Greece: 5th Day of Riots; General Strike; Chaos

  • Fifth Day of Rioting
  • Athens international airport closed
  • Athens bus, metro and suburban train systems disrupted
  • Teachers, journalists, bank clerks and public sector workers also expected to strike

Check out the videos here from BBC News for a graphic account of what the breakdown of civilization looks like.

Like I said, this is a preview of what will be coming our way, and there is little we can do about it. The events have already been set into motion. The only, and the most important thing you can control, is who you will be through it all. Not how you will respond, who you will be.

For more on this, see Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl.

This will not be the end of the world, though it may feel like it as we're living through it. It is not.

There's agent provacateurs working overtime

Posing as anarchists. Policemen have been caught causing vandalism, acts of violence to arrest the peaceful group of rioters
( )

Watch out if you're in a riot for people who are violent calling for vandalism and who cover their face (in case you didn't know they already have everyone's face on file-the only reason people cover their face is to protect themselves from getting caught as a police officer).

I can second Man's Search for Meaning book, but...

color me not afraid.

These guys are no Ron Paul revolutionaries

Everything I've read from them sounds Marxist. The real tip-off is that people who respect liberty and private property don't tend to go on a rampage burning private property and looting.

I certainly wouldn't be surprised to find this is the case, anywhere in the world. I havent seen any evidence of that... this is a student protest against the disparity of pay vs. work (especially with degrees) and the lack of personal liberty.

This is a good example of how little it can take, though. One example of police brutality and the nation explodes... we have police brutality on a much bigger scale. Something will break, and then the people will.

frankel book

Used to have a copy. Talked about how people adapted to brutal condions. They became thankful and some very jelous over some of the simplest things. I remember thinking this former Jewish holocaust victim learned some very basic profound Christian principals on being content and thankful in what ever place one finds themselves in.

It won't happen here....

Americans are too easily pacified. Give 'em tax credit or stimulus check and they are good to go for a while. It's the " I still have my chips and coke" syndrome....LOL
I think we had more happen here in the last few years than Greece and nobody is rioting. Maybe we have grown our government big enough to finally fear it.
I dunno....just not seeing it happen here.

If Only Americans got this

If Only Americans got this angry when the police killed people without good reason. We are a Nation of Sheep. In Greece these cops have been charged with murder. In the U.S they'd get suspended, with pay (at the most).

Shows what pussies

we Americans truly are.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Lest we forget this is the birth place of democracy

and descendants of the Spartans. The Greeks love their freedom and I for one am glad to see they haven't forgot where they came from.

These are the descendants of the Athenians who were enemies

of the Spartans.

Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!


what an un-fluoridated population can accomplish when pushed to their limits.

"You are a den of Vipers.I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out."

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Are you ready?

Ask yourself that question. This happened in Greece overnight and shows no sign of stopping.

It CAN happen here... The only thing that we're lacking is the spark. We've got growing unemployment, a police state, a government that's sending trillions of dollars to the very banks that created the problem, a federal reserve that's issuing new FRNs like there's no tomorrow... It's like a hot day late in the summer after no rain for months and the wind is starting to blow... all we need is a spark and the whole place will go up in flames.

So get ready. Get your weapons, ammo, gas masks (protects against tear gas, duh!), food, water and a plan.

I just have a hard time

I just have a hard time believing that would happen here. We see police brutality every day and there are no protests. We are too desensitized. Too brainwashed.

That is exactly what my Greek friend said about his own country.

Hard to imagine, yes, but

Hard to imagine, yes, but all it will take is a critical event for us to reach that tipping point. The powers that be have been becoming increasingly blatant, emboldened, and audacious. I believe that the people will begin to wake up to this sooner or later.

general strike

is a total success.
I bet governement days in power are numbered.
