To Mr. Samaras, candidate for ruling Greece

Mr. Samaras,
  • you are aware of the problem with Skopje; they want to build their own myth and you did your best in the 90s to make them as intransigent as they could possibly be; a more wise management would have rather bought them off. You preferred to challenge as if they were the most vicious enemy of Greece. A compromise could have been reached, some north Macedonia or something similar.
"Tell me who you choose as your opponent and I tell you who you are". You chose the Skopjans as your opponent. You can therefore only be an insignificant politician. Like those US conservatives who want to combat socialism and refer to Greece (!) and its abundant communists (!!). But they stay silent about Sweden.
  • you are aware of the problem with Greece; your party did its best along with PASOK to ruin the country. Now, however, there are some voices in ruling PASOK calling for rational behavior. Instead, you go around Europe and preach a gospel nobody will understand. Arn' t you fed up to be looked at as a strange being speaking incomprehensible jargon? Is the whole of Europe confused? Why nobody can' t understand you? Why are you the only who has seen the "Truth"?
Mr Samaras, you have seen no truth. You just want to get hold of power; it is so simple. In such a critical moment there are just a handful of patriots in the ruling PASOK. You know this; and you know their names:

Mosialos, Diampantopoulou, Floridis, Loverdos, and a few more.

A great lot in PASOK and, alas!, almost all of your ridiculous stock in your absurd, pseudo- liberal party are selfish idiots, that built a client state to serve their interests and are now siding with every criminal and fascist trade unionist who does not give a damn for public health (see the garbage collection issue) or continuously insists to take action on our behalf (see the idiot / fascist Photopoulos, manager of the electric company) to save us from the EU, and beyond, evil forces that exist in their greedy, or sick, or sick because of greed, minds.

You know Mrs. Delta. Mr. Samaras, or not? Of course you do! Mrs. Delta shot a bullet through her head because she could not watch the Nazis marching in her country.

Is it so difficult for you at this last moment to side with the few patriot forces? Mr. Papandreou will be forgiven for his ugly lies like the famous "There is a lot of money".

You will NOT and NEVER be forgiven!

NB: I saw, on the TV, your consultant, Mr. Lazaridis. What a waste, what a pity. I remember Chrissanthos from our young, revolt days, when he was a most inspirational figure of Rigas Ferraios, B' Panelladiki. His texts, those days, where full of passion and radical ideas.

I felt very sad in the first 10 minutes and fell asleep out of boredom.


About my friend Thakis

Thakis is a friend, a skilful engineer and an innovative, investigative and alert and not sleepy academic. I could easily place him among the most exceptional people I' ve ever met. Incidentally, I have great respect for his father, who also followed an exceptional career.

Thakis is a person that in any western society would be considered a unique human asset.In Greece however, he recently told me he is considering immigrating to Australia. It broke my spirit; I reflected on it several times later in the most depressive mood.

All sorts of colourful idiots parade day and night on streets and TV channels, speaking nonsense, breaking our nerves and making our lives miserable. But Thakis, with all these exceptional capacities, recently married with a new born in hands, needs consider immigrating to Australia. This is Greece, in year 2011.

I don't think the country can go much far Thakis. But, as an exception to my style, I' ll issue a small piece of advice, indirectly, via my personal paradigm.

I will go nowhere Thakis! Τα καράβια μου καίω! I will stay here to reclaim the country from its occupation army and use any tiny little opportunity to push it out of the irrational spiral it has been pushed into.
