It's capitalism, stupid!

We are not unaware of the “friendly” rebuttal used by the peoplein the opposite camp with full stomachs. With subtle class irony,while dancing their establishment waltz, they claim that theprospects of a Greece and a world without expoiters and oppressed,without rich and poor, without capitalist bosses and wage-earningslaves is, at best, quixotic and utopian. In an equally “friendly”way, we reply: “A map of the world that does not include Utopia isnot even worth looking at, because it leaves out the only countryin which humanity will always be able to land. And when it lands,it looks beyond and, seeing a better country, heads toward it.Progress is the realisation of one Utopia after the other.” Thisutopian course toward the re-creation and rebirth of Greece and theworld will certainly not be easy. But it is a course infinitelyeasier and – from the point of view of results – plainly morerealistic than the dead end of the incalculable, futile andunbearable sacrifices to which the people and country are beingsubjected so that the plutocrats and their decadent politicalsystem will come out ahead. This true socialist road of developmentis the only mature and realistic demand of the times to which, ifthe people ever want it, their destiny will submit.
