The Greek did not attack the cause of all financial problems, the existence of the 1%. The Greek 99% only voted for new political parties but they failed. Despite beautiful words the new government bowed to the demands of the European 1%.
There were hardly attacks on European leaders.
Tsipras said that most loans were given to save the banks and not to save the 99%. Wrong!
The money was not given to banks but to bankers and other people close to the 1%. Despite being an important instrument that caused the crisis, no bankers were ever arrested, not in Europe and also not in Greece.
During the crisis everywhere in Europe the income of the bankers and other servants of the 1% increased and the income of the 99% went down. I do not understand why Tsipras and his partners never pointed to to what happened in the rest of Europe, the rich became richer and the poor poorer.
It is obviously not enough to vote for new parties, other activities have to be carried out by the 99%. Now the 1% get even more grip on industry, banks and institutions to increase their income, the interests of the 99% are disregarded and the influence of politicians (obedient servants of the 1%) has become even smaller.
Other activities have to be undertaken than discussions with political servants of the 1%. The 1% have to be pressured. That did not happen in Greece. The Greek 1% transferred their money to other European countries and come back when the influence of Syriza goes down and old politicians again get more power. The leaders of Syriza have not understood that money and loans are not the most important problem. The problem is the 1%.
In the whole discussion about the sitiuation in Greece only politicians talked with each other and no word was said about the cause of the crisis, the existence of a 1%. The result is that the 1% won. There has been no attack on them and the influence of the European 1% is growing. Syriza obviously does not really know how to change the world into a better one.
Syriza is a nice political party but without attacks on the 1% nothing will change. The money and the power of the 1% continues to increase. We need something more than a new political party. We need small groups of 99% who penetrate in the private living sphere of the 1% with many small actions.
