Not since the 1930's has a far left party been in power in a European democracy. Comedian, author, activist, and presenter of The Trews, Russell Brand contends that Syriza's win at the polls in Greece this week is a victory for compassion and a strong rejection of the values of corporatism. Brand says that he finds it exciting that an anti-capitalist party is in power in Greece. “The reason I am excited about this is because Syriza are approaching capitalism from a completely different perspective,” he said. “If we, in our country, had a party like Syriza I would vote for it,” he continued.
