“Hope for Sale”, bargain prices


The increase in refugee and immigrants numbers, happens mainly because the Turkish traffickers can no longer sell the passage to the Greek islands in “cruise prices”. Border closures and the negative attitude of many European countries to accept refugees forced and lowered the values by ​​1/3. They sell a sharp cutting hope, but the desperate are many.

Hurry before NATO intervenes, they tell the uprooted, before closing the borders, before the prices spike again. Everything is shamelessly done in broad daylight. Policemen can conjugate the word bribe really well, in all its forms.

The traffickers are indifferent and the Sultan finds yet another lever to pressure Greece and any of the remaining Europe. Caravans inundate the host country.

People reach their limits, crossing walking through a country with destination their hope. And us Greeks are already testing our strengths, because we carry the weight. Not because our backs can hold it, but our soul. In the slave bazaar, Turks sell  hope and Europeans are selling souls.

PS .: What is hope? “The dream of a person who is awake.” Aristotle.
