In Greece Orthodox Christianity is the main religion, the chief distinction of which is respect and tolerance for people of other faiths. As Anastasios Yannoulatos states: "Being created in the image of God, every human being is our brother and sister". But with the emergence of economic crisis the society is getting divided and the crisis destroys not only the economic stability of the country, but the social stability as well. The party "Golden Dawn" which was never popular among the population before, received 6,97% during voting which gave them 18 seats in the Parliament in 2012. Having used Nazi symbolism and praised figures of Nazi Germany in the past, the party is described by scholars and media as Neo-Nazi and fascist with xenophobic and racist attitude toward people. This project shows how the nowadays' financial crisis destroys the balance between the spiritual and the social. It undermines the moral foundations of the Greek nation, makes people break social bonds and gives birth to hatred. If the society does not get back to their spiritual roots, the consequences will be inconvertible.
