I don't think the idea of Fener fans stabbing people is that funny. It's not as if people have never been killed around foo all matches in Turkey.

Come off it Devrim, you know perfectly well I found the Celtic supporters' response funny. I guess you've not completely washed out the everything-is-srs-biznizz attitude of the ICC...

Yes, there response is funny. I just don't think that all Fener fans will see it that way.

Is Khawaga really all that intelligent, or is it all a lot of pompous hot air sprouted within the safe confines of the internet??

Fuck off Jeff with your childish dig at the true revolutionary philosophy of our time. It's now a proven fact that if we end speciesism not only will we destroy fascism, but Billy Bragg will retire, Jeremy Corbyn will join Black Bloc and our premium bonds will come in!
Freedom is just a vegan cupcake away!

I do feel that I should take the revolutionary potential of bunnies into account more often. And if Billy Bragg retires then we'd be a fair way towards utopia!

Quote:
Pope Francis, leader of one of the world’s most notoriously conservative and reactionary institutions, has spent much of his papacy attempting to maintain the relevance of the church in the increasingly left-leaning political status quo of Latin America today. A few critical statements about inequality and the obvious problems of capitalism, however, have caused him to be viewed as a modern day Che Guevara by the majority of US pundits. Indeed, even much of the US “left” is unable to cope with the ferocity of Pope Francis’s mild statements: A joint statement of Bernie Sanders, Cornel West, the CPUSA and the Working Families Party denounced the pope’s “ultra-leftism” and “adventurism”. The pope has responded to these accusations in an interview with Max Ajl published at Jacobin. He referred to the US left as “petty bourgeois hacks”, “opportunists”, “bleeding-heart liberals” and “objective agents of US imperialism.”

The gathering – largely made up of clergy, Church of England officials, and workers and volunteers in Christian charities and campaigning organisations – heard that she was hoping to produce a Christmas book called The Bible According to Katie Hopkins. “I’m Jesus of the outspoken. Jesus had his followers; I have 600,000 followers on Twitter. It’s about leading the way – I am the new Jesus.”

Cheers for bringing this to our attention...

Just to clarify what the SPGB means by exploitation

Quote:
Exploitation. A morally neutral term, as used by socialists, to denote the historically specific form of the extraction of surplus labour. Feudalism was based on the appropriation of surplus labour as feudal tribute (in the form of money, produce or labour services) from the peasantry. Capitalist enterprises buy workers’ labour power for a wage or a salary which is more or less equal to its value but extract labour greater than the equivalent of that wage or salary. This surplus labour takes the form of surplus value and is the source of profit. But it is important to remember that, because surplus value is socially produced, an employee is not just exploited by their particular employer. Exploitation is a class relationship only: the capitalist class exploit the working class.

Almost makes me want to convert to catholicism.

Funniest thing? This from an administrator:

I'm not sure it's worth trying to explain this to you, but the reason we have to remove off topic comments once we have warned people not to derail a topic is because if, say, you were allowed to post that, someone on the other side of the debate would feel they had to respond. And so the derail argument would kick off again.

Moderating discussion online isn't easy, fortunately we don't do it to make friends
