The Battle for Power in the Eurozone

September 27, 2012,
Claire Montanaro

It need not have come to this, that a situation of polarised impasse has been created whereby citizens in southern Europe are being told to endure conditions of austerity which are increasingly impossible both by their own governments and by officials far beyond their borders, and whereby those in northern Europe, facing their own fiscal challenges, are starting to refuse to subsidise the debts any further. Meanwhile, the bankers, overseeing bureaucrats and politicians, determined to maintain the status quo, are having to recognise that ultimately the imposition of a new regime depends upon the will of the people – and the will among desperate populations for further pain is not there. This could all have been so much easier if only the truth about the instability of the foundations of the Eurozone had been acknowledged from the start and the situation rectified, and if the rules of the Euro-Club concerning membership and economic criteria had been followed. It has been a huge gamble using tax-payers’ money, and the money has been squandered leaving proud countries in despair, suffering and rioting – a situation unimaginable a few years ago. Because of the reluctance of leaders to confront the reality of a growing problem at an early stage because of a fear of admitting the flaws in the European monetary dream, and for their own reasons of political and personal power, the situation is almost out of control: it is no coincidence that violent demonstrations have manifested in Greece, Spain and Portugal almost simultaneously. But – good comes from every circumstance, and the unravelling of this defective plan is necessary in order to enable the new era of simplicity and true democracy to be embedded. The time for obfuscation and pretence is over, and it is likely the Eurozone as we have known it is over too. There will be words of reassurance and promise from the leaders, no doubt, but increasingly, in this battle for the right to be, the power will lie with the people.  ]]>
