Yanis Varoufakis: Spread the Sanders “Infection”

Former Greek Finance minister Yanis Varoufakis interviewed on Christopher Lydon’s Open Source Radio, here.

“What I think matters the most at the moment is the conversion of the Bernie Sanders political revolution into a lasting political party of sorts, a political movement that does not die out once the convention once the presidential election is over. What Bernie Sanders managed to do is magnificent, should have a dynamic future, and should infect, in the nicest possible way, American politics for many years to come.

“In the short run, there is no doubt that, even though I consider Hillary Clinton to be a particularly dangerous person and an unwholesome politician, nevertheless when you face Donald Trump on the opposite side you have to make sure that, somehow, we block his passage to the White House.

“What is absolutely essential is, assuming that Hillary will win, that we make her life complete and utter misery every time she drifts and slides towards the usual geopolitical menace on the one hand or favoritism of Wall Street and the powers that be on the other.”
