Lapavitsas: the Eurozone cannot be reformed, time to move on

Rather than the thoughtful but a tad wishful ideas of Yanis Varoufakis or the probably less thoughtful and more willing to concede praxis of the new negotiating team of Athens in Brussels, it is interesting to read what one of the leaders of the Left Wing of Syriza, Kóstas Lapavitsas has to say.

He acknowledges that the European Left is still immature for the radical changes that the continent needs and that there is in fact a most serious risk of fascism, for example in France, as result of the current stagnant situation. In this sense he advocates for Greece following its own path, leaving the Eurozone and restructuring the debt, preferable in agreement with Brussels, in order to be able to execute their democratic mandate of saving Greece from the collapse it has been pitted into and restoring human dignity to its citizens.
