A statement of the obvious perhaps, but something that is important to note amidst the financial crisis that is engulfing Europe and tearing Greece apart:
In all the commentary in the media the only views and demands being reported are those of the politicians. The desperation of the political class’ efforts to deny the public a voice in how their money is used in the political class’ power games, should be both disturbing and instructive.
If ever we needed any more clear a demonstration of how far removed from democratic accountability our public servants have escaped, this is it.
Unless the public starts to take back the power that has been stolen from us we will never experience democracy again. It is that serious.
