There is blood on our hands again

(From the song 'Blood on our Hands' by Death From Above 1979).

What I'm clumsily trying to say is that here's a blog what I made whilst I should've been doing something better and that if you're reading it then you should be doing something better too. Also, the fact that you and I have the time and resources to respectively make and read this gumpf is why the World is so screwed.

Quote hunting...

I'm feeling the need for inspiration... and thought I'd share what I found...

All previous historical movements were movements of minorities, or in the interests of minorities. The proletarian movement is the self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interests of the immense majority. (Karl Marx and Frederick Engels (1848)

I even found that socialism exists in America ... who'd have thought it! (I'm only joking... I know there's a long history of socialism in America!)

"The democracy afforded us by capitalism is restricted, but we can no more ignore the attacks launched on our political rights than we can attacks on our jobs, wages and conditions. Both are important symptoms of a lack of confidence in the future on the part of the capitalist class. To maintain their power, privilege and wealth they must attempt to claw back with their right hand every reform wrenched from their left hand by generations of struggle. Hidden behind the barrage of propaganda about the need to fight terrorism are very real attacks on our ability to protest, and to organise to change society." - Taken from In defence of Marxism
