Phantis Forum - Who we are 03/13/2017For 20 years now, Phantis is a service offered to people of Greek descent and to anyone interested in news, information, and topics that pertain to the greater concept of Hellenism. The Phantis Forums are a private media platform, where guests and members are invited to join free of charge a civil conversation, and become part of a polity of concerned citizens, mature sports fans, and casual readers who may want to connect with Hellenes of the diaspora. As you may know, Phantis is based in the USA, and for obvious reasons, these are not normal times any longer. The political debate has gone way beyond the acceptable civil engagement norms, therefore, we cannot, in good conscience, sit idly on the sidelines. We feel it’s our duty to champion civil rights & civil liberties, the US constitution and our democratic institutions, to promote science and education, protect the environment, and enhance tolerance and diversity. In this spirit, we have chosen to actively fight racism, bigotry, and the politics of fear, conspiracy theories, fake news and “alternative facts.” We believe in free speech, but this does not mean that we are under any obligation to give a free platform to those who promote anything that’s contrary to our values and mission statement. Editorial and quality control will be applied to the discussion forums, as is practiced in other parts of the Phantis site. The ownership and management of Phantis want to thank the countless past and present members who contributed to the quality of this site over the past two decades, to welcome new members who share our principles. We look to the future with excitement while we realize the defense for the ideals of the Enlightenment is more imperative these days. Thank you for being part of the effort to offer quality services to people of Greek descent worldwide. Lazarus Sismanis and the Phantis Forum team
