I think that right/left differences have to be put aside for something this critical. I see SYRIZA/ANEL as Greece's most crucial chance to rethink the current system both nationally and internationally. Again, no words can explain the number of policies that need modernisation, and much of that is m...

Greece already had a Fascist regime twice; we don't need a third try. Syriza is not fascist and most Greek people don't support Golden Dawn. Austerity is what has fueled increased support for the fascist parties and so as long as Syriza fulfills their campaign promises you should see a decline in s...

I simply cannot say that change will happen overnight, but ND made many silly ideas, like closing ERT. If they were to solve the problem they should have been serious about sorting out corruption and being less intolerant towards minorities. There is no doubt that a present, Greece is in a serious ...

Austerity has failed. Greece needs to leave the Euro. It's the only option at this point. What effect do you presume that will have on the Greek economy. Austerity has failed, yes. But, in Greece's case, I feel that it was either austerity or accept default. And, if Greece leaves the euro, they're ...

What the? I think the best option is to look into how Labour brought in the welfare state, right in the middle of our austerity after WWII.

I can't see how we have to hate certain cultures because of historical events: indeed such events have to be held to account, but in a constructive way instead of going by the flawed "all X are Y" assumption.
