38. The Left was absent again

The saddest thing was that the Left permitted the extreme nationalists to appear in the front line of another big battle. The Left was absent for one more time. The Left feared that would be blamed by the mouthpieces of the system for the dissolution of this "wonderful" Europe of brutal neoliberalism. Tsipras in Greece and Corbyn in the UK were key figures of this lack of braveness by the European Left, when it should be in the front line of the struggle against this repulsive Europe.

Consequently, Nigel Farage and other nationalists across Europe grabbed the chance to steal the rhetoric of a Left which, under other circumstances, would be determined to fight. The European Left should be the one that should speak open and straight about the struggle against the bankers and the multinationals, not Farage.

Farage's disgraceful statement that victory has been achieved 'without a single bullet being fired', ignoring so demonstratively Cox's assassination, shows how dangerous the nationalists are, and the need for the Left to take the leadership of the struggle against the current European monster.
