EU failed it's people

 

Many often ask whether Greece is going to go back to the drachma. The answer is no! We don't think this will ever happen. The European Union has been pushing to bring all the european nations under the EU umbrella and into the eurozone so they can implement a unified economic policy in the whole of Europe. In pursuing this, the E.U. has been putting all the emphasis on how the banks and the big business will maintain their profits but haven't taken into account the interests of the ordinary european citizens who work for a living and struggle to make ends meet.

The people of Europe, just like the rest of the world, all they need to be happy, is to have a job and a social security system that will provide pensions to the aged, support to the unemployed and those in need, a good public health system and free education for all. The provision of these basic human needs has ensured that we've had a stable society in the past 60 or so years. Now, all these basic things are being removed. As a result we are experiencing turbulent political times across the globe. Things are much worse in the so called third world in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

European and other world leaders need to get their act together and work on how to get out of this humanitarian crisis. Instead of pushing people deeper into poverty, one positive move would be, to write off the debt of struggling poor countries and make a fresh start.
