Are they all the same? Actually, they couldn’t be more different.
Enjoy the “genuine Greek feeling” script of Alex, we picked it up around the web, and just learned about the BY site Byline, a one-stop crowdfunding and media outlet platform where journalists and quality bloggers reach readers directly.
Hi Alex, I really enjoyed reading this it was like conversation
.”……how it is terribly strange how fascist party Golden Dawn were jailed when New Democracy, the dominant right-wing party needed votes and released when they would take votes from disillusioned SYRIZA voters. About how breakaway faction Popular Unity’s Plan B seemed to have the depth and detail of a primary school essay: “What did you do on your summer holidays, Panayiotis?” – “I took Greece out of the Euro and it all went very well.”About how eight months of opposition seem to have wholly cleansed public memory of four decades worth of sins. Well, this Odyssey couldn’t be without its Lotus-Eaters.
Those who say SYRIZA cannot make a difference should ask the thousands of families that now qualify for free electricity. The thousands of mothers who now have a solidarity credit card to buy food. The children of migrants, born in Greece, who are now recognised as Greek citizens. To them it makes a difference.
I find myself thinking, if Greece weren’t bankrupt… If the same regressive neoliberal old parties, now vying for our vote, were governing the country in perfect circumstances, where money was abundant… What would they be doing?
To them the memorandum is convenient cover. To Tsipras it is a – perhaps insurmountable – obstacle. They are not the same. They couldn’t be more different.
They have Amygdaleza, we have Eleonas. Fear versus hope. That is the only, the giant difference.
