Mice and politicians

Mice and politicians

The PD ship has taken on water for a long time. This is no longer a secret. The secret was what her political rats would do: here or there, with the "father" or with the "son", or even the son will kneel to the father. We are seeing this with its deputies, who went after the seal, when it was given to the Reestablishment. So they abandoned the cause they had been fighting for for three years. They looked at their political career and future in the party seal. Indeed, they should be sacrificed for the true democratic cause and principles, on which a political party is built and functions, and not just for formal issues of its symbols. The seal of the party, the logo, the identity of the party itself are matters of technicality and legal procedures. Many of them can add a little more money to the party's coffers, increase to a certain extent the influence of the political subject, increase the premises for a little more electorates, etc. But, this is not the solution in the conditions of the deep crisis in which the Albanian opposition is. The symbols of a party are not political, theoretical and philosophical causes from which a party should be guided. It is the political programs, the fighting spirit and the democratic cause that define the physiognomy of the party. Both with a seal and without it, the parties that emerged from the DP continue to experience a deep crisis of identity, moral values, politics and programs, trust and electoral credibility. Returning the seal to the Reestablishment does not save it from the precipice it is sinking into more and more every day. Whoever thinks that the seal of the court is her salvation is gravely mistaken. Some soothsayers, veterans forcibly evicted from the DP, who call receiving the seal a great success, as a way out of the crisis, as a rebirth of the Re-establishment, become ridiculous. Even, excited to the point of intoxication, they call the leader of the party, a prisoner at home, a savior, trusting him with the direction of the Albanian opposition. So, they trust the destroyer and gravedigger of the Albanian opposition with its revival. They call the return of the seal to Reestablishment a success, while nothing is said about the black mark that Berisha received from the English court. Do these Pehlivans understand the real causes of the breakup of the DP, the conditions and circumstances that led to its splitting into several other parties, the freezing of relations with the international factor, even with the right-wing European parties, the deep cooling with the electorate , the declaration of Sali Berisha "non grata" by the USA and Great Britain, as well as his legal punishment, as unwanted and a danger to their countries? The big split in the Albanian opposition front did not come from the PD losing its seal, but from Sali Berisha's significant corruption, his undermining of democracy and the deployment of the state in the service of his family's enrichment. He has been and remains the cause of the crises of the Albanian opposition. The seal of the DP can be removed and given back to the DP, this is a court case, but the Sali Berisha phenomenon remains a potential growing danger for the democracy of the Albanians of the DP.He built a thuggish and violent state against freedom, human rights, and state institutions. He put all the powers under complete control, surveilling and hitting with barbaric methods the political opponents, different alternatives, until he waged war against his people, when he used the north of the country as an army to suppress the south of the country. He cunningly changed the country's geopolitical map, axes and strategic alliances, when he abandoned the democratic west and joined the autocratic east. The democratic orientation brought by the political movement in the 90s, he gradually diverted towards anarchy and the totalitarian state. He defiled free competition and equal opportunities with corruption and traffic monopoly, replaced honest work with theft and robbery of public property, etc. Can the seal returned by the court to this party erase or soften the crimes committed by Sali Berisha? No way. The seal restored to Refoundation has no magical power to baptize a criminal into an angel. The game with the seal may lie to some poor people in his political yard, who were left crossing the rainbow, as in one party to another, from Reestablishment to PD and vice versa. They do all these acrobatics for personal gain, for a place on the list of future deputies, to escape court cases open to them, for a little power to develop corruption and theft as before. Nothing is done by them for the dignity of the DP, for saving it from the miserable situation it is in. Such decisions from one party to another have been an old disease of Albanian political pluralism, taking the form of corruption and vote buying. But the recent movements of some DP deputies from the wind have enriched the Albanian mood. However, this phenomenon should not be seen only in black. Where better than in these political slips and acrobatics will the real deputies with personality be distinguished from those who have turned into kamikazes of the president. Those who have completed the school of democracy and those who have completed the school of Berishism, one with that of banditry and crime. Which of them are free in their thoughts and attitudes and which remain slaves to the slave owner they belong to. Those who hold freedom sacred and those who call slavery freedom, to steal, kill and rob, according to the canons of their leader. It is unfortunate that this category of politicians have put themselves at the service of the economic and political prostitution of their spiritual father, Sali Berisha. The Alibeja case shows that dignity still exists. The truth is that rats feel the danger and try to escape the disaster, while this type of politicians, when they feel the danger, make all efforts to lead their political subject towards the disaster.From time to time they have received signals from the democratic world that there is also the option of declaring them an undesirable organization that violates democracy in the country. They continue their pehlivanism. The world is watching.
