A bid to transform Greece into Iran
15 June 2012 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A wonderful piece of propaganda. I enjoyed every minute of it. Yet, I can't recommend it to anybody, unless he or she studies propaganda.

This is one major opportunity for a theocratic state to rise and rule. And they are doing anything to gain power. Because the Church is afraid they're about to become an annex to the state, something they were for centuries under the Ottoman Empire. Once the Ottoman Empire was disbanded they rose to power and grew and grew. The fall of the empire had nothing to do with them, as they used to sell children and churches in order to gain influence. But with the Muslim rule off they thought they were unstoppable. Regions forbidden to women, the need of politicians to consult bearded monks. They culminated with imposing a special field on IDs to show the religious affiliation. And that opened the door to discrimination and other evils. Yet, the EU, the same as the communists, were against the theocratic state. The perks started to disappear. And there was a fall. Not a free fall, but a certain decline of the Church influence in politics with a result in the money they pocketed every year. Now, this crisis proved to be a boon for religious nuts. Bearded guys started preaching fight, civil disobedience, anarchy. Although the Greeks associate themselves with the Occupy Wall Street Movements, this is more about the Church getting back their traditional power within the state. And the crisis itself it's both a huge chance to capitalize on the suffering, but also a major problem. It's a problem because every Greek living outside the influence of the Church has less of a chance to be indoctrinated. They start to marry outsiders and slip the tight fist of the religious crowd.

This mock documentary is just spitting out to the world issues circulated by the Church media in the last two decades. The only merit of the makers is to brush out any obvious connection with the Church. So what will it be? Greece realigning itself as a European Country or becoming the Iran of Europe?
