For people that do not strive they have managed some incredible records of consumerism. The Porsche Cayenne has sold more in Greece, in net numbers, than anywhere else in Europe.

Greeks are among the top home owners and owners of second homes in Europe. You do not achieve this kind of property ownership with no striving. Perhaps they strive a little bit ... indirectly.

A few days ago, as happens every year, the equivalent of GCE results were published and as always they were front page news. These are not the signs of passive Buddha like people, it looks like getting ahead is a priority. Now if only there were leaders who could understand the true impulses and drive of the people and stop this "left proggressive" BS we would get somewhere.

Technophobic neoluddites in government in 2015 is getting so tedious.

The days of the Greek peasant plodding along on his donkey are long gone. Here is mantinada from Crete that shows the modern spirit-

Bloco mou stisan ta EKAM

Proxtes is tin Frissara

Ma den ypologisane

To turbo to Navarra

I know. Most inherit property in villages from relatives whilst owning in Athens etc wherever they happen to be working.

We've already discussed how Greece produces great minds.

Perhaps Greece produced great minds a couple of thousand years ago. Today it seems to produce an amazing number of closed minds.

Greece is a very efficient factory for producing Balkan tossings. :lol:

There are still some great minds being produced.... in other countries.
They only become evident in foreign Anglo countries which are more meritocratic.. (USA, Britain, Australia, Canada) and a few in Europe (Germany, France)

Any Greek with any potential leaves Greece. That place is hijacked by the corrupt elite, where excellence and innovation is not rewarded but frowned upon.
Where the indoctrinated masses still live in the 1970's and every 92 average IQ citizen still bears the cross of Che Guevara.

Indeed, the treasonous leftist propaganga is still the biggest problem in Greece today. The only hope for Hellenism is GD. :wink:

The only hope for us all is that Hellenism and the cruder forms of nationalism like it fade gently into history.

The recent discussion in this thread is what I mean. Can anyone seriously believe that a person born in another country, raised in another country and successful in another country owes his success to coming from a country that he mmay have never visited and whose language he doesn't speak. It's right up there with negroes having natural rhythm.

:lol:
You'll be surprised though.

And yes, Greek immigrants or 2nd or 3rd generation Greeks do make up a significant percentage of the scientific contribution globally.
But it's almost never officially credited as 'Greek' since the institutions they work for are almost always foreign.
It's bizarre I know, do some research.

I'll agree, that little to nothing ever comes out of Greece directly.
