Over the past two years, the quality of politicians has deteriorated

If, however, we align these two ideologies based on the assumption that the violence they use is the same, we will have to accept that their ideas are also the same. But the core of Nazism is hatred whereas of the ideology of the left, it is the society of personal and social emancipation. Aligning these different ideas is like aligning the ideas of the entire left with the extreme left and the extreme right. This is not right because it leads to the debasement of the values ​​of the left, which have nothing to do with class hatred, as some left-wing representatives claim or with racial hatred, as Golden Dawn and other neo-Nazi bands perceive.

I'm afraid that if we align them we could lose the demand for personal and social liberation of societies. And if this happens, then we will not be able to talk about democracy. The conservative views of the right are necessary to preserve the values, traditions, etc., which are very serious as well as the left’s demand for social change. If they do not exist, pluralism and democracy will be lost.

Then, there will be no obstacle to aligning the left and the right, or to challenge the need for democracy. The conceptual principles of these two political spaces are different and we should not make such comparisons.

Could this phenomenon cause a civil conflict?

No, I do not think so. This is too extreme and I do not think things could get to such a point. There could be conflicts and violence, but I do not think that it could cause a civil war in the common sense. The biggest threat to Greece is the exit from the eurozone and this could actually cause a civil war.

This should be clear to all who decide on the future of Europe at present.
