Regarding Chris Graeme’s articles on the Masons (Algarve Resident January 13 issue) and ‘Disconcordia’ (January 20 issue).
The Masons originally were the architects of the Pyramids. They had no computers or even writing paper to draw their designs and were mathematical geniuses in calculating the construction of their complex buildings in line with the Universe to afford an afterlife to the Pharoahs.
Their eventual spiritual beliefs of one god were adopted by Jesus and Mary Magdalene and carried on by the Templar Knights who at one time ruled Portugal.
After the demise of the Templars in the 15th Century, the Masons were re-incarnated in name from the Templar ashes with less militant ideals, closely entwined with the resurrected Rosicrucians and Hospitallier knights (followers of Mary Magdalene), and the more right wing of the Renaissance born Illuminati (now associated with the Bilderberg Society) and in opposition at all times to Catholic beliefs.
There is a theory that a Masonic elite has sought to rule the world at all times in various guises from Moses on down, and although the local Rotary Club may be unwittingly unaware it is nevertheless an arm of it, whose members practise much the same secret and symbolic rites as those of their Egyptian forefathers.
King Arthur and his Camelot Knights and his Tudor descendant Elizabeth 1st were Masons as were virtually all the founding fathers of the USA, and the entire layout of Washington DC itself and all its buildings are designed on the principles of the original Egyptian Masons and their architectural/spiritual beliefs of a fourth dimensional afterlife.
Regarding ‘Disconcordia and Portugal’. What Europe is witnessing is the testing of the faulty design of putting the cart before the horse (i.e. the Euro before a common fiscal policy). The 50% rise in the Euro/Dollar exchange rate since the Euro’s inception has suited Germany and wrecked the lower tech vacation dependent Latin countries of Europe which travellers have deserted to go where prices are 50% lower.
Something has to give, and the current horse trading between Germany and the Latin countries is to decide who gives what.
Mrs Merkel’s attempts to force austerity on Portugal and others simply decreases their ability to repay the unpayable, and so either the debtors must renege on their irresponsible borrowings and leave the Euro and establish new currency rates far lower to make them competitive, or Germany must forgive their irresponsible loans and realise that the EU means sharing wealth and not having the lion’ share of it.
Another option is for Germany to leave the Euro which would wreck the German economy in the same way as if the Latin countries left it, as a high new DM rate would spoil German exports and German banks would not get repaid.
The hope is that Europe will muddle through. Loans need to be extended or forgiven in part and inflation will eventually solve the problem by effectively forgiving bank loans to the public at the expense of savings.
The fact that the ECB is now buying the debts of banks which Mrs Merkel said she would not allow only weeks ago, is a sign that reality has dawned and the only medicine is that which the US and UK are pursuing of Keynesian economics against those German/Austrian austerity policies which are recipes for disaster.
It is vital that Portugal should not kowtow to Germany’s demands and that with Italy and Spain it should take a tough stand to bring about a fairer Europe for all and not one where generations of Latin countries work to benefit Germany.
If the Euro fails, the EU will follow it and will be Germany’s doing, and Germany should know better not to go there again for the third time in 100 years.
