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 […]

What is Barack Obama’s Relation to Marxism?

September 6, 2012


In his DNC speech, Obama said that the CEO of a car company should know to pay the company’s workers enough to be able to buy the cars they make because then the whole company is stronger. A Marxist, of course, would know that this is impossible in the long term.  And isn’t it a […]

Selecting Stones Presents: Karl Marx on so-called “Gentrification”

February 7, 2012


‘Improvements’ of towns which accompany the increase of wealth, such as the demolition of badly built districts, the erection of palaces to house banks, warehouses, etc., the widening of streets for business traffic, for luxury carriages, for the introduction of tramways, obviously drive the poor away into even worse and more crowded corners. — Karl […]

Encyclopaedia of the Bourgeoisie: G. W. F. Hegel

February 4, 2012


Hegel, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich G. W. F. Hegel is the most important bourgeois philosopher, and the central figure of German Idealism, who overcame Kant’s subjective idealism and dissolved his antinomies.  He lived from 1770 to 1831, a period of bourgeois revolution on a world scale.  Hegel developed the fullest form of dialectical method possible within […]

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 […]

They Know Not What They Do (Luke 23:34)

October 17, 2011


Occupy Wall Street says that it is the 99%, but, then again, this would hardly be the first time that the petite bourgeoisie claims to speak on behalf of the proletariat.  The editors of Selecting Stones support the protests, and especially their European counterparts, but we also insist on identifying the protest movement’s true characteristics, […]

The Money Crisis

June 17, 2011


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 […]

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 […]

Struggle or Extinction? And Other Inexorable Questions

May 1, 2011


By Phil Ingram It has been said that any thinker who is proceeding along the philosophical road must eventually cross the bridge known as the most basic question of philosophy – materialism or idealism: the relationship of being and consciousness – before he or she can seriously begin delving into those “general theoretical, world-view questions […]

Why Ron Paul is a crypto-Marxist, even if he doesn’t realize it

March 5, 2011


By Larry Duvalier Everyone knows that Ron Paul always goes around talking about “revolutions.”  Revolution this, revolution that.  The fact that he talks about revolutions has nothing to do with why, as I will argue, Ron Paul’s thought it closer to Marxism than the illustrious congressman would care to realize.  Rather, it is specifically how […]
