Fascism may be getting traction in Greece


Another ominous sign, in a story in the New York Times by Matthaios Tsimtakis, “Greece’s fascists are gaining”, link here.  
   
So history repeats itself.  Greece’s financial crisis and hardships, and now the refugee crisis, and Islamophobia.
  
What this shows is that down the road, it can lead to pressure on ordinary citizens (eventually even possibly to personally house or sponsor refugees) because of the complex political motives behind the policies of their governments.  But at a personal level, this becomes a moral issue.
