Profli­gacy and dead­lock

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Many young peo­ple voted SYRIZA into power as a means of protest against the way in which the coun­try was be­ing man­aged by the par­ties of the old es­tab­lish­ment. How wrong they turned out to be. Un­der the left­ist-led gov­ern­ment we can see that the old bad habits of in­com­pe­tence, crony­ism and mis­man­age­ment are not only con­tin­u­ing, but get­ting worse. Those in power to­day have not only adopted the worst prac­tices of the past, they have pos­i­tively em­braced them. And they be­lieve they are jus­ti­fied in do­ing so, re­peat­edly point­ing to the sin­ful his­tory of their ri­vals, as if this ab­solves them for their ac­tions to­day. How­ever, this coun­try de­serves bet­ter. It is im­per­a­tive that we get out of this vi­cious cy­cle of profli­gacy that has brought us to the cur­rent dead­lock. If we don’t change our men­tal­ity and con­tinue along the same path, we will find our­selves stuck in an end­less state of cri­sis and stag­na­tion.
