LET THE RULING CLASSES TREMBLE

When I was a lad in 1906,
I joined a band of Bolsheviks.
I read the Manifesto and
Das Kapital,
and I even learnt to sing
the Internationale.

“I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.”

talking to new people is terrifying because u have to do all the polite stuff but u also want to know immediately what their opinions on social issues are before u get too attached

If cats could talk they’d not speak to cops.

limeflavouredlibertarian24 said: Do you think Obama should be impeached?

I think, in the Unites States and all around the world, the toiling and oppressed people should unite, organise, take action, and have the working class lead a socialist revolution. Remove those like Obama when the state is broken up, smashed by the proletarian lead masses, then with a revolutionary tribunal decide how the likes of Obama will pay for their crimes against humanity, their crimes against democracy, their crimes against the toiling and oppressed people, i.e., the vast majority of the world, their crimes against the environment we all rely on, and so on. Impeaching a president or a prime minister or what have you within a capitalist nation framework really won’t do much for the exploited, because the next one in power will most likely be just as much, if not more, of an oppressive capitalist stooge struggling against the people. A socialist revolution is needed for real substantial positive change. We, the working people, the majority of the population, must take back what is rightfully ours and control our lives democratically for our collective benefit.

limeflavouredlibertarian24 said: Do you think the Holocaust was fake?

No, I think the Holocaust was very real. I would think one should be able to realise that this is my view on the matter by looking at my “About” page where, among other things, I state I am a Marxist and that I am against fascism, i.e., things that would likely have gotten me killed during the Holocaust. Anyway, I find it immensely disturbing that anyone would deny or even question that the Holocaust happened. We need to fearlessly fight what helped produce this horrific genocide: nazism, fascism, capitalism, anti-Semitism, racism, white supremacy, patriarchy, ableism, homophobia, nationalism, xenophobia, and so on.

After eight months of a break from writing my novel, I have come back to it again. I finally finished the chapter I abruptly stopped midway through last November. It always really annoyed me during my break that I stopped in the middle of a chapter, for I knew exactly what I was going to write next in the chapter (I’ve had the majority of chapters planned for a long time), I just couldn’t bring myself to write anymore. Well, hopefully I will be writing every day until I finish this first draft. I have about sixteen chapters or around fifty thousand words left to write.
