The Comrades of Golden Dawn and the Homeland of our dreams-Article of N.G. Michaloliakos
“We shall come a Night
When the stars shall me vanished
And you will ignore
Whether you are dead or alive
But we shall come
Bringing thousand stars with us
And Bloody Sun
The Comrades of Golden Dawn, according to the media of this country, that constitutes the last soviet of Europe with the “successors” of Marx and Trotsky, represent the ultimate evil of the state. Yet, it is about a rotten and corrupted state, with apathetic people, who do not react to their dreary fate.
Beyond the “Greece” of Black Friday, beyond the visit of sultan Erdogan and beyond those who pretend to be “patriots”, we search out for the real GREECE, the Homeland of our dreams! Yet, this quest must take place not only at the present time, but also throughout history.
So, in order to retrieve the Homeland of our dreams, let us think of an epigram of the Palatine Anthology. The Palatine Anthology is a collection of Greek (ancient and Roman) epigrams of a period lasting 1300 years, from 7th century B.C. until 600A.C. The Palatine Anthology was found at a manuscript of 1606 A.C. and is estimated to have been written during the 10th century.
So, among these epigrams, there is the epigram of a Greek philosopher, Palladas, who was born at Chalcis and lived in Alexandria. So, regarding the end of Hellenism and its rebirth through the rise of the Byzantine Empire, Palladas wrote the following:
“Greek men,are we already dead and we live only in our imagination, or do we live and reality is dead?" –PALLADAS
So, Palladas wonders if we are dead and we live within a dream, or we are still alive yet reality is dead. Well, the dilemma of Palladas is still on point, in our rotten state, since we cannot tell if we live through our imagination, within a dream.
Maybe, we do live within a dream…However, what for others is a dream, for us is the cold reality that we have already experienced in this struggle, in the cells of the prison. Well, we made our dream come true, raising our Flags up in the air, us, the “cursed” of this cruel society. However, the Homeland of our dreams constitutes the Future of this country. Only then true Greece will emerge and will not live any longer in a miserable fantasy.
