Dear Mr. Chrysoloras,

Since you have moved from the language of journalism to the language of 
political science and social theory (which is the impetus of this 
academic list, beyond mere sharing of information), permit me to respond 
to the points you make for the sake of a proper intellectual debate. I 
respond to your points in sequence below -- and my apologies to all for 
lengthening even further this discussion.

I am very surprised to see you making here an entirely 
_formalist_//argument. There is already an assumption here that goes 
unquestioned: The fact that politics is some kind of game, where it is 
enough for an analyst to juxtapose different groups and measure their 
differences and similarities, as if they are indeed equivalent. But 
political constituencies are made by real men and women, with ideologies 
and beliefs, passions and experiences, prejudices and delusions. All of 
these elements carry specific histories, which in no way could ever be 
measured in any quantitative scale but require careful historical 
analysis of particulars. In real politics, there can never be 
equivalence of identities, unless human beings become machines.

To say, moreover, that only "the structure of XA and SYRIZA are similar 
or equivalent" is quite insidious in that it automatically silences the 
difference in "content of political discourse" which you acknowledge. As 
a result, the content (and its difference) disappears from the 
discussion. This gesture is symptomatic of the entire edifice of 
assumptions on which your analysis is based, but, pardon me if I remind 
you, that is a _political decision_ on your part to ignore the content.

Knowing your Laclau is well and good, but not very useful when you 
neglect your history. ALL Greek political parties are populist -- at 
least since 1981. The New Democracy Party specifically reached 
practically unfathomable heights of populism under both the Karamanlis 
and Samaras leadership in recent years, while nonetheless serving global 
neoliberal interests. That ALL Greek political parties are populist is 
the unfortunate indication of the degradation of Greek parliamentary 
politics, but it has been increasingly the tendency of parliamentary 
politics in most of the 'Western' world -- witness American politics 
since the Reagan era.

Interestingly enough, SYRIZA is the least populist of Greek parties in 
that otherwise terrible scale that implicates all. This is because 
certain of its constituencies have very specific leftist orientations 
that emphasize all kinds of particularities of identities, particularly 
in terms of gender and sexuality politics, politics of immigration, and 
biopolitics in general.

Of course, this is a slanderous assertion that doesn't fit the context 
of a serious analysis. It's precisely what such writings like yours and 
Mr. Kasimatis have been fostering in order to fashion an ideology of 
extremes. I won't even bother with this one. I will only ask you: how do 
you imagine that 27% of Greek voters, the overwhelming majority of whom 
are not SYRIZA members, voted for SYRIZA in the recent elections (and 
are, by all accounts ready to do so again), if your characterization of 
SYRIZA is true? Do you believe that nearly one third of Greek voters 
woke up one day and voted for a party that would strip them of their 
constitutional rights?

There is one thing to keep in mind that a lot of people seem to forget, 
or seem to want to forget. SYRIZA is not some fringe group. It is, at 
this point, a major political movement, with broad support in the 
population across classes, age groups, etc., and the premier party of 
parliamentary opposition. For people to denigrate it in such fashion, 
especially by calling it equivalent with a bunch of thugs, most of whom 
have criminal records or have criminal charges pending against them, is 
an insult not to SYRIZA members but to more than a million and half 
Greek citizens.

The use of the word "legitimacy" is never innocent -- not only when 
politicians use it (no matter where they are in the political spectrum), 
but also when academics use it (political scientists, economists, legal 
scholars, etc.) Again, there can never be _formal_ legitimacy. 
Legitimacy is always determined within a sphere of power, and even the 
most inclusive such sphere will remain structured according to some sort 
of constitutive asymmetry.

Yes, Greek governments are legitimate insofar as they have been elected. 
But this does not mean that all their actions, indiscriminately, are 
legitimate. If that were the case, then all broken promises, all acts of 
corruption, all clientelist practices, all _partisan_ actions (sometimes 
against the interests of the nation's sovereignty -- you know, I'm sure, 
how often this happens in a democracy) would also be legitimate. Are you 
ready to accept this? I can't imagine.

The fact of the matter is that our country has mortgaged its political 
sovereignty to elite global economic interests. That's a long 
theoretical discussion as to why etc. which we can't do here. But it's 
certainly not the only country by any means. It's also a fact, 
corroborated by the most famous economists worldwide, that the Second 
Adjustment Program is the confirmation of Greece's loss of sovereignty 
for God knows how many years into the future.

First of all, you can use the Hydra example if you want, but do your 
homework and mention to people that one of the leading figures in SYRIZA 
and current MP, Mr. Dimitris Papdimoulis, had immediately and publicly 
stigmatized the behavior of the restauranteur and his supporters. 
(http://www.zougla.gr/politiki/article/skliri-dilosi-papadimouli-gia-tous-idreous-forofigades). 
But the essence is elsewhere.

I agree that in democracy we have to fight by the same rules, but I 
remind you that democracy is not a game. It's intense and risky business 
-- it's agonistic business. And it is so because, though people are 
presumably free to vote with equal capacity, the asymmetries of power 
remain and they can never be bracketed from the process. And though the 
procedural rules are to be agreed upon, one's understanding of democracy 
will never be agreed upon in any democratic society. That's the case 
since ancient Athens. You may think democracy in terms of Rawls, and I 
may think democracy in terms of Rancière or Castoriadis. In my 
democracy, dissent is essential. Civil disobedience is one of the 
pillars of democracy. I can tell you, there can be democracy without 
consensus, but there can never be democracy without dissent. Not all 
dissent is just, of course. But neither is all consent -- so the 
question is not about justice. We're not discussing ethics here; we're 
discussing politics.
