Living through collapse: Greeks resort to eating out of trash cans

Greece has literally been on fire the past few days, with protesters burning businesses and buildings in response to the poor economic conditions and the austerity plans that would be tied to any kind of bailout for the Mediterranean country. Finally, the media is picking up on the story, but the real questions should be why did they not see it sooner and why are they not seeing the parallels to America?

The New York Times reports:

By many indicators, Greece is devolving into something unprecedented in modern Western experience. A quarter of all Greek companies have gone out of business since 2009, and half of all small businesses in the country say they are unable to meet payroll. The suicide rate increased by 40 percent in the first half of 2011. A barter economy has sprung up, as people try to work around a broken financial system. Nearly half the population under 25 is unemployed. Last September, organizers of a government-sponsored seminar on emigrating to Australia, an event that drew 42 people a year earlier, were overwhelmed when 12,000 people signed up. Greek bankers told me that people had taken about one-third of their money out of their accounts; many, it seems, were keeping what savings they had under their beds or buried in their backyards. One banker, part of whose job these days is persuading people to keep their money in the bank, said to me, “Who would trust a Greek bank?”

It later adds:

For months, Greece has sat at the epicenter of an economic crisis that is threatening the foundations of Europe and that has the potential to bring new waves of economic upset to America. The latest austerity plan meant to satisfy Greece’s creditors and allow for new infusions of financial aid may have averted involuntary default — and a global economic downturn — but will nonetheless make life for ordinary Greeks even more difficult. The plan reduces the minimum wage by more than 20 percent, mandates thousands of layoffs and reduces some pensions, probably ensuring that strikes and demonstrations will continue to be a feature of the Greek landscape.

On radio this morning, Glenn read from the report “It’s not uncommon to see decently dressed Greeks discreetly rummaging through garbage bins for food. A new book about how the country survived the Nazi occupation — “Starvation Recipes” — has become a surprise hit.”

Glenn jokingly paged the head of his publishing division to say that they should be publishing a similar book.

“All of these things I’ve told would come, and I’ve told you to prepare for,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that he was routinely mocked for some of his predictions by people like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, but the Greek people would likely not find those jokes amusing now.

The NYT article also notes a strange sense of relief that has washed over the Greek people. But why?

“They knew the reckoning was coming. And at least they’re dealing with the truth now. The truth will set you free even though it will make you miserable at first. It will set you free. I think Americans actually long for the truth. We’ll make it. And we’ve made it before. And we will help the people in Europe that haven’t made it. We’ll help them. Just as we always do. If we don’t lose our faith. If we don’t lose what makes us truly Americans,” Glenn explained.

“Greece is at the beginning of this cycle. What’s going to happen in Europe is going to be a rerun of the 1930s but it will sweep the world,” Glenn said.

    Wow, this is so scary! I really hope people prepare here at home so their not forced to rummage through trash in order to find a meal. My wife and I have been preparing and trying to help others as Glenn has suggested. We have been getting small monthly shipments of freeze dried food for about a year or longer. Its amazing how fast it adds up! We also became distributors in order to help others do the same. http://www.mindyvaughan.shelfreliance.com This link is for ANYONE who wants AMAZING options that other companies don’t offer. I really just want to help people prepare. Thank you Glenn for always being there. God bless you. :)

    The thing is if we fail to heed the warning started by Greece; we will face the same outcome here, just on a massively larger order of magnitude. We will face hard times soon enough; the choices we face are do we start making them now while there is still time or wait until they are needed and become draconian to the extreme.

    I liked your comment just to keep it near the top. Why? Because it needs to be there. Your dialogue needs to be seen by decent people so they know what kinds of attacks to expect from people like you. Usually you’re marginalized and end up on the bottom. Hopefully others will follow my example and keep it near the top.

    Beck never claimed to be a prophet. In fact, Beck used to constantly play down his own expertise. Beck has relied on economic experts for years to help him understand the truth. All one has to do is watch any one of the many episodes Beck made at either CNN or at FOX. He did a lot on the economy back then. What made Beck different is that when he would get economic experts on his show saying “crisis is coming” Beck supported them, and emphasized the importance of what they were saying.

    Meanwhile, the liberal “journalists” that you follow disagreed or outright dismissed such experts, or simply flooded them with “alternative” opinions. We’ve all seen it. One economist in one window saying we need to tax and regulate less saying that if we don’t we’re headed for disaster, predicting socialism would destroy everyone, starting with vulnerable countries like Greece. Then, three to four other windows with liberals or Democrat politicians naysaying the warnings…

    You’re so dishonest, I’ll bet you can’t even bring yourself to acknowledge that Bush warned about the housing market, Fannie and Freddie, and all those other fun things that contributed to the market collapse YEARS before it happened. I’ll bet you can’t even bring yourself to acknowledge Barney Frank and Pelosi repeatedly going on television telling people everything was all right. I’ll bet you can’t even bring yourself to acknowledge how much money Pelosi’s family has made from the salvaging of AIG. Or, how about the ridiculous number of waivers for taxes and health insurance in San Francisco… Pelosi’s back yard.

    I remember Beck talking to Peter Schiff. I remember Beck talking to Ben Stein. I remember Beck having a parade of economists and political experts on his shows telling it like it is, and having idiots like you traveling around on the Internet attempting to “put out fires”, denying everything said, even when morons like Chris Matthews, who didn’t even understand what was being said, supported Beck because of his integrity and telling it straight style.

    You don’t like Beck because you’re a nutjob liberal. It has nothing to do with Beck being wrong. You know that the media has largely ignored important issues. You know that the media overwhelmingly supported the “Arab Spring” and the bailouts of Europe. You know it. You can’t deny it. So, instead, all you can do is say that other people were saying it… Yeah, they were. On Glenn Beck’s show, while you and your ilk were denying it.

    Get a new line you repulsive propagandist.

    The following numbers were presented on ABC News – which we know is not adversarial to the Administration
    The Obama Administration has submitted it’s Budget to Congress – It won’t be passed because the Congress is dysfunctional? Or is it maybe that it just shouldn’t be passed. 
    The Budget is for $3,800,000,000,000
    ABC submitted the following analogy. If the budget is compared to an average family with a budget of $38,000 this is how it would break out. All you have to do is just drop the last 8 zeros and it would go like this.
    $3,800,000,000,000
     Budget                                                           =          $38,000
    Income (based on Federal Income)          =          $29,000
    Debt this year for our example family    =          -$9,000
    Our sample family already has a current debt of $153,000
    Back to real numbers – The Federal Debt is $15,000,000,000,000
    So add 8 zeros back on to our sample family budget and this gets added to the debt – $900,000,000,000
    I can’t see a problem here – unless the smoke from the fires in Greece gets in your eyes!

    I work and live part of the year in a working class suburb of Athens – marketing our products to Greek shipping companies. Our business is surprisingly good – even though the shipping industry is suffering very low charter rates. Indeed – many are suffering. but Greeks are survivors – having been through extended tough times before. Many who live and work in Athens come from more than 135 or so populated islands where their families have small farms. At least these good folks can go back and live to some extent off the land. Of course, Greece is surrounded by water – and there are many fish in the sea. Most Greeks also have very strong family and religious values. So as tough as it is – I think they are better positioned to endure this forced austerity than we Americans are.

    The violence you see on TV is exaggerated – most of it occuring in a four-block square area of central Athens. The vast majority of the population simply does what it has to to survive – and does not get involved in these melees. But the reasons for what has happened are clear. Central banks were always willing to finance Greece and its very corrupt socialist politicians. It is almost as if this financing was purposeful – a way to control. of course, the Greek people bought into the freebies – the generous pensions – while ignoring the corruption – the latter being endemic in Greece for centuries. The bankers are not stupid. I don’t think  they ever expected to have the loans paid back – but I do believe they expected one day to control the government – and to eventually milk everything out of the country it can. Nobody likes this new, appointed Goldman Sachs president. His “new democratic” oponent, running for the next election – is opposed to the EU bailout. So stay tuned. The deal is not done yet – and I’m thinking that before too long – Greece will exit the EU and the drachma will return. Better to be dirt poor than a slave of central bankers – some are now thinking. Ironically, Greece, where democracy was born, may eventually teach us all over again about how to regain our liberties.

    I think that the price of seeds and fertilizer will skyrocket very soon. Too bad that most Americans do not know how to raise a garden at a time like we will have to endure if this does spread as it seems bound to do – most certainly if Hussein Obama is re-elected. If you don’t know how to plant and grow potatoes, maybe you should download some instructions while we still have an internet to do so on. Mr. Beck is no liar and he isn’t the only one who sees the train of destruction coming.

    Glenn Beck was let go from Fox because the ultra liberal left
    was once again using intimidation on the businesses that
    advertise on Glenn Becks show. 
    It is my understanding that Fox was bought by another
    person and the new owner needed to make money off of
    the commercials.
    That is why Beck started his own company on the Internet.
    Glenn is the only person who has been telling the American
    people the truth.  I will have to put my faith in God to help
    us through any trying times that come our way.

    Now for a reality check as to why voting will not fix the mess we’re in…… This is the result of unintended consequences caused by ignorant liberal and conservative social engineering. We the people are also to blame for allowing politicians to reward constituents with monies stolen from the producers and not holding the thieves accountable. Many of us over decades, allowed our complacency and greed to cloud our responsibilities and judgment. We are a far cry from the founders and “the greatest generation that ever lived.” Up to almost a decade ago, we scoffed at those trying to warn of impending economic and social disaster. We dismissed them as crazy. We would argue; never happen, we’re too great…. But slowly this perfect storm of declining US and World economic and social conditions has moved well past correcting without causing violent societal upheaval. The American worker has priced himself out of the world economy/workforce and refuses to admit it. Government has assisted our decline with regulation that has stifled innovation and production. Consequently, with the advent of automation, far less workers are required to produce products and foods. We cultivate sheeple. Developing countries with strong family and social group dynamics are willing to do the jobs requiring human dexterity and will do these tasks at a competitive price. We will import and purchase those well made completive priced goods. Leading nations continue the folly of experimenting with social change that rewards idleness, and continue to print false wealth to bolster failed economies. War has become too precise and used to manage behavior; not ugly in its totality and used to change or destroy perverted ideals. Simply put, we have failed at managing ourselves and our population by destroying personal responsibility. A minority of producers feed and support a stagnant and envious world. It’s only a matter of time before the correction. Store food, weapons, hygiene supplies, medicines, precious metals, and items with intrinsic value. Find likeminded trustworthy persons and develop a plan. It will be exhilarating. Good luck.

    Socialism is a centrally planned economy in which the government controls all means of productivity and distribution.
    God has given us all gifts and we use these gifts to work. If the government takes over your ambition to become more and work harder to get ahead then all motivation is taken away. Countries that have socialism have high rates of:
    1-Alcohism
    2-Drug addiction; and
    3-Prostitution
    Socialism is opposed to Christianity and Judaism ambition to use their gifts to work. Also, socialism taxes people so much that the taxpayer cannot afford to have money for them to share with the kingdom of God by helping world missionaries. Jesus gave us the Great Commission.
    The bible tells us in Isaiah 9:16, “Those who guide this people mislead them and those who are guided are led away.” Confusion is a part of developing a socialistic country. God is not the author of confusion.

    Thank you for sharing the truth with us from the ground up. 

    1.  Media is all about propaganda for their hidden, wierd reasons.  The picture of Greece you painted versus all of media is different.

    2.  Central bankers are not stupid in giving out those loans, they knew they would get bailouts.  They knew those loans would never be paid back.  They did this in order to enslave, and the central bankers do not have the money, they just printed it or got it thru illigimate means and not thru production and creation of value.  Too much debt is enslavement – Americans don’t understand that this is the whole point of the federal reseve bank.  The secret to controlling is not to tell them their goal is to control, but to say you want to help the people, and then employ complicated, shady tactics like bad loans and buying off politicians (ex – with GS money for election) in order to protect the central bankers.

    3.  Increasingly, presidents of countries are being appointed from central banks/world bank/Goldman Sachs instead of free elections.  It is difficult for those that oppose bailouts and want to break up central banks and too big to fail banks to get elected in a fraudless system.

  • jen

    What an act.  Then, you go around supporting Santorum who has no desire to ‘make tough choices’ as he has no plan and has voiced on the Beck program his support for central bankers.  And, when there are candidates who would return to gold standard or reign in those big bankers, then you thrash them endlessly out of fear of coming out of fear. 

    Bottom line – too many people like you that want to stay in a state of fear for dangerous, radical religious reasons and use the liberal ideology (like those those programs that Santorum voted for) as a scapegoat in order to behave yourself.

Yes it was a warning that things would happen, but it is because of either a food shortage or costing too much or maybe just maybe from a biblical standpoint it is a warning to get back in line with God’s will and learn to be led by His Spirit. One of the covenants and promises is that we would never have to seek for bread. Then again it probably is a test for each one of us to over come by the blood of the Lamb and the words of our testimony or the words we speak, because we eat of the fruit of our lips.

    One take the position that either God is real which would seem to be wisdom and that scripture is true which also would be wisdom and the test for us is two things, but both based on the condition of our hearts to love and help where we can and confess solutions from God on how to fix what there is to fix and the promise to us is that whatever we agree upon and touch in His name will be done.

    Do we have the heart first, not to judge and secondly to speak the words of God and third do we have the heart to help. It is all a test to see where we are and out of it one either turns to godly solutions or worldly solutions. It would seem however that salvation would be seeking God for Godly solution, because the truth is it could happen to anyone.

    I also want to say that we have a lot to do with what happens next, because that bad stuff can be stopped, because one of the qualifiers to the end coming is for people to fall away from their faith. For a long time the thrust as been simply about evangelism, but without the maturity people will fall away, because it also says that salvation comes to those by enduring until the end. So giving up is not an option. Walking in God’s love and will is the solution and being willing to walk with other, to help and intercede for is the solution.

    It is a choice that we make each day, because we have control over what we do each day. We are here to be perfected by love. How we find out where we are in the process, is by self examination and willingness to repent and learn to be led by God’s Spirit.

    It has been months and months.
    The moderators have obviously come to the same conclusion as I.
    You are a whiny little bitch who lies about and twists my entries because you can’t handle the truth.
    They won’t ban me…keep flagging and lying…It will make no difference.
    Just know that when you finally leave this earth, which I can only assume will be soon for an angry old codger like you, I will still be here proving you wrong. Feel free to look up at me from Hell and shake your frustrated fist and cry. It is what you are best at.

    If the moderators won’t kick you off for giving lip hugs to glenn, they aren’t going to boot me for telling the truth.
    Enjoy your fresh Santorum milk shake tonight.

    I’m not whining.
    You are pathetic.
    You are boring everyone.
    They won’t keep me off the site.

    Whine, whine, whine, whine. Be a man and take your bigotry and hate somewhere else.

    Thanks. So are many others. It’s a shame that the “flag” numbers don’t show up like the “like” numbers do. I’ve been posting my flags so they will catch the attention of the Moderators. Disqus doesn’t work very good on GB’s site and you never really know if they get the “flags”.

    Thanks again Armand1.

    I fear for us here in the US. I fear for those who think that Greece will never happen here. I have overbought on staples and I’ve begged my family to do the same. And I am lucky because I have some land to grow veggies, and I know how to can my harvest. As far as bartering . . . I have nothing to barter except for some extra spices I’ve purchased, like salt and pepper – a good method of preserving meats. I’m as ready as I can get.
    I believe Glenn is a good thing in awakening us to the possibilities of a global catastrophe. I feel he comes on pretty strong at times, but sometimes that’s just what’s needed to wake us up. We are being attacked by evil, like Soros, and we’ve got to fight back any way we can. The best way I can fight back is to be prepared to survive. You do realize that our grocery stores would run out of all food in about 48 hours. And I wouldn’t rely all on perishable goods because how long do you think our electricity will last. If I were going to invade an area, the first thing I’d hit is the power grids and water and food supply. So, save up some water too. Add three – four drops of bleach to a 2-litre bottle and the water will last quite a while. Keep all cans of good in cool dry areas. Rotate your food supply – the least that will happen is that you’ll fight the coming inflation.
