Comments on: Greek vote is a cause for relief but not rejoicing Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: ZGHerm Tue, 19 Jun 2012 23:35:07 +0000 I am sorry to say but it is totally irrelevant what is happening in Greece.
It makes for good theatre but the situation is close to sitting at the bedside of a terminally ill patient, and when there is a flicker of the hands or face the family members become excited about possible recovery or healing, while the true diseases keeps eating the patient from the inside as no proper diagnosis or cure was established.
The problem we are facing is a global problem.
Our whole way of life, the constant quantitative growth economic model, and the political establishment serving it has driven us into a dead end since it was always unnatural and unsustainable, and now the whole structure started to become self destructive.
We behave like cancer in this global, interconnected and interdependent human network with our insatiable appetite for more, way above necessities and means, alway gaining at the expense of others, climbing higher by trampling over the rest and the environment around us.
Now there is nowhere else to go, but we still try stubbornly adjusting, restricting or stimulating without any true purpose, simply waiting for the miracle of “return to growth”.
Until we honestly start examining ourselves why we are where we are and what our conditions are in this new reality, we will keep sliding closer and closer to the edge.
