And to think that it was our country that spawned democracy. In the year 2015 Democracy is elusive- the banks and the lobbyists have free reign to tweak the financial conditions of each country they have chosen to victimise and thus, becoming masters of their fate.
Of course, they have mighty tools at their disposal- the media.Their chosen puppets, the politicians who are going to implement their plans for them.The more fear can be spread,the tamer the masses will be, and consequently more receptive to their will.
I like to believe I am a quite intelligent and logical human being.I strive to see everyone's point of view before judging-if do so at all.But the things I have witnessed since last Friday night are just grotesque.A war is being waged and we have been chosen to determine its outcome.The two rivals are in fierce battle.We must carry the responsibility for whatever will follow.At what cost though? What will the aftermath be?What price will we be called upon to pay?If we re to be brutally honest, whatever the outcome, we will be the sole recipients of the consequences, as neither a yes or a no is devoid of negative aspects.It makes me angry when I realise that.Very angry.
I have no idea as yet what my choice will be.But I do know this one thing.I will never hold it against any of my fellow Greeks if they voted differently.I have no such right.In fact, I consider it a sacred duty to defend their right ot a different perspective in the most vehement of ways.Agreed, we are going through troubled times.It is about time though, that we stop turning against each other every time there is a decision to be made.It is imperative that for once in our very long history we make a difference on this account at least.We should stay united.We should disregard the media completely and forbid them unrestricted access to our brains, to our free will.It's about time we stopped bragging about our noble ancestry and start learning from our ancestors, their wisdom and even their mistakes.Maybe by making this small but so significant change will we have gained a precious,rare national trait-or virtue, if you will.Our solidarity.Our free will and independence.Those are the weapons that will make us invincible to any other threat that will come our way.Because then we'll know we have nothing to fear as long as there is unity and understanding of who we are,not who they tell us we should be.It's about time we woke up and see things as they are.It's time.
