Greece’s regime is day by day transforming with a slow but steady rhythm, to the next “Weimar Republic” according to the British Financial Times, concerning Greece’s situation.
Aristides Hatzis, Associate Professor of University of Athens, in a detailed article in Financial Times, mentions that the current formation of the Greek Parliament is the worst in Greece’s modern history.
Neo-Nazis, right MPs that support paranoid theories of conspiracy, and populists constitute the amalgam of the Greek Parliament, writes Aristides Hatzis. At the same time, he added that the failure of the Greek government to manage a series of matters effectively, causes an even bigger disappointment to Greek people.
In his article, the fact that basic reforms have either failed or have never been applied is criticized. Even the reforms which have been voted by the majority of the Greek Parliament are fragile and the ministers responsible for their application don’t have the political courage to suffer the political cost that their actions will have.
In the article, Aristides Hatzis also criticizes the stance of the opposition parties. They are irresponsible as their arguments are characterized by populism.
The present political situation causes disappointment and frustration to Greeks, leading the majority of them to depression. Under these circumstances, the phenomenon of fascism rises, underlines FT’s article.
The article also underlines, that Greek voters did not hesitate to vote in favor of a neo-Nazi party, (Golden Dawn) giving them the right to have a strong representation in the Greek Parliament. They voted for them even though they knew their violent nature and their illegitimate activities.
