For the next batch of readings for the Fantin Reading Group, we have taken a more freestyled approach. People have been asked to read up on the current situation in Greece and bring their thoughts and articles to the next meeting. Linked below are the articles that have been posted to the Fantin email list.
If you have anything you’d like to add or have a link that’sworth sharing, please leave it in the comments and I’ll endeavour to add it to the post.
Speaking of Greek anarchists, here’s a joke I heard about ten years ago:
It’s an anti-G8 summit and the anarchists are having a meeting. The subject turns to the use of violence. An Australian says, “Yeah, we don’t do anything like that. We’re not as full-on as the British.”
The British in turn say, “It’s true, we do have occasional fights. But we’re not as willing to confront the State as the French.”
The French are flattered, but say to the meeting, “Oui, but we are not as militant as the Germans.”
The Germans, aware of their reputation, offer “Yes, we are very militant. But we are not as crazy as the Greeks.”
The Greeks say, “We are Greek. We are anarchist.”
