End­ing the de­cline

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greek so­ci­ety is won­der­ing when the dis­grace­ful de­struc­tion that is wrought in­side the coun­try’s univer­si­ties ev­ery time we com­mem­o­rate some an­niver­sary or other will fi­nally come to an end. We see the same dis­heart­en­ing scenes play­ing out on ev­ery oc­ca­sion, with van­dals and mis­guided young­sters par­tic­i­pat­ing in the de­struc­tion, along with the usual sus­pects, with­out any­thing ever chang­ing, with­out any ac­tion be­ing taken to ad­dress the prob­lem. Un­for­tu­nately, ev­ery time this hap­pens, it is the Greek tax­pay­ers that have to bear the cost of the dam­age, while the long-suf­fer­ing res­i­dents and hap­less busi­ness owners in the dis­tricts where the clashes take place also suf­fer the con­se­quences of these un­ac­cept­able out­breaks of law­less­ness. These im­ages of de­cline which have be­come a com­mon sight must at some point be brought to an end.
