What Is Europe Without Greece?

One thing is clear, that Alexis Tspiras must stand firm in sweeping waters and against the rising tide. Historians will often say that European man is Greek in provenance. As citizens of Europe we know that Syriza is making decisions in constrained space and time, and that they should be proud -- whatever the outcome -- that they have sought to represent a demographic that extends beyond Greece and touches the heart of Europe.

A Modern Greek Tragedy

The current Greek government won the elections under the slogan "Hope is Coming". Is "hope" seeing our grandparents crying and dying in front of ATM machines? Is "hope" people literally threatening to kill their brothers over political disagreements? Is "hope" a government that cannot take responsibility for their mistakes?

When I was last in Athens two years ago Golden Dawn was a violent streetlevel militia, whose members were regularly beating up migrants and leftists in the streets of central Athens. At that time Golden Dawn had no MPs and little national political clout. Since then it has become, according to most polls, the third largest party in the country, with eighteen seats in parliament.

Europe may have averted imminent disaster last month with its €130 billion bailout of Greece. But in this latest stopgap, European officials are repeating many of the mistakes their forebears made more than a century ago in their handling of debt crises in southern neighbours.

The Confusing Fires of The Athenian Landscape

At some point, the blame and part of the responsibility for what happens within their own country has to fall on the Greek public. Ninjas did not destroy the Attikon. Ninjas did not set fire to nearly 50 buildings around Athens. Ninjas were not the ones asking for money so as not to burn down the Asty cinema house, just a short walk away from the Attikon. These were citizens of Greece. Whether provoked, coerced, brainwashed or otherwise, these were citizens of Greece.

These are sad times for Europe. Three countries, Greece, Portugal and Ireland, are now dependent on external financing in order to repay their debt liabilities while Spain and Italy are widely muted to follow suit. Together they constitute more than 25% of the EU's GDP. The stakes are high.
