The New Greek Tragedy
It’s the year 2012 AD and you’d think humanity, with all the advances in technology and communication, would have converted more of the explosion of information into knowledge and wisdom!
Sadly, we have not.
No, what history has allowed us to do with new technology is simply better-document the triumph of human nature over personal responsibility, accountability and moral courage.
Personally, I attribute this to an increasingly luxurious life provided by modern society offering far less opportunity to develop personal character, creating a direct and instant race to full depravity. In other words, the shortest path of least resistance to base human behavior.
All issues of the day are subordinate to the impending financial destruction of the western civilization. Greek tragedies were popular as an art form in the theaters of Athens 2,500 years ago; however, today we witness reality instead of entertainment, offering real human suffering — instead of pleasure — to the audience.
I invite you to visit daily as I provide organized headlines based on each day’s news to document what I call the Cultural War within leading to The New Greek Tragedy (both the Greeks and EU’s in general, followed shortly thereafter by most of the western financial world who, financially, are leveraged negatively in the extreme).
Eerily and ironically, it strongly parallels the chilling prophecy Nikita Kruschev, who succeeded Joseph Stalin as leader of the Soviet Union, remarked to Ezra T. Benson, who served as the Secretary of Agriculture during the Eisenhower administration, during Kruschev’s visit. Kruschev said it will be the slow injection of socialist/communist principles into America, not nuclear missiles, that would destroy our nation.
And like frogs sitting in a slow-boiling pot, we're just sitting back and watching.
