Tsipras' leap of faith

Tsipras's resilience kept Greece in Eurozone and kept Syriza government possible, to the dismay of hawks, sectarians & eurosceptics. Despite a number of tactical mistakes which revealed certain economic and negotiating limits of populism (despite its electoral effectiveness), his strategy of keeping Greece in Eurozone was ultimately successful. Last weekend he proved to be a statesman rather than an ideologue. Now he has the task of leading Greece towards sustainability and stability, which is ultimately what many workers and other citizens aspire for. In the circumstances this is the best legitimate alternative to eventually move away from austerity.
