Politics and the mass media should be subject to closer inspection under the same prism. Any attempt to distinguish between these two forms of authority will only prove futile. It is very well illustrated in Sunday’s editorials, how the guide line of tv news consist a key element to the outcome of a very crucial debate for years to come. It is also clear that the real issues of this debate are not connected to social politics, but orbit around the grand economic interests of big players, in both domestic and foreign enterprise. Foreign intervention was well accepted by none, yet it looks like it is clearing the path for high rollers, presenting a unique opportunity to pull the strains of all political leaders, except of course for the left wing. They lost every single benefit with wrongful communication strategies, employing the good old leftist lines that provide a modest 3-5% among voters. An overall scenery of imbalance is shaping up, leaving interest of the real society, real citizens, unguarded looking like easy prey to speculators around the globe.
All hope now seems to lie on independent movements outside party guide lines and restrictions, striking an immediate effect in the heart of society. One could make the case that real creative forces are finally standing up to the challenge presented, which by the way is not the one publicized by mainstream media. Debt control is clearly not our problem and neither is inflation. We seem to realize that reforming the state can only be achieved via reforming of the self. Acquiring at last a civic culture that is sustainable is an effort for which each individual should do his-hers part. The century of the self draws its last breath, freeing the space needed for a new kind of perception to emerge. The struggle for sovereignty is not imminent. It has already began and sooner or later everyone will have to stand on their side of the line.
To sum up, this is not a David and Goliath battle nor is there a predetermined outcome. Time to place your bet !
