Humanity never ceases to amaze me in how it deals with the past in the present. During World War II the German army occupied Greece for four years during which time it murdered hundreds of thousands. So, fast forward to 2013 and who do thousands of Greeks hold up as their model–NAZIS! A new party, Golden Dawn– has emerged which believes problems in their country are the result of poor immigrants from Africa. Exactly, how poor immigrants could somehow be responsible for the collapse of the Greek economy must be among the great mysteries of the world. These modern Nazis have physically attacked poor people and they even have murdered those who stand up for peace and logical solutions to problems.
After the murder by Golden Dawn thugs of musician Pavlos Fyssas there finally has arisen demands to curb the children of Hitler. Greeks are finally recognizing that tolerating thugs only makes them more prone to violence and death.
