I have a shitload of catching up to do, especially because, in my time of technological challenge, I have not trolled the webs for fun material. I did, however, just post the following on Facebook.

“Isn’t maybe time that we cut through all the details and simply demanded an old school Workers Paradise with free beer and pluocrats dangling from lamposts? (But with maybe more drugs and less Isadora Duncan dancing.) It made revolution so much more simple. We’d have to get it right this time, though.”

I mean, I move back to the UK and student mob actions are on the street and the headlines scream how royalty (Charles and Camilla) were bodily threatened. Lively, right? I have to reflect a little sadly, though, that the confrontation is about funding and how the kids think they’re screwed -- not going the total the jugular and the overthrow of the whole fucking system. Shit, even Greenspan as good as told us 21st capitalism is dead. (No philosphical basis?) Maybe we just need to drive the stake through its vampire heart.

The secret word is Rise

Judge Trev -- RIP

First of all Welcome Home to Blighty!

As for the rest of happening...the home truths coming home to roost courtesy of Wikileaks, the just cause of students on the streets, snow underfoot, freezing pipes, the ever gorging bankers, the slash & burn of the ConDemnation, an empty chair left for jailed Chinese Nobel laureate, Assange locked up, one might easy to feel that something is rotten in the State of Denmark

I hear Denmark's quite nice. It USA that worries me.

Talking of dangling plutocrats, I heard that Bernie Madoff's son has just been found hanged.

Looking forward to your take on Britain and how it's changed or not, since last here. (I don't know when you left for America.)
In Brighton, you have the first Green Party MP. The rest of us get to choose between Blue Tories, Yellow Tories and Red Tories.

Revolutionary cohesion is vastly over-rated outside of the burned churches and beheadings of kings. The Greens have got the lock on what little of that commodity is around these days and what have they got to show for it? Bugger all.

I'd like to state that revolution is a lost cause now a days. I've been trying to get folks interested in one for a decade now. That's how long I've seen this garbage coming for. Keep in mind, I'm not even 30 yet. I'd love to see these towers fall and life flow through the cracks, but, as long as there are people who don't care, we'll just be waiting for the next revolution.

Don't despair, kid, you'll get your revolution. Just keep taking the pills.
