No way out?

The country does not need the kind of division, hatred and extreme populism governing today’s public dialogue.

Greece does not need investigative committees or threats of preliminary judicial committees in the future. All this reinforces a vicious cycle from which there is no way out. This is not the way to exit the crisis, turn the page and change direction. This is the way toward increasingly deeper decay that will lead the country into an absolute quagmire. We urgently need political figures and powers who will demonstrate responsibility and maturity, combined with good management skills.

Citizens cannot expect to nurture any hope that their and their children’s lives will improve with today’s political scene, give or take a few exceptions.

The past has lost its powers of persuasion and is over, while today is beginning to look scary through its combination of fanaticism and amateurism.
