“In times like these, this clear voice for social change is a welcome relief from all the confusion and lies. Listen and you will truly hear a voice of reason, with sharp analysis and deep understanding, going up against the tide of injustice and oppression. Of crucial importance is the fearless opposition to the rise of the Christian right and its pernicious effect on the cultural and political life in this country. While youo may not agree with everything he says, he will challenge you with his insights and a clarion call to do what must be done.”
Reverend Earl Kooperkamp, Pastor St. Mary’s Church, Harlem, NYC

Does Ed St. George of the JTTF still drop by and browse books there?

I was just wondering because I'd like to have a talk with him.

$5-10 to listen to a windbag, rich boy, "exiled" cult leader? Wouldn't it be more fruitful to offer possible cult recruits incentives to come and watch this crap? Like free pizza or beer or something?

Why are the "International Revolutionary Workers" always local, ossified, and unemployed?

While I don't have much sympathy for Maoist cults, I do want to respond to "." that it's important to remember that, when "workers"--the people that capitalism views instrumentally as a labor pool--are in periods of unemployment, they're still working class, and capitalism still views them as workers. If we want to build an anti-capitalist movement that's based on destroying social oppression and class society rather than productivist and recuperable by the organs of social democracy, it's best to include our brothers and sisters on the "job market" and even those who have been discouraged from it and survive through those informal/unwaged economies that capitalism depends on to survive.

I don't think the most outspoken people spouting off about workers' revolutions have worked very much in their lives. Most that I've met are annoying trustafarians.

Well in my experience that's certainly true of some of them, and some of the others aren't particularly selective about who they run with as long as they give the impression of numbers. But I still think there's a difference, generally speaking, between "unemployed" and "sponging off mommy and daddy".

South Carolina tried revolution in 1860. Ten other states soon followed. They were unsuccessful.
