Po­lit­i­cal hooli­gan­ism

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Mem­bers of the coun­try’s main op­po­si­tion who have le­git­i­mate lib­eral views are few and far be­tween. Is it any won­der, then, that those few are of­ten at­tacked on the in­ter­net for their opinions or the way in which they ex­press their views on cer­tain is­sues? Those who cur­rently gov­ern us pre­fer to push di­a­logue and civil dis­course aside and in­stead choose to ex­press them­selves us­ing po­lit­i­cal hooli­gan­ism in the name of the sa­cred anti-mem­o­ran­dum strug­gle. The so­lu­tion is not to have the op­po­si­tion mimic this same kind of thug­gery in its re­sponses, whether these be di­rected at the gov­ern­ment or within its own ranks. Hav­ing a strong and dy­namic po­lit­i­cal op­po­si­tion is im­per­a­tive for our coun­try to move for­ward and get out of the rut it’s been in. The main op­po­si­tion could do with­out the in­ter­nal can­ni­bal­ism against those who have proven them­selves by fight­ing to put us on the right path.
