Kuroshin: Greece isn't a dust bowl. Things are bad now and their quality of life is absolutely going to take a nose-dive, but can't they simply be Greeks for a while and get their shiat in order?

The US certainly couldn't, but Greece (in one form or another) has been around as long as civilization itself.

You are suggesting that a people who refuse to pay taxes to support the public good could just work together for the public good.

Moreover, you are suggesting that in the US, where people pay taxes for the public good, people are less community-minded than Greece, where people refuse to pay their taxes.

You suggest that Greece is somehow good because the people who lived there two and a half millennia ago created some interesting things. Greek culture has been completely overhauled many times since then. Invasions of foreign tribes have pretty much replaced the genetics of whoever was living there. Is it your theory that there is something in the water which makes them better suited for civilization?
