Abandoned Olympic Sports Complex in Athens (14 pics)

Posted in Random » Weird   9 Aug 2012   / 23287 views

The hosting of Summer Olympic Games cost Greece about $11 billion in 2004. The glorious complex of sports facilities was erected in Athens. However, just within a few years after the Games the magnificent venues became unused and fell into dereliction.

@ Ahhh yes... Greece

Sweden is socialist as well. Sweden represents the finest of socialism without sophistic and wanna be sarcastic arguments. Your argument is as good as a pube on pipe.

Greece has problems due to the decline of tourism, leading to more and more bank loans, since the people couldn't get used to a harder way of life.

Looking at the USA and it's decline, all I can say is capitalism at its finest.

Yeah, that's cute. Greece is bankrupt because of reduced tourism.

So, even their economy is based on other countries money.

How socialist. Helping your fellow man by spending other peoples money.

@ August

Pretty much, yes. Sarcasm used like a little cocky kid and calling others' affirmations 'cute' without any kind of argumentation.

You're smart, now, aren't you?

The USA is not being run by a capitalist, his policies are actually quite socialistic... So yes, socialism at its finest. Anyone who prefers socialism to capitalism doesn't know anything about economics, politics or history...

Please stop, really, just stop. Capitalism is an economical system, whilst socialism is a social-political system. They've nothing to do with each other. Just like blaming socialism for the lack of budget in a country.


Other than that, U.S.A. has socialistic policies? It has federal democratic policies, ignorance-man. Yup. That's what I'll call you from now on. I-M.

Don't lecture me on political structures imbecile. I am well aware of them. Considering the fact you don't think socialism can be democratic, and that you don't understand that socialism has a huge impact on the economics of a society just proves what a complete idiot you are.

I will stop. You're hopeless.

Sophistic (Ad Hominem, Straw Man, Ignoratio Elenchi) douchefag.

It seems you're not aware of the difference between a political and economical system. It seems that the difference you're failing to see between a Socialist ECONOMICAL country and a Socialist POLITICAL country is what keeps this argumentation alive. Have you checked Greece's economical and political policies? Or the USA's, for what it's wroth? Have you read what I've written? I reckon not, since you're writing like a monkey at a keyboard. The only thing you're doing is making a fool of yourself.

I will continue to reply to you, since you haven't stopped. I will do so, by bringing non-sophistic, non-dysthimic arguments, until the monkey (meaning you) stops typing moronic comments.

Grow the fuck up, you arrogant bigot.

P.S. Plus-ing your comment and Minus-ing mine will show me! Cocky asshat.

P.P.S. Before you rage any further, at least TRY to read my comments and see what I've been trying to prove. You're being a sophistic kid.

@ Ahhh yes... Greece


Greece != socialist country.

The Politics of Greece takes place in a parliamentary representative democratic republic, whereby the Prime Minister of Greece is the head of government, and of a multi-party system. Legislative power is vested in both the government and the Hellenic Parliament. Between the restoration of democracy and the Greek government-debt crisis the party system was dominated by the liberal-conservative New Democracy (Νέα Δημοκρατία – Nea Dimokratia) and the social-democratic Panhellenic Socialist Movement (Πανελλήνιο Σοσιαλιστικό Κίνημα – Panellinio Sosialistiko Kinima, ΠΑΣΟΚ/PASOK).

Another set of greek ruins are on the way. And you are fooling yourself if you think socialism isn't about money too. The leaders always live like billionaires in capitalist countries while keeping the people repressed.

That was when greece could open the tap for unlimited money then the french and german close the tap forever.

Capitalism and Socialism both have their flaws and strengths, a better system would be a combination of the two.
The main flaw in both systems is greed, in it's many forms.

August, you're a complete idiot. Greece's economy is in the shit hole because of its government spending which lead to massive amounts of debt. A lack of tourism doesn't cause a government to intentionally misrepresent it's economic statistics you small brained piece of shit...

This is not very accurate... most of these are actively used today and you can see them in football games, beach volley tournaments and (sadly) in artists shows too. The photographs are taken on a dreary, sad day and presented here. But there are others indeed abandoned installations and there is inevitably LOTS of open space that could be reclaimed after the Games...

So when it comes to Greece everything is political and financial.
In Turin, Italy it's also an olympic village left into dust, and I bet the London village will also have the same faith. If you think it is a problem come with a solution, otherwise accept it that way.
Worst Political SITUATION ever on earth are the Greek one if we create THE democracy now we destroy it be voting for our useless politicians the fact that Greece never needed the Olympic games no one is bothering we are a traditional poor country now we pay the price for that stupid Olympic Games no one profits about now we discharge for the useless politicians and there decisions bringing whatever is foreign and ''good'' in our Country Greece has to leave from EU and NATO also our Neighbours Russia Bulgaria Romania And Serbia can help us and we them also to create a New Alliance against New world wide Order fuck the banking system fuck China and there cheap economy.
