GREECE: Still raging against the dying of the light

  • In 1967 foreign powers, in cahoots with local stooges, used the tanks to overthrow Greek democracy.
  • In 2015 foreign powers, in cahoots with local stooges, used the banks to overthrow the Greek government.
  • In 1967 democracy’s defenders were in disarray and the prisons, the death squads, and the torturers were working overtime.
  • In 2015 none of that is necessary as the oligarchy’s media do all the work on behalf of democracy’s enemies.

Thankfully, 

  • Unlike in 1967, in 2015 there is a democratic force, Syriza, whose political capital remains intact, its standing with the people firmer than ever, and its young leader, Alexis Tsipras, the only legitimate PM.
  • On 25th January 2015, the day voters defied Europe’s failed policies to elect Syriza, I wrote that the Greek people stopped going gently into the night.
  • For five months, our government raged against the dying of the light.
  • We are still at it.
  • Only now we are calling upon all Europeans to rage with us so that the flickering light does not dim everywhere, from Athens to Dublin, from Helsinki to Lisbon.

  • Still no article to rage against the dying of the light. Second thoughts, maybe?. 1967 analogy stretched too far? Timing of the “government overthrow” in 2015 difficult to pinpoint? “democracy’s defenders were in disarray and the prisons, the death squads, and the torturers were working overtime” Invalid comparison of two oppressive regimes? Which is more fascist than the other? Which has caused more deaths, more prolonged torture, more horror and despair in seven years?

    And more importantly, who should be held accountable for the Dying of the Light? DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO THEIR GOOD NIGHT… their quiet, calm, opulent, self-satisfied sleep, until some remorse starts raging against the dying of their limelight. D.
