The stigmatized Greeks - Humanity and Legacy within a Disillusioned Europe

Extracts from the article:

Watching yesterday the opening speech of the final phase of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s election campaign, I was pleasantly surprised to hear in her argument that “European integration is about the protection of human dignity” that Germans should stop targeting and stigmatizing Greeks as lazy and thieves…

Despotism aims to suppress, minds and the souls of the free, the dignity of the individual,
the ability to think, the essence of life. And Mrs. Merkel knows that despotism can only lead
to one outcome: Civilization and humanity to descend to chaos.

At more or less the same time Churchill was stating that “Heroes fight like Greeks” and not the other way around, he was orchestrating the destruction of Greece during and right after the War... While the rest of Europe was rebuilding itself, we were fighting their wars in our country… Where is justice, magnanimity or nobility in all of this?

Goebbels’s children are not to be blamed for the wrongdoings of their dad! They were also victims and helpless martyrs, like all the millions of children that were “sacrificed”, whether those were German or Greek, Japanese or American, Bulgarian or British and so forth… 

What have we done? What have we forced our children to become? Traumatized cynics, without a civic purpose but “political correctness”, an anathema to collective responsibility, alien citizens with valid passports of European Union countries that belong in essence to no Union… disillusioned with poisoned souls… 

Mrs. Merkel’s yesterday statement, “European integration is about the protection of human dignity”, is a beacon, a beacon of hope for humanity...
