small scale riots hooded, indignants, far-leftists and far-rights, riot police, tear gas right in front of the Parliament. Efforts to push away the hooded – provocation to spoil the peaceful protest???


Exactly that´s happening now. Those "Hooded" persons got involved as always in the otherwise peaceful protest, and the result is what you see in the TV.

Anyway, Greece is not falling apart. At least not yet. If there is anything that falls is the Euro. Besides that, next will be Spain, Italy, Portugal etc. the so called "PIIGS".

Peace

I've travelled a lot and have lived a bunch of places and think the lifestyle in rural Greece is the best there is. Everything grows there, the food is fantastic and folks look out for each other. Have a problem, go down to the local taverna and tell the owner about it. He have the friend of a friend's cousin show up at your house and fix it. How much? Shrug of the shoulders and he'll give you a price - he'll also ask you what you can do and if you can fix cars, he'll trade the work he did for a brake job, etc.

Now you can't do that if you're not Greek and speak Greek. You'll get ripped off, big time, but if you're a part of the community, life is good.

Sounds great. It makes sense now, you already do not live with money? There is no economy, only toerism.

Absolutely, the rural side of greece is simply beyond description. Funny but mind blowing thing happened to me several years ago while visiting an uncle. well we all sat down for lunch time, by all i mean (18 members), but some reason my untee forgot to tell my uncle that they needed cucumbers for the salad ( greek salad) so what blew me away was that my grandma ( god bless her soul) gave a shout out to her neighbor ( Nitsa was her name) if she could have come cucumbers, so while they begun tweeting one another..lol it ended up that the neighbors family was also invited to have lunch (6members) and they also brought food over along with the cucumbers, so in short it was like a festival happening right before my eyes, something that simply cannot happen when one lives in a city behind dead bolts, security cameras, etc etc.

There will always be currency. In much of the world today business is not conducted in domestic currencys, but rather the currency of another country, which used to be primarily the US dollar, but that is another story. Tulips used to be used as currency, same with salt. Metals, goods and services will always be useful as currency. If my family in Crete needed cash, we would send US dollars in sufficient quanity to preserve their livestyle, which would not be a lot, believe me, especially if we were all kicking in.

Its not like were the currency suddenly become worthless everyone would sit around with nothing to eat and stare at each other with blank looks on their face. Commerce would continue, albiet with different vehicle as the means of exchange.

This is a direct result of running massive, consistant deficits, rampant socialism and a entitlement mindset.

The government is pressured by thugs like these not to make cuts to social programs that allows people to sit around on social assistance as a previous poster said playing backgammon in cafes. This is a big problem in other countries that are now failing, such as Ireland. There, until recently it made more economical sense to sit on welfare taking government handouts than to actually get a minimum wage job.

The government in Greece does not like to have to make these cuts. They are politically unpopular, but necissary if they are ever to stand on their own feet again. These protesters are spoiled children, nothing more.

To be honest at this very point in time, being at the athens city square what you might have viewed through the various links, i really dont have the terms or if something is allowed or not on my mind. Having to worry about the cops here and tear gas while typing away in a forum located across the world is kinda not what i was expecting to do when i woke up this morning. But sure, i get your point its just that its kinda going crazy over this side of the world. Oh yes...looks like greece is heading for elections since the next austerity measures are to be voted and the from what ppl tell me here is that many politicians will be not voting for the new measures to pass and requesting the minister of finance to step down and be replaced, btw, that's the same minister who was invited to the Bilderberg family bbq the other day in Switzerland.

Thats right, I am her. I knew you were like that... Ive bin stalking you along time. Now I now you true colours... COME HOME RIGHT NOW




That quick swim could give you a great fresh new idea of your business. (As long as your eyes are not occupied)

Well if the SHTF really arrives, It ain't such a bad idea to go to Greece.

Hope you don't loose another 100k

Untrue. Money used as a currency (preferably backed by a real commodity such as gold), allows MUCH greater efficiency in the marketplace.

Imagine if a business had to pay its employees in food, clothing, or other commodities (beaver pelts). Where would they store these all? Perhaps it would be easier to give out food stamps to redeem at a central location, but then in a sense would those stamps not be "money"?

It creates a logistical nightmare in todays day and age. If you want to go back to the days of trading, fine. Just dont expect to live any kind of life comparable to what we currently have. Many people would say they want that, but when they have to give up their Starbucks, BMWs, and big screen TVs, they would think twice.

I am pretty sure this by allowed in close future worldwide, no more democracy ..

Governments don't have other way anymore, they fck all, economy is brooking apart everywhere

Every secend have more people what don't have the basic water end food on other side very small % millionaire becomes billionaires because they don't pay enough workers ..

They want to establish police countries worldwide end they work together on that all governments, 85 % min of country's ..

We need to by eyes open for that in next years end try to by very smart if we don't want to by there sheep's ..

More video of Greek riots: Fierce street battles rage in Athens

What is life about?

Food and energy supply is primary, that is what we should keep running.

The rest can do what their highest excitement is. Just share, live and create in peace

You need nothing to live happy.

If you want to use currency, you know you create inequality. Billionaires and homeless people.
Life is only about experience. Today in this money based world, everybody runs in the circle of paying bills after bills. That is occupation of our mind
