The Fall of the Eurozone Periphery, 2009

The future was not to be easy for the Greeks. They were given the promise of peace and justice and opportunities for enrichment. But they were second-class citizens. Bondage brings demoralisation; and the Greeks could not escape from its effects. Moreover, they depended ultimately on the good-will of their suzerain.
From The Fall of Constantinople 1453 by Sir Steven Runciman.
