My reply: Well I am delighted to hear that.  Let us hope that this is a
sincere response to the marginalisation of the Left in this country.

As for whether big things will happen or not, it is impossible to say - of
course.  However I have a lingering suspicion that we might see something
remarkable in Europe - not unlike the Arab Spring. I cannot believe that we
can continue in the present with its austerity driven closure of hope.

If Kliman is correct and Capital recognizes the need for capital
destruction in order to restore the rate of profit and then decides to act
on that need we will see a remarkable period of class struggle.
