Slavery in Greece?

Dave Emory’s entire life­time of work is avail­able on a flash dri­ve that can be obtained here. [1] (The flash dri­ve includes the anti-fas­cist books avail­able on this site.)

[2]COMMENT: SWAMP has spot­ted a very impor­tant sto­ry.

In our dis­cus­sion of the “op” exe­cut­ed by Eddie the Friend­ly Spook, we have not­ed that the polit­i­cal forces embod­ied [3] in the “Peach Fuzz Fas­cist” (Snow­den) favor the seces­sion of the South, believe the Con­fed­er­a­cy was right, and are in favor of slav­ery [4], past, present and future.

A very omi­nous pro­pos­al has been float­ed by the Greek gov­ern­ment [5]. (See text excerpts below.) Not only does it sug­gest the pos­si­bil­i­ty that the stag­ger­ing unem­ploy­ment rate among Greek youth be solved by “unpaid” employ­ment, [5] but floats the pos­si­bil­i­ty that job­less young peo­ple be shipped abroad!

We won­der to where they will be shipped? What are they sup­posed to do when they get there? 

All is not well in the “Cra­dle of Democ­ra­cy!”

“Europe’s Mod­est Pro­posal To End Unem­ploy­ment: Slav­ery” by Tyler Dur­den; zerohedge.com; 1/24/2014. [6]

EXCERPT: Hav­ing spent weeks talk­ing amongst them­selves about the chron­ic and dan­ger­ous rise of youth unem­ploy­ment in Europe (as we warned here), the Cen­ter of Plan­ning and Eco­nomic Research in Greece has pro­posed a con­tro­ver­sial mea­sure. As GreekRe­porter reports, the mea­sure includes unpaid work for the young and unem­ployed up to 24 years old, so that com­pa­nies would have a strong motive to hire young employ­ees.

“Unpaid” work sounds a lot like slav­ery to us... but it gets bet­ter; the report also sug­gested “export­ing young unem­ployed per­sons.”

“Cen­tre of Plan­ning and Eco­nomic Research in Greece has pro­posed a con­tro­ver­sial mea­sure in order to deal with the prob­lem of increas­ing unem­ploy­ment in the coun­try.

The mea­sure includes unpaid work for the young and unem­ployed up to 24 years old, so that com­pa­nies would have a strong motive to hire young employ­ees. Prac­ti­cally, what is pro­posed is the abo­li­tion of the basic salary for a year. At the same time the “export” of young unem­ployed per­sons was also pro­posed to oth­er coun­tries abroad, as Greek busi­nesses do not appear able to hire new per­son­nel.”

Whether it’s Europe in the 1930’s or the US dur­ing the same peri­od (con­flicts between strik­ers, the Nation­al Guard and armed mili­tias), unem­ploy­ment can cre­ate a pow­er­ful cock­tail of unrest. But turn­ing your nation’s young into slaves does not seem like a good solu­tion to us. . . .

“Con­tro­ver­sial Pro­pos­al for Tack­ling Unem­ploy­ment” by Niko­le­ta Kalmou­ki; Greek Reporter; 1/24/2014. [5]

EXCERPT: Cen­tre of Plan­ning and Eco­nom­ic Research in Greece has pro­posed a con­tro­ver­sial mea­sure in order to deal with the prob­lem of increas­ing unem­ploy­ment in the coun­try.

The mea­sure includes unpaid work for the young and unem­ployed up to 24 years old, so that com­pa­nies would have a strong motive to hire young employ­ees. Prac­ti­cal­ly, what is pro­posed is the abo­li­tion of the basic salary for a year. At the same time the “export” of young unem­ployed per­sons was also pro­posed to oth­er coun­tries abroad, as Greek busi­ness­es do not appear able to hire new per­son­nel.

Accord­ing to the Nation­al Con­fed­er­a­tion of Hel­lenic Com­merce, unem­ploy­ment espe­cial­ly hits the ages between 15–24. The unem­ploy­ment rate in Greece stands at 24.6% while 57.2% of young peo­ple are with­out a job. The major­i­ty of the unem­ployed (71%) have had no work for 12 months or more, while 23.3 % of the total have nev­er worked. There were 3,635,905 peo­ple employed and 1,345,387 unem­ployed. . . .
