Probably because it had been the only county in Balknans out of the Soviets' block and a NATO member...

...by the way, where you thought is Greece? :)

Actually a smaller part of Turkey is in the Balkans, too.

What are your views on EU expansion? Should EU include Russia or Turkey?

I know where Greece is. It just never crossed my mind that it's in the Balkan peninsula.

Oh, and I forgot: Welcome!

I might be going to Athens for a couple of days in July.

a true product of the EU. False.


The statement had nothing to do with politics but geography: the three countries i come from are EU members, so it was just a light comment, nothing political.
And tending towards socialism does not mean one agrees with the way it is applied (or rather the way the socialist parties apply it). Which I think is pretty clear in what i say at the beginning. Never said that what is currently going on is socialism, I dont believe so. Especially as Europe has been turning pretty right in the past ten years.The only socialist i said i respected is actually a social democrat, which is not the same thing. I also clearly stated my dislike for the french socialist party.

Take an economics class.

Thanks. once again, never said it was applicable in all fields. Once again, its clear in what i say. I even said i agree with some right concepts, especially in economics.
Here also depends on how its applied. But here again, a free market is necessary but doesnt have to be unhealthily so.

the option of reading what the other person says until the end, is usually pretty helpful, so they dont repeat themselves... :)

EU expansion is a difficult one... Im not exactly what I believe anymore. The ten new countries coming in all at once, had some bad effects, especially on the peoples perception of europe (one saw that in the referedums where founding countries rejected the constitution). Feeling european hadnt been consolidated enough before it all happened. So I dont really know bout other countries. I actually think Turkey should have entered before the ten others. It wouldnt have given people the sense of chaos and being overwhelmed. As for Russia, its hardly in Europe, and the russians dont even want to enter the EU.

By the way, whats PoFo?

Just a note, Libertarians tend to be condescending, because they believe that if you don't believe in the Holy Free Market, you must be unenlightened and thus ignorant. Ignoring them is your best deal.

Social Sciences aren't real sciences. I don't know why that is something to be ashamed of though. A field of study doesn't have to be a "science" to be respectable.

Right, but it's simply false to claim that social sciences aren't "real" sciences. If they weren't science, they would be renamed to something other than social science.

i sense a subtle mind, very welcome sir.

PoFo would not be very fun without the Humanities, If what you want is tidiness, I suggest that you asking for monotony. People are what they make themselves, is it really such a wonder that they want to be different? All the social sciences observe invented and dynamic behaviors - you can find anything you want if you look far enough into something thats wholly imagined in the first place. The question here is what do you want from life, naturally its easier to talk about how to make it happen, but how banal.

how do you feel about Brits swiping chunks of the Acropolis? Personally I've always thought we have the means to create new and equally sacred monuments so while bothering about ancestral artifacts - its a waste of time, why cant we make cool stuff like that anymore?

Architecture these days sucks. People in a couple of thousands years' time will have nothing to preserve.

"Oh, let's preserve this 3,000-year-old building that looks like a failed remake of a 6,000-year-old-building."

What is your first language?

English french, greek since 7

I dont understand why the science debate is so great here. There are pure sciences (math, physics, etc) that are verifiable or try to be at least. They all have in common the use of the scientific method (hypothesis, experiment, verification, or something like that, cant remember).
Then there are social sciences, that try to apply this scientific method, and especially scientific tools such as statistics, methodical data gathering etc, to human behaviour. Human behaviour not always being verifiable, social sciences are not always as scientifically accurate, that is not as predictable (if you boil water, itll steam whatever happens, people have tended to react strong to extreme oppression, however doesnt mean there arent exceptions), and are often very dependent on circumstances ( as are pure sciences, except that human circumstances change in a less predictable manner).
