If he were from Venezuela, Bolivia, Vietnam, Angola, etc, chances are /leftypol/ would be much more willing to understand that the principles of one person cannot overrule the circumstances. Greece is also in a bad situation and is very much at the mercy of international capital. Varoufakis is very limited and could do better but that doesnt mean he needs to be thrown out entirely or that theres nothing to learn from him.

Well socdems can actually improve the lot of the working class, so that isn't exactly the best comparison
>b-but you can't overthrow capitalism through electoralism!
I know, but The Revolution™ isn't coming anytime soon, so we need something that will help the working class in the meantime
>b-but social democracy is imperialist!
Yes, in the capitalist core, social democracies tend to engage in imperialism. However, seeing as how those countries would be engaging in imperialism either way, it isn't really a net gain for imperialism. Also, there are first world socdems, like Jeremy Corbyn, who are firmly anti-imperialist. Then of course there's third world social democracies like Bolivia, Nicaragua, and Kerala, but they would probably make your head explode.

He is based for constantly redpilling people, but he is cringe for refusing to take the redpill himself even though he knows it exists. In his latest book he goes schizo mode and represents his internal ideological tendencies as fictional characters, therefore demonstrating that he is aware that he is cringe. Now he calls himself a corpo-syndicalist, he wants market socialism.

Oh no, I think this is pretty smart. Calling out the "liberal" establishment as not being truly liberal is a promising strategy in my opinion. Wagenknecht also started doing this >>161054

 No.166117

He (with the thing he's pushing now diem25) is a reformist of the EU which is impossible, the EU is designed by finance capital to be antidemocratic and controlled by unelected bankers and technocrats. He's blatantly anticommunist, look up what he says of the Soviet Union. The only good thing you could say about him is that he looked less bad than the rest of the rats in Syriza but that is a very low standard.

The problem with 'succdem' is not really the electoral thing but the replacement of marxism by keynesian bourgeois economics (which is what Varoufakis does, he's not a marxist), which can never deliver except in very exceptional circumstances, disappoints and produces cynicism in the masses and ultimately paves the way to the reaction like we're seeing with New Democracy governing Greece and we're likely to see in Spain when their '"progressive"" government that does not do anything falls.

It was something like Greece would refuse to pay its debts and end up crashing the European banking system while taking itself off the Euro and back on to the Drachma. Bizarrely, the German finance minister at the time was okay with this plan because it meant no longer having to deal with the fallout of the bad loans. He even proposed sending "humanitarian aid" to help them cope with the fallout. However Tspiras replaced him at the critical point of negotiations with the EU and betrayed the result of his own referendum after getting worked over in a conference room for hours.

I do think he has his heart in the right place. He does say pretty based stuff once in a while and he's interesting to listen to when he talks about the history of bourgeois economics and how bullshit it is. Much better than this crusty geezer Richard Wolff.

On the flipside, he seems to have a narcissistic trait, very attention-demanding. Wants to be in the spotlight. Terminal reformist that gets the better of him instead of a radical. Calls the KKE "Stalinist" which is a fucking shame, he shouldn't oppose them in parliament.
