A large proportion of the world population has for many years worked with what we call “culture across frontiers” – An ambitious project, but possible to realize at the long-term, if a country otherwise has its own culture that accepts and respects other cultures.
The world is not structured in a way where culture is absolute. In this particular time many will probably be aware that any society has based their opportunities opened up by several factors. Economic, political opinions, religious, historical origin and ethnicity are important elements of the world’s population, and the gradually administrative, technical and complex schemes do not fit into people’s brains at once without first exploring the various areas in details.
Presidents and top managers cannot grasp everything at once and are depending of good advisers. This fact alone will provide a degree of uncertainty in the decision-making processes adopted and we have seen many errors – but only after the adoption of any laws or projects.
Economy is actually dry substance, but the effect of economic difficulties suddenly becomes “alive” when it reduces the possibility of people’s opportunities for a good and healthy life. Normally, it has been possible to “borrow” funds in a wide-bankroll which apparently now reached the bottom of the money-chest – or is it fact or fake…?
In my opinion it is scam although I am aware that much has been air and valueless paper money up-inflated by unscrupulous investment bankers and swindlers who before the year 2008 could enrich themselves at others’ expense.
The European Euro has for many years been under pressure from the United States in
particular and the U.S. has never been interested in any other strong currency worth more than the country’s own – the dollar. Should the euro collapse, there are no winners – only losers including the United States, the euro through the years have been stable and attractive to the world’s investors.
The Greek and perhaps all of Europe’s financial tragedy we all know, but all do not know the different cultures and way of life. The entire Mediterranean is very different structured in spirituality, lifestyles and attitudes compared to the northern part of Europe and of course many of the overseas countries. The economy is obviously an important part of everyday life, but has not always been prioritized highest on a scale from one to ten, and the EU’s many and strict laws are not even reached all corners of the countries in crisis yet.
Knowledge is an important prerequisite for the understanding of just a small part of the EU concept, and there are probably not many who know – there are simply too few people bothering about economic and administrative laws, but only if the consequence of either poor management or perhaps outright corruption comes to light we react upon the substance and everything that affects us even in the form of a lower standard of living.
If the day comes where the bulk of humanity is aware of what the word awareness actually contains, it may be possible to extend our life from a common platform where all other values can complement the basic elements with something positive. Until this happens, we remain on the edge of total collapse with all that this implies.
Greece has recently been proclaimed as the villain in the economic waters – but remember how much this country has given the world in the form of cultural values and human insight, and just a greater awareness of this will help in understanding – of course added the many corrupt rulers and individuals throughout the ages, that have milked the Greek treasury.
The next few weeks will probably be a climax to another chapter in the history books when the European economy might look like a gingerbread man without moustaches, crosses, bands and stars.
