Sorry to interfere- but what good is in losing your culture, your language, and-finally- your country? And what you receive- the famous modern
"pop-culture", or, better to say, the total loss of any culture at all?
: Does it really matter? You don't live in Greece anymore. You're now an American, an Australian..a Canadian. You probably interact on a daily basis with Indians, Chinese, Arabs, Africans etc. You have to look forward, not backward. The world is getting smaller..and these petty ethnic squabbles that start with something as harmless as "I'm ever do proud to be a 'Hellene' and Orthodox" will soon be tossed on the trash heap of history. They are fast becoming outdated....only the losers are still getting mileage out of them. The world is changing...and I personally feel that the sooner people stop bragging about THEIR little corner of the world...the better.
