The Fund and the European Union had decided that Iceland's three hundred twenty thousand inhabitants should be liable for the bankruptcy of its bankers, for which each and every Icelander owed a foreign debt of twelve thousand euros.
Yes, socialism in reverse, which fortunately for us all was rejected by the Icelanders who said: "The debt is not our debt. Why should we pay it? Go f&*k yourself!" I added the "go f&*k yourself, but the sentiment was there.
In this world controlled by greed and Satan's Demiurge Knights, this small island lost in the waters of the North Atlantic stood up to greed and tyranny. Which is made more interesting by the fact that in ancient times on this day, April 9th, Icelanders celebrated the Goddess A-Ma (Matzu). Yes, the guardian of the sea and protector of all fishermen and sailors, and they did this with offerings of fresh seafood and flowers as an offering on their altars, for you see, everyone had an altar in their homes before the churches required you to use their altars. So if you have an altar today, offer something to A-Ma, and maybe, just maybe, you'll catch the Icelander courage to tell the money changer: go f&*k yourself.

"He eats simple fare, but he is a great man." This is a good proverb that we all should follow.
When you could have walked for a while but instead drove, your legs began to weaken. In the same way, when we become used to luxuries and the trappings of wealth, we begin to forget simple living and lose our inner joy and peace and freedom.
