all the solidarity that Greece has received and its economy is still in the toilet....
Welfare/Solidarity is meant to prevent the worst....starving/freezing to death on the streets! It's a generous help to absorb the worst of life's shocks which can happen to everybody.
It's granted with the case in mind that the giver can become a taker and needing this help at one time in his life too. But it is always meant SHORT TERM, only as long till you get on your own feet again. But that you have to do yourself!
When you pay for strangers welfare and the recipient keeps on receiving without any signs of getting out of it, is it your fault now?
Germany feels self-righteous
Every giver feels self-righteous...and every taker feels not only gratefulness but also resentment....it' only human!
Greece is still poorer than it was before the euro.... a contradiction.
Now that is just a lie!
It doesn't even matter who's right and who's wrong
It matters alot!
tear the EU apart or simply turn it into a de facto German economic crypto-empire.
Only if the welfare recipients really truly want to stop the welfare...thinking they would be better off without!
The only ones tearing the EU apart could be the givers stop wanting to provide solidarity/welfare...
