The questioning of institutional governance should be familiar to citizens of all nations on Earth.
That question was sounded during WW2, again during the collapse of the Soviet Union, again during the 2008 financial crisis, and again after President Obama failed to honor his campaign promises, and yet again after the Cyprus “Bail-ins”.
I talked with people from within and outside of the U.S.A. who expressed their feeling betrayed as they began to explore the truth, the deceptions and flaws of the “System”.
The Official Story Can Be A False Story.
The deception is world wide, institutional governance is a deception for the mind.
Seeing the question in a Greek news site was not a surprise, and I want to share it as a reminder that chaining our minds to the system is the problem.

What Is Wrong With the System?
What is wrong with this flawed democracy that we all brag about and praise as an ideal system of government but fails to provide?
What is wrong with such a system that ultimately encourages corruption at the expense of the people who put their faith and hope for a better future?
What is wrong with the leadership that promises one thing to the electorate and then stabs them in the back to remain in power?
What is wrong with petty-politicians and “representatives” of the people who fail to act on behalf of the people but thrive on self-indulgence?
What is wrong with the Greek people who fail to learn from their mistakes and continue to elect unworthy politicians and petty-political parties?
What is wrong with us all who continue to support such a flawed system knowing that it thrives on lies, nepotism and corruption?
It is evidently clear that people here in Cyprus and Greece have both been betrayed by; the political elite; the parliament; the government; law enforcement agencies; the Judiciary; the banking system and by other failed institutions!
To the dismay of the electorate, Greece is having yet another general elections for the reign of power has broken down; it broke down because the existing disgraceful system protects the establishment and not citizens!
Greek Parliament President Konstantopoulou Meets with Panagiotis Lafazanis
Greek Parliament President Zoi Konstantopoulou met with Panayiotis Lafazanis, leader of the newly-formed political party Popular Unity, on August 22 in her office. The two politicians had a conversation in front of the reporters waiting outside the office, where Konstantopoulou expressed her opinion that the government decided to resign surreptitiously, without informing the Parliament.
She also spoke negatively about the President of the Hellenic Republic, Prokopis Pavlopoulos, who chose to side with the Greek Prime Minister and not reveal the latter’s plan. Konstantopoulou added the country’s lenders are blackmailing the country, while they appear to have been informed about the government’s intentions before the Greek Parliament.
Panagiotis Lafazanis stated that the purpose of his visit was to inform the president about the formation of the new parliamentary group. The Popular Unity leader also added that the government’s practices have turned the constitution into scrap of paper.
After the meeting, Konstantopoulou did not announce if she would be moving in the same direction as Lafazanis. However, both politicians spoke against Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his decision to close the Greek Parliament, but also against Pavlopoulos, noting that he failed to comply with the official procedures.
Greek Government about Parliament President: “She behaves like a dictator – It was a wrong choice.”
“The Greek Parliament President is behaving like a dictator, she thinks that she is the institutional center of the Greek government, but she was simply a wrong choice.”
With these words the SYRIZA-led Greek government has signed its definitive rupture with Greek Parliament President Zoi Konstantopoulou. This is a first for Greece since no government has ever spoken publically against the parliament president, who is proposed by the prime minister personally.
