decisions and policies.
Tough times… so … . Times are not getting tough on their own willing. Times getting tough by situations. Who created these situations?
He says NO word about the political and legal responsibilities of his own government and its predecessors.
Came hard times then …
Accidentally found ourselves in this situation …
To whom however came hard times?
For society, he says.
Who is society?
Society is the poor , the worker , the pensioner , the banker , the manufacturers , the fraudsters , the rich.
I do not see tough times came for the whole society …
3) “… We all-state and citizens – …”
You suggest that we should all …
Even those who, deliberately brought us to this situation?
Even you yourself and your government?
State and citizens: An unreliable state (see the amendments passed these days) that all he has done until today is to condemn a people to unreliability , cronyism , individualism , poverty , death. Citizens who have been separated into those that are damaged by the crisis and those who are not touched by the crisis (as shown in the polls).
4) “… To support the people next to us in distress.”
So you propose to support the people next to us.
So i inform you that THE SOCIAL TISSUE HAS BEEN DISSOLVED COMPLETELY.
When every one of us has to face enormous burdens , that you and your predecessors continuously loading us, how to find the courage and strength to stand by his neighbor?
WE ARE ALL DESPAIR.
What you mean is that : We will support each other and you will be attacking us?
