Joschka Fischer: Forget this EU!

In Die Zeit former German Green and Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer makes the case for a smaller Europe led by the Member States and with a strong real Euro-Parliament consisting of national parliamentarians.

His analysis has interesting institutional points such as the demise of the European Commission but lacks any insight into the ecological and energy roots of the current Europe crisis. For someone who was once the leading figure of the Green parties in Europe this is inexcusable. Have the Greens become too much part of the capitalist-growth establishment?
