The main themes were democracy, transparency, accountability and democratic representation in the European Union system. In fact, at times, I wondered to myself how the political discussion in Europe has shifted so much to the right, that todays European “left” – such as Varoufakis – are calling, pleading, and organizing for nothing Left of the principles of democracy: transparency, economic justice (high earners and corporations paying their fair share of taxes), and democratic representation in Bruxelles. If this is now considered Marxism, we`re in bigger trouble than I thought.
