Alliances Inside the EU: Undermining Unity and Cohesion
August 8, 2016

The emergence of new alliances within the EU is a game changing issue that is kept out of public eye. But the process is gaining momentum to change the political landscape of Europe. In a bid to forge an anti-austerity alliance, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has invited the leaders of six southern European Union countries to a conference in Athens on September 9…

Battle for Europe
August 21, 2015

Late last week the Greek Parliament bowed to Berlin’s will and voted to support a package of austerity reforms. This step will come at a steep political price, as it will deepen the split in the ruling SYRIZA party. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, Panagiotis Lafazanis, the leader of the party’s Left Platform and former energy minister, has pledged to «smash the eurozone dictatorship», and Zoe Konstantopoulou, the speaker of the Hellenic Parliament, has stated that she is «not going to support Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras anymore»…

German Panzer Banks Crush Greece, Washington Winces
July 18, 2015

The German paymaster of Europe has subjugated Greece with breathtaking ruthlessness. In 1941, Nazi Germany crushed Greece with its Panzer tanks. Today, without firing a shot, Germany’s Panzer banks have accomplished the same, turning the country into a de facto German «protectorate» whose national assets and sovereignty are being turned over by Berlin’s financial dictate…

The Future of Greece Without Illusions
July 5, 2015

In this country where we live today, on the very soil we tread, the “ideologist” of the Athenian Republic, Protagoras, proclaimed “Man is the measure of all things”, for the first time in the history of humanity. The Greek people, […]

Greece Faces New Kind of Coup
July 4, 2015

According to the Financial Times, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras sent a letter to the three major money lenders saying he is ready to accept almost all the conditions proposed by the country’s international creditors at the weekend, marking the latest attempt to keep Greece in the eurozone. The Prime Minister said he would accept all of the terms proposed with just minor exceptions. He agreed to the changes in the country’s value added tax system but asked to keep a special 30 percent discount for the Greek islands untouched…

The ECB’s Noose Around Greece: How Central Banks Harness Governments
March 21, 2015

Remember when the infamous Goldman Sachs delivered a thinly-veiled threat to the Greek Parliament in December, warning them to elect a pro-austerity prime minister or risk having central bank liquidity cut off to their banks? It seems the European Central Bank (headed by Mario Draghi, former managing director of Goldman Sachs International) has now made good on the threat.

Germany between a rock and a hard place
January 31, 2015

We are only beginning to evaluate what SYRIZA’s victory may mean for the Eurozone. As a matter of fact, this victory is calling Germany’s bluff and forces into the open its double talk about the Eurozone. Yet, deprived as it is of room for manoeuver, Germany might react violently and indirectly provoke the dissolution of the Eurozone, even though it is presently its mean beneficiary. In order to make this understandable, we must here remember a few facts.

Greece Eurozone Exit Is In The Wind. Is it A Harbinger of EU Disintegration Process?
January 13, 2015

One of the issues to hit the news in early 2015 is the possibility of Greece leaving the eurozone, or, even, the European Union. German weekly Spiegel reported that Chancellor Angela Merkel now believed that the eurozone could cope with Athens leaving the common currency in case the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) wins the January 25 parliamentary election. Rejections followed (allegedly Chancellor Merkel said something else) but there is no smoke without fire. The Greece eurozone exit has been in the wind since a long time. On the one hand, it can remedy the eurozone economic situation. On the other hand, the very fact of such a possibility being discussed could be perceived as a harbinger of EU disintegration process about to kick off…
