“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Syriza is not "radical left"

AP, nor is it "anti bailout." It, like the European Central Bank, is opposed to "strict" "austerity" ie acting as if Keynes never existed.

Nice one Greece!

Well, I know nothing about Syriza other than the tiny little blurbs in DN!'s headlines today, including whether or not any of the party members have so much as heard the name of JM Keynes. What else have you heard?

I'm pretty pleased and I might not be familiar with the English connotations of 'radical' but (Συνασπισμός) Ριζοσπαστικής (Αριστεράς) translates quite literally to it.
