Yanis Varoufakis, the charismatic brash intellectual who was Greek Finance Minister until this morning, resigned from power. This is something many need to learn: Freedom in a liquid world.
His style may have hindered Greek negotiations, yet he was free enough to take a decision after an impressive referendum celebration.
The Greek people have clearly spoken. I hope this leads to less austere terms, and not to unintended consequences of worse economic options.
As existential philosophy puts it, freedom gives hope though paradoxically being a leap in the dark. I hope that compromise and light emerge.
