Greece is a deeply divided country. It has two camps. One is the “institutional camp,” which is presented to the global community and the international press. The other is what can be called the “people’s camp,” which considers the existing political regime a “Corpus Separatum” — a separate entity.
The institutional camp consists of the corrupt political system, the oligarchs, the academic community and the media — all soldiers in an army of globalization and multiculturalism. It is a system that feeds on the Greek populace, and, for its political and economic survival, depends on a strategic alliance with the Islamic countries of the Persian Gulf.
The people’s camp, which the international community and media ignore, has a totally different view of — and strategic approach to — Greece’s geopolitical present and future. This is evident in the latest World Values Survey (WVS), in which Greece participated for the first time. The survey, conducted on a sample of 1,200 Greek households in September-October 2017, reveals that only 7% trust their country’s political parties; only 13% trust the government; only 14% trust the parliament; and only 18% trust the trade unions.
