Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It depends on what you mean by "right."

Heidegger understands Parmenides to be saying something quite the opposite of those who came after. So, there is no agreement there.

And genealogy is important. If we are to credit certain Ancient Greeks with the very foundation of thinking about subject-object relations, then we can't ignore those who came before and troubled that very relationship. We'd be privileging the form of thought which dominated the next few millenia as somehow an originary idea.
