I see very few similarities, besides the constant bickering. Very few science/math geniuses in modern Greece (Greek students rank near the bottom in European achievement tests). Whatever happened to the ancient Greeks? To much diidling with Turks?
Where is the modern Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Archimedes, Euripides, Sophocles, Euclid, Thales etc. etc. etc. You get the point. Instead, we have a bunch of ouzo guzzling Zorbas running around.
