To expect alien technology to be just a few decades ahead of ours is too incredible to be taken seriously.
Greece has given Europe the opportunity to fix a defect in the euro zone, that is the fact that we did not have a fiscal union. Now steps have been taken to begin that process. And there is more solidarity from nation to nation, and that is a good thing. That has been Greece's gift to Europe.
The public doesn't want to hear people complaining about having their picture taken.
