If this was just about Greece, I'd say maybe so but Callinicos positions 
himself in relationship to the governments of Venezuela, Ecuador, 
Bolivia and Greece as a latter-day Trotsky in Coyoacan. In the 1930s at 
least the Trotskyists had the excuse that Stalinist hegemony prevented 
them from growing into mass parties, not that this was the sole problem. 
But what exactly keeps Antarsya from becoming massive if it has the 
answers? "Physician, heal thyself", Luke 4:23. 23.
