Modern Greeks are uncultured?

Apparently so, according to a survey done by Metron Analysis, a market research and public opinion survey company located in Greece.

The survey found that Greeks would rather go clubbing or watch a DVD at home rather than read a book or attend a theatrical production. Greek knowledge of modern Greek and foreign artists is limited, and they tend to reject cultural works that they feel offend their traditional values.

Despite this, the majority of Greeks claim that culture is "everything" and "arts are the main drive of cultural expression."

Highlights magazine editor Konstantinos Noulas said "the average Greek has a low cultural level –which is inexcusably low– but these findings, regardless of how annoying they may sound, can only alarm us for the better."

Surprising data from a country that has a rich variety of ancient culture. Still, if the guise of the teenagers around me here is a telling sign of things to come, Greeks won't get any more cultured in the years to come.

That's only cause the sweaty, fat,slung-bottomed dagos have fuck all to do with the Greeks. Their misogynistic culture, dark skin and rabid religiosity owe more to the Turks and Slavs than anyone else. Plus they are (heretical) Christians while everyone knows the ancient Greeks were not. They have however retained one characteristic; they are still a bunch of lying, hairy faggots.
