Which Would You Choose?
The easiest way to find out where one stands on many things, is to give examples, to show the given options. I have been asked by various forms of right wingers, of why I thought the way I did. Then, I answered their question with a counter question.
Imagine two groups of people, going out camping. For the sake of simplicity, we will call them "Camp A", and "Camp B".
In Camp A; everyone sets up their own tent, and manages their own supplies. If they lack sufficient supplies, or those they have might have taken damage, they must find a way to make it without enough supplies.
In Camp B; everyone helps to set up and pack up camp, before moving on. If one lacks the needed supplies, they all see if they have enough to pitch in, so that everyone has enough.
In Camp A; You get the tasks you give yourself, or you work for others, getting goods or favors in return. If you are unable to find someone to work for, or
Short pro union rant
So as some of you know, I'm a member of the carpenter's union in my town. Recently as of this week I've started an apprenticeship after almost a year as a materials handler.
For those of you who don't know, a materiels handler is like a pre-apprentice and he's basically a carpenter's bitch. A labourer except that members of the labourer's union make more money and have better benefits.
Now I feel very good about starting an apprenticeship, but at the same time I feel ready to adress a few issues. Both with the union and with the people who bash unions.
Now let me say first of all, I've worked both union and non union jobs in construction. Often union workers are accused of being lazy, overpaid slobs. There's a little truth in this, I've known plenty of union guys who were stupid lazy assholes or worse, stupid suicidal assholes.
But having worked both sides of the fence, non-union workers are hardly better. The average non-union worker makes about half of what a union worker makes and h
A Revolutionary Idea
May 17, 1856
Today saw me working again at those crude machines at the factory. Tragically I am afraid I must write of a terrible accident that occurred during the course of my daily work routine; Charles didn’t live to see the end of the work shift. His shirt got caught in the large gears when he got too close to the machines; I don’t think I could ever describe the carnage that ensued, yet the management had us continue working. By the end of my shift the heat that had built up inside of the factory from the blazing sun and the machines, had filled the air with the disgusting smell of decaying flesh and blood. How I had told the bosses that without proper safety equipment, this kind of incident was bound to happen on a frequent basis, but they didn’t even bother to answer or even acknowledge me. It has become apparent to me that they truly do not care about us and that to them we are simply pieces of fodder easily replaced by any man they pull in off of
ON ANTI-COMMUNIST HYPOCRISY
The-Necromancer, 30 June, 2014
As has often been said, one does not join the Communist movement because it is an easy aspiration. This is especially true in regards to the bloody legacy of the movement. Often, many Anti-Communists are eager to immediately highlight the excesses and crimes of historic figures such as comrades Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, and to a lesser extent, the misguided and failed endeavors of the Khmer Rouge. They will also make light of the continuous maltreatment of citizens of the DPRK, a country which in this author's opinion, is no longer even remotely Marxist in nature.
Time and again, this author has tried to explain and bring those concerned to an understanding of why the gross excesses, negligence, and crimes of the past were committed. Through a keen understanding of the Historical Dialectic, involving deeper looks at social and political conditions of the times, the author has always tried to express why such things happened in
The Dictatorship of the Proletariat
Dictatorship of the Proletariat – Democracy through Dictatorship
Written by: Geopex
Written on: 26 February 2014 – 27 February 2014
The Dictatorship of the Proletariat is a term which garners the attention and use of many individuals when such topics as Socialism and Communism are in discussion, and this can especially be the case in a conversation on the topic of the Soviet Union, or its various satellite states, but what exactly does the term itself mean? There is, indeed, a grave misinterpretation of the application of the dictatorship of the proletariat, in the terms of its functions within a sense of governance. This misunderstanding, of the general function of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat, and the understanding of why this misunderstanding occurs, is the topic of this piece of writing.
The application of the word ‘Dictatorship’ is perhaps what leads to this immediate conclusion on the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. Dictatorship is commonly underst
