Fas­cism comes in many guises

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Fas­cism can be man­i­fested in a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent ways. One of them is the per­sis­tence of cer­tain groups of hooli­gans who use vi­o­lence against any­one who hap­pens to dis­agree with them and their opin­ions. No one es­capes from the kind of fas­cism, which changes its ide­o­log­i­cal cloak to fit the cir­cum­stances. This is how peo­ple have ended up be­ing beaten up in the mid­dle of the street and me­dia of­fices have be­come the tar­gets of ar­son at­tacks, while en­tire city neigh­bor­hoods have turned into places where law­less­ness reigns supreme. While this kind of phe­nom­e­non is far from new, it has taken on an un­con­trol­lable di­men­sion as of late. Ev­ery­one, the coun­try’s po­lit­i­cal par­ties, jus­tice sys­tem and so­ci­ety, must do their bit to put an end to this phe­nom­e­non, which has spi­raled out of con­trol, in a de­ci­sive man­ner. In this case, it has noth­ing to do with ide­olo­gies and ev­ery­thing to do with common crim­i­nals.
