That being said, Andrew's tendency to superimpose his hopes for
socialism on Greece is a mistake. Syriza got elected because it
reflected the mood of the voters and even now there is little evidence
of a revolutionary situation. Demanding that pensions not be cut is not
the same thing as what Lenin wrote about in "State and Revolution". Keep
in mind that dual power often constitutes the basis for a revolutionary
transformation such as workers taking over factories in Catalonia in
1938. I understand that Marxists would like to think that something like
that is happening in Greece but I prefer to base my hopes on reality
rather than fantasy.
