AKEL Leadership's New

AKEL is a party that is driven by big ideals. In search for perfect justice, as if it exists anywhere but death. In the 20th century your big idea was communism. For over 70 years you (AKEL leaders) served that ideal as diligently and loyally as one could expect of you. You knew things were far from perfect, yet you opted to keep the ugliness away from public view so that socialism could be allowed to prevail in the end. Until it collapsed under the weight of its own non-sense and you could not hide it any more. Then you re-invented yourselves, calling what for so long you so obediently served 'bad socialism'.

Nowadays, with the same zeal and indisputable passion you lead the way for making bizonality, a novel concept that bears the hallmarks of apartheid, a success. You believe it is the right course. You believe it with a passion that cannot be challenged. The same passion and conviction you have for your version of socialism. The young at heart will listen to you. I would too if I were younger. It all sounds so perfect. Peace and justice, at last. At least in your minds.

BUT DO TELL ME, if you were so massively wrong on socialism (version 1*) for almost a century what makes you believe you are right on bizonality? And how much credibility do you think you have to carry bizonality through? At the very least, do you see in "Turkey" the same monster you so criminally failed to see in the USSR? After your last the USSR was gone but Russia at least remained. A possible new will leave nothing except a once predominantly Greek Christian Cyprus in the history books.

* I presume now with a few free-market tricks your socialism is fixed? Or not?

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
