The Art Trolls and the Educational Iceberg by HMissXX The Art Trolls and the Educational Iceberg by HMissXX
A long story, written on a multi-layered canvas...

Dedicated to the Special Children of the Art and Music Schools in Athens who are struggling to prevent the government from closing down their schools, in another effort to fight any attempt to differentiate from the norm... their norm... to limit horizons... the new generation's horizons...

--Based on a photo taken during a demonstration organised by the kids last Tuesday. Wish them success!

I'll tell you what's going on, my Ayhanaki.. Education in Greece has been suffering for I can't tell how long. Now, using the crisis pretext, they keep cutting down on educational funds to save Greece from going bankrupt, building up a generation of more ignorant, less artful, less sensitive human beings... a new generation of "blind" people because that's so convenient to them. The Art and the Music Schools have to "go" first, no need to mention why and the rest will follow. Of course, they have to do this by undermining their function, doing things such as not allowing funds for the school buses, which will apparently lead to problems as students can afford neither the money nor the time for public or private transport.
Yes, we should know, my dear friend and I thank You! :hug:

Since many years we are living like that...we were living with Catholics, Ortodoxes; Kurdish, arabics; Shafy Muslims , Sunni muslims alltogehre without having problems. I eahr some student did not respect the national anthem a few days before. Because they tell them they are not turkish. Most of the scools are now private and they are teaching the essay of mMuslim way of living. The municipale of Istanbul offered to peole to vote for the city bus to be seperated for men and for women. It will be fre will forb the woman to get the mens bus but there must be no men in women's bus. So if a woman get into mens bus then it meaan she is a prosyutude...Thanks God, ıt is rejected by Istanbul citizens. To have bild people is too easy top manage for the governements. They clearly say that if you are not at our side then you are against us...
I was imagining the sensitivity of your people and their adoration of art and beauty. Now they arec playing with your ethic and estettic roots. It drives me crazy dear Christinaki mou...My ideas are son utopic if I look around but, I can even sacricafe myself if it can effect to stop them disturbing of the habit of being a free minded human. I can not imagine how people will live without having some art at their daily life...I can takl for hours but it would be the same value at having sonme meetings in the street but gain,inmg nothing...
Wish a better world for Letha, hope you and me can left a better surrounding to her including parthenon and Sultan Ahme mosque in it, as well as Acropolis museum/Athens and Mosaic musuem/Istanbul, besides politechic academy of Athens and Modren art academy of Istanbul...
Please have a nice weekend :D

I wish for a better world for our children too, dear Ayhanaki but I fear that not much hope is left regarding the values and real life education they get at school. Still, I don't think that everything is lost provided the parents life-feed them the way they should. Will they/ we?
My weekend was ok, work work work mostly with a few dA refreshing breaths... Have a wonderful week! :hug:

Λοιπόν κορίτσια (Χριστίνα και Κατερίνα) ωραία τα λέτε αλλά χρειάζεται και λίγο δράση. Εσείς εκεί κάτω έχετε τουλάχιστον όλες τις εξελλίξεις κοντά σας. Εδώ στην Ορεστιάδα τα πράγματα είναι πολύ πιο δύσκολα. Ο κόσμος δεν πείθεται εύκολα για να αντιδράσει. Δυο, τρία άτομα μόνο αντιδρούμε και προσπαθούμε με κάθε τρόπο να ξεσηκώσουμε τον κόσμο όσο μπορούμε. Κάναμε Αγωγή στη ΔΕΗ για το χαράτσι το οποίο και δεν το πληρώσαμε 100 άτομα περίπου. Τώρα λίγοι από εμάς θα συμμετέχουμε στην αγωγή που κάνει το ΕΠΑΜ (Καζάκης) για να κυρηχθεί το νέο Εκκαθαριστικό του Οικονομικού Έτους 2012 παράνομο, διότι είναι προϊόν καταχρηστικού και αντισυνταγματικού νόμου, του Μνημονίου, τον οποίο φόρο εισοδήματος του Οικ. 'Ετους 2012 εννοείται ότι δε θα το πληρώσουμε. Πρέπει να αντισταθούμε με κάθε τρόπο, συμμετέχοντας σε κάθε κίνηση, δημιουργώντας δικές μας κινήσεις. Δεν υπάρχουν πλέον άλλα περιθώρια κορίτσια. Είμαστε σε πόλεμο...

Oι πιο αδύναμοι, οι διαφορετικοί, οποιοσδήποτε τολμήσει να αντισταθεί στον παραλογισμό μιας εξουσίας χτισμένης πάνω στην άμμο... Πολύ θα ήθελα να ξέρω πότε ο κοινωνικός Εγκέλαδος θα αποφασίσει να ταρακουνήσει αποτελεσματικά τα δεδομένα τους, η νάρκη του έχει παρατραβήξει. Ελπίζω στα παιδιά, αλλά φοβάμαι πως και ανάμεσά τους, μόνο μια μειοψηφία θα συνειδητοποιούσε την ανάγκη της αλλαγής. Οψόμεθα...
Σε ευχαριστώ καλό μου Κατερινάκι :heart:

Μια εξουσία χτισμένη πάνω στόν πόνο,στήν αδιαφορία ,στό φόβο καί στη διάλυση κάθε έννοιας κοινωνικού κράτους απορώ πραγματικά πως επιβιώνει...Χριστινάκι μου νομίζω ότι στηρίζεται στο φόβο που έντεχνα καί με ιδιαίτερα αριστοτεχνικό τρόπο έχει απλώσει από πάνω μας σάν ένα τεράστιο δίχτυ....Δυστυχώς καί οι νέοι έχουν αλλάξει. Εκπαιδεύτηκαν να υπακούν καί να πιστεύουν ότι μόνοι τους θα τα καταφέρουν άν είναι έξυπνοι.ευέλικτοι καί ικανοί.... Συμφωνω μαζί σου. Μι πολύ μικρή μειοψηφία έχει μείνει να αγωνίζεται για άλλαγή. Λυπάμαι που θα το πώ, αλλά δέν πιστεύω ότι θα τα καταφέρουν. Άνισος αγώνας καλή μου.....

Kατερινάκι μου, έδωσες μόνη σου την απάντηση για το πώς επιβιώνει... τρομάζοντας και αποχαυνώνοντας... Και δεν υπάρχει ιδανικότερος τρόπος να αποκοιμίσεις τη συνείδηση κάποιου από το να τον αναγκάσεις να παλεύει νύχτα-μέρα για την επιβίωσή του. Είναι όλα μέρος του "Παιχνιδιού", που λογικά, δε μπορεί να έχει ευχάριστο τέλος. Οι ενήλικες είναι/ είμαστε ίσως, χαμένοι "από χέρι". Τα παιδιά, μοιραία πατάνε πάνω στη λογική των γονιών τους για να κτίσουν τον εσωτερικό τους κόσμο και τη σκέψη τους. Αυτό που εισπράττουν αυτή τη στιγμή, είναι είναι ό,τι μπορεί να "ξεράσει" ένας, απόλυατα δικαιολογημένα, αγχωμένος ενήλικας ο οποίος, μεταξύ άλλων, πρέπει να παλέψει και ενάνια στη μεγαλομανία του και να μάθει να αρκείται στα απολύτως βασικά. Ολόκληρη αναδόμηση βιοθεωρίας δηλαδή και δεν ξέρω πραγματικά ποιος έχει τα κότσια να την αποτολμήσει. Το εισπράττω στο φροντιστήριο κάθε μέρα... παιδιά νευρικά, με πλήρη αδυναμία συγκέντρωσης (χωρίς να έχουν μαθησιακές δυσκολίες), με λάθος στόχους, ανίκανα να δώσουν και να εισπράξουν... Δεν ξέρω, δεν είμαι αισιόδοξη, αλλά, κάποιες στιγμές, βλέπω κάποιες μικρούτσικες σπίθες και ελπίζω πως ίσως αυτές κάποια στιγμή μπορέσουν να πυροδοτήσουν την αλλαγή. Αλλά χρειάζεται πολύς αγώνας, εσωτερικός καταρχήν...
