The right con­sen­sus

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

There is a grow­ing mass of cit­i­zens who are an­gry with the gov­ern­ment. They are fed up with work­ing hard and be­ing beaten down by un­rea­son­able taxes, of get­ting in­volved in Kafkaesque ad­ven­tures with tax au­thor­i­ties and then see­ing their hard-earned money be­ing thrown into a black hole of waste and mis­man­age­ment. Many of these peo­ple voted for SYRIZA be­cause they be­lieved its prom­ises. Now they feel cheated and are look­ing around for al­ter­na­tives. They un­der­stand the need for na­tional con­sen­sus on the ma­jor is­sues that will help turn the coun­try around, that will strengthen its foun­da­tions in terms of the pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion, of ed­u­ca­tion, justice, etc. These peo­ple want and need to see such a con­sen­sus, but they do not want it be­tween those forces that view con­sen­sus as yet an­other op­por­tu­nity to ad­ver­tise them­selves or those who ap­pear to adopt it only af­ter hav­ing be­trayed the toil of the peo­ple in or­der to put them­selves in a cushy po­si­tion.
