To leave the EU or not to leave the EU, that is the question? Pick any hour, and you will
have an answer that is good until the next hour passes. While there have been cheers and
encouragement for what the newly elected Syriza party has been telling the EU, that no
more debt enslavement will work for Greek citizens, it could very well turn out that
Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis are
waiting for the best deal for themselves before ensuring that Greek citizens remain so
enslaved. It is extremely difficult to fight the elite’s system and win.
While this is a rather cynical view, it appears that Greece’s new leaders are doing whatever
they can to stay within the failed EU system instead of maintaining a hard-line by refusing
to take on more debt and not pay the current debts owed to the EU. An ace up their
sleeve, making a deal with Russia, that could possibly include China pitching in, whereby
Russia would offer putting part of their natural gas pipeline through Greece and ensure
billions of Rubles in income, [fewer and fewer countries want to use the fiat dollar as a
trade basis anymore], is not actively being pursued. Instead, all of this back and forth
with making an acceptable deal or not is what fills the headlines for this story that
gives rise to our skepticism.
If the Tsipras/Varoufakis duo fold, it will not auger well for silver and gold, at least for a
while longer. Greece opting to “cut a deal with the devil” will prove that however fragile
the staying power of the European Union, the “dead-man-walking” EU still prevails. The
message would then still be clear: people do not matter, only the viability of a [failed]
banking system counts. and PMs remain pawns.
