Nuts & Bolts


We live in an age of hypocrisy.  Of course, hypocrisy has always existed in the world, but today, because of the proliferation of the media, it is much easier to disseminate hypocrisy.  The highest level of hypocrisy is found in the Anglo Saxon world — the U.S., Great Britain, the Commonwealth etc.  Perhaps it is because of their puritan background.  In any case, what I am trying to do in this blog is to dissipate some of the hypocrisy that is floating around, and look at the reality behind it.

I am Greek, but I was educated in the United States – Williams College and Harvard Law School – and have lived in the U.S., in London and in Greece.  To be really educated, it is important to have travelled, and seen what people all over the world are like.  I have spent a lot of time in the Far East, visited Africa several times, as well as South America.  People have the tendency not to look outside their own country for solutions to problems.  If they did so, they would find problems easier to solve.

  • This is a great blog, I find myself agreeing with nearly all your views and I have a completely different religious and ethnic background.

  • Thanks a great deal for your exposition on the topic of rape. Frame-ups have been very common. The men folks are the vulnerable ones here.

  • Please keep speaking your mind, this country needs people like you with the courage to say what the majority are thinking, now more than ever.

  • Thank you Mr. Marchessini for giving a voice to the people. We need your erudite voice to wake up the sleeping PC clones.
