The separation of powers.
Here they play out another act of the tragicomedy,
which has been called "democracy".
Supposedly there is a basic principle which
is called "separation of powers".
For the system to function
without one person
or a small group
having all the power, as in a dictatorship,
there are three independent powers:
<![if !supportLists]>• <![endif]>The "legislative" (Parliament), who pass the laws,
<![if !supportLists]>• <![endif]>the "executive" ( the government), who apply the laws, and
<![if !supportLists]>• <![endif]>the "judicial" (the courts) who ensure that the laws are kept.
is controlled by the parliament
(by the deputies).
The legal system
controls the other two powers.
But here the
deputies and ministers are the
same people, and maybe even the legal system
can be their associates openly or covertly.
The one, who by offering bribes
(in Greece this is
job in the Civil Service)
(usually of reducing
increasing salaries and pensions)
succeeded in persuading or deceiving the voters
to elect him as deputy,
then becomes a minister
and controls ...
The ones, who make
who rule, aren't the people, they are
the politicians and the parties.
The system is called "party governance".
And the funny thing is
that we praise
this fabrication as the
highest achievement of our civilisation
and use it as an excuse for
the devastation of a country:
"We had to
destroy this country with bombs, an
invasion and an embargo, so that afterwards we
could give the survivors the benefits of democracy".
