Marko Milacic told Sputnik about life after death, selling out Montenegro's treasures and deputies.
Why is the block called "Resistance to Hopelessness?"
"We are here talking about the elementary civil defense. A group of young people, intellectuals, and non-governmental organizations decided to unite in order to offer Montenegro something that it is lacking — a clear idea of civil politics. We want to try to contribute to the unification of the opposition in Montenegro, as if it is scattered, it has very little chance of success in the fight against the criminal regime of Milo Djukanovic, who has been in power for almost thirty years," Milacic said.
What will happen if the unification does not occur?
Your team's slogan is "trust the people, not the parties." What do you mean by that?
"In the region, especially in Montenegro, in addition to various despots, despotism of political parties is especially significant. This is so true that political life has become impossible to imagine outside the party. It turns out that the question of ‘whether there is life outside the political party' is almost more important than the philosophical question of ‘whether there is life after death.' Partocracy eats democracy, and brings policy to total bureaucracy," Milacic told Sputnik.
"We have nothing against political parties, but we are against those political forces, which we observe in our country nowadays. We are against their engagement in business projects, prohibitions and egalitarianism. We are against the ‘political dinosaurs.' And we are opposing them with our young intellectuals, who will make no allowances for any mafia power or for opposition, which is often not responsible enough," Milacic continued.
What are the main points of your program?
"First of all, this is what I would define as a triple sovereignty: independence from the local usurpers who are the bandits in power; independence from the foreign usurpers presented by military alliances like NATO; and, finally, independence from the neoliberal economic concept, which is corroding the economy, society and the state, and which was imposed by rich ‘masters of life.'"
"We will insist on the citizens' involvement in the policy, those people who are systematically excluded from the policy. For example, we demand that 25 thousand people, according to the Swiss model, could decide a question on the referendum, and the decision would be binding. This is the way to direct democracy," Milacic concluded.
