I just saw on the news that Greece agreed to cancel their status as a developed country.
It seems hard for the ordinary Greek to understand where all their welfare went.
They react with violence which I condemn. Not matter how awful the situation is it should not be necessary to hurt other people. However I understand their frustation.
Where do all the welfare go?
Denmark is also working hard to create an application for the Group of 77. I doubt that they want us because we exposed their blackmail at the COP15. But it doesn’t hurt to apply and we would fulfill all the requirements once we cancel our early retirement called “Efterloen”.
I believe that the root of the problem is the European Union. The socalled coffeeclub for the rich and powerful as we know it in Denmark did decide that all countries should have the same level of welfare, so a lot of work were started to make all countries equal. Money as always was a problem from the start, so the solution became to align all countries in Europe so they fitted the lowest standards found in any of the membership countries.
Because Denmark in a lot of areas is the country with standards second to none, we faced hard times from the first day. I don’t think that you on the planet can find people in worse need than here and I have been abroad to both Malmoe and Hamburg.
How Greece ended up being forced to cut down is a riddle. Maybe they forgot to have a person the entire nation could unite around like we Danes have our Queen. They kicked their king out and left were the corrupt politicians. It didn’t matter that we gave up producing an improved version of their cheese.
Somehow they were not able to produce as they consumed and then the coffeeclub had to say stop.
But the problem is that once the hardliners in the coffeeclub has forced the population in Greece into starvation, the Greek society would represent the lowest level in the EU and they we would have to align our standards to theirs.
Life is not fair. Especially for us Danes who have suffered alot so far already.
