Change in Greece will not come from short-term strategies and tactics of seeking power, but from a long process of coordinated and planned immanent critiques. This political organization will not aim to represent itself in the machinery of parliament -- where the watchful eyes of the IMF and ECB will determine policy -- but will emerge from an organized movement comprising the disenfranchised, the working class, and the intellectual vanguard. It will not compromise. It will instead operate under an ideology for an emancipatory alliance of humanity removed from the spreadsheet, removed from the NATO, and removed from free-market directives. It will not seek to claim power in an election, it will be given it by the people themselves when the movement is ripe.
