ΟΜΙΛΙΕΣ Ξ. ΖΟΛΩΤΑ

1η & 2η ΟΜΙΛΙΑ ΖΟΛΩΤΑ ΜΕ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΗΣ ΠΡΟΕΛΕΥΣΗΣ ΛΕΞΕΙΣ ΣΤΗΝ ΑΓΓΛΙΚΗ ΓΛΩΣΣΑ

ΣΤΗ ΣΥΝΕΔΡΙΑΣΗ, που γινόταν η επισκόπηση και αναλύονταν τα συμπεράσματα από τις εργασίες του ΔΝΤ και της Διεθνούς Τράπεζας για το 1957, ως αντιπρόσωπος της Ελλάδος  ο Ξενοφών Ζολώτας προκάλεσε την έκπληξη από τον απροσδόκητο λόγο του στις 26 Σεπτεμβρίου 1957. Μίλησε ελληνικά και τον κατάλαβαν όλοι γιατί χρησιμοποίησε ατόφια την αγγλική γλώσσα! Την επομένη το λόγο του είχαν πρωτοσέλιδο  οι «New York Times» και οι «Washington Post». 

 

Το πρώτο κείμενο του Ξ. Ζολώτα, του 1957 έχει ως εξής:


«Kyrie,


I eulogize the archons of the Panethnic Numismatic Thesaurus and the Oecumenical 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 prophylacis from chaos and catastrophe.
In parallel a panethnic unhypocritical economic synergy and harmonization in a democratic climate is basic. I apologize for my eccentric monologue. I emphasize my eucharistia to your Kyrie to the eugenic and generous American Ethnos and to the organizers and protagonists of this Ampitctyony and gastronomic symposia».

 

Δύο χρόνια αργότερα, το 1959, ο Ξ.Ζολώτας έδωσε μία άλλη ελληνοαγγλική ομιλία, ζητώντας να τον ακούσουν με προσοχή, ακόμα κι αν υπήρχε ο κίνδυνος να κουράσει τους ακροατές του:

 

Kyrie, 

 

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,
