Today i offer you the words of Alkiinos Ioannides (my translation),

We have sold the best of our youth. We have let them waste their lives in ledgers, offices and lifeless accounts. We have made them slaves with managerial titles. We have fed them money, we have educated money, taught them to think money, to serve money, to dream money, to marry money, give birth to money, to be money. They speak fluently the worst of english (the english of commerce) and very poorly the best of Greek (the Cypriot Greek). Once the money is gone onto what shall they hold?

Today i leave it at this.
