I will prewarn, some of my readers may find this offensive, not the first time I have posted something of the sort, but I have, dear reader, always said it the way I see it.
The elections of this week have demonstrated how far modern Greeks have changed from their ancestors of but a hundred years a ago. A modern Greek would have welcomed Hitler's stability, and never have risked fighting like their grandfathers, who took on German paratroopers with pitchforks.
A modern Greek is a small pathetic man in comparison to his illustrious forefathers who in the 1820s led the rebellion against the Ottoman Empire before securing the aid of the great powers. They risked more then their lives or the lives of their families but the genocide of their entire people. The Ottomans had called in their Egyptian vassals and promised them all of of Greece for Arab colonization in exchange for crushing and wiping out the Greeks.
But than again this is going to happen anyways, just a bit slower and 200 years later as the EU floods Greece with Islamics of every stripe, even as Greeks starve in the streets. But a people willing to surrender everything for the illusion of stability, even the lives of their children are a small and pathetic people, in truth a small animal. They are not men but animals for the simple reason that they have chosen to be as such. They have surrendered their faith in Christ, turned their backs on God, for the addiction of easy living, and even as the high ends and the reality of their addiction becomes apparent, like pathetic beings they crawl back to their masters, even at the merest hint of another fix.
