Greek, age 40, (as if my middle-age crisis wasn't enough I have to deal with the finacial one too).
Appeared in national newspapers both with illlustrations and editorial cartoons.
Not totally digital, i draw things apart and merge and paint them digitally, but most cherished and more distinctive i belive are my linocuts (when time permits).
Nice point Mike.However in Europe with the unique exception of the Greek island of Crete, there is no precedent of people carryng their own guns. Usually revolutions have happened by attacking the «sort of Statal Vault of Guns», or after defeating the statal anti-revolutionary forces. Under this perspective the revolution is not a matter of carryng or not carryng guns, but if enough consensus is built throughout society. Said that, is obvious that an european point of view cannot be but critical towards trigger-happy gun-holders & towards the gun industry.You should aslo add that in European history usually gun-holders were right-wing paramilitias... so when we also see children killing children is hard to thing towards an armed revolution... however, when did the people raise their guns against the US state?!(Black Panthers excluded since we're speaking for nowdays)
actually it is!.. ...only 2,4% of the entire European Economy, and it's debt only 1,8% of Total eurozone debt...It makes you wonder.
heh thank you Bernard...

They should instead be told that while they keep looking at their greek counterparts debt (1.8%), the EURO value has dropped from nearly 2 dollars to nearly 1 dollar (50%!!!!!!!!!!), whic means that they gave up their national currency took EUROS and the day after found themselves with HALF their initial buying value. Perhaps THAT's why they became poor.
In Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia pensioners and other poor people that are being told that they pay to bail out their richer counterparts greeks, shuld be told that what they are actually doing is making money while lending Greece with interest. They should also be told that the greek debt is 1,8% of the total European debt, and that Greek Economy is a 2,4% piece of the total European Economy. Which in comparison with a family budget is the value of their children's 2 chocolates. Why a country is forced into recession for 2 chocolates? Especially when the 2 chocolates value was made buying goods from Germany?
