The party of the pragmatists

In his weekly column "Max's Column" for TBmagazine, Maxim Behar talks about the difficulties and changes in the Bulgarian economy and business and the only force that counts - experience.

Sometimes we are a pretty crazy, to put it mildly, society. Leftist politicians clamoring for a conservative free market call themselves right-wing ones. And in all this fuss we forget that ideologies died long ago and have been replaced by pragmatism.

Whoever wants to tell me what, at a time when real wars are raging on our borders, at a time when more than ever we need to make money and goods, or better still, 'money-prime', divide ourselves into pseudo-left and ill-right - it really is a waste of time and an exercise in phraseology.

What we need now is stability, calm, good productivity, and lots of innovation. So, I think if we really make ourselves a group of apolitical pragmatists, we might soon grow into a party and win some elections and others.

But until then, we all must work hard to prove that we are pragmatists.
