Safe­guard­ing the mil­i­tary

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Union­ism has no place in the armed forces and can have a de­struc­tive ef­fect. There are cer­tain sen­si­tive ar­eas of the broader pub­lic sec­tor that need to be kept apart from the in­flu­ence of po­lit­i­cal par­ties and the ten­sions of union­ism. The Greek state has al­ready paid a hefty price for this scourge, with the most bla­tant ex­am­ple be­ing the se­cret ser­vices, which went through a pe­riod of com­plete tur­moil be­cause of po­lit­i­cal in­ter­ven­tions and in­flu­ence. This is the sort of bad de­ci­sion that can be taken in an in­stant but has ef­fects that can last for decades.
