A prolix critique of Syriza not that much different from Stansfield 
Smith's attack on the Chavistas even though it invokes anarchist rather 
than Leninist pieties. After an ocean of ink about how Syriza was doomed 
from the start, it advises its readers what the solution is:

"In short, if social movements do not directly hurt the people in 
power–and not just mildly embarrass them–or empower the exploited and 
oppressed–and not just temporarily mobilize them–then it may not be a 
worthwhile strategy. It may simply feel like one."


Get it, comrades? "Hurt the people in power". Gosh, why hadn't I thought 
of that.
