Haha. Priceless - got a lol from the whole family with that!

Is it just me, or does it also look like a house off of Mary, Mungo and Midge?

for a second I thought that was Anton Newcombe and I was about as temporarily concerned about him as I was excited for his upcoming black metal record...

From the comments section of https://theworkersdreadnought.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/bob-avakians-new-synthesis-a-critique-part-2/

long live marx engels lenin stalin Mao -Avakian
it is time to state openly and without fear that MLM has been surpassed.
Marxism-Leninism-Maoism-Avakianism
this is the future. instead of MLMA, we use the term ‘New synthesis’
Prachanda Path, was a path, Gonzalo thought did not quite come an ‘ism’. but with Avakian we can truly say Avakianism. but because of the great modesty of Chairman Avakian, he suggested the ‘new synthesis’ which is in effect a synonym for Avakianism, a qualitatively higher level in Marxist science.

And here's a pic from a better angle, which really makes you wonder, what the fuck were the architects thinking????

Perhaps it was commissioned by the owners of a certain vegan cake shop?

Dalai Lama has given up from next dalai lama cause Tibetan buddism has changed normal institution, whit capitalist aims. People from US thought that capitalism, selling Buddhism as books etc would help them fight back to china. That did not work but was against ideological aims what every self respecting philosophy has. Funny thing is that dalai lama is from royal family, his Highness is against whole hierarchy of Tibetan monks : ) Aint that nice, him has been get know Marxism at all, and speaking for it, as contrast to modern Chinese people whit new technology.

This isn't technically reading but I think this is still rather apt
From youtubes number one `Marxist`

Plus a few of those comments should be worth a laugh or two if you can stomach them.

So I was listening to this podcast where they were discussing an actual statue of the founder of the KKK, that I guess exists somewhere in the South. But one of the things they mentioned was how ugly it was. OMG, I looked it up and it's laughably bad. You have to check it out. I'm literally laughing out loud. Literally

This, from that unrepentant ignoramus, Louis Proyect

Quote:
I plan to write something about this at some point. Lapavitsas swears by
Keynes while Roberts swears at Keynes. Roberts is for Marxist economics
when it comes to Greece but what exactly does that mean? What possible
guidance could Capital offer when it comes to building socialism? Much
of running a socialist state (postcapitalist, to be more exact) rests on
pragmatism rather than Marxism. And this is not to speak of the
precariousness of trying to build socialism in a single country even
when it is immense and resource-rich as the USSR was in the 1920s. In
the early 90s Cuba went through a "special period" that made the
austerity in Greece look like the Garden of Eden by comparison, a result
of the Soviet Union going capitalist. What in Marx's writings could
solve the Cuban economic crisis? When a country relies on exports, it is
the market that determines its success or failure--not the labor theory
of value.

Well, more to come...

What a boob. I always suspected this guy never read Capital. This proves it.
