In reality Christos explains accompanied by images and video by 3monkeyproductions, how the ‘crisis’ in Greece is a sign of the collapse of the larger Western system of Capitalism.The video traces historically the peoples resistance in Greece to the construction of the Western version of the Greek state and its ‘top-down’ politics. The recent June 2012 elections in which the newly formed left coalition party in Greece won 71 parliamentary seats shows that the collapse of Western capitalism brings also the opportunity for the emergence of new forms of ‘real democracy’ in Greece, Europe, and Beyond.
