Drachmageddon? Middle-class poverty. Feral Gangs. Neo-Nazis. Athens Waits For The Volcano To Explode

Antonis Perris was a devoted son. When his elderly mother was diagnosed with Alzheimers four years ago, there was no question of putting her in a state facility.
He would care for her at home in Athens and they would face the future together.
But then things started getting very much worse.
The problem is that I was not prepared when the economic crisis hit and I do not have enough money in my account, wrote the 60-year-old unemployed musician.
My credit card is overdrawn, we do not have enough food to feed ourselves. I live a drama with no end. Does anyone have a solution for me? World leaders, you who brought this financial crisis, you all need hanging! On the brink: Greeks will go to the polls again on Sunday, and the outcome of their votes will be critical for the country's future.
Perris wrote of his despair in an internet chatroom three weeks ago. Then, one morning, he led his mother on to the roof of their five-storey apartment block. Hand-in-hand, they jumped off.
Not long ago, this episode would have been a national scandal. Today, it is just another tragic footnote to the story of a society on the brink of collapse.
On Monday morning, this modern European nation could be waking up to a nightmare scenario, which runs as follows. The cash machines start drying up. Supermarket shelves are cleared by families fearful that food supplies will run out.
There are queues round the block for the last dribbles from the petrol pumps, and deliveries come to a halt. Within a day or two, protests have turned to looting and random acts of violence

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.-Robert Heinlein.
You’re right about skills. On a recent thread, there was a guy who vacationed in Athens who claimed there was nothing to see or do. One would think that this was the perfect time for not just Greece but Italy, Spain and the others to zone in on the tourist dollar. If your own country doesn’t have the money, then you bring in outside money. I’m sure a couple hundred of Moochelle’s closest and dearest would jump at the chance to re-visit Spain and do the Old Country gig. Or, on the grassroots level, there’s the world wide web to market a community’s old world crafts.
Thanks again for the ping and the post, gentlemen.
Here in FLA, we have a number of trigger events coming up that could ignite the accelerant.
First, it’s Hurricane Season again. While a number of Floridians have endured storm after storm through the years, there is ALWAYS panic-buying and raiding the shops prior to a storm. Additionally, the infrastructure is fragile(power, water, telecomms). If we get a strong one again, like the 2004 season or a repeat of Andrew in ‘92, we could see a Katrina scenario again.
In August, we have the RNC National Convention here in Tampa. The city mayor already tried a gun-grab, ordering that there be no firearms in the city limits during the convention; the Governor shot it down. Internet traffic shows the Leftists plan to disrupt the convention by any means necessary. And the neighborhoods of feral blacks are just looking for an excuse to “party”.
And no one can predict when or where the Zimmerman case will go down. The race-industry has already proclaimed they will start riots, regardless of whether there’s an acquittal or a conviction.
Myself and The Bride have had dinner-table discussions in recent weeks, along with the wedding plans. We are making ourselves harder targets, and planning out expansions to our preps. And since we’re both vets, we’re going to teach the daughters basic marksmanship.
This article smells of lib msm spinning.
I have little sympathy for the pathetic whiner who jumped off the roof with his mom.
Why could the “unemployed musician” not go out in the street and seek work? 60 y/o? That’s young!
Recently I was approached at the Post Office by a lady who appeared to be about 80. She had a five gallon bucket, spoke not a word of English, and was selling tamales 12 for $7. I bought a dozen and watched her for a while. She was probably clearing $200/day making tamales at night and peddling them during they day.
I respect her work ethic and self-sufficient attitude far more than I respect the whiny euroweenies.
Putting Neo-nazi’s in the title, a small minority in Greece, while failing to mention the violent anarcho-socialists who have been a major part of all Greek riots does show bias.
Reminds me of the pictures I’ve seen of NYC in days past and the guys who went door to door sharpening knives...or, the rag-men pushing carts down the streets.
The elitists do the divide and conquer for power game. They stoke racial/tribal competition and envy and class envy. Judges have systematically undone the constitution.
The people in the US did not vote for, nor do they approve of, Obamacare. They did not vote for, nor did they approve of the Federal Reserve. Roosevelts welfare programs were imposed via the removal of judges to get around the constitution. We did not vote for the foreign invasion of our borders. These and other super destructive events and programs are things the elite did - the elite’s propaganda media, judges, lawyers and politicans.
The Kennedys highlighted this elitist, coordinated attack on the country by giving special awards to politicans who showed the ‘courage’ to go against the American people, constitution and interest.
So it’s the voters’ fault for not having the ability and sense to hang people who violate the constitution and abuse them for treason. There would have been no media, judges or politicans to help in that. But other than street ‘justice’, there is nothing voters in America can really do to stop the elitists from wrecking the country as serves their total power and control.
Never seen that one - perfect fit for our current politicians. Thanks.
“wrote the 60-year-old unemployed musician. “
This is Greece, so it should be “60-year old RETIRED musician”. He’s been retired for 10 years.
Days past? I just had my knives sharpened by a guy driving around the neighborhood in a pick up truck. And everyday I walk to an open market, where farmers bring in their produce, and buy fresh veggies and fruit. Being armed in a large city to protect yourself is the first rule. But living in a city with an infrastructure of oil refineries, hospitals, transportation, outlining farms and people being innovative to survive is my solution to a melt down. And as long as the dollar remains “legal tender” and the police and the militia are paid with it....shop keepers and farmers will have to accept it. The only way to survive is WITH OTHER PEOPLE, not alone. I was in eastern Europe when the SHTF and I can tell you being alone or out in the country is a death sentence.
And how did Obama get to the position of imposing what he has? And why is Obama in a near tie with the voters (or so the media says) with someone who has not imposed all these unconstitutional things? People are in denial if they want to claim they didn’t know what Obama was going to do, he said as much and directly associated with people who demanded as much all long before being elected.
Without the voter’s basic consent he and others never could have done these things.
California is an excellent example. As the economic situation goes from bad to worse the voters doubled down on the idiots that are causing the problems and tossed more “evil” Republicans to the side saying the “gridlock” was their fault. The very gridlock that was barely preventing the state from going into the abyss.
Our problems start with what voters vote for with fantasy land economic/moral beliefs where the real world will have none of it.
I should have added “for most people” it is a death sentence.
Obama got elected through the elite’s foreign invasion, anti-constitution/anti-American racial divide and conquer stragegy and doctrines and through total control of the media and both parties.
The constitutional republic can not survive this treason from within. The cultural cleansing and history revision, poor education, race hate diversity programs, mass media propaganda, foreigners who never understand the freedom and wealth they came to share, the corruption... It is not surviving it. We have one generation that remembers the contitution remaining and that generation witnessed the elitists undo it through the public schools and universities, courts, media propaganda, and backstabbing politicans.
Hey Sarge have you guys picked out the style of ankle bracelet she’s going to give you? ;-)
Ankle bracelet? NOpe.
Dog collar, on the other hand...
My credit card is overdrawn, we do not have enough food to feed ourselves. I live a drama with no end. Does anyone have a solution for me? World leaders, you who brought this financial crisis, you all need hanging!
So he admits he lived as a grasshopper, did not prepare, wasted his time and money strumming his mandolin and lying in the sun, and yet blames "World leaders" for his plight. GTFO.
Here's a thought for you, buddy: how about you go get a real job?
The ants are tired of your kind.
