Indications that, after Golden Dawn, the systemic establishment is planning a similar operation for the Left in Greece
by system failure
For the first time, the SYRIZA Leftist party in Opposition in Greece clearly precedes in recent polls concerning potential national elections in the country. The government knows very well that there is nothing left to do in order to reverse its negative picture and therefore it is possible to accelerate the application of new cruel measures, as lenders demand. Recent statements from Schäuble - Daiselbloom, through which they sent a message one more time to Greece, that "more things need to be done", are not accidental.
Together with the tactics of "artificial destruction" through which the systemic establishment is planning to give a more or less, destroyed country to those who will replace current government, it also tries to begin a "retouch" operation for the Left in Greece. The purpose is to force the Left to abandon "radical" intentions which threaten the system, a kind of "domestication" of the Left, and this shows that there are probably some hidden polls and estimations according to which SYRIZA precedes by a higher percentage.
SYRIZA's different approach stands against neoliberal reforms in Europe and recognized not only in Greece, but also abroad by many people. These reforms were adopted also by the social democrats in Europe as necessary and inevitable. An example of this recognition is Leo Panitch's analysis speaking at the REAL NEWS network (http://adiritos.blogspot.gr/2014/01/syriza-succeeds-in-greece-by.html). Panitch supports that because of this different approach, SYRIZA now precedes in all polls while the neoliberal parties of the government coalition are losing power.
It seems that, the European economic-political elites worry that SYRIZA may become an example for the Leftist parties of Europe on the oncoming euro-elections in May. This could start a "domino effect" of undesirable and uncontrolled rise of a totally opposed to the neoliberal policies Left in Europe.
All these explain the move of Adonis Georgiades, Minister for Health, MP with the Right-wing neoliberal government party Nea Dimokratia, who actually spoke about a potential cooperation with SYRIZA "for the benefit of the country" setting the terms of course, as well as a specific poll published by "Ethnos", one of the biggest newspapers in Greece, according to which, nearly six out of ten people stated that they want to see a compromise between the Right and the Left in order to govern through a new coalition.
It is also not accidental that, lately, the systemic "journalists" of the mainstream media in Greece treat SYRIZA MPs more "gently", since especially the most famous journalists play of course a central role in this operation concerning the "domestication" of the Left.
It appears that on the other hand, SYRIZA leader, Alexis Tsipras, is trying to gain some time and convince that he is willing to follow more systemic-friendly policies to calm Berlin in order to stay alive from the war against him in case that SYRIZA will lead an anti-memorandum government.
In a nearly destroyed country, delivered by the current government, any potential new political coalition which will be called to govern, will have to deal with extremely difficult problems and will be very hard not to retreat to pressure and not to compromise. However, history has shown that, those who try to compromise and increasingly retreat to continuous pressure, finally slip towards the side of the systemic establishment which gradually absorbs them.
The Left in Greece and Europe must show that is determined to give an alternative solution to societies, retaining its basic principles and fighting against neoliberal policies. The oncoming euro-elections is a big opportunity to prove this.
