We live in a difficult period of Greek history. The recession, unemployment, over-taxation and insecurity have touched almost everyone and many have crashed. Within this bleak climate debate on rights sounds unrealistic, exaggerated, even disorienting. But we have to do because we hope that even in these circumstances, not enough for us to survive. My initial idea was to list the various major outstanding issues are: (a) not yet recognized or even the cohabitation for same-sex couples. (B) The unjustified police violence and illegal conduct law enforcement does not seem to be limited despite the international vilification. (C) will continue to issue judicial decisions limiting rights, unacceptable for a state law. (D) The way the Constitution has been abused by government and opposition leads to greater impairment of institutions. At the same time there is a serious debate on institutional reform which include the Constitution – the fireworks are not serious discussion. (E) The weakest groups (migrants, Roma) do not enjoy basic human rights. (F) Freedom of speech receive severe limitations at every opportunity. (G) Academic freedom continues to be under the constant threat of violence from fascist squads of different colors. (H) The racism prevalent in public discourse. An impressive way to coexist the medieval type Semitism with loathing for Muslim immigrants and antidytikismos the rejection of multiculturalism. We have so surreal phenomenon to be the country with the most anti-Semites and the only EU capital without a mosque (i) The debate on the separation of State and Church has been the Greek calends. (J) The debate on the rights of minorities (especially the right to self) still amounts to treason. stagnation however is not the only problem. In many cases we have a serious setback. There are ludicrous and serious cases. On ludicrous will integrate the call to criminalize speech and historical research by members of the Greek Parliament. The problem here is not only the authoritarian way of thinking or demagogic address the issues but mainly the unpardonable carelessness. Serious cases will be necessary to incorporate a net regression case: if it’s been eight years of the enactment of the law establishing an area cremation has not yet created or a crematorium. The mayors of Athens and Thessaloniki, in a joint statement, accused the “invisible forces” but these forces are visible to all. This “holy” alliance overspending lords of local government, bureaucracy and lazy skotadiston bishops. This alliance has prevented, delayed or discourage any effort. The government tabled another amendment a few days ago which attempts to resolve some of the problems. I do not know how many of the legal and bureaucratic problems will be overcome. Political problems are not solved but accumulating laws and regulations but with political will and reform estrus. But these are deficient. problem is much more important than it initially seems. It is not just the fate of the body a few hundred “eccentric fellow citizens.” These absurdly bureaucratic obstacles challenge a precious human right, the right to manage your body, even after death. A right is already very limited, as society claims much power over your body (especially if you’re female), controlling, adjusting it, castrating this need. Moreover, the example of the adventure of incinerator is another symptom of embracing the ecclesiastical power policy (all powers and all promising). It is a good example of the domination of Counter, sad cooperation obsession left, right and kotzampasismou apoideologikopoiimenis atavistic but cult status quo. How to beat this antimetarrythmistiko block when it is so powerful politically, when his weapons are ignorance and dogmatism and when his victims with the support Pavlov way? The slow but steady disintegration should be accelerated in any way. It is the duty of all of us. * Aristides Hatzis is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Theory of Law Institutions, University of Athens. Here you will find the article (as published in News )
