THE AUCTION OF A BIRTHRIGHT
…And the Final bid is 30 pieces of “Euros”… “Agreed”, shouted the Judas. The gavel came crashing down-- Greece, sold for 30 pieces of “Euros” to the European Union…
When a free nation is birthed into the world, she is endowed with a special mark signifying her arrival - a birthright. This invaluable birth right is known as her national sovereignty, cloaking and shielding her from the nakedness of her former shame of servitude and subjugation. It is the very essence of her freedom; enabling her to stand with dignity and pride before the entire world. She belongs to no one but God and her People.
It is this very sovereignty, which bestows upon a nation the right of self determination. And in so doing, empowers her with the credibility to move about the world stage as a recognized, respected and, above all, equal member of the international community. Remove this lynchpin, toss it, as a bargaining chip, into the hands of another State, and in so doing, all the blood bought rights and privileges of nationhood will vanish. Thus, the sovereign nation, once again, falls back into the pit of servitude, subjugation and shame. The hope-driven struggle toward the light of self determination is doused.
Thursday, July 21, 2011 the Leadership of Greece committed this very crime against their Country. Bargaining away her birthright and, in turn, selling her People for a bag, tied closed with European purse strings, containing a mere 30 pieces of “Euros”.
Such an ancient, noble Land; such a strong, honorable People; if only they had had noble and honorable Leaders.
