Wine and resins

look

The politics that lead the country today, which came to power through these methods, are left-wing in ideas, but extremely unequal to social demand and paranoid about independent institutions. If the old policy that we have left behind was characterized as deforming democracy, the new policy (of VV) would have been named as malicious in relation to democracy, since it does not accept the independence of other powers , declares them immoral and condemns them through propaganda

Resin is goat or lamb skin processed as a vessel to store water or wine. In the tradition of nomadic peoples, there was a rule on how to store wine in resin; the newly made, new wine was never put into the old vessels, i.e. into the resins that had held the wine of the previous year, as the strength of the new wine and its ferments would tear them apart. New wine in new resin.

I have never seen resin, much less drunk wine from it, but I brought it here for symbolic reasons. To parallel a new social circumstance we are facing. Ratzinger calls the symbol the here side, compatible with the real or better said with the ideal, but which is built with our tools.

Resins are methods and wine is politics! There are those who do not accept changing the method, because it once gave results. There are also those who do not know another method, due to ignorance, and thus kill the dialectical plan of politics. The new politics (in terms of age and methods) has for about fifteen years been shaking the foundations of the old politics through methods radically different from those used until then. Building images through propaganda engineering; the defamation of truths through the reversal of figures; populism; hate speech and the recitation of easy solutions to complex problems are some of the instruments that the methodological corpus of new politics has used among us and continues to do so even now.

The politics that lead the country today, which came to power through these methods, are left-wing in ideas, but extremely unequal to social demand and paranoid about independent institutions. If the old policy, which we have left behind, was characterized as deforming democracy, the new policy (of VV) would have been named as malicious in relation to democracy, since it does not accept the independence of the powers others, declares them immoral and condemns them through propaganda. The old policy was primitive and often brutal, this new one in power is delusional and anti-capitalist!

In order to incapacitate any opposing mind, VV has chosen hypernationalism as an intoxicating method, which closes the glorious cycle of national "dignity" and deifies it, while on the other hand it tightens the hook in the throat of freedom of speech and opposition.

Can a transformation of social demands and the need for progress, but also the hope of the new policy be stopped, by politically defeating VV, but without the old policy and its methods!? Of course yes! Since the old politics cannot adopt the new methods, and consequently not even improve them, it is destined to be suffocated by the chaotic momentum that VV produces with its methods. We need new wine in new resin. For this to happen, the political echelon that stands in front of today's power must deconstruct many of the mechanisms by which it builds the cause, but also represents it: increasing the independence of the political elite in policy-making from bureaucratic party mechanisms; increasing the speed of the vector in conveying information to the citizen and capillarizing that information as much as possible; being freed from the complex of keeping the militant voter at all costs; representing as many community causes as possible; deflating the nationalist balloon without equivocation. And many other methodological innovations that connected the cause, the community and the Republic, as a self-generating triangle.

The people of Kosovo, the Kosovar society does not go back to its goals, which is to close one policy-making cycle and open another, to give impetus to development. The problem lies in the offers in front of her. VV has managed to catch the nerve of the social demand. In my opinion, she is completely far from materializing the social demand, on the contrary, if she continues to stay in power, she will become the most dangerous hostage taker of the future of the Republic. But it does not depend only on her. It will also depend on the political treasure that stands in front of her and the adoption that he will do! Otherwise, the company will find new partners.
