When we refer to the concept of thievery and of thieves, we get the mental image of a burglar, a mugger and in general of simple criminal law-breakers alone.

If a burglar hits a house or a mugger robs people, the result is disastrous for them, not only from a financial aspect but also from a psychological one, with a strong impact which could be chronic if the victims do not seek adequate help in time. Those law-breakers, therefore, are rightfully persecuted and punished by the law on the occasion that there are sufficient conditions for their arrest. Unfortunately, far too many times they remain at large and unpunished, either because of inability of the police to locate them or because of other factors which make the police appear weak or inept when in reality it isn’t.

If now we use the logic of the babushka to explore the existence of the model of thievery, thieves and the police in relation to those on a wider level than the one of the individual, what shall we find?

We will find the exact same situation which holds for the thieves and burglars on the individual level on all the ranks and levels of social life and scale.

What do we mean by this?

The concept of thieving in all cases involves the violent removal or embezzlement of fortune, material or mental, which evidently belongs to another group or person than the one removing it. This occurs daily nearly everywhere:

1. In the public sector services:

The first thing which is stolen in any public sector service is the psychological calm of the civilian. This occurs because instead of respect towards the civilian and a conscious effort to satisfy him/her with adequate service, exactly like all employees do for their employer, the roles are reversed. The civilian acts as a bondservant and is afraid that he/she may make the public servant angry.

This happens because there is no policing on this particular area where thieving is taking place. On the contrary, this type of thieving is promoted, because there is no substantial capacity given to the civilian, that he/she is aware of and understands, so there will exist a possibility for the public servant committing the act of theft of psychological calm and sense of dignity to be fired or pay damages, as is the case often in the private sector businesses.

The second thing that is stolen from the civilian in a public sector service is the capacity to check and monitor public servants on how well or how correctly they perform their duties. The civilian must battle against the public servants he/she funds through taxes to have them perform administrative duties in order to receive information which he has an obligation and a right to know so that neither he/she nor the public servants will be against the law.

The third thing which is stolen from the citizen is property in various ways, from the enforcement of fines derived from the situation described above or by unlawful or improper actions and decisions, to the lack of reimbursement or the withholding of money in the case of an error on the part of the service and against the citizen.

The fourth thing which is stolen from the citizen is precious time which is squandered in delays, queues and collection of paperwork which is often pointless, and which time would normally be invested in the earning of money or rest or mental cultivation. This constitutes loss of income in all citizens for which they are never reimbursed.

2. in the mass media :

We are daily bombarded by messages through shows and advertisements which steal and embezzle self-confidence and worth, personal and ethnic pride, a sense of understanding and control as well as the sensation that we do have the capacity to control the environment in which we live.

Self-confidence and worth is stolen when through examples and arbitrary definitions of what is or can be liked, accepted, admired, successfully or normal. The advertisements project social and personal models which are either counterfactual/unreal or are in actuality completely harmful. They present these models as wanted, desired or demanded by peers so that the individual can exist substantially. Since these models cannot be achieved in the way that is presented or at all, the person loses his/her self-confidence and worth as being de facto a failure and a reject, regardless whether this is not actually true.

The shows steal self-worth not only of individuals but of entire social groups (such as women, parents, educators, athletes, police officers, doctors, children and others) as well as nations’ through stories or presentations and talks during which the social group under attack is depicted gratuitously and improperly as the basest in relation to an abstract counterpart, as uncultivated, uneducated, incorrigible, ridiculous, backward, fanatic and/or unethical. For example, Greek children are repeatedly presented as the most obese without proof that the research claiming this is methodologically and scientifically correct, if of course, it exists. This causes a sense of shame in the adults ethnically (since they are the children of Greece) and as parents (since their children have become ugly and unacceptable under their supervision: in this research obesity is presented as social stigma regardless the exhortations of ‘political correctness’ and ‘differentiation of individuals’ according to which it should not be presented as such). Also, obesity as a concept remains undefined just like the manner of the research of judging who is deemed obese and how it scientifically justifies this great generalization on an entire people.

In the same way, the sense of pride and power is stolen since it is taught on the level of brain wash by the mass media that the citizen is of low intelligence, incapable of critical thought and reasoning, nationalist, cruel, uncouth and self-serving and above all, weak and powerless.

3. on a governmental level:

From the Greeks but also any other citizen worldwide is stolen national property, individual property, cultural properly as well as all types of mental property and of course the energy demanded to acquire and maintain these properties and other achievements which are undermined and unsung.

Financial power has been robbed systematically since 1983 with the continuous depreciations and slides of the currency through which the buying capacity of the citizen has been arbitrarily lessened, fact which constitutes theft and embezzlement of the toil and power which fairly every person has earned. This phenomenon becomes more and more acute and the theft more and more gross with fabricated stock exchange crises, oil alerts and war threats on an international or local level. A bulge has occurred from the time of the installation of the euro through which was stolen more than 50% of the financial and buying power of the citizens (one of the sliest embezzlements with the contribution of the state, experts and the mass media through the stifling propaganda commanding civilians to accept the euro with the promise of future well-being, enrichment and safety through and by it). It continues with inflation and raising of the prices on a level not just of thieving but of piracy.

National property in the form of public enterprises, social security but also land and subsoil is embezzled and stolen silently and behind the scenes through the entering of public enterprises in the stock exchange or their denationalization, the merging of social security categories resulting in the stealing of their funds as well as the selling out of land and subsoil to business people (in the form of ports, roads, mines, natural reserves, airports, etc).

Cultural and historical property is lost with the arbitrary twisting of history against historical and anthropological proof as well as in the official or unofficial back-stepping or accepting claims of other ethnic groups which are unfounded, as well as in the enforcement of culture which has no ethnic identity beyond the tag ‘globalization’. This is highly harmful for all peoples without exception because it steals safety valves for the survival and development of every people. These had developed and evolved on the basis of the socio-political and geological conditions of the area of each nation, not only for survival and development but also for ensuring of cohesion in a frame of logic and sense of control in which the citizen could evolve and develop as mentioned (and as is historically proven by all the liberal movements which independently arose in all nations repeatedly over time), fact which is now rendered impossible since every citizen feels alien and alienated in his/her own land.

If we go to an even greater babushka we will see that exactly the same holds for the international level as far as theft and embezzlement taking place against the people and individuals is concerned.

Isn’t there any policing? At all?

Theoretically, policing exists but of course is not applied in its proper form (that is to prevent or persecute the thieves in order to protect the rightful owners) but in reverse, just as we described is the case of the public servant and the citizen: the peoples and the citizens are threatened and misinformed about the capacities of monitoring which they possess and the thieves are protected. But this can’t continue and the criminal activity is visibly curbed when the rightful owner (the citizen or the people) decide not to be threatened and to use the power they possess at any moment, which slyly and on purpose is wrongfully channeled into demonstrations or violent behavior.

But how can I have any impact if I don’t demonstrate or I don’t become armed and violent?

That is exactly what we will explore and answer in the next article.
