So fucking powerful.

Hey Hey Ho Ho, it’s not up to working class people to take care of the poor - they’re poor themselves! You wanna help the poor? Stop asking poor people to give money, take the money from the rich! They’re the reason people are poor to begin with.

Fucking smug fucking charities.

You say you want a revolution?


"Without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement."

Vladimir Lenin, What is to be done? (1902)

Here is a collection of texts (a by no means complete one) that I think are incredibly important to the understanding of Marxism; an understanding of which is a fundamental necessity in intervening into the concrete actuality of the Class struggle toward bringing about the universal emancipation of human kind from the exploitation degradation and humiliation of the Capitalist mode of production; the International Socialist Revolution.

Dialectical Logic by Evald Ilyenkov (1974)

“With the seizing of the means of production by society production of commodities is done away with, and, simultaneously, the mastery of the product over the producer. Anarchy in social production is replaced by systematic, definite organisation. The struggle for individual existence disappears. Then for the first time man, in a certain sense, is finally marked off from the rest of the animal kingdom, and emerges from mere animal conditions of existence into really human ones. The whole sphere of the conditions of life which environ man, and which have hitherto ruled man, now comes under the dominion and control of man who for the first time becomes the real, conscious lord of nature because he has now become master of his own social organisation. The laws of his own social action, hitherto standing face to face with man as laws of nature foreign to, and dominating him, will then be used with full understanding, and so mastered by him. Man’s own social organisation, hitherto confronting him as a necessity imposed by nature and history, now becomes the result of his own free action. The extraneous objective forces that have hitherto governed history pass under the control of man himself. Only from that time will man himself, with full consciousness, make his own history – only from that time will the social causes set in movement by him have, in the main and in a constantly growing measure, the results intended by him. It is the humanity’s leap from the kingdom of necessity to the kingdom of freedom.
“To accomplish this act of universal emancipation is the historical mission of the modern proletariat. To thoroughly comprehend the historical conditions and thus the very nature of this act, to impart to the now oppressed class a full knowledge of the conditions and of the meaning of the momentous act it is called upon to accomplish, this is the task of the theoretical expression of the proletarian movement, scientific socialism.”
Frederick Engels, Anti-Duhring (1878)

yeah i got that too and also gillian rose’s book on adorno, finally got a copy of dialectic of enlightenment from this as well, they should really do this sale once a month or something
They couldn’t possibly do that, then they’d shift a shit load of books and they’d actually be more accessible for people instead of the occasional 3 for 2 offer at Foyles.

freerange-shrugbeard asked: You try crossing the Severn and claiming that Rugby is for toffs. It's a different game in my Mother's country.



Hey I said ‘English’ for a reason! The rules of upper classery and sport differ from country to country. Actually Lotte told me before that Whitby is the only place in England where boat racing is considered a working class sport.

I reckon golf is similar in Scotland, like in Scotland rugby is posh as fuck, but working class people totally play golf, whereas here in Australia it’s the other way round….Aussie rules is the standard working class game here though, bizarre to have football be slightly posher than something else, but here it’s kind of seen as a fancy continental sport for pretty boys who’re afraid of a few concussions…

Rugger is fairly working class in the South West, or at least Bristol area, as well. Very much a regional thing.

claeswar said: nice, i got myself basically every jameson book they have

I went with the Jameson book on Adorno because they have barely any books by Adorno or at least few of the ones that really interested me.
