This isn’t democracy, no matter what IMF/EU/”sensible” capitalists tell you

Slavoj Žižek in the London Review of Books highlights issues that are covered in Left Turn, namely that so-called austerity is a disaster and vulture capitalism must be resisted:

Greece is not an exception. It is one of the main testing grounds for a new socio-economic model of potentially unlimited application: a depoliticised technocracy in which bankers and other experts are allowed to demolish democracy. By saving Greece from its so-called saviours, we also save Europe itself.
