Dive into the detail

Oi Polloi is an endeavour with an ambitious goal: to create a legacy that resonates through the ages, for the benefit of all humanity. Just as the western world experienced a Renaissance by rediscovering the achievements of the ancients, we want to purposefully create and leave behind an inheritance that our descendants can mine for their own renewal. So, grab a cup of tea, and dive into some of our founder, Mary Valiakas', blogs to grasp the full extent, scope, and sentiment behind Oi Polloi.

Turn that frown, upside down

Where did Oi Polloi come from? Why Greece? And will things ever get better? Find out in this short-ish read. A summary and rallying cry to reimagine how society operates, without waiting for anyone else to do it for us. As consultant and entrepreneur, Cindy Gallop says, "“The single largest pool of untapped resources in this world is human good intentions that are never translated into actions.”

we can still feel, can't we?

Have we lost all perspective and empathy? A prayer for Syria, Humanity, and this rock we call home. A short, moving read that shows even in dark times, inspiration can be found. In fact, it MUST be found if we are to remember who we truly are and why caring for each other and our world matters. 


It can be done

Oi Polloi exists because we believe opportunity for 'better' exists if we look at life in the right way – and then implement it correctly. As William Blake says, "If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite." What if we didn't close ourselves up in a prison of the habitual and the status quo? What if we didn't see things through the "narrow chinks of [our] cavern"? Cleanse your own doors of perception, and understand why the renaissance of humanity is necessary and pressing, through this enlightening, uplifting, and mind-expanding long read.

Hope is not a lottery ticket you can sit on the sofa and clutch, feeling lucky. It is an axe you break down doors with in an emergency. To hope is to give yourself to the future - and that commitment to the future is what makes the present inhabitable
