It was only two months ago, when Paul Mason made a revelation about the plans of the European financial dictatorship (EFD), concerning SYRIZA in Greece. Through his article Why Greece’s Syriza party is not sticking to the script on an IMF deal, confirmed what lies in the back of the minds of the European plutocracy's puppets:
“In the script according to the eurozone, the expected ending is: Syriza splits; finance minister Varoufakis makes good his pledge not to sign a surrender and resigns. A government of the centre-left forms, with Alexis Tsipras now allied to the centrist Potami party and with tacit support from a liberal wing of the New Democracy party. Debt relief happens, but on the terms dictated by the lenders, and Syriza survives to complete its mutation into a centre-left social democratic party.”
The plan has already described by this blog in the article The global financial mafia promotes scenario 2 for Greece and the danger for the mutation of SYRIZA into a centre-left social democratic party, even before taking the power, in the article A new attempt to "domesticate" the Left in Greece and earlier in the article A "retouch" operation for the Left .
After recent developments, it seems that everything is progressing according to the schedule so far: Varoufakis was forced to resign from his position and Tsipras retreated under the extreme pressure imposed through direct blackmail by the EFD puppets.
The next step of the plan, will be the removal of SYRIZA's radical part, known as "Left platform". It is the part of SYRIZA which actually gives the Leftist identity to the party. Indeed, SYRIZA now suffers from decomposition trends that came on surface after Tsipras' capitulation with EFD, and the new catastrophic measures that the Greek parliament was called to vote, in order to avoid the sudden death through the ECB brutal economic strangling.
It is characteristic that the Left platform MPs rejected the new measures (32 voted clearly "no"), and the new catastrophic memorandum was passed in the Greek parliament with the votes of Independent Greeks (SYRIZA's partner in the coalition government) and the neoliberal parties Nea Dimokratia, Potami and PASOK!
Tsipras was forced to remove from the government some top executives like Panagiotis Lafazanis and Dimitris Stratoulis. Lafazanis is considered one of the "leaders" of the Left platform and took significant initiatives, from the start, towards the approach with Russia. Zoi Konstantopoulou is considered another member of the Left platform. Konstantopoulou, currently Speaker of the Hellenic Parliament, took significant initiatives towards the public debt audit, an investigation about the conditions under which previous governments signed memorandums with the creditors, and an investigation about major scandals concerning previous governments (i.e. Siemens scandal).
It is not accidental that the oligarchs in Greece declared a separate war on Konstantopoulou, trying to downgrade her role and image through ridiculous stories by the mainstream media. Konstantopoulou has recently brought hard criticism on Tsipras' retreat which led to the new catastrophic memorandum for Greece.
Obviously, the European bureaufascists studied SYRIZA's internal political “geography” very carefully, and one of the reasons that they insisted on catastrophic measures, fully aligned with the German leadership, was to remove the "annoying barrier" of the Left platform, according to the plan.
Tsipras was forced to reshuffle his government, and everyone now in Greece speaks about a temporary scheme towards new national elections in September-October. Then, if Tsipras choose to exclude the Left platform MPs from the elections, bureaufascists will be very close to finish successfuly the operation "mutation of the Left". It will be probably the fastest mutation process for a whole political ideology in history, a total defeat for the Left not only in Greece, but also in Europe.
However, the speed and the violence of this attempt of mutation, shows that the EFD paid an extremely high cost which may lead to its fall. Indeed, Tsipras administration forced EFD to show its real face to the European people and the public opinion has changed towards the support of Greece. Additionally, the strong antitheses emerged inside eurozone, which were hidden under the supposed solid France-German axis. Now that the European citizens realized that Europe became a brutal financial dictatorship, the next crucial phase of the war will be also the elections in Spain and Portugal. Greece can't change Europe alone.
In any case, more people now understand what the mutation of the Left would mean. It would mean that the Left would be absorbed progressively by the dominant neoliberal ideology, exactly as it happened with the Social-democrats in Greece and Europe. It would mean a crucial defeat for the European people in the ongoing class warfare. It would mean the establishment of the new Feudalism.
