On Greece

There were no houses for the newcomers, and living as they did during the hot season in badly ventilated huts, they died like flies….For the catastrophe was so overwhelming that men, not knowing what would happen next to them, became indifferent to every rule of religion and of law…As for the gods, it seemed the same thing whether one worshipped them or not, when one saw the good and the bad dying indiscriminately. As for offences against human law, no one expected to be brought to trial or punished…All the funeral ceremonies which used to be observed were now disorganised, and they buried the dead as best they could. Thucydides, History of the Peloponnesian Wars

The Greeks are running out of power, medical supplies, money. They are having an election. There will be no winners until the Greeks regain mastery of their own house.
