mr. miller

“Shunned by all like a leper and left to expire in its own dung and ashes.” Greece.
That’s how Henry Miller described it in The Colossus of Maroussi. He was talking about Crete in particular, the largest Greek island. The year was 1941.

“Every foot of the land has been fought over, conquered and reconquered, sold, bartered, pawned and auctioned off, leveled with fire and sword, sacked, plundered, administered over by tyrants and demons, converted by fanatics and zealots, betrayed, ransomed, traduced by the great powers of our day, desolated by civilized and savage hordes alike, desecrated by all and sundry, hounded to death like a wounded animal, reduced to terror and idiocy.”

Sounds like he’s explaining big banking’s effect on not just Greece, but all of us.
