MK: Perhaps. But it is translation, and the question of "ensomatosi i 
rixi" - "incorporation (into the bourgeois state) or rupture" - has been 
put forward as the key dividing line within the Greek left for some 
decades now - there was even a book published in the 1990s with exactly 
that name - so it sounds more natural and less pretentious in Greek

line today in Greek society does not concern simply the question of
austerity. It has more to do with whether there is going to be a rupture
with the main narrative of the Greek bourgeoisie for the past five
decades, namely the attachment to the “European Integration” process."
