Throwing stones in Greece and one general strike after another.
Just now I had written something in the last blog about Profitum.
A professional is someone who takes responsibility for his own performance.
What is happening in Greece? Citizens are on strike against the government.
Against the state. Who is the state? Who elected the politicians?
So in this case the demo is against the result of the last own election.
If you want democracy, throwing stones is not the best way to conduct a "vote". I had watched the vote yesterday on N-TV. The pictures showed of course the stone throwers and fire. But if you looked closely, there were not so many people on the square in front of the parliament. Much just a media drama?
Of course, it is a personal hardship for many people when the economic situation is bad and poverty is rampant. Unfortunately, the causes also always lie in one's own past.
Something must have led to the personal situation being so bad. If this responsibility is not accepted, there is usually no real sustainable solution. The same applies to Germans. What is not whined about who all takes away jobs, minimum wage, etc.... The employer, the government, all should fix it.
But if life expectancy has increased by 20 years, are we really prepared to work 20 years longer?
Only 20% of the German population goes to work. And that is less and less in years. We finance an ever greater luxury. Good, what this society can manage.
However, it is also important for Germany that we no longer finance this primarily on credit, but actually earn it. Privately, this means perhaps only buying a car if you can really afford it. Warren E. Buffett recommends that a car should not cost more than three months' wages. Who adheres to this?
If we take responsibility for our own well-being back into our own hands, then we can also demand from politicians what they have to do for it.
In this sense, Greece is probably everywhere, and everywhere the same dangers and opportunities loom.
The world is ok. We decide for ourselves what we make of it!
