Do you remember the childhood game of trust, where you close your eyes and pray the person behind you will catch you when you fall? If so, that lesson still applies today with adult games of trust.
Dawning of a frightening movement

It’s an image that sends shivers down my spine, when 18 members of the Greek Parliament stand before their people and raise there right arm in salute, the very same salute reserved for Adolf Hilter. Golden Dawn, a right wing extremist political organization hell bent on returning Greece to the Greeks, has gained frightening popularity in a country on the brink of an economic meltdown. One survey suggests the organization has gone from 12 per cent to 22 per cent popularity in five months.
