George Soros tried to get rid of Yanis Varoufakis because the neoliberal regime could not handle Greece and Ukraine simultaneously
In a recent interview at the Greek channel, Crete TV, the former Greek Minister of Finance, Yanis Varoufakis, made some interesting revelations. Among other things, he actually confirmed what the blog thought until now to be an exaggerated far-right conspiracy theory. He essentially confirmed that George Soros intervenes directly to political leaderships, substituting political institutions in Europe and elsewhere.
Varoufakis said that, on June, 2015, George Soros tried to contact Alexis Tsipras via his own ‘channels’. In the interview, Varoufakis claims that he had no idea what Soros wanted to talk about.
As Varoufakis also writes in his book Adults in the Room: My Battle with Europe's Deep Establishment, for years he has been falsely portrayed by the pro-troika establishment and the anti-Semitic Right as Soros’s stooge in Greece.
Yet, Soros’s message to the Greek prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, came as a perverse vindication. ‘Fire Varoufakis! Europe cannot afford to have two open wounds at once – Greece and the Ukraine [where fierce fighting was taking place]. Athens must capitulate to Germany now so that Europe can dedicate itself to resolving Ukraine. For this Varoufakis must be removed.’
Months later - Varoufakis writes - a further, bitter vindication arrived when the EU and the IMF announced that the same debt swaps and nominal income indexed bonds that he had been proposing for Greece would be used to restructure Ukraine’s public debt.
It the interview, Varoufakis clarifies that this was not the reason that he left SYRIZA and the government. Indeed, Varoufakis left after Alexis Tsipras fully retreated to the creditors demands, despite that the 5 July 2015 referendum in Greece overwhelmingly showed that the Greek people didn't approve the bailout conditions.
Quite interesting conclusions could be derived from this revelation.
First, that the overlords of the global neoliberal regime, like George Soros, do not hesitate to wipe out - from every power position - even internationalist Leftist moderates, like Yanis Varoufakis. So, anyone who stands against the agenda of the global big capital must be politically eliminated.
Second, Soros' words consist a perfect verification of what we analyzed in the article The ruthless neo-colonialists of 21st century.
As we wrote back then, the start of current decade revealed the most ruthless face of a global neo-colonialism. From Syria and Libya to Europe and Latin America, the old colonial powers of the West tried to rebound against an oncoming rival bloc led by Russia and China, which starts to threaten their global domination. Inside a multi-polar, complex terrain of geopolitical games, the big players start to abandon the old-fashioned, inefficient direct wars. They use today other, various methods like brutal proxy wars, economic wars, financial and constitutional coups, provocative operations, 'color revolutions', etc. In this highly complex and unstable situation, when even traditional allies turn against each other as the global balances change rapidly, the forces unleashed are absolutely destructive. Inevitably, the results are more than evident.
Third, exactly because the global balances are extremely sensitive and the developments more rapid and unpredictable than ever, the global neoliberal regime has limited power in opening many fronts simultaneously. Soros indeed admitted this fact by saying that ‘Europe cannot afford to have two open wounds at once.’
And in the end, look what happened. Even when small Greece surrendered to the ruthless neoliberal priesthood, the tidal forces were so strong that contributed significantly to Brexit and other Union-dissolving sequence of events.
Inside this mess, in order to maintain its power, the international plutocracy turns now to its last resort: the far-right and the fascists.
