The economic policy definitely includes a new "quality" of state repression as a supplement. Today now that capitalism cannot hide its real face, social consensus can only be reached through violence. Through the courts' decision that judges the workers' strikes illegal, through water cannons, threats for levy en masse, through tear-gas, through "antiterrorist" operations. Through calls for self-control and through the screaming of the journalists. Only through these methods and these methods alone, will the Greek state become a successful experiment, turning the country into a region of fortress Europe and making it an economic paradise for the bosses.
The wager for us at this time is, more urgently than ever, to determine the line of history. Because Capitalism, its total poverty and misery that are imposed, is not a one-way direction.
