The first corporate revolution - signandsight

The first corporate revolution - signandsight

Ulrich Schmid

The coup was trendy, it was modern and it was audacious. But it was not anti-capitalist. For that reason the European Left found it hard to endorse entirely. Purists criticised the liberal speeches of the opposition, their business-like tone, their heretical happiness, and most of all their good contacts abroad. European social democrats did not care at all what Yushchenko and his democratic followers were fighting for during the election. The only clear message that came from the disdainful and disinterested votes of socialists Prodi and Solana last summer was: don’t aggravate Russia!
