Ruthless Communism Is Necessary

September 15, 2012

10

By Phil Ingram “Only a Hector can have a premonition that he will fall by the hand of an Achilles.” Coercive measures taken by society in individual cases are often hard and brutally materialistic, but as scientific editors of Selecting Stones, our hatred and contempt for life under capitalism has always proven to be more […]

What is Barack Obama’s Relation to Marxism?

September 6, 2012

2

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 […]

Woody Guthrie Today, and Woody Guthrie the Communist

July 15, 2012

By L. W. Denton Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of legendary folk musician Woody Guthrie in Okemah, Oklahoma.  Guthrie has long been a controversial figure in Oklahoma and elsewhere for the simple reason that he was a communist. Woody Guthrie is most famous for two things: First, that he wrote the song […]

The Dangers of Labor Leaders and Filmmakers: McCarthyism Revisited

June 15, 2012

8

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 […]

Occupy Tulsa Revisited, a follow-up on the Contradiction between Left and Right

March 25, 2012

5

By Larry Duvalier My previous article, called “Occupy Tulsa and the Contradiction of Left and Right”, contained a blatant factual error concerning the workings of magnetism.  My mistake.  Opposite poles attract — rather than repel — one another.  The principle of the dialectical unity of opposites still holds, however.  The antagonism between two repellant magnets […]

Occupy Tulsa and the Contradiction of Left and Right

March 5, 2012

59

By Larry Duvalier Nobody likes to hear someone jabber on about German philosophy, but bear with me for a moment. After the death of G. W. F. Hegel, the great philosopher of contradictions, his followers split into two antagonistic factions.  The dividing line between them was directly political: Left Hegelians and Right Hegelians.  To make […]

Communists win 20% in recent Russian elections

December 25, 2011

1

By Bruno Fournier Today marks the twentieth anniversary of the official dissolution of the Soviet Union.  A few weeks ago, Russian parliamentary elections delivered approximately twenty percent of the vote to the Russian Communist Party.  This is not some exercise in numerology.  There is nothing magical about the number 20.  And yet, somehow, it all […]

Rage Against the Machine is just some stupid rock band

December 18, 2011

4

Walking down the street, shortly after midnight on a Saturday, in one of the wealthier neighborhoods of Washington, DC, and what does one hear?  A yuppie house party, a festive gathering of privileged upper-middle-class bureaucrats in their late twenties, all singing in unison to Rage Against the Machine. “Rally ‘round the family…” “With a pocket […]

Life Plus Ten: Is Selecting Stones Self-Righteous or Ruthless?

November 19, 2011

4

By Troy Clavileño As the great lumpenproletarian poet and gangster rapper Tupac Shakur used to do better than anyone else back in his vintage form, let’s go see what our enemies are talking about. Is Selecting Stones really science or is it just a lot of “bombastic, self-righteously hyperbolic, and profoundly disingenuous rhetoric”?  “This sounds […]

Theses on Dead Prez: Abolishing the Family

June 13, 2011

7

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 […]

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

March 5, 2011

7

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 […]
