It was Dross22 who got us "off topic" and he has now been banned from this forum. All the criticisms that are made of him are justified, but I don't think that DiEM25 as a whole benefits from his having been silenced. His hiding behind a pseudonym and refusing to be identifiable as an individual don't help either him (assuming that he genuinely wants DiEM's economic and European integration proposals to become mainstream as I believe, and is not a provocateur, as influential DiEM decision makers say they conclude) or DiEM, if we wish to have a grass roots of comparable quality to a leadership that can succeed in securing the collaboration of a Costa-Gavra. In any case, to get back in now, if he wants to, he will have to learn to be more of a team player and know what to say, and when. As for the media, my initial posting on this subject viewtopic.php?f=35&t=1658#p31452
is what I believe. I do not think any purpose can be served by petitioning the media or expecting that they can or will become different to how they are.
On the point of DiEM25 staying a movement rather than trying to become a party, entire agreement. But it seems that the party option is going to be the policy, because that is what the DiEM decision makers are focused on. So the question is: how are "we" to deal with this change?
