According to our (de facto) leader social democracy has been co-opted by the establishment, the left is squarely defeated after the fall of the Soviet Empire, communists and anarchists live in a permanent bubble, and the left is divided and in disarray everywhere. DiEM is about stopping the systemic crisis from consuming us by re-deploying existing institutions within the context of existing European treaties. DiEM has to offer coherent, moderate and realistic proposals on that matter only. We believe that the world after 2008 changed, that global capitalism received a fatal blow and that we will need to think things all over again. But we have no proposals about how to change the political economy. So the discussion is neither here nor there. Our proposals to resolve the crisis are moderate and could be accepted on their merit by all reasonable people regardless of political ideology and personal aesthetics. People carrying a broad range of political labels, conservatives, liberals, greens, leftists of all kinds, even right-wing fascists have shown interest in our proposals and appeared at our events. A systemic crisis can focus the political attention of the most divergent of groups. Whoever you are, good or bad, you are free to comment and even join DiEM and participate in policy making. The leader of this movement is of course a proud (yet erratic) left-winger but there's nothing particularly left-wing about our proposals and nothing particularly right-wing about how the systemic crisis is being mismanaged by the European establishment. What's happening in Europe is basically this: private bankers are bankrupt and you bail them out. What's right-wing or ''neoliberal'' about this? Nothing. But it's ''right-wingers'' and neo-liberals'' that enforce it. We say: forget about such categories. When the world changes, established political identities become obsolete.
