The circumstances of my contact with the action “Eyes of Truth” came to support my personal need for a new perspective of the phenomena, where all the more people in Europe or generally in the West, have declared an economic and political crisis. In my opinion, the crisis is first and foremost social and rooted in a neglected moral sense. I refer to the ethics of coexistence and mutual progress. Way before Europeans (including amongst them the Greeks) faced an economic crisis, they accepted a lifestyle that was dependent on and still maintains a provocative and immoral stance in the vast majority of the inhabitants of this planet. The quality of life on the West, the “evolution” and the “Progress” of the Europeans, not only became indifferent to the welfare of it’s citizens in the so-called third world, but actually was, and is a supporter of their misery. The synchronization (anything but random) of the downpour on European land from immigrants in search of progress, and general economic and political crisis, in my eyes seems like a perfect irony!
The eyes of truth, in my opinion, sneer this situation and reveal with the most simple and direct way the lack of general social consciousness of the western world and the need to establish a new ethical framework.
The diptychs of children’s faces in the city center of Athens, testify to a single truth: The antidote to crisis is the respect and coexistence. Only then will we deserve (Westerners) to shout that we are the 99%!
