A Breath of "Freedom" for Greek Citizens

By knowhow92 | Knowhow | 14 May 2021

After a year lockdown in an already economicaly devastated country, Greek citizens are finally "free" of all this madness

I can write thousands of words about how stupid our government faced this pandemic but I feel like it's the same thing in most countries around the globe so I won't bother. Instead, I'll just highlight some of the most stupid (in my opinion) COVID-19 restrictions we had to deal with the past 6 months.

  • Shops closed for over 3 months with unemployment rate at 35%
  • Send an SMS to get out of our house (SMS protects us from Covid!1!1!)
  • Police Brutality cause that's what happens when you give authority to uneducated people (Greek Police beats citizen while taking a walk)
  • Government was not hiring doctors but instead Police officers and army. People were dying in hospitals but our government decided that we need to hire more police officers to bully citizens. More than 52 million euros were spent in 6 months for police equipment and as I mentioned, people were dying in hospital corridors cause there was no available bed
  • Fine of $300 for not complying with COVID restrictions in a country with $600 minimum salary

What changes from today

  • No more SMS for getting out of the house
  • We can stay out until midnight
  • Tourism opens
  • Citizens can move across the country

No more fucking SMS to get out of our house, retail is opening again as well as museums, casino and almost every shop out there, tourism opens so this means jobs for all unemployed Greek citizens and we can finally stay out until midnight!

P.S. This might sound silly but what I need most is to go out, skate and then drink beers until midnight haha! That's exactly what I am gonna do today!

Summer is gonna be rough

Summer is gonna be lit for everyone who decided to enjoy their vacation in Greece but it's definitely not gonna be the same for us Greek citizens.

Employers are trying to take advantage of this huge 35% unemployment rate and are looking for employees who are willing to work 10 hours a day 6 days a week for like $600. Most are gonna take this deal since they are unemployed for more than 6 months and I don't blame them.

My guess is that there's gonna be a small euphoria this summer after all these months of lockdown only to be taken away from us on September-Octomber when the 2021 tourist season ends and Greek employers and citizens understand that our economy has completely collapsed.

A ton of small businesses will close cause they won't be able to pay their debts after months of hard lockdown, salaries and pensions will get "chopped" and the Greek elite along with their "shipowner" friends will keep milking this broken country.

Not playing their game

That's right

It's been a good 1 and a half year since I decided to quit my minimum salary job and start chasing my dream of making a living from doing what I love. This was by far the best choise I ever took but it was definitely a challenging and risky move.

You see, I am sharing content on Hive blockchain and other Hive dapps like LeoFinance and earn more money (in crypto) than when I was working a 9:00-5:00 job! Gotta love blockchain!

Breaking out of the Matrix they've built is hard but once you do and take a look at what's happening in this world you'll be more than glad you did.
