Greece: Mainstream discourse dominated by conspiracy theories

Via ekathimerini (h/t  the Watch Project):
Mainstream discourse is dominated by theories and arguments that would hardly find a sympathetic ear elsewhere in Europe. At least, not to the same extent. There is no end to the crazy talk coming from the lips of politicians, priests, TV pundits – each from their own podium.

Neither the current government nor any other will ever succeed in cleaning up the mess at home before they find a way to tame the beast of populism. Government officials will soon be portrayed either as traitors or players in some global zionist conspiracy, and so will their successors and so on.
