Dear Dr. Archer,
I am Greek. I wanted to contribute with a short comment about the economic crisis which is now swamping Greece. As I hear, 2500 Greek people have killed themselves since the crisis, but the media won't attest so easily the total number.
Last Saturday a protest march for Greece took place in many European cities and New York, for the reason obvious to many now: Greece is an experiment project, to be applied globally.
I could go on forever about the depression it brings to the lives of Greek people. They say they feel there is no reason to be in Greece, and they have no hope for the future.
Young couples who have lost their jobs sometimes have no other resort than to hand over their children to live at a children's shelter, where they are at least fed. The Archbishop has gathered tons of food, as a result of the charity call, and they cook every day for the homeless, and the list is ever increasing.
Salaries have been cut 12 times in the last 2 years. Greece is not expected to come out of the crisis until after 2020. The new measures are doubted to the degree of how effective they can be.
How can something so tragic happen so suddenly? The catastrophe is so huge that many now think it was planned decades ago. Borrowing money from the lenders constantly, until a country can no longer pay the debt.
The point is to have the lender borrowing all the time, till they cannot repay. Obviously the lenders are giving out billions…..or perhaps even trillions. There is a view, according to which lenders need no money; they are rich enough.
Why do they lend? They don't want money in return. If they did, they would have kept their money and not lent it out. They may even erase part of the debt because they want something else: control.
So here we go: What if a financial war has begun, gradually depriving people of money, depriving people of food. If this is achieved, the solution of offering the 'microchip' to each person, by which they can buy and sell, and have access to food at designated big supermarkets, when there will be no food elsewhere, will be the only solution in desperation. But will we ever be deprived of food? That is the next question.
Who remembers the big fires which burned down Greece in the summer of 2007? There were many fires in the US that summer too. Here comes the invention of the genetic seed. Agriculture has been put on control, new seeds are given to be sowed each year; they are the hybrid seeds, which are supposed to produce three times as much harvest, but the plants coming from them will give unfertile seeds. This means they can only be bought from the factory - again control
There will be the day when preserving a natural seed, will be illegal. The same could be applied to those who breed animals. Artificial meat has just been manufactured, factory-made, which tastes just like meat, is nutritious, and cheap but without the animal. Let's remember the 'mad cow disease', and 'chicken flu', both of which were so scary, and people stopped eating beef and chicken for quite a while.
Artificial meat will arrive again when needed. Let's be aware, because the crisis involves each one of us. If or when we are deprived of food, the chip implant will be offered for free, to those who want to have access to food and money. It will be implanted in a person's hand, instead of it being inside a plastic card, as it is now.
I was interested to read about the Mondex card, owned by Master Card, whose name is derived by: mon = money, dex = mano dextra, right hand: money implanted in your right hand. The name says it all. With the Internet, everyone can research and find out by themselves, information which was before found only in books and in the Bible's Revelation.
In times of misery, the amount of help by people who donate to charity, is extreme and touching. Percy Bysshe Shelley said, "We are all Greeks,". He could see deep from the history he studied, into the future.
And a little boy from Cyprus, as I watched on television, was donating food as well. He was in tears as he said "I want to send this food for the Greek children who are poor." My heart broke when I saw him crying, and I cried with him.
Thank you for a very interesting read. It does seem that when catastrophe strikes, bringing fear into the hearts of many, the result is that we give up a little more freedom and a little more control of our lives. The introduction of artificial meat, is shocking..... and yet we will get used to this, too, I’m afraid.
Every country can learn from history, and yet sometimes history is ignored and nothing is learned. Charity is alive, and many people would like to donate, but not all are able. Compassion and the human spirit are alive and well by most, but unfortunately there are always those who desire power and control over others. The key is that we maintain our personal freedom and not allow this to happen.
Your timely letter is important and shows how we all need to be aware of what happens globally. We are all tied to one another; what affects you affects me. The world is now a global community; let's all do our part to make it the best world for both ourselves and our children.
Thanks again, Marcia, for this interesting article.
