THE HELLENIC LANGUAGE LIVES FOR EVER
THE GRANDEUR OF THE HELLENIC LANGUAGE
|The speach of Mr. Zolotas at meeting of the members of the International Monetary Union in 1957:|
|"I always wished to address this Assembly in Greek, but realized that
it would have been indeed "Greek" to all present in this room. I found
out, however, that I could make my address in Greek which would still be
English to everybody. With your permission, Mr. Chairman, l shall do it
now, using with the exception of articles and prepositions, only Greek
I eulogize the archons of the Panethnic Numismatic Thesaurus and the Ecumenical Trapeza for the orthodoxy of their axioms, methods and policies, although there is an episode of cacophony of the Trapeza with Hellas.
With enthusiasm we dialogue and synagonize at the synods of our didymous organizations in which; polymorphous economic ideas and dogmas are analyzed and synthesized. Our critical problems such as-the numismatic plethora generate some agony and melancholy. This phenomenon is characteristic of our epoch. But, to my thesis, we have the dynamism to program therapeutic practices as a prophylaxis from chaos and catastrophe.
In parallel, a Panethnic un-hypocritical economic synergy and harmonization in a democratic climate is basic.
I apologize for my eccentric monologue. I emphasize my euharistia to
you, Kyrie to the eugenic arid generous American Ethnos and to the organizes
and protagonists of his Amphictony and the gastronomic symposia".
|Two years later in 1959 Mr. Zolotas gave another Hellenic American speech, saying that he asked them to listen intently even with the possible danger of tiring his listeners. Here is the speech:|
|"It is Zeus' anathema on our epoch for the dynamism of our economies
and the heresy of our economic methods and policies that we should agonize
between the Scylla of numismatic plethora and the Charybdes of economic
"It is not my idiosyncrasy to be ironic or sarcastic but my diagnosis would be that politicians are rather crypto-plethorists.
''Our policies should be based more on economic and less on political criteria.
"Although they emphatically stigmatize numismatic plethora, they energize it through their tactics and practices.
"Our gnomon has to be a metron between economic strategic and philanthropic scopes. Political magic has always been anti-economic.
"In an epoch characterized by monopolies, oligopolies monopolistic antagonism and polymorphous inelasticities, our policies have to be metamorphosed into plethorophobia. which is endemic among academic economists.
"Numismatic symmetry should to antagonize economic acme.
"A greater harmonization between the practices of the economic and numismatic archons is basic.
"Parallel to this, we have to synchronize and harmonize more our economic and numismatic policies pan-ethnically.
"These scopes are more practicable now, when the prognostics of the political and economic barometer are halcyonic.
"The history of our didimous organizations in this sphere has been didactic and their gnostic practices will always be a tonic to the polyonymous and idiornorphous ethnical economies. The genesis of the programmed organization will dynamize these policies. Therefore, I sympathize, although not without criticism on one or two themes, with the apostles and the hierarchy of our organizations in their zeal to program orthodox economic and numismatic policies.
"I apologize for having tyrannized you with my Hellenic phraseology.
"In my epilogue, I emphasize my eulogy to the philoxenous autochthons
of this cosmopolitan metropolis and my encomium to you, Kyrie and the stenographers."
