One thing is clear, that Alexis Tspiras must stand firm in sweeping waters and against the rising tide. Historians will often say that European man is Greek in provenance. As citizens of Europe we know that Syriza is making decisions in constrained space and time, and that they should be proud -- whatever the outcome -- that they have sought to represent a demographic that extends beyond Greece and touches the heart of Europe.
It is of interest that in rejecting the bailout deal in their historic referendum the Greek people did not reject either the Euro or the European Union. Despite the economic unrest that Greece has experienced over the last few years, OXI was, in its purest form, an affirmation -- the Greek people still hope the EU will listen to them.
Some fear the standoff with the Troika - the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Commission - could derail the Greek recovery and spread to other countries re-igniting the eurozone crisis. Whether smooth sailing or a rocky ride, the voyage will be memorable. Lifejackets at the ready.
In a press release dated February the 19th addressing the so-called "single resolution mechanism" to be decided by the European institutions, the Council of the European Union stated, in what is perceived as a negotiation declaration towards the European Parliament, there was agreement between the partners that: "bail-in and not bail-out is the main guiding principle for bank resolution."
Brussels have decided the unravelling of the Euro and the wider European Project is unthinkable; in order to save the post-World War II consensus, principles and agreements are now void. The euro must be saved at all costs. Merkel has resigned to accepting the end will justify the means; a banking and political union must occur, regardless of the path of misery that awaits the periphery.
As I write, an MoD plane carrying one million Euros is being airlifted to Cyprus for UK military personnel. It must be a new and very literal definition of 'helicopter money'. And that's the problem. As long as policymakers continue to opt for radically different solutions in every case - then fear and loathing will never be far away from markets and now, once again, from savers.
