E.U. Crisis, Greek Elections: It's Not About the Money Honey, We Don't Need your Money, Money.
day Greeks have the stage all to themselves. Tomorrow the audience
will either applaud or walk out of the theatre. Either way the show
eyes focus on whether outside forces can shape the outcome of the
Greek election through direct threats or scare tactics. A now
familiar strategy affecting the democratic process across Europe.
we forget, and we should never desert our history, 80yrs ago during
the last great financial débâcle, democracy in Europe was reduced
from 24 countries in 1920 to 11 by 1939.
and fiscal union crudely peddled from Brussels, and to some extent
Berlin, is perceived in a cohering manner. This will not work just as
totalitarianism didn't succeed in 1939.

over predicting the situation and outcomes in Greece.
is on a collision course with foreign lenders...... Chaos erupts.....
Greece is forced to declare bankruptcy...... If Greece leaves the
Euro, a disorderly default is likely as creditors lose patience.
If the Germans don't act.... it
could lead to an economic Armageddon....collapse in confidence across
Europe threatens ….global
crisis that will have dire consequences.......
It's not about the money. Greece and Germany are no longer lovers in the Euro family. How
they divorce is how the Euro will reshape the European Project. Picture Frankfurt 2012
the end it is not about the money, money. We don't need your money
money....In the end it is about dignity, independence and a sense of
well being. Greece's impassioned and tempestuous affair with the Euro
is over. Whatever way one sees the outcome of the election, Greece
and Germany have fallen out and recriminations are bitter.
one Greek living in Germany put it "It
was absolutely wrong for Greece to enter the euro. It's only a small
country of 10 million people; it can't possibly destabilise the EU' –
but they were mistaken.”
am flying back to Thessaloniki on Sunday morning just to vote,"
he said proudly. "We live in a world where democracy has been
taken away from us. My vote is the only thing left for me and I must
do it for my country."

Trying to eradicate tribalism from the world would be a futile endeavour. But Salome hopes that his readers learn to recognize the common traits they share with people all over the world, and thereby develop tolerance and compassion for other tribes. The biggest and broadest tribe is one to which we all belong, and that’s the human race. Click on image to go to the review page.
Post-post photojournalism is now Photomoderne.
Post photojournalism entered the media world around 2003 with the arrival of citizens journalism. There came the use of free Internet images with decline in newspaper readership and revenue. Though it was depleting as a press profession photojournalists refused to abandon it as an outdated medium.
In post-post photojournalism (since 2008) where acceptance of all things new, creation of new roles, markets and the return of the credible source to verify Citizen's news, we see photojournalism branching in many directions. Today it evolves, develops, and creates a powerful destiny to fulfill.
Post-post photojournalism is now Photomoderne breaking with tradition.

A picture from Berlin. A Martin Luther King poster I think translates as "Expressing the truth needs courage." Although this was taken in 2006 I feel it can be put to use to celebrate the King anniversay.
