Liberals exposed as reactionary scum
AN INVALUABLE insight into the mindset of the liberal bourgeoisie has been provided by an article in The Observer.
Helena Smith, Greek correspondent for the liberal UK publication, reports that the circle she frequents are not backing the radicals in the crucial general election.
She writes: "Everything has changed as certainties have crumbled. Many of my friends feel bewildered and fearful: bewildered that it should come to this, fearful of the dislocation from assurances of things past.
"In the topsy-turvy world that they now inhabit, almost all have decided that they will throw their political convictions to the winds.
"For the first time ever, they will vote conservative, casting their ballot in favour of New Democracy, the 'pro-European' party led by Antonis Samaras in the hope – no matter how slight – that Greece can be saved."
This is a lesson worth remembering - no matter how 'progressive' their rhetoric, the bourgeoisie have a vested interest in the continuation of the capitalist system and, when it comes to the crunch, will do everything they can to protect it.
Make no mistake, they would prefer the 'security' of fascism to the possibility of real social change.
Fuck the liberals! Fuck the bourgeoisie! Viva la Revolución!
