Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Greece Referendum


Sunday is the big day where Greeks must decide whether to vote “Yes” or “No.”

No doubt that many arguments have already taken place, but we need to remember that this is a very important decision for the Greeks. It affects them directly.

Yes, we argue on social media; armed with our opinions, our fervent zeal, but whether Greece votes yes or no, it does not affect us. For us to cast our judgements on the Greek people, before the referendum has even had a chance to happen, when we are not Greeks ourselves; it is the very definition of selfishness.  We are less guilty than the creditors however, (our solitary source of redemption) when we offer our ideas on how to truthfully help Greece.

The yes vote would mean austerity for Greece. It essentially puts Greece deeper in debt.  The Greek people would end up working for little to no pay, work longer hours, and it would essentially subject Greece to a lowered standard of living for the next 20 to 30 years.  That’s bad.

If Greece votes no, then there would be more talks, and more negotiations, and a small chance that Greece leaves the Eurozone.  (But at least that would not destroy Greece.)

Either way, if cooler heads do not prevail, companies in Greece will end up getting sold off, or auctioned to the highest bidders.  There would be less resources devoted to things like education, social development, or infrastructure.  That’s really bad.

I think the logical move would be to give it more time.  If it takes years to come to an agreement, then years must be spent to attain it. Merkel please take it easy on the Greeks. Nobody loses, everybody gains.

(Or you know, Merkel could offer the Greeks a really good incentive in order to attract more business. Just saying.)
