This does not even explore the highly probable hypothesis that the most recent Greek bailout is nothing more than a stopgap measure to forestall the same fate in Ireland, Portugal, and Spain. Should the new measure fail, and there is every reason to believe it shall, these problems will multiply exponentially.
What will result from these trends? With so many nations in chaos, there is cause for concern.
Europe nears its next crossroad.
The next era is barreling toward Europeans, and it would seem to be carrying a shotgun. Look for it to roll across the land from the Near East. Memories are long in that part of the continent, and now that they are unblocked, they may lead the way.
At a minimum, this summer may be the last best chance to enjoy some of our culture’s great treasures in safety and ease. Changes will come”maybe not immediately, but soon.
One can be forgiven for missing the fact that earthquakes actually occurred in Europe last week. The temblors were in southern Spain, with readings of 4.4 and 5.2, respectively; they killed eight and were the worst in 50 years.
It bears reminding that the original seer did not produce the vision; the man did not make the quake. If anything, it was his intention to inform others so they might protect themselves.
True, the foretold calamity did not happen in Rome but 750 miles away”less than the width of Texas. But it occurred on the exact date in a startlingly close geographic proximity and was predicted by a man who had been dead for over 30 years. Any contemporary individual possessing similar powers of prognostication would be well advised to regularly play the lottery.
Yes, it seems those dear Italians of the early part of last century were on to something after all, and many a now-deceased man may have predicted Europe’s ultimate future.
