Yanis Varoufakis acted like a real man and stepped down for the greater good of Greece and Europe.
Now its the EU’s turn to man up. Unfortunately for everyone involved, there are few real men in Brussels, just power addicted, and power hungry, unelected banker tool sociopaths.
Via Automatic Earth…
Now that Yanis Varoufakis has resigned, in the kind of unique fashion and timing that shows us who the real men are, it’s time to clear the other side of the table as well. The new finance minister, Euclid Tsakalotos, should not have to face the same faces that led to Europe’s painful defeat in yesterday’s Greek referendum.
That would be an utter disgrace, and the EU would not survive it. So we now call for Juncker, Lagarde, Schäuble, Dijsselbloem, Draghi, Merkel and Schulz to move over.
It’s time for the Troika to seek out some real men too. It cannot be that the winner leaves and all the losers get to stay.
The attempts to suppress the IMF debt sustainability analysis were a shameful attempt to mislead the people of Greece, and of Europe as a whole. And don’t forget the US: Lagarde operates out of Washington.
It cannot be that after this mockery of democracy, these same people can just remain where they are.
It’s time for Europe to show the same democratic heart that Varoufakis has shown this morning. And if that doesn’t happen, all Europeans should make sure to leave the European Union as quickly as they can.
Because that would prove once and for all that the EU is no more than a cheap facade, a thin veil behind which something pretty awful tries to hide its ugly face.
Here’s to a real man!
A real Red Pill Man…Bravo Yanis Varoufakis!
