The newspaper clam that Syriza is a "far left" party and that it wants to renegotiate the greek government's debt.
I don't understand how that makes them far left by any extension of mind. Actually considering what happened to Greece their claims aren't any surprise. Normally far left parties have a much wider political program such as :
- Reinvent a new economical system
- Supports negative groth
- Forbid the usage of GDP as an indicator of a country's productiveness
- Ban speculation
- Try to ciminalize bosses of large companies
It really suprises me that Syriza is called "far left" at all. Also I don't see how they could be considered extremists or dangerous to any extent.
I know that the notion of "left" and "right" are obsolete (despite political parties continuing to self-labelling them with one of the two), but I don't see how Syriza has a revolutionary political program.
