Funnier thing just happened right after posting: I showed it to my bf, and he's like, "Blazing it everyday? Is he talking about insurrectionism?"

It was a completely serious question.

In Turkish soğan (pronounced "so on") means onion. I have friend who tells a story about going to an English language lecture at his university and the speaker kept finishing statements with "and so on and so on....". The whole time all my friend could think was "and onion and onion...". I always think about that when I see Zizek.

Anyway, I think libcom ought to have a Zizek-themed fundraiser. Regular posters can post their best impersonations of Zizek on youtube and we can all pay a dollar or a pound or whatever to vote on whichever is the best.

Except it's pronounced 'ʌnjən', or 'so an', so unless they were speaking in the most hideous Texas drawl, it doesn't really work.

Our mission is to reveal the truth of the War for Southern Independence with particular emphasis on the contributions black people made to support the South in its struggle for independence.
There were an estimated 50,000 blacks who served willingly as Confederate soldiers and almost four million other blacks who stayed on the farms, plantations and factories in the South of their own free will. These blacks supported the Confederate army by supplying them with food and supplies. The ancestors of most blacks living in the United States today supported the Confederacy and have a right to be proud of their ancestor's service to the South. The Confederate Battle Flag is their flag also.

It's a schwa though, isn't it. So not so much "an" but more "uhn". But thanks for pissing on that bonfire Devrim wink

I've got a good one for you: I got a new job recently and today I went into my boss's office for the first time. She has Crimethinc posters on the wall.

Apparently our favorite British Trotskyist arose from his grave to pursue his posthumous dream of writing graphic novels about the rip-roaring adventures of a renegade British swashbuckler and her mild-mannered Turkish traveling companion:

(Not "ha, ha" funny, but just a mildly amusing coincidence.)

Quote:
There are forces that have rallied round him that are spoiling for a fight. Take the Alliance for Workers Liberty, once known as Socialist Organiser, and its newspaper to which Corbyn recently gave an interview. Its leading theorist Sean Matgamna wrote last month: “If Jeremy Corbyn wins, it won’t be the end but the beginning of the fight. A leader of the French Revolution once observed that ‘those who make half a revolution, only dig their own graves’. A Corbyn victory will at best be only half a revolution. It will energise the PLP and its backers in the press for a serious fight back. If we don’t respond blow for blow, with determination to win, then the rightwing counter-revolution will win. There will be a severe repression of the left. The chance of a new beginning for working-class politics will be squandered.

“If Corbyn wins, then the left should immediately go on the offensive. Irreconcilable MPs should be de-selected. Labour party democracy needs to be restored. The Labour party conference must again become the democratic labour movement. There is a strand of Corbyn’s support that seeks to delegitimise its opponents rather than engage with them.”
