As a Leninist and striving to be myself, this appealed me much, Comrade...and the strong irony in the satire :)loved it, wishes, devika
Thanks Devika, I'm happy to see that someone out there in webland understands this one. You've understood the satiric irony in one.I've been a Leninist and a Lenonist too. "If you want to be a working class hero / then just follow me." Ultimately, I've had to be a comradeharpist.
nice to have that response, Comrade...yes, ultimately it "me" the 'I' seeks and want to be :)wishes, devika
Yes, it's a satiric irony : imagine !wishes, Marcel.
Thanks Marcel.This one's obviously touching people.More political satire's coming over the next week.
you trickster you...won't work, i don't follow, ever unless they have sugar, hum ;)
Same difference, ain't it?And that Che! He's so god-awful cute-and fashionable, too!Saw a guy at the grocery with a Che T-shirt; of course, in my excitement, I just had to remind him how Che just loved to write about executing political prisoners without trial by a pistol shot in the head-what a classy guy!...dumbfuck could only say, "oh, really?'Now I know why Obama is President.
Thanks bandit.Never did have a Che t-shirt, badge or poster. What you end up having is an empty icon which people don't research and which they then fill with thier own meaning. Red star, Che etc as fashion statement. The real Commies I used to hang out with generally didn't go for that red consumerist stuff.Lenin himself apparently said or wrote that the revolution would be over once they started making him an icon, which is probably why Stalin make sure it happened in spades. Because the revoltuion was ideally meant to be about the people, not the leaders. Of course, Leninism immediately sells out on this very point.As for Lennon, I'm always amused by how many nationalists, capitalists and Christians etc love the song Imagine, which is based on the Communist Manifesto. Which just goes to prove, people don't listen. From the distance of Australia, I can't comment on the Obama bit, other than to note that I don't get it.
I guess the point was how folks spouting "good intentions" might actually adhere to a totalitarian agenda-all the TV babies here sucked it up with a straw.Of course, perhaps I shouldn't be so bold in my assertions? They do say there's safety in the herd...baaaa....
