Yanis was the man. Fuck the tie, fuck talking to everyone like they are some kind of royalty. Fuck the whole concept of royalty, actually.
Syriza is composed of all of the smaller leftist groups throughout Greece, coming together to fight the machine. Very similar to occupy in many aspects, only this was in a political sphere, not a populist sphere, and its was overwhelmingly left political (not a lot of libertarian or anarchist influence).
With that being said, Yanis is now talking. And its not pretty. In that short time, even with all of that momentum, the others that made up Tsipras got scared, and out goes Yanis.
Yanis sensed momentum, which is something most politicians are numb to. They simply don't move that fast, they are slow moving human beings (think of the time after the 08 elections..... nothing but waiting). In real life,when you sense that momentum, you go harder. You ride that wave. In politics, that wave usually scares politicians.
But most politicians arent Yanis.
This is disturbing but pretty in line with what seems to usually happen.
