Everything is not OK

What we are experiencing these days is the epitome of an axiom that has emerged since the restoration of democracy in Greece, whereby everything is allowed.

The phenomenon of sit-ins and occupations at public buildings by anti-establishment groups has taken on new and unprecedented proportions.

Meanwhile, the minister whose responsibility it is to respond to such actions seems incapable of getting a grip on the situation, obviously because other government officials think it all very normal and natural.

Greece’s domestic security will be sorely tested, however, if this indecision and torpor continues.

The prime minister needs to start governing the country and making the hard, even tough, decisions that are needed. This is what his position dictates and what the people expect of him. If he doesn’t, it is very likely that he will soon be faced with an extremely dangerous and chaotic situation.
