May 2013 be the best year yet
fishingboatproceeds: I mean, like, in all of human history. Don’t jinx it! It’s only just begun* *I’m in Australia. Hurry up and get into 2013 you slowpokes. :P
joerobsbanks: Seriously though, I hate those anti-Kindle hipsters Because they’re the same kind of people who will buy every Apple product and every “indie rock” record that comes out What you’re saying is “I’ve never met an actual information lover who used the internet” And 200 years ago you would have thought public libraries were absurd I still prefer physical books, but these e-books...
Golden Dawn members implicated in assault by BBC... →
class-struggle-anarchism: “A BBC reporter has infiltrated a meeting of Golden Dawn members and made a recording which implicates Chryafgites in the assault on SYRIZA MP Dimitris Stratoulis. Digital Journal reported Dimitris Stratoulis claimed three members of Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi) launched a murderous assault on him last Sunday, a claim vigorously denied by Golden Dawn.” Fucking assholes....
Music is a wonderful way to soothe the soul. It has been, is, and always be a refuge for me when I need solace. It will always be a comfort when even friends might turn against me. Perhaps I turn to that refuge too much, but I can’t help but be thankful for it in my current, somewhat melancholic mood. (Chopin is wonderful soup for the “soul” in such a mood, as well as being...
On the degradation of unemployment
So, I’ve been unemployed for a long time now… It’s not that I hate doing work. I like doing stuff that makes me feel fulfilled and that benefits others. I love to read. I love to learn. I do some stuff refurbishing and repairing PCs. Yes, it’s with a religious charity (and I do somewhat detest religion), but this group actually seem to care, viewing it as more than just...

A World Aflame
A little bit of writing I felt like doing. It’ll probably end up as part of a larger story, but I wanted to share this anyway for anyone that might happen to be interested. “I” in this story am somebody not entirely unlike myself. I’m still not sure about the background of the other fellow, he’s fictional. It stands as a one-off for now, but I really want to continue...
Banners and Flags (Second Revision) →
I’ve reworked and tightened up Banners and Flags. I cut out a few stanzas, moved things around. I can’t request any feedback there (I’m too poor for pro), but would appreciate any that can be given here.
Not sure what I'm going to do with this text
A little something I wrote today: As I sit here flanked by capitalism’s skyscrapers on one side, and the towers of the church on the other, I begin to ponder… What will become of this society? Is capital to consume and destroy the world (and by extension, ourselves)? Will we, as capitalism fails, turn in desperation to religion to save us, desperate for comfort in an era of decline,...
Fat Heffalump: I am SO OVER people using health as... →
sleepydumpling: “Health” is an arbitrary measure that is personal and private. There is no moral obligation to be “healthy”. Fat bodies are not public property to be managed/controlled. Even “unhealthy” people deserve to live their lives in peace and dignity. Fatness is not an addiction, nor is it a mental… This. All of my this.
Banners and Flags
Banners driven through our hearts, Our colours held aloft; We drive our flag into their lands, And chart our maps on pages freshly pressed. Arbitrary lines we draw - seeds of division, mistrust, Claiming possession of that which cannot be possessed. Unjust authority, That which causes us to rage against our brothers, our sisters, Our sons and our daughters. Our fathers and mothers. Always, we see...
Just saw a user with the name CapitalismIsLiberty on Youtube. Sounds an awful lot like SlaveryIsFreedom to me.
Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt =LYRICS=
I already posted this one over on my old WP blog, but since I’ve moved my main activity, I figured it worth moving this, what I consider one of my best sets of lyrics, over here. I’ve made a couple of modifications since, but it’s essentially the same song. I consider it pretty much final at this point. Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt Won’t somebody think of the children? Who’s...

I’ve provisionally titled this one Trial by...
anticapitalist: In addition to being racist, islamophobic and just awful, the Dictator also lacks a plot. There is no storyline. It’s just a series of terrible jokes. I saw the previews of that, and my first thought was “this is either going to be hilarious or absolutely terrible. Looks like it’s the latter. Will avoid.
And on these two rocks we must stand… Of reason, and of solidarity with our comrades, our fellow human beings. And then move forward to unity and freedom, with open minds, and hearts set free of the mental chains that have for the past decades chained us to the awful machine that so ravages our world. We only have one life. One, that’s it. I let go of religion because it dulled my intellect, and...

This is a lyrical version of a poem included in a post I made on this blog a while back, although the title of the song is identical to that of the poem (I have posted the poem over on r/Anarchism for the curious). ————————————————— The dollar sign, Altar on which all things are sacrificed...
We are the Crisis [lyrics] [draft 2]
Have you got your guns, Are you ready for the fight? This economy’s dead, You fuckers ready for night? I don’t need your information, I don’t need you! I don’t need your analysis I don’t need your corruption! …Well they’re readying the guns far away… …Tell me you don’t care! I am the crisis that you fear The one that will not go away...

On the Operation of the Modern Economic and...
The problem with the modern world is that the machine is… well, a machine. It takes its inputs and produces its output without thought or regard as to the effects of its action. A machine isn’t designed to think, it can’t feel, and its only actions are to either produce or, by function of not being operational, not produce. It knows no other thing. Its only purpose in life is to...
Bring Down The Machine [lyrics]
Liars! Frauds! Crooks! You strayed from your mandate! Again! Betrayed the public interest! Devils! Fascists! Thugs! Decievers! You sold us filthy poison telling us it’s medicine! Brothers and sisters, unite in the struggle… Bring down the machine… It doesn’t work for us! Hear the politicians in their native habitat Screaming and yelling blue murder Religious in their...
