While Mr. Panos has often been used as the poster boy for the Greek people, his shortened premise is - we will keep taking the Europeans money until they no longer want to give it to us. In the meantime, the Greek people have suffered due to the previous largesse of their government and need for a 'reversion' to the mean of their relative wealth. The following brief clip offers some insight (or defense) of who the real man-on-the-street is in Greece. Not the media's interpretation of a lazy, cheating, ungrateful, helpless, corrupt, violent, rude, racist, tax-evading, trouble-making thieving vandal - that lives with his mother; but a scapegoat for all that is wrong in Europe and remains shocked, confused, frustrated, and upset. It's someone's fault, right? Why not Alex?
From the Omikron Project:
Greek crisis? Get the whole picture.
We are a group of regular guys and girls living in a crisis-hit country called Greece.
We got sick of watching the rest of the world get fed inaccurate images of life here today, and wanted to do something about it.
So instead of complaining, we built Omikron Project: a place for ideas, discussion... and ACTION.
