Thomas Wieser hailing ‘reforms’ and downgrades democracy

Thomas Wieser has made the headlines again! After his recent advice (see here and here) that the first thing that should have happened in the Greek case was debt restructuring, he just applauded the current Greek government as the one that has best adhered to the MoU programs since 2010. This is something that we, at DiEM25, have been saying for a while now.
Mr Wieser misses no opportunity to attack DiEM25’s co-founder, Yanis Varoufakis. He accused Yanis of delivering long monologues in the Eurogroup that did not promote dialogue. Let us uncover the actual meaning of Mr. Wieser’s words: Varoufakis was not a lackey to the troika. He had the ‘audacity’ to outline the failures of the programs and offer new, constructive proposals. Obviously, Mr Wieser prefers those who believe “There is no alternative” and who blindly swallow self-destructive reforms.
But, astonishingly, there are many alternatives! Our European New Deal aims at a progressive and democratic European Union. This is our response to bureaucrats who owe their position to  undemocratic and opaque processes. Join us and let’s fight together!
