The Economy is in shambles
There is a total lack of leadership
Hope is at a minimum
The people feel out of control and without a sense of optimism for the future, they lash out at anyone who is different from them.
Conditions that existed in 1930s tht gave rise to hitler and an extremely xenophobic Nazi Germany, and a Modern day Greece.
(Do you think Malaysia is going on a downward spiral too?)
societies like individuals need to know where they are going. We all need to feel like the work we are doing is advancing some cause or purpose.
To feel the lives we lead and the jobs we toil have meaning and value beyond the daily act of breathing or the monthly routine of paying bills.
Great societies, like great companies, have a bold sense of the future and they employ the population to help build it.
When that bold sense of future is absent, however, we become obsessed not with building our future, but with attacking those, we believe, would prevent us from doing so. Instead of taking responsibility for own our state, we blame others for the state we are in.
(Sounds so much like Political Party we know?)
Worse Still, there are opportunists who would capitalize on the rallying crowds to consolidate their own power.
They feed the frenzy, they stir the paranoia not because its the right thing to do, but because it helps them get elected or gives them a leadership position they have not earned.
This is what happened in Nazi Germany. This is what happened countless times in many Arab dictatorships and this is what's happening in Greece.
(Is this happening to us?)
