Spinoza wrote that joy is the passage from a minimum to a greater perfection. It may be that, this apothegm of his was unknown to those who had counted on the overwhelmedness of the Greek nation regarding national issues. They hadn’t appreciated how much joy a Just battle gives out, they hadn’t realized how many Greeks were joyful to find themselves at the historic Rally in Thessaloniki, as well as some others who weren’t there, but now want to be with us at the Athens Rally. They imagined that cold, rain, and problems could be obstacles. They’ve forgotten however that it’s obstacles that we overcome. They’ve forgotten the joy caused by exceedance. They’ve forgotten how much value a strategic aim entails. Now of course they can see it, and they are trying to get hold of some of the aura of the Greek nation. and it’s just fine that they do so. They however speak differently now, because the wind doesn’t blow the same way any longer. What’s important is that joy touches upon many a people, and they in turn want to share it with others. And so they became barkers for the next Rally. So if they tell us that it would be dangerous, just as they said about the previous one, we will answer that, that’s even better so that our bright presence is even more valuable. At the end of the day, this is the aim of Hellenism, to overcome everything in order to point out the example to everyone else.
