Zero Hour Contracts at Buckingham Palace

September 1, 2013


By Rick Skull How do you fancy working for the Queen?  You could even work at Buckingham Palace, rather than one of the royal family’s twenty-one other residences.  It won’t involve scrubbing the royal toilets either.  As a member of the Palace’s summer staff you will be responsible for selling likenesses of Her Royal Highness […]

Sheer Predictability: Labor Once Again Triumphs Over Capital

June 2, 2013


By Rick Skull Last night Robert Kraft, who up unto that point was considered to be the owner of the Kraft Group, waived his claim that the company constituted private property.  Mr. Kraft finally agreed to the generous offer on behalf of representatives of labor whereby he would be relocated to a city of his […]

The Reality of the Baltimore Free School: An Exercise in Lazy Phony Leftism

April 29, 2013


By Frank W. Strauch, Ansgar Magnus, and Bruno Fournier There exists in Baltimore City a project called the Baltimore Free School.  In a nutshell, the idea is to set up a non-traditional and somewhat informal school where volunteers teach courses on whatever it is that they may have special knowledge about, and anyone remotely interested […]

2013: The Year of Work!

January 6, 2013


The scientific editors of Selecting Stones have elected to nominate 2013 as the Year of Work.  That means we’re going to be doing more Work than ever!  And that says a lot, because we already do so much Work. We have already released an except from the upcoming book Yes We Cannibalism.  Within this year, […]

A Few Notes on Romney and Obama, and a Brief Explanation of all this 53% vs. 47% Nonsense

September 23, 2012


By Bruno Fournier Romney was caught on tape confessing his belief that 47% of the citizens of a State atavistically still called the United States of America are entirely dependent upon that State and will therefore, for some reason, not vote for him.  Obama, in response, made a big hoopla by claiming that his presidency […]

All Guns Pointed at Mitt Romney – The Con Man Cometh

September 20, 2012


By Phil Ingram We’re merely 48 days away from the next great victory of American democracy, so it comes as no surprise to the scientific editors of Selecting Stones that yet another trivializing distraction from real news has been endlessly recirculating this week within the reactionary media outlets in response to an offensive slew of […]

Why South Africa Brutally Murdered Thirty Platinum Miners for Having Class Consciousness

August 31, 2012


By Phil Ingram Marx makes the point in the Grundrisse that the world market already contains the conditions for going beyond itself.  Belonging to a specific phase of historical development, the world market is not defined by natural or master-servant relations, or by merely local connections resting on blood ties.  How does the exchange and […]

Recognition for the Work of the Labor Policy Institute of Oklahoma

June 27, 2012


A new upstart organization called the Labor Policy Institute of Oklahoma (LPI-OK) has seen some recent successes with a new video they’ve produced entitled “The Main Street Moment: The Struggle in the Heartland”.  As Selecting Stones itself originated out of Oklahoma, we saw it necessary to highlight the progress of another Oklahoma-based organization pursuing the […]

The Dangers of Labor Leaders and Filmmakers: McCarthyism Revisited

June 15, 2012


By Rick Skull There were some misunderstandings that resulted from my previous article on the failings of the liberal understanding of McCarthyism and the Cold War.  This forum was even mistaken for being a source of conservative commentary.  Perhaps the appearance of Ron Paul and the Tea Party as frequently mentioned subjects may have led […]

How to spot Right-Wing Propaganda: The Abortion Issue

March 9, 2012


The following image has recently been floating around Facebook, passed to us via a page called “Being Liberal”.  Leave it to the liberals to fail to recognize right-wing propaganda when they see it.  It appears to be a run-of-the-mill endorsement of the Pro-Choice position on the abortion question.  But take a closer look… Here we […]

Thomas Friedman Makes an Ass out of Himself Yet Again

January 26, 2012


By Bruno Fournier Two days ago, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman published another banal op-ed, this time entitled “Average Is Over”.  Even for Friedman, the article is below-average, or, alternatively, if our measure is sheer stupidity, then the article is highly above-average.  But we wouldn’t expect anything less from the New York Times, would […]

Why is there a Yoga Cult inside the Occupy Movement?

December 30, 2011


By Anthony Burton You may have noticed over the last several weeks that the scientific editors of Selecting Stones have been quietly publishing a series of articles dealing decisively and profoundly with the important subject of dialectical contradictions in the American heartland.  As always, our aim has been to concretely demonstrate how these contradictions have […]
