Following the tragedy where thousands of people drowned in the Mediterranean trying to reach Europe by its maritime border, and especially after the catastrophe where at least 700 people died at sea only 130 kilometers away from the Libyan coast in April 2015, the European Union (EU) reactivated the border debate and some measures were taken...Read more

Greece always devoured her talented, dedicated children with the same persistence as Cronus, the ancient Greek god, who would similarly devour his own sons as soon as they were born - fearing a prophecy that predicted he was going to be killed by one of his male offspring.

Greece has always done the same without distinction as to sex and as if there was no tomorrow.

As Greece sinks deeper and deeper in the worst life-and-death crisis of her modern history, the absence of the talented, the educated, and the truly dedicated on the front line is tragically and glaringly apparent...Read more

A freshly released IMF’s World Economic Outlook brings (yet again, for the sixth year in a row, and for the third time this year only) no comforting picture to anyone within the G-7, especially in the US and EU. Neither is comforting the latest pre-Davos summit released Oxfam study. It hints that 1% is fat and furious, as some 99% of us are too many on this planet.  Will the passionately US-pushed cross-Atlantic Free Trade Area save the day? Or, would that Pact-push drag the things over the edge and mark an end of the unionistic Europe? Is the extended EU conflict with Russia actually a beginning of the Atlantic-Central Europe’s conflict over Russia, an internalization of mega geopolitical and geo-economic dilemma – who accommodates with whom, in and out of the Union? Finally, does more Ukrainian (and Eastern Europe) calamities pave the road for a new cross-continental grand accommodation, of either austerity-tired France or über-performing Germany with Russia, therefore the end of the EU? For whose sake Eastern Europe has been barred of all important debates such as that of Slavism, identity, social cohesion (eroded by the plunder called ‘privatization’), secularism and antifascism? Why do we suddenly wonder that all around Germany-led Central Europe, the neo-Nazism gains ground while only Russia insists on antifascism and (pan-)Slavism? ..Read more

Threatening howls have risen from the halls of "united" Europe at the announcement of early general elections in Greece, scheduled for January 25, 2015 – elections which, most likely, will bring to power the populist left-wing SYRIZA party...Read more

Ever since April, and a much publicized re-entry in the capital markets to secure a loan, the Greek PM Mr. Samaras has taken no breaks from advertising his government's supposed "success" in leading Greece "out of her crisis." With the exception of Mr. Samaras's narrow circle of advisers, everyone knows that this claim is bogus. In October, Mr. Samaras took another bold, but utterly inane, step in announcing that Greece was about to ditch the IMF and stand on her own two feet. The reaction from the markets was predictable: a mini panic ensued, interest rates climbed sky high, and irate EU officials made cutting remarks "off the record" about the Greek government's "unpredictability" and "lack of vision."...
