Comment Of The Day

What the the Mediterranean world lacks in functional and organized governance familiar to us in North America, Oceania and Northern Europe, more than makes up in another institution: The family.

Indeed, I guess, it is the institution that is paramount across Mediterranean civilization. The may differ in cultures, languages, history and even government but the one thing that's common to each - whether they come from Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, North Africa, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey and still further into the out skirts of the region Iran and Iraq. The one country that's part of the Mediterranean that may not fit totally into this is France but it carries a strong Mediterranean character specifically in the South.

It's hard to explain but there's an implicit understanding among these cultures and societies that the family is the only true legitimate institution.
