What happened to Greece? It brought us democracy, philosophy, law, mathematics, great architecture, and many other magnificent things. Why is it not one of the strongest countries on earth anymore?

The same reason Egypt is no longer a super power.

The same reason Rome fail and Constaninople turned to Istanbul.

Islam was responsible for the dark ages and final destruction of Coptic Egypt.

So it was Muslims that burn down Rome,library of Alexander and books containing the works of Greek philosophers.Don't tell me u never hear about the dark age and role played by the church. (Spanish Inquisition, outlawing the works of Greek philosophers).

Civilization rise and fall so do empires. It's the way of the world.But all great empires fall from within.

SOCRATES, PLATO AND ARISTOTLE ARE GOLDEN AGE GREEK PHILOSOPHERS. PHILOSOPHY REACHED IT ZENITH DURING THEIR TIME.

Natural resources (which is directly related to size of their landmass) and more importantly population.
They have none of these two. I stand to be corrected, but they majorly depend on tourism - just like Egypt. But Egypt get a huge amount of aid from US and same goes for Israel (US 51st state). The amount of aid Israel get from US is more than what the whole of Africa gets.

Unfortunately, Eurozone members are not as rich and generous as the US. While the Germans may not mind paying more taxes to bailout fellow Germans, French may not mind same for bailing out fellow French, they grumble in silence paying more to bailout Greece and Portugal etc. And that may also have been a factor that led to BREXIT.

Philosophies and others that they gave the world in those era are good, but not much can be achieved practically without natural and human resource to apply the philosophies to

I concur with majority of the points above but I disagree with that of natural resources . Nigeria and so many Africa countries are blessed with numbers of natural resources, I stand to be corrected I doubt if there is any African countries apart from SA and maybe Egypt possesses what Greece has
