by system failure
It's kind of hard someone to say that some things are random. The last days we witnessed rapid developments and events in Greece that, if combined, a lot can be explained.
Arrests of Golden Dawn members: why now?
German elections gave the opportunity to the representatives of neoliberal dictatorship in Greece, to restrict the neo-nazi monster that threatened to break out of their control. The reelection of Merkel, secures the expansion of destructive neoliberal policies across Europe in favor of bankers and big capital and the nazist monster can go back to the closet, until further instructions.
Although already mentioned briefly, in a previous article, what the representatives of the neoliberal dictatorship in Greece managed to achieve (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2013/09/greece-when-neoliberal-dictatorship.html), the list of their "achievements", could be expanded. Specifically:
Within less than a month, all settled as they wanted. They knew Golden Dawn, they expected such a murder. As long as GD was murdering immigrants and doing the "dirty work", was quite useful. Just after this political assassination of a Greek citizen, the "local representatives" found the excuse to cut the unacceptably high rates of GD and restore them to a more "manageable" level of about 7%. Small enough to be able to control GD and big enough to be a threat against "democratic stability" to spread the fear again if necessary and a factor of breaking the anti-Memorandum electoral tank, which contains various ideological colors. It was not very difficult, as they control banks, media, poll companies, the government itself.
In particular, Samaras government tries to fix its image after the fiasco of ERT, as attempts to prove that keeps equal distance from everyone, without discrimination, and has the same determination in each case to act summarily.
It's not easy for someone to believe this, as Golden Dawn acted undisturbed so far under the tolerance of the police. The already classic argument made ad nauseam by the mainstream media as an excuse for the Greek justice and police inaction, that they were trying to connect all data to secure criminal charges, looks silly, if one consider that for other - perhaps less difficult - cases, the delay of the Greek authorities is characteristic.
The Greek Minister of Public Order and Citizen Protection, Nikos Dendias, this time moved very fast and the finding of the Greek Supreme Court, composed in record time, include details of action, structure, and even the past and the course of the neo-nazi organization through time. How did they do it now so well, so fast, to "tie" the data after the assassination of Fyssas? Everything indicates that they had the necessary proofs long ago, but waited for the right moment. Besides, this was also confirmed, substantially, by the former coalition government partner and leader of the Leftist party Dimokratiki Aristera, Fotis Kouvelis, who said that some New Democracy and governmental officials, were playing with the Golden Dawn agenda.
Also, Samaras government attempts to get rid of the stigma of ideological relation with the fascist far Right, while in the government participate some MPs from Nea Dimokratia, with a far Right past, and while the government closed the Public National Broadcaster through a coup d'etat type action.
Some possible scenarios
The representatives of neoliberal dictatorship in Greece, as managed to restrict Golden Dawn to the desirable limits, are now free to focus on the problem called “new possible rise of the Left”.
During the next period, we should probably expect new successive polls between increased propaganda against the "dangerous", for their plans, Left and certainly against SYRIZA, the Leftist opposition party, which threatens the first position for the Memorandum block in future possible elections.
Neoliberal dictatorship, does not afraid of course, solely, a possible rise of the Left during future elections in Greece. What fears most is, whether the domino theory could be verified, through the general rise of the Left in Europe. A domino which can be started from Greece and could be expanded initially in the eurozone periphery, putting at risk its plans.
If the polls show a new rise of the Left beyond "manageable limits", new provocation operations should not be unexpected, by the para-state mechanisms, which the systemic establishment activates, when its sovereignty is threatened. Besides, the ground is properly prepared through the so-called "theory of two extremes", which equalize the neo-nazist far Right with the radical Left. This theory is reproduced ad nauseam by the mainstream media and by systemic mouthpieces. Although this theory is soundly baseless, can be particularly effective if combined with successful provocation operations.
As neoliberal dictatorship is ruthless, behaves essentially like the leadership of a mafia organization, dropping out some of its members when they are not useful anymore, as did with the Golden Dawn.
Thus, another possible scenario is to drop out some "useful politicians" who serve its interests through the participation in the government, but now do not need them. The bell rings for the Socialist coalition party leader, Evangelos Venizelos, and probably for some others since it is almost certain that, there is evidence for their responsibility about handling the case of the Lagarde list, which incidentally has been temporarily forgotten. Maybe it's time, some evidence to be revealed about the case "incidentally".
From a possible sacrifice of Venizelos, there will be additional profits. First, the image of the neoliberal Right (i.e. essentially the Nea Dimokratia main government coalition party), will further improve. This would be the most desirable development, since Nea Dimokratia is the most authentic and most definite representative of the neoliberal dictatorship in Greece in a political level, giving the impression that does not hesitate to give up even its own partners for the sake of justice, in order to balance the new harsh measures that will come under the orders of Merkel and the Troika lenders, and give a rising sense of justice for citizens.
Therefore, Nea Dimokratia will possibly win the trust of even more far Right voters who, along with new "cleaning" operations of illegal immigrants, could be persuaded for the intentions of the party, and allow it to continue undisturbed the completion of the Greek experiment and pave the way for its expansion throughout Europe.
