A large percentage of Greeks have a negative view of immigrants, according to a study conducted by research centre “DiaNOesis”. The findings 62.1% of those polled attributed the economic crisis to internal failings, with only 9.7% responding the faults lies outside Greece. 76% responded that the Greek society was at fault saying Greeks had become used to living beyond their means. A very revealing, and some strange finding, was the fact that 8 in 10 Greeks believed there were secret organisations that were “pulling the strings” in secrecy. Another striking number is the 26.5% who believed planes were leaving chem-trails in the skies. 88.3% of the respondents agreed or partly agreed that the number of immigrants in Greece over the last 10 years was larger than should be, with 64.4% saying they believed immigrants contributed to a rise in crime.
The average Greek citizen, eight years into an unprecedented post-war economic implosion, now wants a smaller state and lower taxes -- cornerstones of a western liberal outlook.Nevertheless, a majority of respondents in a recent poll, which generated the aforementioned results, also view capitalism with suspicion.The head of DiaNEOsis, an ambitious new Athens-based research and policy institute, Kyriakos Pierrakakis, also told "N" this week that Greeks' affinity for Europe also appears to be sliding, even with 160 billion euros already funneled into the country's coffers in the form of bailout loans by European creditors.The average Greek respondent is proud of his identity and admires Vladimir Putin's Russia.The one-time dichotomy of "Right-Left" on the Greek political spectrum has now given way to dilemma of "Europe or Anti-Europe".Essentially, the average Greek citizen, circa 2017, is changing, yet changing without any clear indication of where this change is heading, Pierrakakis says.One out of three respondents considers a return to the weakly drachma as a solution to the country's economic woes.
