By Dawn Occidere The El Paso Times reported on Wednesday that Mikhail Gorbachev, the man who oversaw the dissolution of the Soviet Union, will be visiting Ciudad Juárez this upcoming October.  You might be wondering: Why on earth is Gorbachev headed to the most dangerous city in North America, the undisputed Murder Capital of the […]

Every Day is Father’s Day

Thank God for that! Deuteronomy 1: 16-18 And I charged your judges at that time, “Hear the disputes between your people and judge fairly, whether the case is between two Israelites or between an Israelite and a foreigner residing among you. 17 Do not show partiality in judging; hear both small and great alike. Do not be […]

A note to fellow communards regarding the text: As scientists marching against anarchism of every stipe and variety – and as militant revolutionaries working day and night to combat capitalist exploitation as a concrete totality – the scientific editors of Selecting Stones are pleased to present to its readership this interesting excerpt from Troy Clavileño’s […]

Sharia in Oklahoma, or Who is the Bigger Idiot: State congresswoman Sally Kern, or Middle East Studies professor Juan Cole?

June 16, 2011

By Larry Duvalier Juan Cole just said something rather strange on his blog, Informed Comment.  The piece covers the arrest yesterday of five Pakistani C.I.A. informants by Pakistani authorities.  Big news, no doubt.  Cole notes that U.S.-Pakistan relations have recently been “breaking down” in “alarming ways.”  He cites the case of Raymond Davis, an American […]

Legalizing Gay Marriage While the Family is Already Abolished

June 14, 2011

By Anthony Burton In my last essay, “Theses on Dead Prez: Abolishing the Family,” I urged my fellow comrades who are still intellectually and emotionally enslaved to the American educational system – their educational system – to drop out of school immediately and start reading Marx, because the precarious conditions of existence for the proletariat […]

Leah Dieterich’s THXTHXTHX: Thankful for Death

June 13, 2011

4

By Larry Duvalier and Anthony Burton Leah Dieterich brings “thankfulness” to its lowest possible form.  Naturally, therefore, she got a book deal.  Her charming blog is a collection of hand-written thank you notes for, seemingly, everything.  From the horse’s own mouth: Leah Dieterich’s mother always told her to write thank you notes. So she does. […]

Theses on Dead Prez: Abolishing the Family

June 13, 2011

By Anthony Burton The solution is already outlined in the thesis: circumstances are changed by men and the educator must himself be educated. This is why the Bolsheviks had to kill the tsar and destroy his patrimony.  This is why Dead Prez is right to insist on dropping out of school – their school – in […]

Is Gay Marriage actually Conservative?

June 12, 2011

By Bruno Fournier Let’s face one of the most contentious issues of the contemporary U.S. culture wars head-on: Gay Marriage.  What I am about to present here may seem an act of sacrilege to many, but that is because it is so infrequently attempted.  The Gay Rights movement and the explosive issue of gay marriage […]

A Note on the Intellectual Bankruptcy of American Liberalism

By Tom Carpenter Heresy is a difficult pill to swallow but it goes down easier with a modicum of orthodoxy.  So, I’ll begin by confessing that once upon a time the Daily Show was a species of religious observance for me.  There were few more avid fans and — run if need be — bets […]

By Larry Duvalier Allow me to share a personal anecdote.  A few weeks ago, I was at the airport in Detroit.  I just so happened to overhear a conversion between two local businessmen, one of whom owned a few McDonald’s franchises in the city.  The two gentlemen spent the better part of a half hour […]
