Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The goal is 'reform' - i.e. wealth capture by the rich.

The crisis is a convenient excuse to introduce 'reform' not a solution for it.

The problem it is a solution for - i.e. popular democracy, worker power, and security - is never stated explicitly.

The Econo and the various Neo-Lib rags haven't exactly been hiding the aim, although they have done an excellent job of misdirecting the media since 2008, when there was at least a small danger that things could go the other way and the vampires would have their fangs pulled.

Arguably 'reform' and the destruction of Social Democracy has always been the goal, from at least the time of Maastricht onwards.
