What’s up with the extreme-left, part III
And at the website of the organization Ida Gabrielsson will become president/chairperson of, there is a comment about Margot Wallström’s plan to democratize the EU – Plan D (as in democracy, dialogue and debate). At the website the plan is called “D as in dictatorship”. OK folks. The communist movement in Sweden was supported by a dictatorship (the Soviet Union) well into the 1960s and maybe longer. Today the European left is discussing how to democratize globalization, and create a European public space where citizens can debate politics. To think that communism, nationalism and EU-bashing is the way forward is ridiculous. Therefore, if you are young and to the left in politics, read Habermas and support Wallström’s initiative instead.
