How come you Marxists, with all your talk of the working class, always meet at the most expensive universities in the city? What worker would even step foot in a meeting at BU?

...and if you hang out with them, you too will soon develop that unsitely glazed look in your eye and uncontrollable twitch. Plus party line requires you to defend NAMBLA.

True to my word, I attended the Spartacus meeting in BU tower. Present were five core members: A hairlip girl, a plain girl, an intellectual girl, a skinny boy with a Russian Red Army hat, and a skinny boy with a high pitched voice.

First the skinny high pitched boy gave a rambling half hour Marxist lecture. Then Red Army Hat asked him a theoretical question, preempting real discussion and enabling skinny high pitched boy to speak another ten minutes.

After the boring lecture, they tried to sell magazine subscriptions and get one black and three mexicans to join. They were very patronizing to the black, bringing up his race constantly. All the core members of Spartacus were white.

Skinny high pitched boy stated that "families" are a conspiracy perpetrated by the capitalist bourgeoisie to enslave women and brainwash people. He crumbled when challenged on this point, since he himself had to acknowledge that he came from a family. An amusing side note was that I brought a toddler to the meeting.

While skinny boy claimed to have a family, he did not have a spouse or children. Nor was he prepared to accept that most Americans have these things, which makes a lot of inertia for any potential revolutionaries.

Hair lip girl asked me to leave a couple of times, since "we can't have babies around." When I asked if families will still exist after "the revolution," she said yes and got angry.

Red Army Hat guy shied away, when asked if he would like to read my parody of the original Spartacus manifesto. One can't clutter one's ideology with jokes or rival opinions.

In an another amusing side note, the black was a born again christian, there to bait atheists. He was cool.
