Hi

Who's got a good name for a revolutionary organisation? Set up a pay pall account, and I’ll give £10 for the best one. Perhaps if we get a shortlist of three good ones we could put it to a vote.

Ol’ Lazy’s cash is up for grabs. Special marks go to ones that might have good URLs that aren’t registered to anyone yet.

Criteria of judgment? Potential for mass appeal.

Peace and Love

Hi

You'll get your money, but you'll have to do better than that. The winning name should be suitable for use on a global scale.

"Solidarity", "Popular Democratic Front", "Movement of the Libertarian Left"?

Bring it on.

colchester solidarity group - for libertarian socialism?

Hi

Not for me. "Class War" is much better, but still not quite suitable.

Hi

I like it, but it's not exactly catchy. There's a firm of benefit assessors called “Liberata”, can you dig it?

Hi

No. I'm not going to win my own tenner. That’s the economics of Denis Healey.

The Smurf Village as a Marxist Utopia:

The Smurf Village itself is a perfect model of a socialist commune or collective. It is self-reliant, and the land is not owned by individuals, but by the entire collective of all the Smurfs, if the word 'owned' is even appropriate.

Liberation?

Aug 31 2005 16:39

Hi

Ok. Here it is. I need one more name and I’ll put up a poll for all three + “other”. You can vote for a week. At the end of the week the person who proposes the most popular name gets, not a tenner, but £15. In the event “other” is the most popular, the libcom collective will receive a donation of £15. Don’t worry about pay-pal, if you haven’t got it, we’ll find a way.

So far…

1)

SMURF – oisleep/button

2)

Liberation – PaulMarsh

One to go.

Hi

You've got to be able to do better than that. I’m open to more offers, nothing so far really grabs my fancy. Anyone feel they could get behind FAILURE?

Paul, is the question mark important in "Liberation?"? I'm thinking it works better with the extra punctuation.

Hi

You deserve it more than these guys, but you’ll have to come up with a name, and not a silly one either. “The Justice League” would be shit, for instance. And no Monty Python stuff. Have any of the sisters got any ideas?

Porkadian has fallen on hard times, and doesn’t live rent free in his leaky domain.
