The state's weak structures and a deep conflict between proponents of the right-wing and the left-wing, which can be identified to clan and territorial divisions in Albanian society, has been fueled by the same social model “new man” that has no understanding of how democratic society function and what core values are to be forged in order to have a stable democracy. The “new man” model accepts anyone that is dear to the party and that is the only value required. Love the Party and be ready to die for it. This model has created e very unique form of representation in the state decision making structure. Since the only value appreciated is the love and fidelity to the party all other moral and ethical values are not being considered. The result is the today’s Albania Parliament.
man” model that has a significant impact on the today’s society political
mentality is the fundamentals of fierce political rivalry and ambitions. The
authoritarian tendencies of the party leaders are heritage of the former
dictatorship regime that successfully rules over a “new man” society. A low democratic
political culture, a lack of democratic traditions and the search for
compromise also contribute to this situation. The conflict between the major
political forces has been ongoing since the collapse of the communist regime
and in 1997 it brought
years thousands of new Albanians have been educated abroad. They have
accumulated enough intellectual power to thrive in western countries when they
have decided to exercise their intellectual capabilities and enjoy the fruits
of their success. The majority of them have attempted to come back offering
their contributions to government, administrations and several institutional
structure of Albanian society. This is the biggest asset that
Albanian society is ready for this new model. They welcome new generation and
they are the source of their success, but unfortunately the political class is
not. Every single one of the young generation educated abroad has been brutally
whipped out of any government structure feeling the pressure of the eroded
political system. The survivors have been able to sort out a pact or compromise
to quietly serve due to their lack of support. Only in
The political class will never open to the new model. They will never create the path where valor and commitment will prevail. All major political forces that already using the “new man” model they found cheap in the beginning of the post communist era are paying dearly for keeping it. The scenario will get worse as the “brain immigration” is reaching extensional elevated proportions. Only in the last 4 months 250 medical doctors have left the country and the number is growing form professionals and intellectual of all different fields.
The solution is not political only. As much as the political class likes to take the lead offering solutions they seem not permanent because they have the tendency to extremely polarize the society only for political gain. It needs the efforts of every single Albanian to save the country. Every single Albanian has to understand that political parties are not corporations where they can be employed and waiting turns for their favorite party to come to power. If there is no interest from political structures to educate their voters on political battles paid by the society the Albanian people themselves have to be more active understanding how to promote the new model and abandoning desperate calls for protests and riots that will fuel more conflict and more poverty. Only the Albanian people that have dearly sacrifice for the education of their children abroad have to create the proper environment for them to come back and use their new learned model. Time is running out.
