We’ll have more to say on activists in a bit, but the comments toward the end of this piece by this anti-neoliberal anti-ecb activist struck a chord.
One reason she and others like her are upset is that the ECB is anti-democratic. While I personally believe direct democracy would be undesirable I am a fan of the implications of her belief. Should our activists truly believe the ECB is undemocratic (and by their logic illegitimate and worthy of being disbanded and ignored) then please do tell how the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, the Food and Drug Administration, the Education Department and Housing and Urban Development are any different?
Something tells me however that you shouldn’t hold your breath waiting for the activist protests at Gina McCarthy’s next press conference or at a presentation by NASA scientist.
