Ένα ναρκοθετημένο δημοψήφισμα.
Να σώσουμε ότι σώζεται.
Της Βασιλικής Σιούτη
Το δημοψήφισμα της Κυριακής είναι μία διαδικασία ναρκοθετημένη εκ των προτέρων, στην οποία ο ελληνικός λαός καλείται να απαντήσει εάν εγκρίνει κάτι με το οποίο δεν συμφωνεί ή εάν το απορρίπτει για να πάει σε κάτι που δεν γνωρίζει. Είναι ένα δημοψήφισμα στο οποίο οι επιλογές είναι στην πραγματικότητα μη επιλογές και είναι πραγματικά πολύ θλιβερό το πώς φτάσαμε εδώ μετά από μία σειρά οδυνηρών υποχωρήσεων και λαθών χωρίς κανείς να πατήσει εγκαίρως φρένο.
Ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ πήρε ξεκάθαρη εντολή στις 25 Ιανουαρίου να τερματίσει τα μνημόνια και την πολιτική λιτότητας που τσάκισε τα φτωχότερα στρώματα της ελληνικής κοινωνίας. Η ηγεσία του κόμματος δεσμεύτηκε προεκλογικά ότι αυτό μπορεί να το καταφέρει εντός της Ευρωζώνης. Τόσο από αριστερά όσο και από δεξιά, παρότι από εντελώς διαφορετική σκοπιά, του έλεγαν ότι δεν μπορεί να τερματίσει τα μνημόνια εντός της Ευρωζώνης γιατί πολύ απλά…

I read your “40 questions for Christians now waving rainbow flags” with interest. I don’t have a rainbow-themed avatar, but I have a good deal in common with those you were addressing.
Besides, as you say, it’s always good to “slow down and think.”
You describe your questions as “sincere, if pointed.” I took this to mean they were designed to elicit a response. So respond I have. As much as possible, I’ve tried to follow your lead—offering what I hope are sincere, if occasionally pointed, replies.
A few of your questions seemed redundant (e.g. #2 and #3, #29 and #30). In such cases I did not bother to repeat my answers. For you, each question may have had its own nuance, but I felt the same answers applied, at least broadly speaking.
One last point before diving in… I think I speak for a lot of us when I say that what we’re cheering for is definitely not

I like to blame the fact that I avoid conflict on the fact I am from Canada. I mean we waited 100 years to ask to become a country, and even then it was basically like we moved out of our parents house and into the house right next door. Whatever the reason, I don’t like conflict. I hate Facebook arguments. As a result, I tend to delete people instead of engaging in a debate. The hide button is a wonderful invention. Since the Supreme Court decision on Friday, I have said a quiet goodbye to many efy and girls camp acquaintances. However, there are people who I am too close with to delete or hide. And too many people saying things to ignore them all. But I still hate conflict, so I have written a list of things I would say to them were I born south of the…

Port Elizabeth locals have a certain way about them, we like to call it our PE-ness. Yes, you heard correctly! And if you can relate to more than 5 of these signs, you definitely have some PE-ness in you 😉
1.YOU NEVER CALL IT ‘NELSON MANDELA BAY’
The only people who call it “Nelson Mandela Bay” aren’t from Port Elizabeth or are forced to call it that because they work for the municipality’s tourism department. Nelson Mandela Bay just doesn’t roll off the tongue of a PE local. It would be like calling your mom by her first name. Cringe!
2. YOU ARE CONSTANTLY TELLING PEOPLE FROM OTHER CITIES TO CHILL!
Whether you actually say it to them or think it, it’s a prominent word in your vocabulary. You really don’t understand what is wrong with having to wait 5 minutes for your coffee. Or why that big-city-guy from who-knows-where…

A couple of weeks ago I read the third installment of a series I really loved. I will refrain from sharing the name of the novel and its author.
Like any reader, as soon as I finished reading, I wrote my review. When I tried posting it on Amazon (I did buy the eBook, just like any normal and decent human being would), I received a rather concerning email.
I will not share the screenshot of the email as it does contain the title of the book and name of the author. In its place I have copied the body of the email below.
Dear Amazon Customer,

Stan Lee, 92, has just been reported in the hospital. We have confirmed reports that, a routine diagnosis, 3 months ago, revealed a minor form of eye cancer. We don’t know as of yet, if this is the reason he is currently in a hospital, or if there is another reason that brought our comic book mentor in. Stan “The Man” Lee has given us the greatest superheroes ever created, is the Patriarch of Marvel comics and has appeared, as a cameo role, in every Marvel film in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), not including several ’90s Marvel movies. Thank you Stan Lee for all you have given us and we wish him many more years of comic book awesomeness.
