What is on stake, in Greece?

Civilization, has to do with reason; has to do with nonviolence; has to do with Democracy; and has to do with education.

At the same time, reason, nonviolence, Democracy and education presuppose transparency.

And finally, transparency presuppose both justice, as well as, meta-justice.

Violence as "the intentional use of physical force or power, threatened or actual, against oneself, another person, or against a group or community, which either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting in injury, death, psychological harm, maldevelopment, or deprivation", but acknowledges that the inclusion of "the use of power" in its definition expands on the conventional meaning of the word. This definition associates intentionality with the committing of the act itself, irrespective of the outcome it produces. However, generally, anything that is turbulent or excited in an injurious, damaging or destructive way, or presenting risk accordingly, may be described as violent or as occurring violently, even if not signifying violence (by a person and against a person). [wiki]

And meta-violence is the intentional use of instrumental means against another person, or against a group or community, which either results in or has a high likelihood of resulting the involuntary manifestation of violence on behalf of that person, or that group or that community.

If crime is unjust violence, then, the fluency of a society to treat the crimes in such a way that society may retain hers access to hers past, is called justice.

And if meta-crime is mere meta-violence, then, the fluency of a society to treat the meta-crimes in such a way that society may retain hers access with hers past is called meta-justice.

Currently, the total of the international relationships and the total of the Nations are completely lacking of meta-justice systems. For this reason, our human kind suffers from enormous injustice, while, the past, in general, may tend to become covered with, literary, a veil of opacity.

Life under enormous injustice and which is unable to evolve due to having adapted an unnatural static perspective of time, is the definition of cultural decadence.

For paving the way towards civilization, we need a creative, peaceful and just method to establish formal institutions of meta-justice. And for linguistic and cultural reasons, I believe that, such a method, most probably, can become invented and successfully applied, in Greece.

On December 25th, 2014, legislative elections are going to take place, in Greece.

Both domestic, as well as, international mass media have been systematically focusing exclusively upon two political parties: Nea Dimokratia and SYRIZA.

Those two political parties have been intermittently, systematically and exclusively devoted on expressing a political reasoning which has to do with negative material consequences, while avoiding to mention the related systemic root causes.

At the same time, in Greece, there is a political potential which, colonial influences have systematically marginalized due to the traditional colonial protocols.

This marginalized political potential, by embodying simultaneously, the appropriate linguistic, cultural and ethical means, is willing and also, it may be able to resolve the meta-justice issue, provided that it will be allowed to participate in the forthcoming elections.

In our days, there are Nations which may exercise economic influence upon other Nations. This influence may cause fear to both groups of Nations, though for different reasons. But still, people who live their precious lives frightened, may enjoy only a small portion of their discrete and collective creativity. And this shortage of creativity is one of the root causes for their Nations' economic non-viability. Finally, as history very well teaches us, economic non-viability is one of the route causes of meta-violence.

For the above reasons and up to a certain degree, I believe that, in Greece, our common civilization is on stake.
