Globalizing Greece 24-7

Phylax, a Greek neo-conservative Greek blogger, who like the typical wide eyed Greek one time visitor to America, likes the new deal about extended shopping hours in Greece, as I've heard so many times before, he likens the new globalist measures to his American experience:

When I lived in New York, I was within walking distance from a super market that was open 24 hours a day. I used to go do food shopping after midnight sometimes; once or twice, I had even done my purchases at 2 o'clock in the morning. I was surprised at the number of people who were doing the same.

This guy certainly is a paradox, he wants to have Greek retailers and Greece emulate the American 27-7 lifestyle, yet cringes at the thought of roving hordes of third-world illegals that keep such a economic machine and malfunctioning impersonal global society as its driving market force, amongst other malfunctions. Mind you the idea of 24 hour retailing is a very American concept. I'll never forget the chat I had with a Jewess in Paris' De Gaulle airport and her irritation at the French tradition of closing the entire country down for business on Sunday, a religious idea , that ironically France, the first secular revolution in the world, still follows to this day.

I'm not against business per say, but there is some charm in the fact that Greece is not always open for business like America seems to always be in, until now that is, things in Greece are in change fast, and whoever said that Greece is NOT an American colony in so many ways.

The mall-ification of the world is Jewish at its core. Where Mammon rules supreme, so does the Jew.

The imposition of the herd mentality. Like Heraclitus said, the masses are like somnambulists. The follow and follow like lemmings. The fad now is to turn cities into shopping malls. Another aspect and identity of Greek life and idisioncracy being trampled upon ( call it charm if you like). Degeneracy and decay is advancing at a rapid pace.

Interesting critique Hellenic Nationalist. If you look at the bright side, the blogger you are critiquing at least wants Greece to only be populated by Greeks. However, Greece adopting American culture by sacrificing its own is not right.

Anyway, adelphe Eurylochus does make some interesting points here. However, eventually the degeneracy and decay will have to undergo a period of catharsis.

The Greeks today are well aware of the internal problems in their own country. Like I said before, it is only a matter of time before a period of catharsis is underway.

Later adelphia.
