GREECE Lesson on spending
Greek civilization has lasted for thousands of years. It has survived domination by Persia, Turkey, Rome and Nazis. It has survived untold natural disasters including the 300-year-long "little ice age." It has survived the Dark Ages, famines, plagues and internal struggles. It has survived invasions and domination. It has survived two world wars and the Cold War.
One of the world's oldest and most formative civilizations may soon face its end by a much more insidious enemy than it has ever faced in its thousands of years of existence. Uncontrolled deficit spending and the welfare state may spell its doom.
Perhaps there is a lesson here for our relatively young nation.
Mark A. Sity West Allis
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure,
the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,
its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery..”
— Winston Churchill
What else has brought about so much poverty and misery to so many across the globe? What else can we attribute the deaths of millions (200 million in the 20th century alone). And what is yet to come?
