Europe’s Deliberate Mistake
Is Greece’s economic collapse a case of accidental death, suicide, or something more sinister?
By Richard Palme
How did they get it so wrong? Greece’s economy is so bad that Greek President Carolos Papoulias said his country has “reached the edge of the abyss.” The Greek mess threatens the safety and stability of the entire eurozone. The common currency could be destroyed.
Many commentators—especially the Euroskeptic ones—point out that the project seemed bound to fail from the start. What they miss is that this is literally true. The euro project really was bound to fail—or at least to come close to doing so. It was designed to do so. This may be a crisis, but it is a carefully planned one.
“Berlin has been planning for this crisis before it even adopted the euro. European elites knew it would eventually come. And they will soon present a solution,” wrote the Trumpet’s editor in chief Gerald Flurry last year.
Like a master criminal, the Euro-federalists behind the crisis have made Greece’s financial demise seem like suicide, or accidental death. But really, the detectives in the media are looking at it the wrong way. This is more than a case of reckless spending. It’s a whodunit.
