Hi everyone, okay this has nothing to do with electronics, from last week I been speaking to a lot of people in real life and online and yes Ive seen the riots in Greece but why are people angry with this particular country, its not only this country, the peope ive spoken to were general people i.e. taxi drivers, hair dressers, shop keepers, traders in my country the UK and all off them are very angry with the southern european countries such as Italy, Spain, Greece. I got mixed answers from them when I asked, so if people can explain in leymans terms why people are mad at these countries id appreciate it? Im not a politics person so no big words. Sure I know what Hung parliament means could I ever get away from that phrase  ::)

Simon:
I think the countries you mention had to buy into the euro. I know Italy certainly paid the EU to enter the euro because it's economy did not meet the euro requirements, personally I saw this as a contradiction but then maybe we are seeing the result of that very contradiction. It might mean help for those countries for fear of crashing this precious currency for all but really if they had to pay to be in it I can't see the point, economically or politically.

I think the biggest disaster is that the people of the country who have no fault will have to pay the bill and this is what makes them very angry

Because people are generally sheep, know very little about the running of the world, believe the media, and don't want to think too much. You just blame what seems obvious, and most people will be ok with it.

Its always fascinated me how easily entire populations are lead around by the nose by advertising and commerce, fish in a barrell.

very true and one of the reasons I don't have a television, because i don't particularly have time for the unrealistic view it gives of the world and the catching adds and headlines that are in fact very shallow.

Kiriakos-GR:
Every country has two or more political groups .

Those groups trying to prove that they have deferent philosophy - views - believes

Every group uses the media to create impressions , gain the public interest, and with it voters.

The long story sort ,  we should stop the bankers from playing "the masters of the universe" .
The weakness of our politicians "world wide" are that they get payed by the bankers .
And they do not care for the interest of their own country men .
They politicians had build special laws , and they can stay protected by them,
even if they do the biggest crimes.

My only advice to the young people are , to go forward and involve them selfs with politics,
they should learn few basics, about the state it self , how it operates.
Only then,  they will be able to judge what is right and what is not , and by their force ( Vote ),
to fight and change any injustice of the system.

Staying home .. watching TV ... trusting unworthy people ... soon enough your country will be called as Greece too.
