That Greek suicide rates have exploded over the past two years is very much expected: after all, in order to preserve the sanctity of the failed monetary status quo, the Greek economy and its less than prosperous population have been sacrificed by the legacy elite and the wealthy. The socio-economic collapse has resulted in a total crash in economic production of goods and services, an nosebleed-inducing unemployment rate which increasing at a mindboggling 1% per month, and the rise of neo-nazism, with the Golden Dawn party now the third most popular political organization in the country (and rising rapidly). Sure enough, Kathimerini has confirmed that the” Greece’s suicide rate increased by 37 percent between 2009 – 2011, To Pontiki newspaper reported quoting police data. The data, which was presented in Parliament by Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias following a request by SYRIZA MPs, showed that 3,124 suicides and attempted suicides have occurred in the debt-stricken country since 2009, the weekly newspaper said.” As noted, no surprise in this very tragic headline on the day in which the world’s still wealthiest nation gives gratitude for all its “wealth.”

Yet while the causes of the depressing Greek reality are well-known, what may be less known are the concurrent events which are taking place to help “fix” the country. Because if one listened to the Troika, the Eurogroup’s now monthly 4:00 AM stressed and confused press conferences, and the Greek government, the people are suffering solely due to “austerity” which has to take place to restore balance.
