So, reforms don't work, right?
After all those months of doing de-construction work of the elite press we all seem to agree that the global neoliberal power grab project has hit the cliffs! And hard.
Bush's dream to reshape the Arab world lies in shatters. Aznar has been voted out of office. Berlusconi is licking his wounds and just lost two consecutive elections. Blair has become a lame duck. Chirac has fallen silent. The Polish Prime Minister (whatever his name is) utters absurdities like: The ongoing process of mutual understanding between European nations must be founded on Christian Catholic principles. Merkel has lost her messianic free market zeal and has been tamed by 'Locust Alerted' vice - chancellor Müntefehring.
Well, what are we wasting our time then and continue to spend our precious LIFE energies in debunking yet ANOTHER neoliberal sham project?
A che pro?
Neoliberalism is dead in the water. Look to New Orleans, Bagdad, Kabul, or - nearer to home - to the shabby hospitals in the UK, the wrecked Berlusconi economy in Italy, the unemployment situation in France's banlieues, the haemorraging of towns in the former DDR, the cluelessness of the wanna - be - tough - on - immigration politicians in Holland.
Und so weiter.
The greed driven arrogance of the neoliberal free marketeers has peaked three years ago when Colin Powell lied to the entire world community on live tv at the UN Security Council and Bush proclaimed his nation's alledged supremacy with the two words: Let's roll! invading Iraq.
Since then things have dramatically changed. Bagdad, New Orleans, Kabul, and ...see above!
So, enough already. We have done our job - and a good job it was indead - to help to change the political climate.
Now the time has come to look forward, to come out and to grasp the opinion leadership in our countries and to lead Europe with a fresh and positive vision!
It is our turn now to propose an audacious, new and revolutionary project. No bean telling please!
Where do we begin? Are their still folks around who have experienced the liberating spirit of being protagonists, of being revolutionary subjects, who dare to imagine a new world order?
I propose a crash course in acquiring the (much needed) beauty of revolutionary energy and sentiment. Emotions that are so powerfull to - first - make you weep! And then gain the confidence to change the world.
Let's start with this here:
