by system failure
A few days before the crucial elections on 25th of January in Greece, neoliberal dictatorship mechanisms in Europe have mobilized all the means, increasing the known propaganda of fear, as expected.
A latest "desperate" move, the trip of the Spanish PM, Mariano Rajoy, to Athens, in order to declare his support to the Greek PM, Antonis Samaras. (http://news.yahoo.com/spains-rajoy-tells-greeks-beware-impossible-promises-142113791--business.html) Both the Spanish and the Greek PM belong to the neoliberal Right, so, naturally, Rajoy came to support the cruel policies of Samaras, the ones that applied himself to the Spanish people with the same results: poverty, unemployment, social exclusion, and of course, evictions in favor of the banks.
The visit of the Spanish PM to Greece, is not accidental at all. It has to do with the rapid rise of the new Leftist party, Podemos, in Spain, which is gaining an increasing power according to all recent polls. (http://failedevolution.blogspot.gr/2015/01/spains-podemos-surges-ahead-in-voter.html) A party which came out of the people protesting in the streets and squares in Spain. Therefore, Rajoy's visit was a clear effort towards the amplification of the neoliberal Right front, as Podemos and SYRIZA declared their will to shape a strong alliance from the first moment.
The good news is that, banksters and lobbyists in Europe, appear to be in panic indeed, mobilizing their puppets because they fear of an "uncontrolled" domino of rise of the Left in Europe, which could be disastrous for their plans about the successful completion of the experiment in Greece, and its expansion.
It's also positive the fact that, in such a cruel economic war, things become more and more clear. On the one side, plutocrats mobilize their puppets in order to retain the control of the game and secure their dominance. On the other, the impoverished people who wake up and try to defend, or, re-conquer their rights, using the Left as a key weapon.
Samaras took advantage of Rajoy's visit, claiming that Spain, which is also in a difficult situation, has lent Greece and therefore, Greece should not speak about debt "haircut", because this would be against Spanish people. However, he "forgot" to mention that the European politicians and eurocrats made a clear choice to save banks (mostly French and German), when crisis hit eurozone, passing the bill to the European citizens. Samaras' statement reflects actually the old tactic of "divide and rule", thus aiming to turn the people of the European nations against each other, so that to prevent a strong unified front against the neoliberal catastrophe.
However, the positions of the Left in Greece, Spain and Europe, are very clear and focus on the real nature of the economic war, which is basically a class war. Therefore, there is a need for the creation of a strong, unified front by the European people against plutocrats who impose the destructive policies in every country.
ENEE representatives, the Greek and the German Minister of Finance, Gikas Hardouvelis and Wolfgang Schäuble, made new statements towards the usual line of austerity and reforms. All these, show only one thing: their agony to complete the experiment in Greece by any means. The best proof for what the plutocrats fear most, is the everyday war of statements and propaganda. And what they fear most, is the probability that the European people will choose to fight and resist united.
