Back at university 40 years ago, I remember taking a course in Political Science about the size of political elites. The course was taught by Professor Karl Deutsch, a Czechoslovak emigré; highly sophisticated; highly empirical in his research; in love with models explaining how politics worked.
If I recall correctly, one of his themes was that the number of people influencing the political fate of a society was actually a very minute percentage of society. Perhaps a few hundred people in a country of small to medium size.
Suppose that the number of people required to change the political fate of Greece would be around 1.000 (Deutsch would probably have argued that it is smaller). Is it possible to think that, in the entire Greek society, there are not around 1.000 people of competence, exceptional character and high moral decency?
I can’t imagine that there aren’t!
