political comment by failed evolution
After the heavy defeat in the recent referendum, the Italian PM, Matteo Renzi, announced his desire to resign. Renzi is a typical sample of the youngest politicians in Europe who restrict their action in a rhetoric of resistance against Berlin's orders inside eurozone. Another typical sample: the Greek PM, Alexis Tsipras.
But when he had to take crucial decisions, Renzi retreated in almost every aspect against the majority of the Italians. The most disgraceful decision was the relaxation of labour and employment laws. In the end, Renzi did what the big capital and Berlin dictated.
It is highly doubtful whether the majority of the Italians bothered to look at the details of the changes in constitution that Renzi wanted to pass through the referendum. Yet, it didn't really matter because Renzi and many other European 'leaders', still don't understand that the negative votes from people in most of the referendums are coming from the fact that they have completely lost trust to the political establishment.
At this point, of course, we have to assume that in the ongoing political crisis in Italy, Renzi could be just a puppet which takes orders from the economic oligarchy. In case that he has been pressed to step down and be replaced by another technocrat-puppet of ECB, the result of the referendum could be only an excuse to resign. Just remember the case of Berlusconi.
It seems that the politically unstable Italy, becomes the model through which the financial oligarchy wants to rule from now on. As described in a potential scenario for the day after the Greek national elections of 2015:
Neither the neoliberal nor the anti-neoliberal front will be able to form government. In that case, the political dead end through repeated elections may give the suitable excuse to see a technocratic government by banking puppets, which will be presented as the only viable solution. This sub-experiment has already been tested in Greece and Italy through the banking puppets Papademos and Monti. This "solution"-parameter in the Greek experiment could be proved a dangerous threat to European parliamentary democracy, as may be used in other countries in times of political crises, becoming permanent practice and finally, establishing definitely the sovereignty of the plutocrats against the majority.
