“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

Tactics 2

Syriza validated my intuition on BBC radio 4 today: there is a "the whole world is watching" vibe going on for sure. Italy and France have become positively alarmed. And there was a very fierce discussion about it all on NPR today: the opinionators were center left and left. No Thatcherites in evidence at all. Thatcherite callers got short shrift. Even the Today show on Radio 4 have started weirding out about it. The non-austerity academic economics view, fully politicized, is now being given air time without ridicule.'

This is far from over.
