Why have the German Greens been so crap? Because they’re liberal reformists, and so the important thing for them is to be in office (deluding themselves that office=power). So these ex-revolutionaries and ex-terrorists (in some cases) give up on matters of principal so that they can push thru tiny little bits of legislation that amount to bog all. Sad really. They should have read Rosa Luxembourg’s ‘Reform or Revolution’, might have stood a chance then .
(Actually, I bet they have read it, just forgotten everything that’s in there)
