Many rushed to wash their hands after the motto – I have not done anything wrong. Slowly but surely, many are now on trial, and there will be even more in the coming yeqrs. Greater parts of the world’s population is now affected by the crises in s many different aspects and I fear it will be much worse.
The world is currently having too many hot spots and it may be hard to grasp for ordinary people. It’s actually even begun to be hard for politicians to handle in a world where each day brings on new challenges and surprises.
This moment is most focused on the Middle East and Europe, where Greece in particular has the dubious pleasure of being proclaimed as the great sins of the economy’s management of what we might call disposable money that has not existed for many years.
Corruption has historically always existed and we need only a look back to ancient times when kings, princes and businessmen made fortunes with a population that was totally unaware of the actual facts.
And it’s actually the same today, whether it happens in democratic or closed dictatorial countries. The only consolation is the tight grip around the assessment and the curiosity by the press for “good stories” that progressively expose corruption’s altar, and the many mazes, which on the road includes everything from banks, government offices to private individuals and religious organizations.
Greece has in fact been insolvent for more than 5 years, so it may surprise many when it first was discovered a year ago. Well, we know it now with the serious consequences followed by a bill, that is so big and nobody believes it will ever be possible to repay just a fraction of the amount due.
Hippies had in the happy ’60s a special perspective on life – we should all have little or no responsibility for our own dispositions – smoking marijuana and crack the capitalist system completely. Many former hippies are now in senior positions and even political top posts, so it is unlikely from this category we can count on a helping hand.
The human prospect in force for the next 10 years looks spotted out and only the man’s creative and logical thinking can turn things around if otherwise we will make efforts to do it worldwide.
