One of the meltrogs said a while ago:

The images are not there to distract you they are there to enhance your understanding of the class struggle. As Wilhelm Reich might have said, 'Pleasure and comprehension go hand in hand'.

Nevermind the genitalia, the choice of fonts on the first page is eyewatering enough. Impressed by the phrase "you Autonomist Marxist two bob cunts", though.
