Greece, the cradle of Western civilisation, will in modern times perhaps bring about, ironically, European (and all of Western?) civilisation’s downfall. “Downfall?” you may ask. Surely, civilisation is much more than economics.
True, but unless a civilisation can feed its face, civility withers away, and with it much of its cultural accoutrements. But all may not be lost; there will still remain the Kingdom of iron – Rome; more specifically, the Vatican – to iron out the Olympian Mess.
(In the book of book of Daniel, the Kingdom of iron appears to be Rome).
Enjoy the Olympics.
