Patriarchy kills and the media flushes

Patriarchy, capitalism and property are social phenomena that do not have the same starting point and history, but are intertwined complementing each other. So as long as we keep intact the concept of property, this free institution that holds humanity captive to its prehistory, no one and no one can be free and secure.

Patriarchy kills and the media flushes. For the murder of women in Glyka Nera.

Yesterday, what was a common sense (except for extreme right-wingers and patented racists) was formalized: Caroline Krauts’s killer is her 32-year-old husband, Charalambos Anagnostopoulos. Another womanhood, another woman murdered by her husband / lover / father / relative / rapist.

There is no room for psychologicalization or romanticization, things are clear. An abusive relationship from the beginning ended in murder again. A 27-year-old man was chasing a 14-year-old girl who met the criteria he set for completing his image and rotten worldview. To put an end to the abominations that try to relativize and obscure, the problem is not the age difference but the fact that a teenage girl is still in the process of gaining her autonomy as a human being. An affair with an adult man always involves the element of power and hierarchy.

No, it was not a fairytale wedding that Caroline lived through. It was a golden cage in which her abusive husband and later murderer turned her into an object that was simply an extension of his property. And this is where we need to stand. In this case, the traditional roles that so praised and romanticized the media all this time (perfect life, rich husband, “he had everything”, etc.) came to kill. But millions of women remain trapped in them and their freedom is oppressed. This homicide is not an isolated incident. It is the result of an ongoing structural crime that sometimes even leads to murder. That is why the insidious victim blaming of the type “But why was he not talking? Why didn’t he do something? “

The infamous role of the media

From the very beginning, the regime’s regime media began to pour out its racist culvert again. They found the culprits in the face of immigrants who allegedly enter and act completely uncontrollably in the country. There were attacks on prisoners’ rights, cries for tougher sentences and inconsistencies over free weapons and self-defense.
Up close and personal with the various (branded or anonymous) far right.

Once again the enemy was constructed in the face of the Other, whether he is an immigrant or a prisoner. When it was revealed that the killer was not the Other but the one who had the keys, the victim himself began to enter directly in the place of the Other. A secretive (or even explicit) sympathy for the white middle-class murderer began to manifest. The narrative includes the element of Caroline’s “threat” that she will leave. Caroline’s attempt to spread her own wings in life and the violent reaction of her abuser is reduced to “quarrels”. The murder of a woman is called a “crime of passion”.
Balaskas, the fascist trade unionist cop who has a daily stall in SKAI shaping public opinion, has gone so far as to give free legal advice to future female killers.

It is clear that the weakest always takes the place of the Other. It is a convenient, for the state and capital, social construction that is used not only to offer an illusion of security but mainly to trap the oppressed in a perpetual war between them and to offer the alibi to the state to continue the murderous policy fearlessly. his against the weakest.

It’s not going anymore

It would at least be naive to believe that feminism is a police issue or even worse that gender repression in general can be solved on a state initiative. It is time to act, to take to the streets. With women and LGBTQ people at the forefront and men accompanying us, we realize that we will never be truly free if they are not all free. But there is a basic premise: men must critically realize our privileges, to stand on the course of our lives and to realize when we have made even unconscious use of them, to change on a personal level. It is not enough to train our boys to respect women, we must all be constantly educated in this. Let us all work together to create the conditions and structures where women will be safe to start talking and building their autonomy. To create the social context in which Balaskas, Tzimeros, Latinopoulou and every piece of garbage that rushes to justify a womanhood because the woman wanted to leave will have no place.

At the same time, however, we must begin to talk about the root causes of crime. Crime in general is also not a police issue but a social one. The vast majority of crimes are rooted in property. In Glyka Nera, Anagnostopoulos killed Caroline because he could not bear the idea that he would lose her property. He killed the dog to blur the waters in an attempt to keep the other object of his property, the baby. Patriarchy, capitalism and property are social phenomena that do not have the same starting point and history, but are intertwined complementing each other. So as long as we keep intact the concept of property, this free institution that holds humanity captive to its prehistory, no one and no one can be free and secure.
