Technocratisme Destroys the World
Greece is technically a democracy in which the legislators do their utmost to represent their constituents views and legislators understanding of their constituents best interests. The recent austerity measures passed by the Greek Parliament do neither. What is especially troubling, to me in any event, was the decision by party leader in Greece to expel legislators who voted no. The austerity measures are not be seen as obviously right and principled disagreement is not only possible but necessary if democracy is to thrive in the face of technocratisme and neoliberalism run amok.
