Greece in Crisis
Greece (Hellas) is one of the most ancient and revered civilizations in the world. There is no question that Hellenism has had a definitive impact on the history and evolution of humanity, and western civilization as we know it today. However, the Hellenic Golden Age faded long ago. Greece’s recent socioeconomic crisis, between 2008 and 2018, revealed the tragic fate of a once great democratic state. The “Greek Crisis” reflects in a microcosm –and is a warning– of the Global Crisis that all of mankind is faced with when economies matter more than people.
In that decade (2008-2018), Greece had been like a country under siege confronted as it had been with economic and social disaster. Also taking into consideration the immense Refugee crisis, that has been increasingly surging for more than a decade, Greece was indeed in humanitarian crisis, and still is, taking into account the effects and strict measures due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Whatever blame may have fallen on the Greek people themselves for their role in the Crisis, it is, in fact, primarily the negligent decisions and actions by all modern governing administrations –of all political parties–, that forced this nation into a state of emergency, taking a heavy toll on the very lives and livelihood of the Greek citizens, and which, consequently, brought worldwide disrepute to this country, to its people, as well as to the Hellenic cultural heritage.
