Things are ok, thank you Jonathan. Strange but fine. People are just tired and sad...too much uncertainty. Let me know when you're around. :)

Why can’t the Greeks just stick to the austerity plan and reduce their debt like the other countries? This and other often-asked questions are finally given some answers.

"Greek people are lazy"!

Greek people work the longest hours in Europe.

"Greek people retire early!"

Greek people go into retirement later than the average German or Spanish.

"Greek people receive huge pensions!"

Nearly 45% of Greece’s 2.5 million retirees live below the poverty line defined by the EU.

"Greece got hundreds of billions of euros and squandered them all."

Greece received only a fraction of the bailout funds, the rest went into European institutions like German and French Banks.

"Bailing out Greece was a mistake!"

Greece was never "bailed out", the only thing that was "bailed out" was the European financial system.

"Everything today is the fault of Syriza and Tsipras!"

Everything today is the fault of the so called "Troika" (European Commission, European Central Bank, and International Monetary Fund) which took a weak Greek economy in crisis and through five years of relentless austerity, have literally destroyed it and made economical recovery all but impossible.

These are the facts about the Greek crisis, which can be easily found out if people really wanted to educate themselves about it.

But who wants to do that when you can just jump on the ignorant, uninformed, anti Greek propaganda bandwagon and use the Greek people as a scapegoat to vent out all your frustration, prejudice and ignorant "opinions" about what you "think" is wrong, as I see so many people do these days.

It is important to teach schoolchildren that violence is a fruitless approach to solving problems. The use of violence and force inevitably entails unanticipated consequences and rarely any solution. It would be much better if children grew up accustomed to the idea that the proper way to resolve problems is through dialogue, through reaching a mutually agreeable solution.
