I got a kick out of Contra's ripping into the "golden one," but I don't really care for this. It feels like they're just throwing buzzwords at me, and I don't really know what to take away from it. (She characterizes anti-fascists as "thugs in masks smashing things in the streets"?) More importantly they put kings on adjacent squares at 2:30, which is a violation of the rules of chess. As I mentioned before I'm not so fond of YT political types; I'd rather get my politics from reading serious stuff.

The video about alpha males was great, as is contra's one about free speech in my view. I found the video on the left interesting and thought contra made some interesting points. Personally, I like quite a few left and anarchist political youtubers and find them entertaining, and am interested in what they have to say but I can understand that it's not for everyone and it shouldn't really replace academic stuff.

I just watched the whole thing, it was an interesting lecture and I am impressed with Kotkin, I will have to check out more of his talks etc. Thankyou for sharing this, I was not previously aware of this guy and his work.

I like the fact that their wings are basically their fingers, cool or what!

Koalas are cute. Gibbons are another animal I am fond of, they are so cool and the way they move makes me laugh, they are also rather human looking aswell ofcourse but they are unique aswell.

Heres a video of a Gibbon playing and stealing some bananas, there are loads of cool Gibbon videos on the interwebs:

Orangutans and Bonobos are other apes I like, infact anything that is not a common Chimpanzee or a Baboon is fine with me because they are nasty.

Koalas are really the only cute marsupials (and arguably the cutest of all mammals); the rest are eyesores. I'd still take a sugar glider over a blood-sucking bat though. Kangaroos are basically overgrown mutant bunnies, and baboons are complete bastards from what I've read of Robert Sapolsky (great book by the way, A Primate's Memoir).

Here is an Orangutan enjoying a magic trick:

Observe how differently this Baboon reacts to a magic trick compared to the Orangutan:

And here are some Gibbons enjoying a feast, notice how well behaved and cute they are:

Well that went downhill quickly. The thread started with Murray Bookchin and the labour theory of value but by page 3 it's changed to libcom's answer to Harry Hill.

A video on Antifascism,the production style confused me at first, but the video itself has a lot of information and interviews with anti fascists from many organisations, groups and parts of the world.

Amnesty International have done a very good if grim podcast series from various political prisoners describing how and why they were imprisoned and the conditions they face inside.

So I found two interesting podcasts by the BBC that may be of some interest, one's a biography of Louise Michel

The other is a philosophical round table hosted by Melvyn Bragg on Anarchism

Boris Malagurski's award-winning Canadian film "The Weight of Chains", dealing with the breakup of Yugoslavia from a different angle - finally, exclusively, on YouTube!

Watch the film that has stirred controversy around the world, screened at cinemas across Australia, Canada and the US, as well as at film festivals in London (Raindance), Belgrade (Beldocs), Havana, Ann Arbor, Toronto, and many others.

If you thought you knew why Yugoslavia broke up, get ready for 2 hours of shocking facts that will shed a different light on Western intervention in the Balkans. Nicknamed the "Serbian Michael Moore" by the oldest daily newspaper in the Balkans, Malagurski will expose the root causes of the Yugoslav wars and explain that the goal was for the West to create economic and geopolitical colonies in that part of the world.

Who's in the film? Everyone from former "Economic Hitman" John Perkins, Retired Major General of the UN Army Lewis Mackenzie, Canadian economist Michel Chossudovsky, Canadian journalist Scott Taylor, former Canadian Ambassador to Yugoslavia James Bissett, humanitarian Vlade Divac and the list goes on!

This film was funded exclusively through donations, so please support the project by buying a DVD of the film through the film's website:

http://www.weightof chains.com/buy

Also! Please donate towards the next film that Boris Malagurski is working on: The Weight of Chains 2, which will continue the story where the first film ends! Watch the trailer and donate now at:
