The lies of politicians fly into your face these days. Something must be wrong in the world and in particular in Europe. Its 'outpost' to the East, Cyprus gets its treat from it now, after Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Spain, Slovenia and Italy. France may be next, Belgium and the Dutch. Now Cyprus is cornered. Its people would have to pay for debts others created. However the moment of truth has come for this Europe. Extortion, theft, violence and lies are the means "governments", represented in Brussels' European parliament and commissions, apply to create a sort of Maoist-like utopia for themselves and criminal financial gangs surrounding them. That is why I am -for a major part- against the institute of the 'centralized State', because of its dire consequences for society. Brussels has evolved into a malign cancer spreading all over the eurozone and beyond. Were I in doubt about that, my doubts would disappear after the treatment the Cypriot people got. To steal savings and reserves from businessmen and small savers, hiking all kind of "taxations" (other word for theft) and levies (not only on Cyprus) to refinance creditors: banks, monetary funds and ultimately 'the state' itself, crosses the limits from what I suppose to be trustworthy and useful. Let's not complain though, then we voted those incompetent scatterbrains in and seem not in the mood or able to vote or get them out again!
What we do see might be the beginning of the end of Europe as a civilized cooperative group of countries, working together for a better future under the direction of competent and trustworthy parliaments and governments! It may be the end of democracy as well.
Who would keep his/her money in the bank any longer in Europe? Who would buy more than minimally necessary to avoid paying high value added taxes or duties on goods? Who would have children to grow up in this mess? Paying as minimally as possible to the 'state' is the best way to get it reorganized. Why pay any taxes after all, then what do we really (!) get in return? Do we need all those political 'dreams', squandering of money and the state's harassment messing up our freedom and lives? The Cyprus Incident of today will get its record in the later history books. If the Cypriots stand firm, this could be the turning point for the ill-fated socio-political utopia called EU, its fantasy-currency and its insolvent pawnshops called 'banks'.
