It sounds Greek to me

Off-topic: If you can read the following, then you understand Greek better than me (i am Greek), as i did not understand some words!!

It is Zeus' anathema on our epoch (for the dynamism of our economies) and the heresy of our economic method and policies that we should agonize the Skylla of nomismatic plethora and the Charybdis of economic anaemia. It is not my idiosyncracy to be ironic or sarcastic but my diagnosis would be that politicians are rather cryptoplethorists. Although they emphatically stigmatize nomismatic plethora, they energize it through their tactics and practices. Our policies should be based more on economic and less on political criteria. 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 more orthological, but this should not be metamorphosed into plethorophobia, which is endemic among academic economists. Nomismatic symmetry should not antagonize economic acme. A greater harmonization between the practices of the economic and nomismatic archons is basic. Parallel to this,we have to synchronize and harmonize more and more our economic and nomismatic policies panethnically. These scopes are more practicable now, when the prognostics of the political and economic barometer are halcyonic. The history of our didimus organization on this sphere has been didactic and their gnostic practices will always be a tonic to the polyonymous and idiomorphous ethnical economies. The genesis of the programmed organization will dynamize these policies. Therefore, i sympathize, although not without criticism one or two themes with the apostles and the hierarchy of our organs in their zeal to program orthodox economic and nomismatic policies, although I have some logomachy with them.I apologize for having tyranized you with my Hellenic phraseology. In my epilogue, i emphasize my eulogy to the philoxenous aytochtons of this cosmopolitan metropolis and my encomium to you, Kyrie stenographers.

That speech was made by the Greek ex prime-minister Xenophon Zolotas in 1959 at Boards of Governors, Washington D.C and granted him a place in Greek history.

Did you understand some things of that speech or nothing at all? Post your comments.

The only thing I got out of his speech is that he was a politician and politicians are always cryptic. His observations were being applied to himself and his peers in a very cryptic manner. In essence, feeding them there own bull in a language they use, but can't understand. A Very pretty speech for a guy on his way out.
But then I have always had the view that Politics is the Vaseline for Hypocrisy. Good post L4

Apart from making a statement about international economic policies, he wanted to show how the Greek language has deeply influenced English.
It was his second speech phrased that way. We can say that those 2 speeches were the first appearance of "Greeklish"!! But those speeches were actually a piece of literature art, where now Greeklish is a hideous form of communication between Greeks who are sooo bored to spend 1 second to press alt+shift prior to writing a message.

The words weren't so bad, it was the sentences ;-)

And Greeklish is even more hideous when Greek isn't your first language...
