The greatest enemy of our democracy, our people, and our homeland is the neoliberal-modernizing bloc of political powers that has dominated politics since the 1990s.
It is a clique that bears a resemblance to a religious sect and, although at a social level it only corresponds to minority castes of the parasitic local elite, for more than two decades now it has seized power at all levels, in all its aspects, manifestations and versions.
This political ”cancer” has two main advocates in two political areas, that of the Center-Left and that of the Center-Right: the “chief priest” of corruption Costas Simitis and the “high priest” of the Lignadis case cover-up, Kyriakos Mitsotakis (or rather the whole Mitsotakis family), respectively.
The overwhelming developments of the last few days, coming through a massive wave of rape and child abuse accusations, the scandalous cover-up attempt of the horrific Lignadis case by the Mitsotakis-Mendoni duo, the strenuous attempt of a specific media system and its journalists to sweep under the rag the responsibilities of the disastrous Mitsotakis government, which is possibly responsible even for the disappearance of critical evidence, are, nevertheless, only some superficial indications of the one and only deeper reality:
The neoliberal-modernizing power complex has begun to crumble. As it is being heard, in the following days the upcoming disclosures will be of such magnitude that they will possibly even lead to the fall of the Mitsotakis government, who will go down in history having the stigma of the ”cover-up” prime minister. In the collective consciousness of all the generations to follow, Mitsotakis will go down in history with this horrible and shameful stigma.
The Greek people must open their eyes and ask themselves about the following: When did this powerful system of authority impose itself in the world of arts, a system that today is being accused of engaging in an atrocious circle of sexual harassment, sexual abuse, and child abuse?
Which political-business clique turned specific artists into its ”pets”? What political group do the pedophiles come from? To which political group do those who cover up rape and child abuse cases belong? In which houses did the ones accused of the horrendous acts take refuge, and by which influential lawyers were they given advice and directions?
Who is the “pig” of politics that recently made headlines in the newspaper “Dimokratia”?
This is not a confrontation between the Left and the Right. It is a confrontation between the sane powers of political life and the modernizing – neoliberal mob that scrounges off our homeland and aims at the enslavement of the Greek people in order to achieve its goals, some of which are dictated by supranational systems of economic and political power.
But now, the lies are over!
The sane political powers of the country and especially the Greek people have a unique opportunity, now that mouths have opened, now that the money of the Petsas list can no longer crush the whopping wave of disclosures, now that the panic of the ”political cancer” has been manifested in all its extent and intensity, to end the Simitis – Mitsotakis clique once and for all; a clique that has already destroyed the Greek economy and is desperately trying to protect Lignadis and the likes of him, while preparing to betray the country by handing over half the Aegean Sea to Erdogan.
Soon, the demand for change of the Greek people will rock Maximos Mansion and its current occupants. Paraphrasing an old slogan used by greek voters in past elections: “ Let’s get rid of the cholera!”
